Saint-Gobain helps you design Automotive applications that meet Automotive OEM specifications, minimize space requirements and reduce costs.
Automotive engineers can take advantage of NORGLIDE® Bearing technology to deliver lightweight systems. Our custom designed composite bearings can make use of lightweight materials such aluminium, and feature an ultra-thin layer of high performance PTFE lining to deliver high-performing bearings with less weight. Today’s automotive engineer’s must look to make gains in every area of a system – NORGLIDE® Composite Bearings can make large-scale CO2 savings across a manufacturer’s fleet.
By working engineer-to-engineer, we can deliver components that save space and eliminate additional components whilst making performance gains within your applications. For instance, by using our RENCOL® Tolerance Rings within an application, plastic sleeves and spring clips can be eliminated saving space and simplifying assembly.
By using RENCOL® Tolerance Rings to reduce the number of individual components that are required in a system, manufacturers can take advantage of reduced assembly costs. Lightweight gains through lighter systems featuring components with advanced materials address increasingly aggressive CO2 legislation targets and deliver cost savings on fuel for drivers.
