MCi (a Flex company) showcased its solutions on the Flex stand at IZB in Wolfsburg (16-18 October). Among the exhibits was an innovative power-folding solution for camera wings (CMS). Supporting the staggering trend for automotive safety and 0-emission, MCi developed a Camera Fold Actuator for CMS applications.
The pressure to create more fuel-efficient vehicles is mounting thanks to a mixture of government regulations and environmentally conscious consumers. One automaker wanted to improve its fuel efficiency by exploring an emerging trend in vehicle design — active grille shutters.
MCi launched production of its newly developed 280 Series powerfold actuator. Mirrors of pickup trucks and SUV’s must withstand higher forces than standard passenger cars. The new MCi 280 Powerfold was specially designed for this application.
MCi has set environmental sustainability goals to reduce its CO2 emission footprint. Key initiatives range from product design and production processes to transport and travel. One of the key measures is to reduce the weight and dimensions of our actuators. MCi leads the way with products featuring the lowest weight in their class.
