The application of laser technology in the field of battery tab cutting has become an industry standard. However, traditional battery tab cutting only stays at a speed of 60-80m/min, which cannot meet the high production capacity requirements of current power lines. The high-power 500W MOPA pulse fiber laser developed by GZTECH can be directly upgraded and transformed on the original machine with the least amount of machine modification and minimal cost, doubling the existing production capacity.
In the field of lithium battery manufacturing, increasing speed and efficiency is always the goal pursued by enterprises. The battery pole plate non-destructive laser cleaning process can reduce the tedious process of applying adhesive before coating and tearing off the adhesive after coating, thereby improving production efficiency. At the same time, the purpose of the cleaning process itself is to improve the energy density and space utilization of the battery. Based on this, GZTECH has launched the 200W/250W MOPA nanosecond pulse fiber laser which perfectly solves this process and meets customer requirements.
This type of cleaning process is currently mature with domestic technology. However, the lasers required for it are mostly high-power MOPA nanosecond pulse fiber lasers above 200W. With the advantage of batch delivery of high-power MOPA lasers, GZTECH has gained recognition from many customers for maintaining long-term stability during use.
The main materials used for battery cell welding applications include copper, aluminum, nickel, steel, and so on. The high-power MOPA pulsed fiber laser can realize the welding of the same or dissimilar materials within 0.05~1.5mm, especially for the welding of dissimilar materials and the connection that requires no risk of weld penetration on the back side of the welding.
As the main traceability method of batteries, QR codes are indispensable on batteries. For example, the 2D code label on the metal shell is typically marked with a white code using Q-switched lasers. However, GZTECH has developed a new type of MOPA laser that can achieve non-destructive erasable white-on-black code marking, improving the coding yield and recognition rate of batteries.
In addition to the marking on the top cover of the metal case, a layer of blue film is often pasted on the battery case. For this, GZTECH also launched a 5W/10W solid UV laser source to solve the problem of marking on non-metallic surfaces.
The blue film serves as the "outer layer" of the battery cell and plays a protective role. If the blue film is not tightly adhered or if there are bubbles when it is applied to the battery cell, it may cause safety hazards due to damage over long-term use. Therefore, it needs to be removed and re-coated. Multi-mode lasers have a significant effect on reducing the viscosity of the film layer and not damaging the substrate. A 500W 12mJ multi-mode fiber laser has been introduced for use in this field.
As the last stop of battery life or for cascaded utilization of batteries, module recycling encounters difficulties in battery cell disassembly. Compared to traditional mechanical disassembly methods, laser technology can achieve non-contact remote disassembly, ensuring the safety of both the batteries and operators. Laser disassembly also minimizes the impact on other parts of the battery, making it suitable for cascaded utilization.
GZTECH stood out among many selected companies, which indicates that the products of GZTECH have been recognized by a wide range of customers. This is an unparalleled honor for the company and it serves as motivation for GZTECH employees to more forward bravely and inject more advanced laser technology into the lithium battery industry.
