High Tech Developments Worthy of Making Automotive Industry News

Posted on July 7, 2019 in Uncategorized

Everyone knows the current state of the economy; it appears in news reels every day. However, it is very common that bad news distracts the public from the good. The motor sector was hit hard in the past few years, but there is plenty of automotive industry news to be very excited about.

Public awareness has been consistently growing about issues such as global warming and man-made greenhouse gases. With this constant global environmental education comes a common urge to help the situation. Choices are being made with the earth’s wellbeing in mind and as such much stock is being put on improved efficiency and reduced emissions when people buy cars.

As indicated by the multiple new models released (and soon to be released), electric vehicle (EV) models have been grabbing a lot of attention. Already doing well in the USA, Japan and parts of Europe, EV designs seem to be the way forward. It fulfils all the green aspirations consumers have for their automobiles. There are a few issues though, namely the large cost of the lithium ion batteries core to most designs, and also the absence of sound EV infrastructure.

The bridge between fossil fuels and pure electric has been around for quite a while: the hybrid car. Since many can’t afford the extra initial capital costs of an EV, a hybrid seems like a suitable compromise. It has similar benefits to electric cars, but at a fraction of the price, and with less performance loss. It is no wonder then that hybrid sales have been so high in recent years – it is the logical choice, and the public know this.

Other imaginative innovations have been popping up. For example, in safety, many new models have radar and sensor technology allowing you better cruise control and collision detection. Things that were already impressive, such as airbags and anti-lock braking, are now being reshaped and improved.

Many cars now come equipped with airbags that take into account details to allow it to operate better, like weight and size. The latest in anti-lock braking applies brakes faster and harder, and controls out of control situations that lead to crashes. A common new feature is tire pressure sensors, letting you know when your tires need to be filled, much the same way as your oil and gas monitors work.

Don’t forget all those little extras that make an automobile that much more desirable. The latest gadgets are pushing the driving experience into the future. One clever little key design allows you to limit the top speed of the car, ensuring speed-hungry teens don’t crash the family vehicle. Another high tech addition is night vision, allowing a clear view of the road when headlights can’t help. Perfecting existing designs, new GPS systems provide constant instructions, as well as updated traffic reports.

Relevance of Extrusion Profiles in Automotive Industry

Posted on July 6, 2019 in Uncategorized

With the advancement of industrial techniques and process, it is very important for the industrial workers or the members to assure their clients that they are using the best material, so that the clients believe on them. Today most of the industries are dependent on the extrusion profiles because of the fact that the materials that are being supplied by the extruded profiles are of very fine quality. The materials fulfill all the industrial requirements as well as the basic requirements.

In case of any industry whether it is locomotive or automobile or construction industry, the materials that are used should be of very fine quality so that the reputation of those industries do not get down. Extrusion profiles conceive the ability to fulfill all industrial requirements and specifically that of automotive industry. It is very true that the automotive industry depends largely on extrusion profiles because of the fact that the profiles that are to be used in the automotive industries should be strong and durable. If we talk about the aluminum profiles then it is said by the experts that the designs and patterns that are developed with the use of aluminum profiles are complex but they are capable of being molded into complex shapes. Extruded profiles that are to be used for automotive industries should be capable to take the daily wear and tear as well as the variable weather conditions.

Experts suggest using rubber extrusion profiles that works far better than that of the aluminum one. Though the aluminum profiles are the most commonly used but what is the problem to experience something new? Rubber profiles can be used easily on the window slide tracks to prevent the creaky noise of the glass movement. Most importantly the rubber profiles fulfill all the industrial requirements.

What Will 2008 Hold For The Automotive Industry?

Posted on July 4, 2019 in Uncategorized

The US economy and the resulting weakness of the dollar looks like it may well contribute to the price of crude oil continuing to rise as investors have been holding the commodity instead of dollars. This means that as the cost of a barrel of crude oil comes close to the $100 figure then so fuel prices have also continued to rise.

So do higher fuel costs mean we are likely to buy or use cars, vans and Lorries less in 2008? Well seemingly not based on a latest poll of motorists. Despite fuel prices increasing at alarming rates a whopping 79 percent of motorists questioned said they had not changed their petrol and fuel buying habits and had no plans to do so. In fact the motorists questioned said petrol prices would have to increase at even more alarming rates to stop them from filling up.

Environmental issues would it seem not be as important as governments throughout the world as over 1 in 3 motorists confirmed they had no plans to replace their vehicles for more environmentally friendly cars before 2010.

And so if motorists are seemingly unaffected by rising fuel costs and are prepared to continue driving despite increased road tax and the impact on the environment surely positive times are ahead for the industry in 2008?

Well before car manufacturers and dealers start doing cartwheels, caution would certainly be advised as whilst General Motors can seen promising performance in emerging markets they have seen big losses in both American and European markets.

And with the world economy in such an uncertain state as 2007 draws to a close 2008 could well see new car sales fall with used car sales increasing. Car sales and indeed sales of all types are also likely to increase via the internet in 2008 so car dealers (new and used) without an internet presence should really be looking at establishing themselves in this emerging marketplace.

And what of the actual motorist, what does 2008 have in store for us? Well how about further increases in vehicle tax, more toll roads, increased congestion charges and still a seeming lack of a viable alternative to road use through reliable, clean and safe public transport.

The good news for some motorists is that on one front whilst the government is seemingly do all they can to penalise the motorist by increasing the cost of actually fuelling and driving our vehicles, insurance premiums including car insurance, van insurance and motor trade insurance are pretty stable. In fact with such competition in the insurance industry the cost of insurance like combined motor trade insurance could even fall and savings could be made.

And motor traders who are looking to make savings on their motor trade insurance premiums in 2008 could save even more by using a specialist insurance broker. A insurance broker could well be the route to take to make sure they get the protection they need at a price that is right.

2008 promises to be another exciting year for car manufacturers, motor dealers, car repairers and indeed all involved in the automotive industry so buckle up and enjoy the ride.
