Battery Systems in Car Body Engineering 2019

Innovative solutions for the integration of batteries and battery systems into the car body

The foot has been taken off the break - after a hesitant start, the change of direction in the automotive industry towards e-mobility is finally in full swing. Many current projects are still under lock and key, but a few models have already been launched.

All OEMs are working on developing their own electrification strategy. Some of these strategies differ significantly from one another, they range from integrating electric vehicles into existing platform structures to creating EVs with completely new vehicle architectures. As different as the approaches may be, there is one questions that all OEMs must answer:

Taking into account safety, weight, function, cost and production efficiency etc., how can the battery best be integrated into the respective car body structure?

To what extent can the battery box serve as a structural element? Which functional integration options are being considered or implemented?  Where are the new crash load paths? Which adjustments are necessary in material selection and joining technology? Which solutions for battery heat management are possible, and what influence do they have on the integration of the battery into the body? Which production technologies exist or need to be developed? And where might the cooperation between different departments at an OEM change as a result of the new processes?

These and many other questions will be addressed at the new Battery Systems in Car Body Engineering conference, which is held in Bad Nauheim, Germany, on 26-27 June, 2019.

Focus topics:

  • Current solutions for car body and battery design and construction, e.g. in terms of weight, crash load paths, heat management, etc.
  • Current solutions for battery module or cell assembly
  • Innovative approaches for the use of new and proven joining technology
  • Efficient thermal management solutions and their impact on battery design and integration into the bodywork
  • Solutions for new requirements concerning production and manufacturing technology
