Home Markets Automotive Hybrid Batteries HYBRID BATTERY MATERIALS FOR AUTOMOTIVE PROVIDE UNMATCHED PERFORMANCE Materion’s innovative hybrid and electric vehicle battery materials offer solutions to address the difficult design challenges faced by customers in the automotive market. Our side-by-side copper-aluminum clad material, called Dovetail Clad®, completely eliminates the challenge of joining copper and aluminum during laser welding to create a robust joint. The result is an interface that provides unmatched electrical and mechanical performance while enabling high-volume, low-cost laser assembly. MEETING THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF AUTOMOTIVE MARKET The Materion copper-aluminum solution addresses the cell designer’s challenge of connecting dissimilar metal terminals to their bussing systems. While the attachment within the cell stays the same, the laser attachment of the bussing system to the terminals outside of the cell is dramatically simplified. This solution eliminates high-cost manual assembly while ensuring reliability and performance.
