18 months after the successful launch of HAPTICORE, the revolutionary haptic feedback technology for control elements, the STIWA subsidiary XEELTECH on the IAA in Munich launches the next innovation for the world market with RHEOSHOX.
For marketing of new, innovating product technologies STIWA group has founded the Joint Venture „XeelTech“ two years ago, along with the Vorarlberg development GmbH Inventus. Now, almost two years after the successful launch of HAPTICORE, XEELTECH brings another product revolution on the world market with RHEOSHOX. RHEOSHOX is a smart damping system that is configurable via a software and adapts to any situation in real time. This makes for example the cushioning of a motocross possible within a millisecond interval - dependent on the ground and situation the driver is individually adapted to the unevenness at any time and therefore protected from concussions while developing the optimum of performance. The damping system is based on MRF technology, that XEELTECH has already successfully developed into a series project. The utilization of RHEOSHOW can of course not only be found in offroad devices, but can be used in several mobility sectors up to industrial machinery or fitness equipment.
Innovations from Gampern
“I’m very excited that the next product innovation from STIWA together with Inventus can be presented with RHEOSHOX, which is unparalleled. There is no mechanical damping system that can compare today, which is such individually adaptable and can raise the security, the performance and comfort of the products of our customers to such an extent. We are talking about a technology revolution that could change all industries”, says STIWA Advanced Products GmbH Managing Director Josef Brandmayr excitedly. “A huge thank you to the entire XEELTECH crew, that has researched in the STIWA production plant in Gampern as well as in Vorarlberg intensively in developing this new technology in the last few months. This pioneering spirit and such extraordinary innovation power is what transforms ideas to successful series productions”.
STIWA shapes the change in the automotive industry
RHEOSHOX is first being presented to the professional community this week on the international automobile exhibition (IAA), the biggest mobility forum in the world. “With RHEOSHOX we are launching a technology with which we are clearly differentiated from the rest of the market” says Brandmayr. The time could not be better: We are currently experiencing a change in the mobility sector, that we have never seen before. Vehicles of all kinds are getting smarter, safer, more efficient, and more eco-friendly. “It is our requirement to actively shape the future of mobility with product innovations like RHEOSHOX. But mobility applications are only the beginning. We target a row of industries with immense potential for our technologies”.
