Project scope

Development, construction, prototyping and series production of the entire cover assembly of the MAGNETOM Vida system incl. connection and simultaneous decoupling from the magnet.


  • Chem. resistance against cleaning agents
  • Biocompatibility
  • Fire protection in accordance with UL 94 V-0
  • Design effect in the area of “coloured” cover options
  • Light but rigid components

Highlight of the project

Front and rear trim as highly rigid components, to which almost all other cover components are attached. This saves a complex and costly substructure.

Range of services

Development and construction of the complete cover assembly based on design data and the attachment points to the magnet below.

The development considered all qualitative, technical and economical requirements.

The assembly consists of more than 600 individual components and comprises a number of manufacturing technologies available on the market, such as:
Twin-Sheet, thermoforming, injection moulding, TSG, GFK, RTM, PUR, laser-edge flexible parts and extrusion.

Hombach created product-quality prototype parts and delivers the complete assembly in series “”just-in-time”, including all mechanical and electrical and electronic components, ready to the customer’s assembly line.

The components are structure- or high-gloss-painted.
Flexible structure-paint systems are in part applied to the flexible foam parts.
