The rise of electric powertrains has created new joining needs when it comes to battery assembly. Batteries have become an integrated part of the vehicle structure and EV battery assembly is safety-critical. This demands smart and secure joining technologies in every step of the production process.

To supply the required energy from the EV battery, lithium-ion prismatic cells must be firmly attached to each other to form cell stacks. Cell-to-cell bonding presents a major challenge because the cells are sensitive, meaning that no heat or force can be applied in the joining process.
As a world-leading provider of bonding and dispensing technologies, Atlas Copco’s range of SCA adhesive dispensing and Quiss vision quality inspection systems enables precise accuracy of application, to avoid air pockets.
Depending on the requirements of the design, Atlas Copco offers one component (1C) and 2C applications. 2C applications are often used for cell-to-cell bonding because no external heat is required for hardening. In addition, the high metering accuracy and mixing quality of Atlas Copco SCA dispensing systems allows the most advanced 2C requirements to be met, whilst maintaining high speed and process reliability.
With innovative joining technologies and a broad expertise in battery assembly, Atlas Copco is your strategic partner for electromobility.
