Saint-Gobain continues to make progress in winning over Automotive manufacturers with their Making small parts. Making a big difference." brand promise. Saint-Gobain's most recent partnership in providing solutions is with the Chrysler Pacifica -- the most innovative minivan in its class with a brand new vehicle architecture, striking good looks and exceptional functionality.
The result in working in collaboration with Chrysler and their suppliers on the Pacifica is that Saint-Gobain were able to contribute to 78 application areas within the vehicle's chassis, interior and exterior, specifically including the body's hardware, pedal systems and first, second and third row seating systems.
NORGLIDE® Bearings were selected for this project because of the multiple benefits offered through the product's Smart Design in offering lighter materials to keep weight down, Perfect Fit to allow optimisation of assembly, Noise Free indicating self-lubricating bearings to minimise noise and provide smoother performance, and Long Life for excellent wear, maintenance free and corrosion resistance.
Every NORGLIDE® Bearing is customised to create a high performance solution, tailored to the individual application. NORGLIDE Bearings are metal-reinforced and self-lubricating, with a layer of low friction pure PTFE material compounds. The experience in working with Chrysler on the Pacifica -- in providing a well-known and respected automotive manufacturer with leading edge technology solutions -- is so exciting and rewarding.
