NEVS, a Chinese manufacturer of electric vehicles, has now placed an order with BOGE for chassis suspension components in China. The front and rear top mount, control arm bushing, trailing arm bushing, and toe link bush come from BOGE: The parts were developed and will be produced at BOGE's Qingpu location. BOGE Elastmetall Shanghai Co. Ltd. has been located in Qingpu for over ten years with sales, development, prototype production, simulation, materials engineering and production. The product portfolio includes rubber-metal components (noise and vibration damping) for chassis and powertrain as well as plastic components and modules for the global automotive industry.

Brake pedal 40-55 percent lighter than steel
Innovative lightweight technology enables volume production, is affordable and hybrid. That’s why the automotive supplier BOGE Rubber & Plastics Group has developed an additive manufacturing process for endless fiber materials. It is applied to brake pedals, a safety critical component – 40-55 percent lighter than steel, fully automated and quality controlled.
Core of the process is the local adaption of fiber architectures by printing unidirectional reinforcements (UD-Tapes) to organo-sheets. In a second step these tailored blanks are then draped and consolidated in a way, that fully welds the tapes to the organo-sheets. This makes mechanical properties of endless fiber-shells programmable. Increased fiber efficiency reduces the amount of equipped endless fiber materials by 30 percent, reducing wall thickness and thus weight and cycle time.
