How to use Lasers and Digital Twins to Accelerate EV Manufacturing

May 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm BST

About this event

Large scale electrification of transport represents one of the biggest disruptive technologies in decades. In this scenario, laser beam welding is a key tool for manufacturing of e-vehicles. This one-day event reviews some of the most established and ground-breaking novel laser concepts and beam delivery systems, sensor technologies and closed-loop control strategies for laser beam welding. The event will also discuss current challenges and future perspectives towards the full digitalisation of laser beam welding, in line with the current trend of Industry 4.0.

Our agenda includes high-profile speakers from funding agencies (UKRI/APC UK), machine vendors (Coherent, Lumentum, Precitec) and end-users from both automotive and aerospace industry (Constellium, JLR), together with software engineering specialists (Flow3D) and WMG researchers. A round-table discussion will be facilitated to establish a better vision of the future and define industrial needs and priorities.



  • Discuss the industrial perspectives for the design of battery systems and e-motors
  • Learn about up-coming breakthroughs in laser beam welding
  • Demystify digital twins
  • Learn from industrial success stories and use cases


Who should attend:

This event is suitable for industry practitioners (those involved in the supply chain for electric vehicles and OEMs) and Researchers.
