Automotive Air Filter Gauge Assembly
Housing/body - Polypropylene
Lens - Polycarbonate
Diaphragm - Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)
Liner/grommet - Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE)
Automotive air filter gauge features a liquid silicone rubber diaphragm indicating when it's time to change the filter. Correct material selection, molding and assembly of the four components was important to meet the high quality automotive requirements.
Consolidated sources for all four components including final assembly at Minnesota Rubber and Plastics. This resolved diaphragm function and assembly fit issues, reduced tool cycle requirements by half and accelerated time to market.
