The wiring harness in the wheel arch is subjected to permanent mechanical stress. On the front axle, the dynamic load is compounded by the steering movement. But it's not just uneven roads and curves that put stress on the wiring harness in the wheel arch; environmental influences also play an important role. The right material is essential here, because the cables have to withstand extreme sub-zero temperatures, high temperatures, wetness or dirt. To withstand the dynamic stresses of driving, the cables must be laid precisely, must not come into contact with any other components and must not be subjected to tensile stress.
WeWire has extensive experience in the design, development and production of safe, customized wheel arch wiring systems. That is why we are now one of the technology leaders for this demanding installation space.
There are many terms in the industry for wheel arch harnesses: They are also known as wheel arch wiring or axle wiring, among others. But whatever you want to call them, the key issue mostly concerns safety. Safety. It all began with the first cable harness for the anti-lock braking system. That has been supplemented over the last few decades to include ESP, shock absorber adjustment, electronically controlled suspension, brake lining wear monitoring, electric parking brakes, tire pressure monitoring systems, and a host of other features.
The scope of these functions will continue to grow in the future, for example through highly automated driving. WeWire offers customized wiring solutions for this: While other manufacturers lay a single cable for each sensor or actuator, our integrated approach allows us to reach multiple sensors with a single sheathed cable. This not only saves space, but also costs.
The US startup Lucid Motors brought us on board as a development partner for wheel arch harnessing. With our experience, we were able to offer the customer an optimized overall solution including self-developed components in a very short time.
Design, consulting, development and manufacturing: At WeWire, you get everything from a single source. As a development partner of OEMs and suppliers, we create individual cabling solutions that prove themselves in demanding practical applications. We are also experts in simulation-based wiring harness development. With this special know-how, we shorten development phases and save resources.
This is what you as a customer can expect from us:
