Controlled linear motion
The new Renault Clio was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019. Along with it: a new, longitudinally adjustable centre armrest. It is characterised by a precisely defined linear movement. In addition, the front and rear end positions are indicated perceivably by haptic engagement. The successful development of this "Motion Control" running characteristic is a milestone for Schock Metall. A new market standard in the ergonomics of adjustable centre armrests has been created in this joint project with the Tier 1 supplier. To transfer the running characteristic optimally to the centre armrest, two guides each are fixed on a plate and delivered as a ready-to-install unit.
