New paper – Material Joining Challenges in Cable & Wiring Systems of EV-HEVs

January 29, 2019

Electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technology is rapidly evolving. Technological advances now push change not only in battery systems but in cable and wiring systems as well. Complex electrical distribution systems within EV and HEV engines are driving cutting-edge R&D in materials joining, wire harness and cable network designs, and more. Tech innovator EWI has long been a leader in helping manufacturers develop and deploy innovative weld connection techniques and solutions to support these complex powertrain systems.
