Application

Safety component built in to the front seats of convertibles. This locking mechanism keeps the headrests from extending unless the car rolls over. If the car rolls over, the rollover bracket is activated when this safety mechanism turns away.

Advantages

  • No machining required
  • Complex product design
  • Product is delivered ‘ready for use’
  • Width of spanner: hexagon is cast along with the rest

Advantage of the CIREX casting process

Despite the complex form, the design is well-suited to mass production. No machining is required. Even the precise tolerance of the width of spanner (hexagonal) can be cast using the ‘lost wax’-casting method.
