Our customer needed to incorporate a lightweight and efficient system for the safe car lifting necessary for vehicle maintenance.
The challenge for us of OpenAxis was in the creation of an alternative mechanism to the metal jack, which dominates on the global market today, maintaining the dimensional and functional features and ensuring the reliability of the product. In replacement of the standard mechanism, we have therefore designed and implemented a system made of patented technical polymers.
Thanks to our structural and engineering skills and to our competence of the chemical-physical features of raw materials, we have been able to develop a plastic system – made entirely by injection moulding – which guarantees the same performance in terms of functionality and security. A product that, unlike the standard one made of metal, allows to obtain an important weight reduction.
- The system which we have developed ensures excellent performance from the safety point of view, an essential requirement for carrying out normal vehicle maintenance activities.
- Lightweight and functionality
- Using of technical polymers, together with the engineering revision of the mechanism, has allowed us to obtain the lightening of the whole system, maintaining the mechanical efficiency unchanged.
- Completely recyclable, our system reduces the weight in the car, saving fuel consumption and enabling the emissions reduction into the atmosphere, this patented system helps even when it is not directly used.
Weight reduction with the removal of metal elements.
Reduction of consumption.
Reduction of emissions into the atmosphere.
Customer satisfaction with the alternative solution which we have designed.
