Research

Our products are the result of intensive research and development work. In close collaboration with leading vehicle manufacturers, we are continuously developing new technically and economically trend-setting system solutions for brakes and hydraulic clutch actuations.

To meet this challenge, FTE automotive places great emphasis on having highly qualified employees. Our engineers find new ways of making driving even more comfortable and safe – for pure driving pleasure at a high level.


Development

In competition, it is not the big firms that assert themselves over the small firms in the long term, but the fast who stand their ground against the slow. Innovative product developments and program extensions are therefore characteristic of FTE automotive. The aim is always to be faster, more flexible, and better than the competition.

Not only are products optimized, but the entire company is in a continuous improvement process, which focuses on the personal responsibility and commitment of all employees.


Competencies

Based on the wishes and requirements of our customers, we develop our products from initial concept until they are ready for series production. FTE automotive has all the necessary skills to do this, starting with efficient project management systems, comprehensive development tools and a test field with in excess of 100 large fully air-conditioned function and endurance test benches.


Material development

The significant influence of sliding seal elements on the function and robustness of hydraulic components means that we at FTE automotive only produce such rubber parts in-house.

The specific compounds are developed in the lab and are tested carefully before production.

Innovative seals, safety caps and other rubber molded parts, as well as brake and clutch hoses can thus be adapted by FTE automotive very flexibly and promptly to the respective customer requirements. The tools, molds and devices for further processing through to the finished product are also developed in-house, so that new items can go into production immediately or series produced parts can be modified at short notice.
