Automotive excellence with Geartec's polymer expertise
Automotive industry can take advantages from the Geartec experience in polymers processing.
Large batches and series parts can be produced by injection molding, while pieces in small batches or characterized by tight tolerances intended, for example for racing or prototyping, are processed by turning or milling.
The special characteristics of plastic and composite materials, such as low density and excellent tribological properties combined with good chemical, mechanical and thermal resistance can be exploited for the construction of more economical and efficient vehicle components.
Polymers and composites can in fact be used for the production of lightweight and durable components used, for example, in on-board electronics, transmission systems, and fuel management systems.
