Dissimilar metal welding solution for electric vehicle batteries
Fortunately, tests conducted by us have proven that our portfolio of Fiber Lasers are capable of welding together the aluminium and copper found within these components.
This often represents a challenge as copper and aluminium naturally resist welding with each other as they are “dissimilar”. Our unique, patented ns welding process allows users of redENERGY products to join almost any metal, or combination of metals. Listen to our webinar on joining dissimilar metals with ns welding or Read more about dissimilar metal welding in our article – Dissimilar metal welding lithium-ion battery cells.
Crucial qualities of the SPI fiber lasers range
The trials, conducted using a single mode redPOWER Fiber Laser, demonstrated that the Laser’s high beam quality and brightness, can achieve consistent, smooth, defect-free joints at higher speeds – features which are crucial for most battery manufacturers. The Laser’s small spot size also produced narrow welds, which minimised the formation of brittle intermetallics.
In addition to the physical properties that the results show a Fiber Laser can attain, the compact environmental footprint and low power consumption of these Lasers ensure that the manufacturing process is just as economical as the resulting vehicle.
