E|PTS – Production Technologies and Systems for E-Mobility


Increasing power consumption, CO₂ reduction, growing urbanization and mobility combined with progressing automation and digitalization – all of these future megatrends are impossible without efficient production technologies and systems. The electrification of powertrains in all kinds of mobility is considered crucial, as the whole mobility sector is facing difficulties resulting from the substitution of conventional propulsion technologies. Besides advancing ideas on the design of new propulsion technologies, the organization of the manufacturing processes and systems is of utmost importance.
The CIRP sponsored Conference on Production Technologies and Systems for E-Mobility offers an outstanding platform for the exchange of experiences from developers, researchers and potential users.
The focus of the conference is set on the presentation of highly innovative products from various industries as well as manufacturing processes and strategies. Additionally there will be an accompanying industrial exhibition poster presentation and an associated program.


Power Electronics Production

  • Automated processes and machinery for the manufacturing of power electronics
  • New joining technologies, e.g. silver sintering, diffusion soldering, transient liquid phase soldering (TLPS), thick wire bonding
  • New material systems, e.g. Cu instead of Al
  • New durability tests, e.g. active power cycling, H3TRB, HTGB / HTGSP
  • Application of mechatronic integrated devices (MID)

Production Technologies for Power Supply & Transfer

  • Automated processes and machinery for the manufacturing of stationary charging systems
  • Technological developments in automated processes for manufacturing of inductive charging systems or dynamic charging systems
