Through our precision components made of high performance plastics we support mobility providers in the development of lightweight construction and emission reduction. Replacing aluminium, zinc or die cast metals with alternative technical, sustainable high performance thermoplastics contributes to weight reduction in the automotive world, which ultimately goes hand in hand with an increase in efficiency.
The substitution of metal with plastic also results in a decisive advantage in the engineering process for our customers: due to considerably better material properties and, at the same time, significantly lower system costs, high-performance plastics such as PPS are becoming a fundamental component of new assembly concepts in the automotive and electrical sectors, as well as for pumps and engines.
Advanced performance polymers achieve extremely high solidity and stiffness. The higher level of functional integration can be seen, among other things, in the direct injection of threads and the use of mould sliders. In addition to this, an improved electrical conductivity can be achieved. Ultimately, in comparison to die casting, it is possible to dispense with mechanical finishing steps and external surface treatments.
