Body actuators

  • A wide range of customized and system-specific tool solutions
  • Flexible integration and simple installation
  • Longstanding experience of R&D and production since 1996

Constantly rising comfort and environmental requirements combined with the need to keep costs down have resulted in the development of reliable and innovative vehicle body actuators.

Vehicle body actuators are used to lock, unlock and remotely control tank caps for fuel filling nozzles, glove boxes, tailgates, hoods and seats as well as for special applications such as active control of grille shutters.
