Eastern Counties Branch Technical Talk

This free event is organised by our Eastern Counties Branch for our members. Other members and non-members are very welcome to join us.

Overview:-  In this talk, Dr Gandhi will introduce the audience to the two topics:

  • Electric battery joining using ultrasonic and laser welding and
  • Diffusion bonding of micro-channelled polymers      

Joining and recycling are pivotal aspects of electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturing, enabling the creation of functional battery packs and sustainable practices. During this talk, Dr Gandhi will dive deep into the cutting-edge advancements in joining and recycling technologies for EV batteries. He will explore joining methods, conduct trials, and discuss the testing of EV dummy cells.

In the second part of the talk, Dr Gandhi will introduce the diffusion bonding process for manufacturing novel microfluidic devices, primarily targeted at the bio-pharmaceutical industry, to reduce cost, improve quality, increase in process yield and establish clean, safe and sustainable process.
