High-performance components for eMobility

The Wieland Group joins the German Pavilion of the 9th International Rechargeable Battery Expo in Tokyo

As a long-term partner of the automotive industry, the Wieland Group offers high-performance components made of copper and copper alloys and presents highly efficient solutions for eMobility at the 9th International Rechargeable Battery Expo (Battery Japan) at the Tokyo Big Sight from 28 February to 2 March 2018.

The individual system components for electric motors include reliable substance-locking connections enabling highly efficient solutions for the electric machine, the powertrain and the battery. Moreover, bar-shaped copper rotors in induction machines, precision shunt resistors in battery management systems and special bimetals for connecting busbars in Li-ion batteries increase the performance of electrified and hybrid drive trains.

At the German Pavilion of the West Hall, Wieland presents

• Connector rings - connect stator windings in compact spaces, usually developed as customised solutions from prototype through to series production

• Precision shunt resistors – the electron beam welded copper-manganese strip enables extremely accurate measurements of electronic systems

• Specially designed bimetals – realised by laser cladding, the composite material allows the customer to benefit from the properties of different metals

For developing best solutions for alternative drive technologies, Wieland offers to partner with the industry with a high degree of competence from the early stage of development through to large-scale production. The basis for the development of these components has been the vast know-how in forming and laser welding. The components are usually developed in partnership with the most renowned automotive manufacturers which confirms Wieland’s know-how and position in the market.

The Wieland Group is a globally leading manufacturer of premium copper alloys and innovative customer solutions. The global Group offers best product solutions with more than 100 different copper alloys for many sectors such as the automotive, electrical and electronic industries. Decades of experience and continuous new and further development of materials, products and processes result in future-oriented innovations for industrial customers worldwide.
