REUTLINGEN (dpa-AFX) - German engineering company Manz Automation Ag (MANZF.PK) Tuesday said it has received a strategically important order from one of the leading companies of the e-mobility industry in the USA for a pilot system in which an innovative laser welding process will be used for the manufacture of lithium-ion battery systems.
With the help of this procedure, the quality and performance of the batteries can be further increased - at reduced production costs, the company said.
Manz AG noted that while the order volume for this system is only in the six-figure range, the company sees outstanding opportunities for significant follow-up orders in the coming years once the new process has been successfully qualified for series production.
Alongside the increase in the performance parameters of lithium-ion battery systems, the sustained lowering of their production costs, in particular, will be critical for the success of e-mobility. With the newly developed process for the electrical connection of the individual battery cells into a battery system through laser welding, Manz AG is driving this development forward.
