The main activities carried out at the Competence Centre in Reutlingen include the development, design and mass production of tooling. Modern processing centres with machine tools, sanding machines and milling machines support efficient construction. High-accuracy measurement and inspection systems guarantee precise tolerances and ensure high levels of quality in mass production.
The technological centre supplies motor vehicle lighting production centres throughout the world, and it is able to develop processes and instruments for
The geometry of high-quality components is designed with the constant cooperation and communication with the carmakers. To make the tooling, Automotive Lighting uses computer programmes such as :
During the processing, high-precision optic surfaces are carefully incorporated in the tooling. Tests are carried out with injection machines by highly qualified personnel using special parameters that can be adjusted thanks to the measuring instrument.
Based on the validation of equipment, processes and parts, the type-approved tooling is issued to the pertinent production facilities for mass production in the entire worldwide production network of Automotive Lightning.
