With the support of our sister company JOKON located in Bonn (Germany) we have been assigned by Ficosa for the development, validation and manufacturing of the Blind Spot Detection Light for the new Volkswagen Passat that has just come into serial production.
This is a major step in our development that we have succesfully passed. To run this project we have involved the joint expertise between JOKON and VMI to design the lens, the 3 LEDs electronic circuit and the automotive mass production process.
We buy the electronic circuit with its LEDs only. The rest is done internally : plastic injection (including 2K cover / lens), assembly and Ultra-Sonic welding, leak test and light control.
New Passat is a first project to start in production. Other projects will start in seiral production during 2015, still with Ficosa for Volkswagen.
