    Project Details


    The H1perChain (high performance EV supply chain) project has been designed to scale up the UK’s battery pack manufacturing and supply chain industry as a critical part of the automotive sector and the UK Government Industrial Strategy.
    The project will address the need for a step change reduction in battery pack costs by developing the UK component and sub-system supply chain capabilities, establishing robust and high-speed laser welding processes whilst innovating the design and manufacturing solutions for higher volume battery packs.
    This will be underpinned by a novel Industry 4.0 digitalisation strategy that enables reduced lead-times with optimised productivity and overall competitiveness.
