Front wiper system working explained:

Bosch, the German engineering and electronics company, is manufacturing automotive components since 1886. The company is manufacturing state of the art automotive components. The ongoing research in every component they make results in world-class products with high quality and durability. The Bosch Mechatronic front wiper system is a result of hard work and patience.

The front wiper systems enable driving in rains. Wipers help to increase the visibility and avoid accidents. Bosch is manufacturing and supplying wipers to automotive industry since 1926. The company has 90 years of experience in wiper technology. Bosch made significant advancement in wiper technology since then.

Traditional wiper system vs Bosch Mechatronic front wiper system.

Traditionally wiper system works on the rotary system. Bosch designed a new type of system called mechatronic reversing system. This new system results in a lot of weight reduction. Bosch removed three components from traditional system tube, one connection link and one of the pivot housing.

In the new system, the wiper arm moves directly between the driver and another side with simple kinematics.  The intelligent control strategy helps to take on high environmental loads such as very heavy rains. As a result, the new system achieves weight reduction of about 1.3 kg. The weight reduction also adds space of almost 1.5l in engine partition.

The traditional system also uses complex wiring and relays. In the new system, they are no more required hence 0.3kg in weight reduction.  The mechanical solution for snow load protection and extended parking position are also no longer needed further reducing the weight of 0.8kg.

As a result, the new system now weighs only 2.4kg. The weight reduction to such an extent increases the total efficiency as well as helps in reducing emission.  This weight reduction has profound impacts as Bosch wiper systems are utilized worldwide on a large number of vehicles.
