Our newly developed beam source with visible green wavelength – whether pulsed or continuous wave – welds copper connections with minimum heat input, high reproducibility and with almost no spatter.
TRUMPF facilitates a multitude of applications within the production of control and regulation assemblies and power converters. For hardly any other tool is better than the laser for processing these intricate and sensitive components for electric cars. Our laser sources are under constant further development, contributing to the improvement of specific joining results, for example in pinpoint contacting in complex and thermally sensitive electronic components. Furthermore, industrially mature high-power lasers with visible wavelengths help ensure that copper contacts in electric cars can be processed more productively and with almost no spatter, also due to their high absorption characteristics.
Laser welding in power electronics: the three most important applications at a glance
Power electronics in e-mobility: what advantages are there to laser welding?
You can weld contacts and copper connections with no contact and pin-point precision. You benefit from the defined energy input and can rely on reproducible process results. TRUMPF provides the laser source, sensor system and optics from a single source – offering a customized, turnkey complete package for every welding application in the area of power electronics.
You are flexible as you can easily process different applications with the same tool – and you can also weld remotely with our programmable focusing optics of the PFO range. TRUMPF also has a unique selling point in the market with the green laser for copper welding.
An overview of our solutions for applications in power electronics
The BrightLine Weld option for TruDisk lasers offers the option of virtually spatter-free welding, great welding depth with a high feed rate as well as outstanding beam quality.
Benefit from our optics for remote welding: using mirrors, the laser beam can be quickly positioned in any specified position within the processing field, or be guided along any path to create different seam geometries.
TRUMPF image processing detects characteristics on components and ensures that welding is always implemented at the correct location. The operator no longer has to reprogram each weld seam individually with this solution.
