Airbag components

Functional elements and assemblies for gas generators from M. F. Karg GmbH – tried and tested milions of times!

Airbags or SRS (Supplemental Restraint Systems) are a central element in all modern passenger restraint systems in motor vehicles. In the event of an accident, a pneumatic safety cushion is inflated in 10 to 40 milliseconds by a gas generator and this prevents or cushions the impact of the passenger on solid parts of the vehicle. First and foremost, they reduce the risk of head and ribcage injuries. Different airbag systems are fitted to cater for the person to be protected, the region of the body and the type of accident.

Since as far back as the mid-1980s, technical wire elements and small assemblies from ASW-Karg Wire Technology have been supporting the developments of the world's market leaders in these systems:

  • Driver's airbag - passenger airbag - side airbag - head airbag - knee airbag - seat cushion airbag - rear airbag - motorbike airbag ...

The modern airbag is one of the most important safety components in the car and this is why it is impossible to imagine life without it. A whole series of our products are used in the gas generator of an airbag and they act as a porous medium for • filtration • cooling • noise attenuation • condensing pollutants.

Our knit wire mesh and assembly components ensure functional reliability under different conditions and compensate for thermal expansions in the airbag. They offer heat dissipation, filtration and flow diversion in lots of different versions. On request, we will also take care of the installation and partial installation of individual system assemblies for our customers.
