Traditional customer, new technology

VTAE 01VIDEOTON Automotive Electronics Kft. – the Videoton company specialised in the production of automotive electronic and electro-mechanic parts – won more new businesses at its strategic partner, Valeo France. 
One of these projects is already in the mass production phase: LED electronics built in rear lamps based on flexible PCB, which is a technical novelty. The related challenges were successfully solved by the Videoton engineering team during NPI. The insertion of flexible PCBs requires special trays compared to the traditional (rigid) PCBs on the SMT (surface mount) lines.
The new technology requires new competencies and needs special attention because the product is much more sensitive than generally.
Another project is the production of windscreen-viper engine-controller electronics which is a complete module assembled in a plastic housing. The product is produced in millions, in three different types and is to be built into various passenger cars. One kind is already in mass production, the others are in the trial run phase. 
The production of a steering wheel switching sensor family is in the sample production phase. Mass production (in hundreds of thousands a year) is expected to start in autumn of 2012.
These new businesses prove that Videoton plays a more and more determinant role in the automotive electronic market and provides a competitive service to its customers at a higher and higher competency basis.
