Alexander Battery Technologies commissions EV Flex laser welder

Manufacturing firm Alexander Battery Technologies has commissioned an IPG Photonics EV Flex advanced laser welding machine at its UK facility.

The equipment enables the company to produce large custom battery packs for on-highway vehicles and similar high-voltage applications. It features data logging and weld inspection capabilities to meet industry standards.

The laser welder uses machine vision technology and adaptable optics for the micrometer-precise welds that are key to the integrity and reliability of battery cell connections. Its Laser Depth Detection (LDD) ensures exact control over weld depth, to enhance the structural resilience of large battery packs, the company said.

“Our battery packs, crucial for high-end applications like e-mobility and robotic technology, are now produced with a high level of precision and quality,” said Mark Rutherford, CEO of Alexander Battery Technologies. “Our enhanced production capability has become a cornerstone of our robust growth strategy.”
