RocTool Sign License Agreement with Volvo Cars

RocTool has signed a license agreement with Volvo Cars focusing on the manufacturing of the IntelliSafe body part in the back of the central rear-mirror that contains the system’s radar.

After successful development, RocTool says its 3iTech allows a perfect replication of the microstructure of the mould steel for the production of the part.

Applied on the inside of the part, the RocTool technology brings significant changes to the optical properties of the surface of the plastic, preventing the rising sun lights that enters inside the part to blind the radar. As of today no other technology is able to obtain such optical properties on a one-shot manufacturing without additional operations (e.g. painting).

Stéphane Hersen, RocTool General Manager commented “RocTool is glad to bring its technology to a leading automobile manufacturer that is Volvo, with real added-value to Volvo cars. We are confident that this is the first step towards a long and fruitful cooperation between our companies.”
