QPS

  • Meeting directives, such as ELV REACh and RoHS continues to be essential requirements. QPS delivers on all of these needs. QPS complies with the conditions set forth in the ISO 9001: 2015.

     

    QPS helps automotive engineers to specify the right products in a sustainable world. The steady evolution of the program has enabled many global OEM’s to specify ever-higher performance standards and represents:

    • Approved applicators: Applying these products to a common audited standard ensures the same coating performance throughout the applicator base.
    • High performance: Exceeding the high demands for corrosion resistance and exceptionally consistent torque and tension characteristics.
    • Global consistency: Wherever ZinKlad, DecoKlad or XMAPP standards are applied, applicators know they are using the same high-performance products.

    What do we do?

    We supply and develop QPS standards that meet and exceed OEM specifications. We validate applicators processes by conducting audits, carrying out inspections and testing the production output to make sure they meet pre-defined QPS standards and agreed technical requirements.

    We monitor and report results on a global scale to be able to service and continuously improve performance. 

    Why do we do what we do?

    We believe that we are able to assure a global consistent performance at a local level meeting the global OEM requirements with a select number of world class applicators.

    How do we do what we do?

    ESI Automotive has developed a unique Quality Performance System called QPS that tackles the challenges for high-performance automotive coatings. OEM’s can be confident that the same coatings and consistent performance are available worldwide.

Touchscreen

Touch displays

Touch screen displays need to be readable in a variety of light conditions and hard-wearing. To allow the driver to keep their focus on the road, touch screens also need safety features built into the surface such as finger location channels or pips. Hardcoated 3D formable films can meet these requirements, providing design freedom whilst enabling seamless, stylish, and safe design.

Displays

Whether the application is a lens over an analog instrument cluster or a digital display which doesn’t require touch capability, cover lens applications are situated throughout the vehicle. The design of these parts is becoming increasingly complex, moving towards curved edges and 3D shapes. Hardcoated 3D formable film enables sleek, seamless component design allowing buttons to be integrated into surfaces and displays to be blended into other components.

IME smart surfaces

Driven by a need to reduce complexity and weight whilst increasing electronic content, automotive designers are turning to in-mold electronics (IME). The creation of circuitry on film which can be formed and injection molded allows parts to become thinner and lighter whilst incorporating smart features into the surface such as capacitive touch and secret till lit.

introduction

Combining several material technologies, ESI Automotive, enables smart surface manufacturers to create next-generation structures from one single supplier

The automotive industry is changing with several emerging trends such as electric vehicles, autonomous driving, and car sharing. So too is the in-car users’ experience as consumer expectations grow. Car interiors must, therefore, evolve fast to enable the new features required by these trends. Gone are the days of the mechanical cockpit – electronics driven Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) are at the forefront of modern design.

Consumers expect an automotive experience to equal that of the rest of their world - meaning large high-definition displays, touch screens, capacitive touch sensors, and glossy sleek surfaces are amongst the features being sought.

However, increased content in the interior is countered by a desire for reduced assembly complexity, and lighter components and systems. ESI Automotive bring together all their expertise in both automotive films and electronic materials to offer a comprehensive materials stack combined with technical support.
