Advancement Through Technology

Developing the necessary jointing technology for the environment-friendly and safe refrigerant CO2 and bringing it to the series production stage is now paying off. The first vehicles with CO2 air-conditioning systems have gone into operation successfully, and the technology is on the brink of a breakthrough into the mass market. As the automakers’ development partner, we made an important contribution to this from the very outset.

Advancement through new technologies – our customers are also benefiting from this in other areas. For instance, we are currently the only manufacturer capable of supplying air-conditioning lines with laser-welded connectors and valves. That is a win not just for the environment, but also for the quality and cleanliness of the lines.

Furthermore, the new CAE design tool is now helping us make our air-conditioning lines even tougher and achieve even more precise advance analyses of the performance of components and assemblies.

Happy reading!
