The sunroof frame forms the connection between the car body and the moving glass and typically integrated additional functionalities 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. The choice for a mono polymer solution means excellent recyclability of the sunroof frame at the end of its life. Lightweight design and the use of re-usable materials lead to a brighter future.Hendrik Schütte, Simulation Engineer at Code Product Solutions
