PCS for vehicle lighting
When lighting fails to comply with legal requirements a roadside vehicle check can result in a hefty fine. Consequently, regular inspections are advisable – and badly needed as the annual light test conducted by ZDK, the central association of German car dealerships and garages, has shown. The voluntary inspections conducted by ZDK in Germany this fall revealed that about one in four passenger cars was on the road with a defective lighting system – on three percent of the vehicles inspected a total failure of at least one headlight was detected.
Pressure compensation for stable lighting intensityPressure compensation seals are first-choice solutions for counteracting total failure or significant loss of lighting intensity. The membrane regulates venting and moisture exchange in a headlight while protecting it against external effects that could impair its full functionality. For effective protection of all vehicle lighting elements against moisture, dirt, and dust with pressure compensation seals, Schreiner ProTech offers comprehensive solutions for all commonly used vehicle lighting systems, leveraging its long-standing expertise in adhesive processing and membrane technology in every stage of the manufacturing process: from design calculations for electronic housings, preparation for surface treatment, total solutions for initial pre-production assembly to system integration in assembly lines.
Weight and space-savingThe portfolio includes smallest self-adhesive membrane solutions as well as lightweight design options. Another benefit of the Schreiner membrane: The proprietary venting solutions save weight and space compared to components using conventional threaded or snap-fit injection-moulded connections. Validated processes and inspections/testing according to IATF 16949 as well as customised assembly/packaging units complement the portfolio.
Whether for adaptive lighting, laser light, or Matrix LED – the demand for reliable vehicle lighting venting systems keeps growing. Schreiner ProTech sets a shining example and with its membrane solutions ensures that drivers won’t find themselves standing in the dark.www.schreiner-group.com
