Already for decades the Automotive Industry is one of the most important markets for GL Plastics. To play a role in this high demanding industry, one needs to be certified according to the IATF 16949 standard (previously known as ISO/TS-16949 standard).
One of the distinctive aspects of the IATF 16949 standard is the strive for Zero Defects, Continuous Improvement and Waste Reduction. As a certified company in the Automotive Industry we supply high quality plastics injection moulded parts to some of the largest Tier One Suppliers in the Automotive industry. Through these global acting suppliers our products end up in virtually all major car brands in the world.
One of our competences that we apply for the Automotive Industry is Insert Moulding, in which we insert metal parts, magnets or even sensors into the tool and overmould these with all sorts of plastic. Due to the fact that this process is fully automated and each product is thoroughly examined with a Camera Vision Control to check whether it meets the specifications, potential defect at the customer’s side is ruled out.
Some of the applications (products) are:
- Wheel Speed Sensor (ABS Sensors)
- Chassis Position Sensor
