AOC, Daimler and Menzolit show new roads for collaboration in the automotive value chain6 September 2016
At the VDI conference in Mannheim earlier this year, AOC, Daimler and Menzolit together gave a presentation about their successful improvement of SMC Technology for use in top-range Mercedes passenger cars.
Through a very open collaboration and by sharing detailed process information, the companies were able to minimize production waste and improve quality consistency in a major way. This made it possible to realize a new segment of large Premium Class 1 components (like the deck lid of the Mercedes SL Roadster), and make SMC the technology of choice for many new car series to come.
