The utilization scenario of front- and vehicle-mounted refrigerator features the long-term vibration, the frequent start and stop, the drastic temperature change in the cabin environment, etc. Those harsh on-board conditions requires not only products to fully meet those regulated vehicle standards, but also research and development team to display their “Know-how” competence out of their years of experience accumulation, so as to address those various contingent problems during the product development and manufacture process and offer corresponding solutions.
As a complex built-in component in the whole vehicle, the Automobile Built-in car refrigerator is one of the automotive configurations frequently used by drivers and passengers, so there are strict standards for EMC design, NVH, VOC, flame retardant, etc.Meanwhile, the car refrigerator ensure longer service life and a lower failure rate during the vehicle life cycle, which puts forward higher product consistency and reliability requirements.
Front- and vehicle-mounted refrigerator can achieve independently the complete product performance, and usually consists of various important components, such as appearance parts, functional parts, moving parts, structural parts and electronic parts. It sets more complex and stringent requirements in part verification, machine design, production process and other respects.
In 2014, ICECO was identified as one of the fixed supplier to Mercedes-Benz Fujian; at the end of 2015, the Company achieved the mass production of the ordered product. Simultaneously, as an independent component supplier, ICECO exported its products to Mercedes-Benz Span and became one of the only two domestic export suppliers designated by Mercedes-Benz Fujian in the year.
