GTP supports the major Tier 1 Safety System suppliers to the OEM’s in saving lives. This includes producing and supplying critical components used in Passive Safety Systems (Airbags/Seatbelts). These components are produced using required high-performance engineered resins are are required to maintain very tight tolerances and meet high-performance impact requirements.
To help satisfy the requirements needed for these safety-critical components, GTP utilizes an extensive APQP Process. We begin with encouraging collaborative engineering with our customers using the latest in design and simulation software to evaluate part and mold design prior to proceeding to production tooling. This includes Mold Flow Analysis to simulate the flow of the plastic material for optimum product quality and dimensional stability.
Seatbelts help to secure and protect the driver and passengers from injury or even death in the event of a collision. The components GTP produces for the Seatbelt System include; Retractor Covers, Stoppers, Web Stop Buttons, Retainers, Adjusters, Bolt Covers, Gears, Webbing Guides, Loop Covers and Buckle Release Buttons.
Airbags are inflatable cushions built into vehicle to help protect occupants from hitting the vehicle interior or objects outside of the vehicle during a collision. GTP produces C-Channels, Housings and Brackets used in Airbag Assemblies. Future plans include producing Covers for Driver, Passenger, Knee and Side Airbags.
