The share of assistence systems in cars will multiply due to different applications in cars, e.g. city safety, head-up displays, blind spot warning system, lane departure warning.
Central displays in magnesium - Driven by legislation to reduce CO2 and the resultant need to save weight, housing or support systems for navigation systems and instrumentation have become established that are made of magnesium. Besides low weight, benefits also include the ability to produce thin walls - made possible by the hot-chamber die-casting technique - while at the same time optimising electromagnetic screening and heat dissipation. The use of high-purity AZ91HP alloy obviated the need to add corrosion inhibitors.
EMC shield - Screening for lane-change assist system - This corrosion-proof component provides electromagnetic screening between radar aerial and the electronic components of a lane-change assist system.
Display rear panel for split view monitor - This large, thin-walled component provides the housing for a split-view monitor. Perfect evenness avoids any shadow effects on the display.
Display rear panel - freely programmable instrumentation - This magnesium housing is used in the field of automotive instrumentation. Fine markings integrated in the casting process facilitate camera-assisted assembly and ensure exact component alignment.
Tailgate drive for cars and SUVs - Car and SUV tailgates can be opened and closed automatically with an innovate drive unit. The compact drive system unit is accommodated in an housing with cover. These parts are die-cast. The magnesium components are designed to take account of limited package and the extremely high levels of stress they are exposed to. The close tolerances of the bearing seats prevent wear and give the drive unit the length service life demanded.
Mobile data recording - Powder coated magnesium housing for mobile data logger. Impact-resistant, waterproof and dust-tight to protect against ambient conditions. Our work operations: casting, powder coating, integration (bonding) of bluetooth aerial, wi-fi window, lock seal and optical fibre.
