The constant evolution of technology applied to the automotive industry opens up multiple windows to showcase what their companies manufacture to the world. In this area we can make a special mention of their industry fairs. In this article, CLR wants to introduce you to some flagship automotive components fairs. Don’t miss them!
The latest edition of the IZB Fair has been a resounding success, with 838 exhibitors from 34 countries and over 50,000 visitors. With this registered data, the 10th edition of the International Suppliers Fair has become the most important event in the continent for suppliers of the automotive industry.
These devices transform hydraulic, pneumatic or electric energy into the activation of a process whose purpose is to generate and effect or action in an automated process. Their application is widespread in the automotive industry, but do you know how they are applied to the various pressure-based systems in vehicles?

Innovations on fields such as vehicle comfort and safety are of significant importance to OEM and Tier 1 manufacturers. To a greater or lesser extent, brands include among their priority objectives to produce a better driving experience. In this regard, one components that are directly related to safety and comfort in a vehicle are the car seats, which has increasingly evolved and applied small technological improvements that are summed up in this article. What actuator systems do advanced seats include?
In their race for differentiation and competitiveness, automotive brands have put their focus on two mechanical aspects: efficiency and emission control. Most of their R&D is targeted at reducing consumption and offering more Environmentally-friendly vehicles. In this matter, the emergence of electronic control systems has brought a revolution on every level, and both Tier 1 and Tier 2 manufacturers compete with each other to offer end users the most innovative electronic fuel injection systems. In this article, we go over the way in which these devices work and the role actuators play in new electronic fuel injection systems.
Automation has increasingly took hold of various sectors, and the automotive industry has always been a technological benchmark. During the last few years, precision, comfort and safety are the target of the most important innovations in the automotive sector, in an attempt to respond to users’ higher demands. In this increasing process of automation, technologies such as sensors and actuators take the centre stage, indispensable for a vehicle’s safety. Let’s see what sensors and actuators are, exactly, and what the most common types in use are.
The sunroof includes one of the motion mechanisms that we find in vehicle bodies. The design and manufacturing of their electric actuators enable us to offer a precise motion to open and close these systems, which are being increasingly added to more and more models.
Due to its sophistication, agility and precision, the automotive industry is considered to be an “industry of knowledge”. There is a true halo of innovation surrounding it, being one of the most dynamic industries, especially in regards to vehicle electromechanics.
