Increasing complexity of automotive components
Automotive technology continues to evolve rapidly.
Electric vehicles have made enormous strides in recent years. Cars with traditional combustion engines are becoming more sophisticated and powerful than ever, too. Keeping pace with all of these technological changes is essential. At forteq, we have extensive in-house expertise to support the development and production of cutting-edge actuator components.
A full range of applications
Modern vehicles have dozens of actuators. These components are used to control numerous activities in the vehicle such as the engine throttle, climate control systems, electrical transmission, electrical steering and braking systems, power windows, seat adjustment and more. Most people aren’t even aware of the actuators in their car until one fails. Ensuring that these parts are functioning properly requires a robust design.
forteq is a leading manufacturer of a wide range of plastic components used in vehicle actuators. We help our customers with the design and production of a wide range of actuator components, and we have expertise with a variety of automotive applications.
In-house expertise to assist with development and manufacturing
Working with highly demanding customers over the past five decades, we have developed extensive in-house expertise in plastic components used in actuators. As a result, we are able to assist our customers with every stage of the actuator development and manufacturing process, from design to final subcomponent assembly. And because we offer all of these services in-house, we help our customers streamline their processes and reduce costs.
We can also support customers with the metal to plastic conversion process. There are many benefits to the use of plastic components in actuators in place of metal. These include:
- Compact design and reduced weight
- Improved fuel/energy economy and reduction of total CO2 footprint.
- Greater torque and durability
- Excellent mechanical performance
- Fatigue resistance
