Kongsberg Automotive produces vacuum harnesses to transfer vacuum from engine to auxiliary engine components, such as turbo and valves (EGR). Increasing legislation`s for emission and fuel reductions are the driving force for engine downsizing and additional engine controls, consequently the need for an additional vacuum source and vacuum enhancer is increasing as is the complexity of these lines.

Kongsberg Automotive provides world class CAD service, material- and product know how to optimize the integration of these lines on the engine.
Advanced thermoforming technology and use of light weight and high temperature resistance materials contributes to the reduction of the CO2 footprint
