Added Value Operations (AVO)

Exypnos offers manufacturing activities as ‘Added Value Operations’ for specific prototype and serial production programs. We create added value in an innovative and cost efficient single-step operation that facilitates diverse and complex product assemblies.

The Exypnos engineering team operates in close cooperation with our customers to define product design possibilities and to safeguard the production and quality performance.

Exypnos masters and implements the ‘WST’ or ‘WSTplus’ polyurethane edge framing technologies and the ‘Component Bonding’ in a wide range of applications.

Exypnos Facilitates Technology and AVO Operations for Solar VIPV Integration

We integrate Photovoltaic Systems and extend the range of the vehicle as you drive and tackle the Limited Range and Charging Hassle of the EV.
The extra incoming power of our VIPV System results in a more Compact and Lighter battery system and that leads to a Lower Vehicle Mass and Less Energy Use.

Vehicle Integrated Photovoltaic systems are part of the future of E-mobility, with a mission to capture and use the energy from the sun instead of only charging over an inefficient grid.

Exypnos designed the aesthetical and functional polyurethane framing for Lightyear’s VIPV (Vehicle Integrated Photovoltaics) pilot project made especially for the Tesla Model3, creating the perfect fit with its windshield and backlight.

Thanks to the power of the sun, the dream of driving longer with less energy from the grid is a reality

The polyurethane framing does not only shape that perfect vehicle fitting, it will secure the performance of the VIPV system over lifetime by acting as moisture barrier and protect the laminated PV module. By using our WST low pressure polyurethane pouring technique, Lightyear was able to design the VIPV product with a minimum glass thickness, without any risk of breakages during the framing process performed at Exypnos in Belgium.
