Scale Up Your EV Production

Technological advancements and manufacturing changes for the automotive industry continue to drive innovation. To accommodate rising demand for affordable, eco-friendly modes of transportation with less moving parts, electric vehicles (EVs) equipped with high-capacity batteries are now the focus of the future.

Effectively replacing cars with internal combustion engines, fully electric EVs known as battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hybrid EVs called plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are boosting vehicle efficiency for consumers around the world.

Preparing to meet green vehicle production capacity head-on, manufacturers are proactively implementing robotic automation to address a wide variety of tasks. From aluminum weld methods for vehicle lightweighting to laser welding, adhesive dispensing and more for lithium-ion battery production, extremely reliable high-performance robots are rising to the occasion.
