They're for in a car.

8 modules 12s gives about 400 volts, lots of motors / controllers need higher voltages like this.

Half a Tesla 85kWh pack is plenty for a lot of cars, and much lighter than alternatives like Calb cells.

With a spiral groove cutter for aluminum in a router. Path is CNC cut. after cutting and cleaning up I filled the groove with electrical grade silicone caulk.

the bolts are attached with a stud welding machine (capacitor discharge).

Both tasks are quite daunting, and took a couple of weeks to optimize.

I have orders for converting 16 modules, after that I might take orders for more.
