Designed for the ever-changing automotive industry, these filters use multi-layer filter media, also known as "fleece," made from melt-blown superfine fibers with a compressed cellulose substrate layer, a filter system already used by Mercedez-Benz as the world's first fleece oil filter, and as a fleece air filter in the Audi A8. The filter can improve current filtration standards from 85-99 percent to 95-99.9 percent, with ultra-small particles measuring between three and five microns.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
