As your automotive supplier, we are “Driven by Imagination”
We have decades of experience as a component and development partner to the automotive industry. In collaboration with our global customers, we deliver carbon products for electrical, mechanical and thermal applications to ensure driving comfort, driving safety and efficient engine management. Our sintered components and metal powder-injection molded products for the drivetrain, vehicle interior and body all impress in their specific applications. In addition, our portfolio also includes products for soft magnetic, high-strength and high-temperature applications, as well as products made of hybrid materials. No matter what your idea is – we stand ready to help you develop it.
The market places high demands on automotive suppliers
Our customers’ expectations for us as an automotive supplier are clear: components need to be made smaller and lighter, with the lowest possible tolerances, while delivering higher performance. In addition, the requirements for suppliers in terms of sustainable and energy-efficient production based on certifiable processes are increasing. All of these considerations are why our customers choose us as their supplier: First, because we can handle technical challenges, and second, because our financial stability forms the basis for long-term trust.
Our carbon solutions lead the industry
We are the global leader among automotive suppliers in this segment, supplying several hundred million carbon brushes annually for use in electric motors for starters, fans, fuel pumps, window lifts and seat adjusters. We also develop other carbon products such as graphite parts for vacuum pumps, bearings for exhaust systems, graphite injection molded parts for coolant pumps and high-strength composite materials (FRP/CFRP) for reinforcement sleeves.
Expertise in sintering, metal powder-injection molding and thermal management
Thanks to our extensive expertise, we can work with you to launch pioneering automotive solutions. Our sintered components and metal powder-injection molded parts (MIM) are used in every area of the drivetrain, such as in turbochargers, the exhaust system and valve drive, as well as in camshafts and pumps in many different applications. We also equip comfort and passenger safety systems with our reliably high quality parts. Inside the vehicle, our components are used in steering wheels, seat and sunroof adjusters, while they play key functions in the vehicle body/chassis on side mirrors, in the electric parking brake and in the electric tailgate.
New material developments also optimize thermal management for components adjacent to the combustion engine, as well as for power electronics. We develop products made of aluminium graphite or latent heat carbon for these applications.
