  • Publication number: 20210094123
    Abstract: A process for welding a conductor onto a workpiece includes providing the conductor including a first metal, providing the workpiece including a second metal, removing an insulation of the conductor over a predetermined length, and forming a bead in a stripped region of the conductor. The conductor is held down on the workpiece to produce a mechanical contact in a welding region between the conductor and the workpiece. The welding region is arranged in a region of the bead. The conductor is laser welded to the workpiece in the welding region.

  • Publication number: 20200406843
    Abstract: A carrier structure for electrically insulating a first electrically conductive part and a second electrically conductive part includes a base body formed of an electrically insulating material and an electrically insulating spacer embedded in the base body in at least part of a separation region between the first electrically conductive part and the second electrically conductive part. The base body has a first holding structure holding the first electrically conductive part and a second holding structure holding the second electrically conductive part. The electrically insulating spacer has an intumescent material and/or a high temperature-resistant filler.
