Conferences&Exhibitions

Electric Vehicle Manufacturing Event Calendar 2022

2022 is an exciting year for WeAutomotive Group as our Annual Conferences & Exhibitions return to physical, face-to-face! And… due to the incredible success and overwhelming appetite for the ‘TechTalk Webinar Series‘, our digital engagements – we will continue to host these unique, live, content-driven topic-specific weeks of individual webinars throughout 2022.

In 2020/2021 we hosted over 400 automotive technical-webinars covering a multitude of BEV industry challenges; led by over 1000 industry expert speakers, and viewed in total around the world 378,000 times by automakers, Tier 1’s and automotive suppliers! That is some accomplishment.

We have been thrilled to play such an important part in keeping the industry connected during such challenging and unchartered times – and look forward to combining all that we have learnt over the past two years, with our physical conferences and events –  to provide BEVs leading platforms and engagements, for knowledge, innovation and networking.

We are really looking forward to seeing you at the conferences and exhibitions in 2022,  as well as continuing to deliver you high quality, solution orientated content to your desks and homes.

If your company is interested in Exhibiting, Sponsoring or Presenting during one, or across a series of our 2022 activities please reach out to us.

Thermal Conductive Adhesives For Next Generation Cell-to-Pack Configurations

Dr. Tim Fornes, Technology Fellow, Advanced Technology, Parker LORD

Susan Donaldson, Scientist I in the Advanced Technology Department, Parker LORD

Speaker Bios | Company Profile

A new class of thermally conductive adhesives have been developed for directly bonding prismatic battery cells to cooling plates. This lightweight technology not only affords higher energy density in EVs, but greatly reduces manufacturing cost and complexity.
Key Takeaways:
  • One route to achieving these goals is the elimination of the housings of battery modules and bonding individual cells directly to the cooling plate. This simplification eliminates numerous steps, parts, and materials. We’ll discuss the shift towards this design and how it benefits manufacturers when using thermal management materials
  • New adhesive technology is needed to meet more demanding performance requirements. This talk will review new developments in thermally conductive adhesives that enable direct bonding of prismatic cells to aluminum cooling plates.
  • Comparisons between the new cell-to-pack design and traditional battery pack configurations will be discussed.
