Large order from the automotive industry for Adval Tech(PresseBox) (Niederwangen, )
The Uetendorf plant can utilize its existing stamping presses to manufacture the components for the brackets, and Adval Tech will invest in a new laser welding line for the assembly of the modules. The adoption of this new technology opens up further interesting opportunities for Adval Tech as a global supplier to the automotive industry.
The bracket of a steering column swivel lever is intended to ensure infinitely variable adjustment in terms of both length and height. Special features of the subassembly codesigned by Styner+Bienz are an infinitely adjustable clamping mechanism and a flexible energy absorption system. The newly developed bracket is also impressive for its small number of component parts as a result of skilful functional integration and the modular steering column concept, which enables a single type of steering column to be used for a wide range of vehicles.
