Today’s cars are already packed with sensors and cameras; a trend that will increase with the advent of driverless cars. High-quality assembly and traceability are becoming key factors in reliable data collection and, ultimately, vehicle safety. Our proprietary TechBond™PUR adhesive and Pick & Process technique bring secure bonded assembly solutions for automotive glass.
Bonded sensors and camera brackets
Plastic or painted-metal rain sensors and camera brackets an be bonded pre- or post-autoclave, which allows more freedom on the assembly line enabling bonding at a satellite facility, lowering logistics costs, and ensuring just in time delivery. The adhesive overflow is controlled, resulting in a clean, repeatable, and reliable process. Moreover the precise dosing and fast curing allow precise positioning.
Bonded mirror mount base
Bonding can be done pre- or post-autoclave, which allows more freedom on the assembly line enabling bonding at a satellite facility, lowering logistics costs, and ensuring just in time delivery.
ARaymond provides a range of assembly solutions for all opening glazing in a car. According to your design and glass type we can provide clipped or bonded assembly solutions.
Side glass lifting systems
ARaymond can provide reliable, efficient, easy-to-assemble fastening solutions for side window opening systems.
Bonded holders (1)
Ideal for when there is a single one-sided fastener to bond or when bonding onto laminated glass . Our fast curing adhesive eliminates curing stock for just-in-time delivery and production. This bonded solutions can be used on the edge of the glass, allowing reduced glass dimensions and lighter weight. No holes on glass generate less vibration and better water-tightness.
Side window fastener (2)
This fastener is used to fasten side windows without any force on the window lift pin slider. Easy to assemble, its clips into pin slider with minimal force. It automatically aligns with the edge of the window and tape ensure anti-rotation. No special tools are required to disassemble.
Window channel (3)
The geometry of the window channel designed by our engineering team ensures that rubber cannot move during the repeated up and down movements of the glass. The metal screws guide the channel into the right panel holes before fastening, making the work on our customer’s assembly line easier and more efficient.
Hinges and strikers for tilting side glass
ARaymond™ metal hinges and strikers are bonded onto glass, replacing the holes generally required to fasten tilting side glass It enhances aesthetics and eliminates water leakage and noise caused by holes in glass.
Opening backlight systems
ARaymond provides a complete solution for opening backlights that combines bonded ball studs and a bonded striker to support opening and buffer closing.
Together, the bonded ball studs and striker maintain the appearance of the backlight as the designer intended. The specially-engineered part, when used with our high-performance adhesive, can withstand constant stress on the part. No holes in glass for reduced vibration and water leakage.
Metal wiper plates can either be directly bonded or bonded through studs on the backlight. An anti-rotation pin is also bonded to prevent the motor from rotating during wiper operation.
Both direct bonding and bonding through studs eliminate holes for less vibration and increased water-tightness. They are invisible for enhanced aesthetics. The precise dosing and our fast-curing adhesive optimize clips positioning .
The wiper plate is often a multifunctional part that holds the wiper motor and includes the backlight closing striker. Our high-performance adhesive can withstand the stress placed on multifunctional wiper plates.
Trim and spoilers are crucial to a car’s design. ARaymond™ bonding solutions are invisible, allowing new designs and enhanced aesthetics. Plus, our compact fasteners ensure more cost-efficient packaging and logistics.
Bonded trim fastener for side glass
ARaymond’s compact fastener and unique bonding process offer high performance on small bonded surfaces, providing an invisible fastening system that preserves the aesthetics of the glass.
Spoiler bonded studs for backlights
Two bonded metal studs to fasten the spoiler on the backlight. Bonding eliminates the need to drill holes near the glass edge, which weakens the glass. It generates less vibration and better water-tightness. The adhesive joint can withstand exposure to outdoor conditions.
Bonded locator pins hold the glass in position during installation. They can be used on windshield, sun roof, quarterlight, and backlight and are available in metal or plastic.
ARaymond’s unique bonding process offers high performance on small bonded surfaces and can support heavy glass like a large sunroof. It also optimizes clip positioning with precise dosing of our fast-curing adhesive.
ARaymond provides a range of assembly solutions for all opening glazing in a car. According to your design and glass type we can provide clipped and bonded assembly solutions.
Bonded curtain holder on sun roof (1)
This ARaymond™ fastener was designed to be adjustable and compensate for the gap between the curved glass and the curtains motor, which must be mounted horizontally. On-line assembly and our fast-curing adhesive mean that the part can be adjusted and production can continue immediately after bonding.
Third brake lamp studs bonded on backlight (2)
Bonding eliminates the need to drill holes near the glass edge, which weakens the glass. It also generates less vibration and better water-tightness.
Anti-burglar bonded clip for fixed side glass (3)
This metal anti-burglar clip secures the side glass that could otherwise be removed simply by cutting through the joint. The second part of the clip is fastened to the car body.
ARaymond’s compact clip and unique bonding process offer high performance on small bonded surfaces, providing an invisible fastening system that preserves the aesthetics of the glass.
80% of vehicles will be equipped with plastic megabrackets by 2020
Megabrackets have complex geometries and come in a wide range of models, two factors that create logistics and bonding challenges. Our fast-curing adhesive and simple process enable in-sequence bonding as close as possible to OEM assembly lines, reducing logistics-related costs. Let ARaymond engineer a complete solution for you. We can develop a megabracket, high-performance adhesive, and bonding process to meet your needs!
