Computer housing for an automatic transmission
As in other automotive products, the dimensions of this computer housing are critical.
Our client switched from metal to plastic for this product but was never able to achieve a perfect seal. Alligator came up with a concept in which we mould a plastic part around the connector and seal it with a second component, all in a single production process. We also modified the design of the housing. After assembly, the two parts are ultrasonically welded together. Even after extensive shock testing the housing remains perfectly sealed.
