Tailgate Actuator

The tailgate actuator is widely used to support motorists in opening and closing the tailgate.

Shaping product excellence

Testing capabilities

We ensure actuator excellence and meet all quality standards in the automotive industry by testing them to the limit – especially towards service lifetime, resistance to external forces, and extreme cold and warm conditions (-40 to 120 degrees Celsius), as well as thermal shocks in the same range in less than five seconds. These results provide essential data for optimizing our applications and are integral to OECHSLER's high product quality.

Local sourcing

Global production network

OECHSLER operates fully automated actuator production at four sites in Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific. In addition to customer benefits in terms of cost and flexibility, we minimize our product carbon footprint through local production. At the same time, the sites ensure the highest level of quality throughout the entire production network. These high standards are validated by 100% EOL testing at all facilities.
