The sunroof frame forms the connection between the car body and the moving glass, and typically integrated additional functionality such as the mountings of a motor, a sliding glass mechanism, and a sunblind system. In close collaboration with material supplier Polyscope , we have carried out a project for CIE Automotive to assess the potential of multiple materials and technologies in order to improve current sunroof frame designs in terms of weight and integral costs.
Code commits to sustainable solutions in product development. Next to the impact of lightweight on the energy consumption of cars, the choice of a mono polymer solution leading into excellent recyclability of the sunroof frame at the end of its life. Both aspects are important steps for a brighter future.Stef Bastin, Manager Engineering at Code Product Solutions
