Rain sensors are becoming increasingly common in modern vehicles as a safety feature. They require high precision and competitive cost.


The complex geometry found in this item is usually impossible to manufacture via die compaction. However, the use of undercut technology with different tool levels allows the close approximation to the geometry of cast parts, with higher strength, better dimensional precision and competitive cost.
