Automotive: manufacturers and suppliers approve the SONIQTWIST® technology from Telsonic
OEM approval for SONIQTWIST®
The torsional ultrasonics welding process SONIQTWIST®, developed by Swiss Telsonic AG, has now been approved by further OEMs and 1st tier suppliers from the automotive industry. After internal checks with comprehensive and practically-oriented tests, one major German automotive manufacturer and two key suppliers have now approved this revolutionary process. SONIQTWIST® will also shortly go into series production as a process for the fastening of sensor brackets with a third supplier.
"The tests for the results of our torsional ultrasonics welding process SONIQTWIST® have been carried out with OEM-specific precision and thoroughness," explained Dirk Bücker from the German subsidiary of Telsonic AG in Erlangen. These include test drives in different climate zones, in desert areas and on ice. Only in this way was it possible to ensure that the brackets for the sensors of automobile parking assistance systems are also firmly fixed to the bumpers. The test results convinced the OEM to the extent that they have now approved the process for all the group brands. Two 1st tier suppliers have reached the same conclusion, and the process is on the brink of approval at a third.
