The Challenges of Laser Welding Batteries
By Alex Fraser on February 23, 2024

While laser welding is known for its ability to produce high-quality welds at high speeds, integrating this technology into EV battery production lines presents unique challenges.

EV manufacturers need to work with laser and automation experts that know how to address these challenges if they want to achieve a high yield and produce at a high rate.

How to Choose Thermally Conductive Adhesives
By Catherine Veilleux on February 05, 2024

Thermally conductive adhesives such as tapes, films, and glues are used to bond heat-generating components to heat sinks. Thermal adhesives not only conduct heat, but they can also provide structural integrity, electrical insulation, or electrical conductivity.

EV Battery Module Adhesives: Everything You Need to Know
By Catherine Veilleux on January 23, 2024

In EV battery manufacturing, adhesives are increasingly used to bond components. They are replacing mechanical fasteners as well various joining technologies. Unlike screws, bolts, and welding, structural adhesives provide a range of benefits beyond the bond.

All You Need to Know About Battery Thermal Management
By Stéphane Melançon on December 15, 2023

Battery thermal management is essential in electric vehicles and energy storage systems to regulate the temperature of batteries. It uses cooling and heating systems to maintain temperature within an optimal range, minimize cell-to-cell temperature variations, enable supercharging, prevent malfunctions and thermal runaways, and maximize the battery’s life.
