Occupant Safety Systems

At ACS, we are the world’s preeminent manufacturer of pyrotechnic airbag inflator filters, coolants, and cushions. Our occupant safety systems are comprised of two areas: airbag filter technologies and seat belt cable assemblies.
In addition to providing recommendations of specific applications for filter media, our engineers also design all of the tooling and most of the required production equipment in-house. With a fully-staffed, in-house machine shop, both of our tooling lead times and costs are the most competitive in the industry.

Airbag Filter Technologies

Our airbag filter designs are primarily used to cool and remove particulate from post-combustion inflation gas flow, with some even functioning as propellant retainers. All these elements are critical to safe and effective airbag deployments. We are the only manufacturer of Pyrotechnic Airbag Inflator Filters that has a complete line of filter designs. Our line comprises of the following designs:

  • Knitted Wire Mesh
  • Woven Wire Mesh
  • Sintered Wound Wire
  • Expanded Metal

Seat Belt Cable Assemblies

At ACS, we have developed a robust, well-tested process to manufacture flexible bracket parts based on lessons learned from our extensive history in the OSS market. Our process includes the following steps:

  • Tool-controlled dimensions and critical features
  • 100% inline part inspection with one-piece flow
  • Integrated poka-yokes throughout the production process
