E-Mobility Welding Products
Fiber Laser Systems Configured for E-Mobility Welding Applications
IPG’s E-Mobility system welding products are specifically configured for manufacturing of electric vehicle batteries and power-train components. We refer to these products as solutions because in addition to world-leading hardware, they embody IPG’s extensive knowledge of laser welding technology, and are turnkey systems complete with a proven process and part programming for fast, out of the box, part production.
This range of products is representative of IPG’s solutions at different points in the manufacturing technology adoption life cycle; from R&D stations for concept and process proving, through welding modules, to fully automated manufacturing line segments.
IPG’s fiber laser welding components and welding solutions are available directly to manufacturing OEM and tier supplier end users, and to large system integrators who may have well-established automation relationships with the same customers. IPG enthusiastically works under tight NDA controls in multilateral partnerships with both end users and their preferred integrators to identify the best welding solution for the job, and to ensure a fast a successful project installation.
E-Mobility technology is evolving rapidly, and IPG has the breadth and depth of laser processing experience to ensure your changing needs are met. Learn more about IPG’s Systems Solutions from the examples below, and contact IPG for more detailed discussions.
The Battery Weld R&D Workstation is a highly stable and precise laser processing platform for EV battery and component manufacturers needing to make proof of concept parts and perform rapid laser process development.
The ILWS is a turnkey integrated welding system for small system integrators, or end-user customers that perform their own system integration. Applications include welding battery tabs, hairpins, control box and IGBT modules.
The EV-Cube Busbar Welding Module is a fully-automated workstation for welding tabs and busbars in cylindrical cell modules. Configurable for either manual or conveyor-fed part loading, the system is suitable for situations where the standard equipment configuration can accelerate availability of product parts.
In addition to optimized laser, beam delivery and IPG process programming, the available Real-time Weld depth Measurement option provides users 100% verification of penetration depth into the Li-ion cell casing
The Battery Welding Lasercell is an turnkey automated system configurable for a wide range of mid-power welding tasks, including Cylindrical, Prismatic and Pouch tab and busbar welding, lid and case sealing and motor hairpin cleaning and welding.
The Battery Module Welding Line is a fully automated factory module for welding tabs and busbars in modules. With conveyor-fed part loading, the system is capable of handling all standard battery module sizes and is suitable for small/medium quantity production welding.
The Battery Assembly and Manufacturing Line is an example of a fully automated and interconnected set of material handling and processing sub-systems that produces functional, tested cylindrical cell battery modules from component parts. With the flexibility to adapt equipment placement to suit available factory space, the manufacturing line maximizes productivity by streamlining part flow and coordination of operations.
