TIELT, BELGIUM – June, 2007 – True to its vision of delivering a combination of product development, production and assembly from a single source, Quadrant Creative Moulding & Systems (Quadrant CMS) in Tielt, Belgium, has partnered German vacuum cleaner manufacturer Vorwerk in the design and manufacture of a new polymer-based vacuum hose module. The part, included on Vorwerk’s new “Tiger” vacuum cleaner which was launched globally in early 2007, delivers improvements in terms of functionality, handling and aesthetics.
TIELT, BELGIUM – June, 2007 – Quadrant Creative Moulding & Systems (Quadrant CMS) of Tielt, Belgium, working in close co-operation with Tier-1 automotive supplier Autoliv, has developed a new, polyamide passenger airbag housing for use in vehicles based on the Volkswagen Golf platform. The housing, moulded from impact-modified polyamide 6 with 40 percent glass-fibre reinforcement, is just under half the weight of the original metal counterpart and provides considerable cost-of-manufacture savings. The part is being installed in vehicles such as the VW Golf, Audi A3, Seat Leon and Skoda Fabia since early 2007.
TIELT, BELGIUM – July 2007 – Quadrant Creative Moulding & Systems (Quadrant CMS) has developed and patented a new technology to bond a thin strip of PTFE with a thermoplastic carrier in a single step overmoulding process. The resulting product has a top surface which exhibits the excellent low-friction and chemical resistance properties of the fluoropolymer, yet is as mechanically strong as the thermoplastic carrier beneath it. Moreover, it provides the typical “design for assembly” freedom of an injection-molded part.
TIELT, BELGIUM – July 2007 – Quadrant Creative Moulding & Systems (Quadrant CMS) is about to double the turnover at the Hungarian facility compared to 2006 and has announced plans to further increase the production capacity significantly of its purpose-built injection-moulding facility in Szigetszentmiklos, south of Budapest, by the end of 2007. Production at the plant has increased significantly in recent months, principally as a result of Quadrant CMS’ success in the region. Amongst Quadrant CMS’s expansion plans are the addition of Krauss-Maffei and Engel injection moulding machines, ranging from 25 to 400 tons, and the employment of more workers at the site in line with the additional activity.
