E-mobility made with TRUMPF lasers

Creating the future today.

TRUMPF offers solutions for different fields of technology

The worldwide mobility transition is in full swing. The demand for components for electric cars and alternative drives is rising continually. Particularly high-performance components directly involved in the production of batteries, electric motors and power electronics for electromobility are at the center. More and more companies, predominately automotive suppliers, are also demanding new manufacturing solutions and technologies for alternative drive concepts, including the fuel cell. TRUMPF provides in-depth advice to its customers and facilitates new procedures.

The laser is at the center of many solutions. It connects battery cells into modules or packs. It ensures tightness and crash safety when joining battery packs and trays. It scores highly thanks to its green wavelength when copper welding contact parts without spatter. And it provides high-tensile connections in e-drives which withstand the highly dynamic requirements.

TRUMPF is your contact for automated production processes and networked systems of the future.

TRUMPF stands for industry-standard complete solutions for the production of all components in a battery pack. We cover the entire sheet metal process chain with our comprehensive expertise. Just one example: our 2D laser cutting machines, bending machines and laser welding cells are used for manufacturing battery trays in interlinked processes.

Our integrated TruConnect software solutions make it possible to produce with process reliability and to have seamless documentation of the production history. Furthermore, the Condition Based Services from TRUMPF increase the technical availability and productivity of your networked laser systems.

1. Battery pack and tray

Using the laser, all interior parts of a battery as well as its housing are welded with a high degree of precision – and always with process reliability thanks to an intelligent sensor system. The precision tool is a winner in the manufacturing and integration of cooling systems in batteries as well.

2. Battery cells and modules

Battery cells are connected into modules or packs with the busbar welding procedure. The live rail is designated as the busbar. Prismatic cells or cell modules can be connected with like materials (Al/Al or Cu/Cu) as well as with mixed combinations (for example, Al/Cu).

3. Power electronics

You can achieve pinpoint contacting in complex electronic control units with the laser. Our lasers with green wavelength and sufficient power mean that copper contacts in electric cars can be processed highly productively and practically without any spatter.
