Photo Etching

ACE busbars

Whether prototyping or creating busbars for production runs we often want high quality parts and this is where photo etching comes into it’s own. Advanced Chemical Etching take us through the process of photo etching and how this can be used to create high quality aluminium or copper parts. We are concentrating on busbars, but … Read more

Aluminium Busbar

Tesla Model Y 4680 Busbar

Electrical grade aluminum busbar material also known as ec grade aluminum busbar. Compared to copper busbars aluminium offers a weight and cost save, but requires an increase in cross-sectional area of ~62%. Hence aluminium busbars need more volume for packaging. The common grades of aluminum for electrical busbars: 1060 1100 1350 6063 6101 Cross-Sectional Area … Read more

Electrical System of Battery

The electrical design of the battery pack is associated with fundamental electrical elements. These elements are Busbars, Contactors, Fuses, pre-charge resistors, current sensors, HV (High Voltage) and LV (Low Voltage) Connectors, and wiring harnesses. Busbars are electrically conductive materials that maintain current flow from the cells to the external electrical loads. Aluminum and copper are … Read more
