The window regulator is the mechanism that moves the window up and down. In power windows, regulators are powered by electric motors. There are two basic types of window regulators: the gear-driven type and the cable type. Gear driven type regulators are also known as cross arm or scissor or X-Arm type window regulators. The x-arm type window regulator is an old design and can be found in almost every classic vehicle. Though old it is current the largest used window regulator type. X-Arm type window regulator looks like a giant pair of scissors inside the car door. Itutilizes a linkage mechanism to raise and lower the window glass.As it expands, the window goes up. When it contracts, the window glass rolls down. It is built with virtually all metal components. One end of the main arm is connected to the window tray on and the other to a large plate with gear teeth. A smaller secondary arm crosses the main arm, hinged at a center point. Both arms slide on small wheels along a groove in the bottom of the window tray as they push the window up or pull it down. A major drawback of this regulator is that the wheels on end wear out over time and break off.This makes the glass to tilt sideways, and eventually fall into the door. It also wears out at the center crossing. A passenger car has four regulators, one in each door. X-Arm type window regulator is best suited for sedans and light trucks.
X-Arm type window regulator market – Dynamics
The automotive industry is leaping towards automation. Automatic features in every part of the car are in high demand. One of the earliest automated parts in automotive was power windows. Today almost all the cars have power windows. To operate power windows need a regulator. The most commonly used one is the X-Arm type. It is widely used owing to its simple mechanism and readily available raw material used in its manufacturing. With the development of technology, the production can further be reduced and the regulator can be made lighter by using lighter metals. This will fuel its demand further. The increase in automobile production, globally, will also drive the X-Arm type window regulator market.
