The 11th International Seminar & Conference on Advances in Resistance Welding and Mechanical Joining 第十一届先进电阻焊及机械连接技术国际会议

Background/ 背景:

The rapid development of electric vehicles (EVs) is reshaping the automotive industry. The transition to E-mobility poses new challenges for the welding and joining of battery cells, modules and packs, as well as electric motors and power electronics. The need for reducing CO2 emissions and improving vehicle performance has promoted the application of lightweight materials such as higher-strength steels, aluminum alloys, die-cast aluminum, and dissimilar materials.


These trends require new developments and production of more advanced materials with higher strength-to-weight ratios, and also have complicated the welding and joining processes requiring more intelligent welding process optimizations and sophisticated weld quality assurance.


To keep up to date with technology advancements in the field of resistance welding and mechanical joining, and to provide an opportunity for industrialists and welding specialists to share their expertise, experiences and outlooks at an international level, a series of biennial international seminars has been organized by SWANTEC since 2000 in collaborations with various co-organizing partners alternatively in Europe, North America and Asia. The 11th seminar will be held in 2024 in Shanghai, China.
