Better Joining Technology for Lithium Battery Packs

December 17, 2020

The integrity and reliability of joints in lithium-ion battery packs is critically important to manufacturers in industries ranging from automotive to consumer electronics to aerospace. If battery packs fail, it can result in more than just a faulty product — it can actually be a threat to public safety.

Many welding techniques are used to join cells to tabs and busbars, but all have their downsides. A relatively new process, pulsed arc welding has been studied at EWI, and shows great potential as a more dependable, more secure way to assemble battery packs.
