Production of IntelliSafe body part containing the system’s radar

The agreement focuses on the manufacturing of the IntelliSafe body part in the back of the central rear-mirror that contains the system’s radar. After a successful development, RocTool 3iTech allows a replication of the micro structure of the mold steel for the production of the part.

Technology changes optical properties of the plastic surface

Applied on the inside of the part, the RocTool technology brings significant changes to the optical properties of the plastic surface, preventing the rising sun lights that enters inside the part to blind the radar. As of today no other technology is able to obtain such optical properties on a one-shot manufacturing without additional operations (e.g. painting).
