The term ‘electromobility’ denotes the application of electric propulsion for the transport of people and goods. The advancement of battery electric powertrains has demanded a variety of innovative approaches to electromobility, in response to complex challenges related to materials, battery and joining technology.

As automotive platforms have evolved to focus on the development of battery electric vehicles (BEV), batteries have become an integrated part of the vehicle structure. Lithium-ion is the primary technology in current use but nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries may be used (predominantly in hybrid vehicles). The chemical hazards are complex, owing to the wide variety of substances and different combinations of materials used. Consequently, there is a higher risk of exposure to hazardous substances during battery manufacture and possibly during vehicle assembly, if the batteries are damaged unintentionally.
In addition, the risks associated with extremely high DC voltages and electromagnetic fields demand that operator safety during battery assembly is the top priority. Atlas Copco enables manufacturers to mitigate risk through a range of measures, which include fully isolated sockets and quick change adapters, as well as insulated tool covers and ‘Slip-Off’ protection for handheld electric assembly tools.
