Pleasant to touch, robust & inexpensive: 2C Handwheel
Müller-Technik reconciles opposites. A handwheel on a car seat must be able to withstand a lot. At the same time, it should feel good in the hand of the driver. It must be pleasant to touch. And, finally, it must not cost too much.
Our solution: 2C handwheels. Previously, an automaker had to assemble three injection molding parts – the abrasive ring, handwheel and ring – in a laborintensive process while the new component can be completed in one work step. Both components are molded and joined in one injection molding machine, which saves time and money.
The ring consists of a softer more pleasant material than the handwheel whose primary purpose is to withstand strong forces. Incidentally, 2 or 3-component parts have a significantly longer service life than products assembled from multiple components.
Advantages of multiple components
- Optimal haptics
- Inexpensive due to fewer components
- Assembly not necessary
- Secure manufacturing process
- No stickiness in heat
- Resilient surface
