Automatic Outward Opening Window In Big Automobile Maintenance Plant
Updated: Oct 24, 2018
The case was at Benz Automobile Maintenance Plant in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. They are going to update automatic window openers in maintenance area. Make sure every electric window openers are working well. In the meantime, providing fresh air for mechanics.

The plant had install electric window openers about 8 years ago. It was installed one linear actuator on the right and one gas lift on the left. This was an cost down way for electric window opener mechanism. But it was with very serious potential problem. When the mechanism was going to close windows, the linear actuators retracted to close windows. In the meantime, the gas lift was continually pushing out. The brackets and the window frame are likely to be broken. It's also with side effect for linear actuators. We could see from the following picture, there are many brackets broken.
Since this case was replacement, and the electric circuits are very old. We invited 20 years experience mechanic to in-charge.
In the beginning, he removed all old linear actuators and gas lifts. And then check all windows are working well with manual opening and closing.
On the other side, worker are preparing new linear actuators for installation. We chose KST-A0116 linear actuators with 400 mm stroke length. It could open the windows to about 70 degrees for ensuring enough ventilation area. Our mechanic strongly recommend use the special handle for KST-A01 linear actuators. With this special handle, we could slight change the direction of force for prolonging the service lift and closing window more tightly.
This time we install two linear actuators for each windows. Ensure every window could evanly push out and pull back. The DC cable was protected by plastic conduits.
The electric circuits was hiding inside the wall and window frames. Therefore, we only had to connect the DC cables with power supply from actuator controllers.
There are 20 windows in the first floor. Actuator controller was installed in operating room. They use wall switch for controlling all windows.
The following picture is old linear actuators. Some linear actuators are still working well but their brackets are broken.
The plant was design with large ventilation area. It's cool and full of fresh air. The mechanics could concentrate on repairing these luxury cars. It's also very convenient for manager to open and close window with only on button.
KST-A01 linear actuators was inline designed, with great anodized treatment for anti-rust and abrasion.
