Automotive Vehicle Manufacturing

Consumers have very high expectations for their new vehicles. While it is still about transportation, cars today are much more than that. A vehicle reflects the lifestyle of its owner which has led to an incredible diversity of products and options offered by car manufacturers.

On one side it’s about visual exterior and interior design, on the other side drivers also expect a maximum of safety and high level of comfort of their cars like driver and passenger infotainment and assistance systems – “connected car” is the keyword for the future.

Increased consumer requirements for new features and options paired with governmental regulations to achieve a higher sustainability regarding fuel consumption as well as manufacturing resources continue to challenge the automotive industry – especially the manufactures need to archive these goals with fewer resources, smaller budgets and tighter schedules.

Bonding and sealing applications have already replaced many traditional joining processes since all the benefits of adhesives and sealants speak for themselves:

Adhesives and sealants need to be very accurately processed and precisely applied in order to ensure an optimum bond and sealing.

Ever increasing demand for higher productivity and quality require reliable processing equipment and an appropriate quality control.
