Lightweight design combined with high load-carrying capacity – these are the key advantages of housing covers made of plastic. They allow the integration of still more parts and functions. This Freudenberg-Volkswagen-Development is now used in the Volkswagen group’s most important engine – EA 288. Three components were combined:
• Engine case cover
• Cover gasket
• Two thirds of weight reduction
• High resilience
• Integration of further components and functions
The innovative plastic housing handels its triple task perfectly, can be mounted more easily and fully automatically and weighs just 193 grams.
