Anodising centres specialises in automotive applications

Anodising centres specialises in automotive applications
Aluminium anodising facility, BCW Treatments opened back in 2015 to provide a full service to companies using the subcontract machining services of BCW Manufacturing Group's machine shops on the same industrial estate as it. Anodising is carried out in a Galvatek automated finishing line supplied by Turbex, which was deemed to be the best all-round package of three alternatives considered. Currently, an average of 2,600 square metres of product per week are finished across more than 240 part lines.

Supply chain efficiency supports rapid growth in automotive industry

Supply chain efficiency supports rapid growth in automotive industry
The main aim for most businesses is growth, but when it occurs rapidly it can place additional stresses on an organisation as it adjusts to new commercial circumstances. Rosti Automotive, a tier 1 supplier to the automotive industry, encountered such a challenge as a large new contract win placed pressure on its existing supply chain. Consequently, Rosti Automotive enlisted Optimas Solutions, a global distributor and service provider of fasteners and c-class components, to simplify and manage its supply chain, allowing Rosti Automotive to place full attention on its core business activities.

Automotive switch enables high operating force

Automotive switch enables high operating force
Japanese electronic components manufacturer ALPS Electric has developed the SKTQ series TACT Switch, which began mass production in December 2017. Today's automobile cabins are quieter than ever, as sounds like the noise of the engine running and the vehicle moving along the road have been reduced due to increasingly airtight chassis and the emergence of hybrid and electric vehicle technologies.

Technique expands industrial use of steel alloys

Technique expands industrial use of steel alloys
The automotive industry’s demand for high-performance alloys known as advanced high-strength (AHS) steels has increased in recent years owing to increasingly tough passenger safety, vehicle performance and fuel economy requirements. Characterised by improved formability and collision resilience compared to conventional steel grades, high-strength steels have been used in critical safety locations in car body structures to absorb energy from impacts.

The question is: reflex over reaction?

The question is: reflex over reaction?
Over the last two years, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS and the semiconductor manufacturer GLOBALFOUNDRIES have worked together in the project 'MARS' to advance the development of highly reliable 22nm FDSOI components. These components should pave the way for 'tactile intelligent systems' made in Dresden. Areas such as autonomous driving and applications in intelligent production will benefit enormously from such wirelessly networked systems capable of communicating with each other in real time.
