Instead of laser, like Indonesia.

Hyundai Motor is planning to use press notching instead of laser in its latest joint battery factory with LG Energy Solution in the US, TheElec has learned.

The factory, operated by the pair’s joint venture HL-GA, will use notching, much like HLI Green Power, Hyundai Motor’s joint venture with LG Energy Solution created prior, which is based in Indonesia

Notching uses blade-shaped molds to make the tabs for the negative and positive terminals. This is called press but if a laser is used instead of molds it is called laser notching.

While the growth of the electric vehicle market is slowing down, battery makers and automakers are more or less keeping their original battery factory construction schedules.

LG Energy Solution’s joint ventures with Honda and Stellantis have finished placing orders for the equipment they will use at their respective factories, sources said. HL-GA is currently placing orders, they said.

HLI Green Power originally opted for laser notching but changed this to press. With HL-GA also going for press, this indicates that the method is preferred and is expected to become the norm for Hyundai Motor’s battery joint ventures.

Equipment makers DE&T, DSK, and Shinjin Mtec offer notching equipment; DE&T mostly supplied laser notching kits in the past but is collaborating with Yujin Technology to offer press notching as well.

Sources said equipment vendors have placed their bids and LG Energy Solution is preferring new suppliers.

HL-GA is planned to have a capacity of 30GWh per year, enough for 300,000 units of EVs.

It will have nine lines and the first equipment orders have been placed for two lines. Notching orders are expected to be valued at tens of billions of wons.

Meanwhile, the stacking equipment supplier has already been named as Top Engineering.
