The automotive industry uses a variety of cost intensive materials (e.g. metals, polymers, glasses, electronic components). The quality of individual parts as well as the adjustment of the different components with respect to each other poses a technological challenge that can only be met effectively with the proper analytical support. Typical issues are:

  • Clarification of processing issues in coatings
  • Characterisation of glasses
  • Tribological studies
  • Analysis of lubricants
  • Servo motor failure
  • Adhesive problems in adhesive joints
  • Analysis of lamps
  • Optimisation of measuring sensors
  • Cause of corrosion
  • Composition of polymers
  • ...
