First Sensor reaches 10-million milestone with OEM pressure sensor
The cooperation has been in place since 2011. Over the past years, unit volumes have been increased by around 40% per year. First Sensor has expanded the production capacity further in recent months and currently manufactures up to 15,000 units per day on two production lines - meaning that an OEM pressure sensor is completed roughly every six seconds.
"Long-term cooperation with major national and international companies is a key element of our recent-ly presented strategy," says Dirk Rothweiler, CEO of First Sensor AG. "Our goal is to generate economies of scale with both key customers and key products and thereby ensure profitable growth."
Wilhelm Prinz von Hessen, Vice President of Mobility at First Sensor AG, believes the partnership is large-ly built on the attractive price structure and the high reliability of the sensors delivered previously, and thus the company's reputation. "We can now look back on lengthy and trusting cooperation with the OEM," says Prinz von Hessen. "The stable, reliable performance of our sensors has made a crucial con-tribution to this." Pressure sensors in braking systems are important because they recognize when a vacuum in the brake booster is insufficient and the vehicle's automatic start-stop system must therefore be deactivated.
First Sensor develops and produces various OEM sensor solutions in accordance with the ISO/TS 16949 quality management system for the automotive industry. Aside from high-performance pressure sensors for measuring oil, tank, and gas pressures, its range of services notably includes optical sensors and camera systems for the market segments of passenger vehicles, special-purpose vehicles, commercial vehicles, and transport.
