Large order from the automotive industry for Adval Tech

(PresseBox) (Niederwangen, ) The Adval Tech Group is continuing to consolidate its leading global position as a component supplier in the field of motor vehicle steering systems. Adval Tech Styner+Bienz is supplying a substantial portion of the steering system for the largest platform ever launched by VW in Europe. The brackets are being manufactured by Styner+Bienz in its Uetendorf plant. Sales revenues for the entire production cycle (2012 through 2018) amount to more than CHF 35 million.

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.
