Concept development of a steel battery housing

Development of a lightweight structural concept for a steel battery housing

The aim of the project is to design a steel battery housing with particular attention to joinability and corrosion protection. The increased use of steel poses far-reaching challenges in terms of design, joining technology and corrosion protection. These will be specifically researched in this project. In each case, processes will be investigated which enable the economical and sustainable production of battery housings in steel construction for both smaller and larger quantities.
