Event description

Description

Introduction

The world of transport is undergoing the biggest change since the early 20th Century, focusing on a rapid move towards electric vehicle (EV) production and the parallel reduction in petrol-powered vehicles. Highly demanding new emissions targets have been set by Government policy, aiming to meet net-zero emissions by 2050.

Advancements to e-mobility technologies have been made, however, before we can reach the point where electrification becomes the norm, there are a number of challenges for industry to overcome. These include light-weighting of components, process improvements, welding developments, real-time quality assurance in-production, safety, flexible tools and jigs, and prototyping from components through complete vehicles.

Laser technology has been adopted by the automotive sector, principally for its ability to perform high-quality and high-precision processing at high speed, and at low relative cost. In recent years several advancements have been made in laser technology which have the potential of making an important contribution, and thus, supporting the breakthrough of e-mobility.

This workshop will include presentations from equipment-providers, end-users, academic and industrial researchers in the e-mobility field. You will hear and see how the latest developments in laser technology and how academic and industrial research are supporting the e-mobility agenda. A forum will be created in this e-mobility workshop, encouraging new thinking and industrially viable practical solutions.
