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.
