The automotive industry is radically changing to fulfill high global environmental goals. One major success factor for higher sustainability in transportation is the use of new drive concepts, such as the purely electrical or hybrid drive. Partially or fully electric driven vehicles rely on rechargeable high-voltage batteries to store and supply power. The various types of batteries which are used in automotive drivetrains need to be optimized for longevity, performance and safety. Atlas Copco offers flexible and high-performance joining technologies that enable the full range of modern drive concepts – combustion engines, hybrid and fully electric driven vehicles.
