Greiner Assistec has contributed an end cap to the roller mechanism for roller shades in the VW T6 for a automotive supplier. The metal part is overmolded with plastic to give the composite part not only exceptional rigidity and durability, but also to lessen the weight. The overmolding process involves automated insertion of the metal part. The feeder and insertion station was custom-developed and is characterized by a clearly defi ned process, low personnel cost, reduced expenses, low error rate and reproducibility.
