Wind deflector| ACPS Automotive & Audi

The wind deflector of the Audi R8, which must with-stand high stress at high speeds, is characterized by great rigidity and low weight. Greiner Assistec was also able to provide valuable input into the intensive developmental collaboration between the German automobile supplier ACPS Automotive and Audi.

The wind deflector is produced in an overmolding process. A stainless steel frame is procured, the mesh manually adhered, dried and trimmed – before it is manually inserted into the injection molding machine, overmolded and thereby sealed.  The metal-plastic combination allows the wind  deflector to become very robust, while at the same time reducing the weight of the end product, thanks to the use of plastic.
