New trends in body development
In automotive engineering many new trends are influencing the development of the body and exterior: Autonomous driving, e-mobility, new kinds of lighting functions as well as sophisticated vehicle designs offer a variety of new design possibilities for automobile lighting systems. The body is being re-engineered for the new electric drive systems. New combinations of materials and production and joining processes open up even more potential.
At Bertrandt, body and exterior are among our core competencies. Development services include all process steps from pre-development, calculations and engineering, simulation, facilities for testing and trials, right to production planning and assistance for start-up of series production. With our 40 years of experience we have the in-depth know-how for the different domains and we understand the process requirements of the OEMs. When changes are made to individual component parts, we keep a sharp eye on the ramifications for overall development.
