The winning formula – helping next generation engineers race to success

Posted by Mark Boyle on Thu, May 04, 2017 @ 12:30 PM

Recently we had a great opportunity to help the next generation of engineers compete in Formula SAE® Electric, a collegiate competition to conceive, design, fabricate, develop, and compete with small, formula style electric vehicles. The event is sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Our foray into the fast-paced world began when a team from the University of Pennsylvania contacted us after seeing online papers we published on battery tab welding. The team has nearly 100 college students designing and building an electric vehicle, and was working on improvements to their car for next year’s competition.

Battery pack welding: tips for improving tab-to-terminal connections

Posted by Geoff Shannon on Tue, Aug 30, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

How would we survive without battery packs? Whether to power our latest portable electronic device, power tool, or hybrid/electric vehicle, the removable battery pack is essential to our everyday lives. Tab-to-terminal connection is one of the key battery pack welding applications. Manufacturers need equipment, systems, and automated lines that meet quality and production requirements for these products. Resistance and laser technologies are both good options for integration into production lines, either as standalone units or for automated operation.

Battery pack welding: which technology for your job?

Posted by Geoff Shannon on Thu, Feb 06, 2014 @ 10:46 AM

"Ugh - my battery just died!" "Can I use your charger?" "Mind if I recharge my phone?"  Batteries are everywhere, and we've become increasingly dependent on them in many aspects of our daily lives: portable electronic devices, cordless power tools, energy storage, and hybrid and EV cars. Thus, the demand to manufacture batteries that meet or exceed quality and production requirements for these products, is great.

Resistance spot welding, micro TIG welding, and laser welding processes all enable high quality volume production.  The selection of one technology over another is usually made based on the application's specific requirements and the alignment of the technology to these needs.
