Photonics Spectra January 2022: E-Mobility Manufacturing Powers Opportunities for Laser Welding
February 6, 2022
Photonics Spectra January 2022 edition covers how laser welding will enable E-Mobility Manufacturing and Civan Lasers’ promising beam control.
In 2017, research analysts at UBS Securities disassembled a Chevy Bolt, the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle (EV), and a Volkswagen Golf, Europe’s top-selling internal combustion engine (ICE) car. When the UBS team compared the material compositions of the two vehicles, they unveiled one of the greatest emerging opportunities for photonics technologies in the automotive industry.
Read about the challenges lasers are overcoming to enable EV manufacturing applications such as batteries, hair-pin stators, and power electronic components. Also, how Lasers are challenging traditional wire bonding technologies for battery pack connection applications.
