The FPC flexible circuit board is a highly reliable and excellent flexible printed circuit board made of polyimide or polyester film. Compared with traditional wire harnesses, FPC has many advantages such as high integration, automated assembly, assembly accuracy, ultra-thin thickness, super softness and light weight. The advantages in safety, battery pack weight reduction, process flexibility, and automated production are significant. Based on the huge advantages of FPC flexible circuit boards in reducing the cost of new energy vehicle batteries, this year’s FPC application in the field of power batteries will be even faster.
Driven by the surge in sales of new energy vehicles, domestic battery shipments have also steadily increased. Although battery shipments and sales have generally increased, net profit has been unsatisfactory. According to Kabor Technology, in November 2018, the installed capacity of power batteries for new energy vehicles in China was about 8.91 GWh, an increase of 50.22% from the previous month and an increase of 28.53% from the same period of last year. Although the installed capacity of power batteries in January-November was slightly fluctuating, the overall The upward trend increased by an average of 25.48% on a month-on-month basis, and the total installed capacity was about 43.53GWh. However, in the performance of net profit, it fell into a strange circle of incremental growth.
In the context of subsidies and battery prices, battery companies have accelerated the feasibility of replacing traditional wire harnesses with FPC flexible circuit boards in order to reduce costs. In particular, FPC flexible circuit boards can be modularized and automated. In order to greatly increase the production efficiency, the production cost can be greatly reduced through large-scale production, and the cost of key components can be reduced by several times. As a domestic FPC flexible circuit board supplier, Kabor Technology has long been in the field of new energy vehicles.
It can be said that FPC flexible circuit board meets the demand of high energy density and low cost of domestic power battery. By 2020, the subsidy of new energy vehicles will be withdrawn from the historical stage. At that time, the cost pressure of power battery companies will only be reduced, FPC The cost reduction effect of flexible circuit boards will be more prominent, and the process of replacing traditional wire harnesses by FPC flexible circuit boards will be significantly accelerated, and a greater role will be achieved in the field of power batteries.
