  • Publication number: 20220371431
    Abstract: A front-end section for a motor vehicle, having at least one air inlet opening for supplying a cooling air volume flow to a cooling module arranged behind the air inlet opening. In the air inlet opening, there is arranged in each case one slat device with multiple adjustable slats which are arranged adjacent to one another and which are each pivotable about a pivot axis between a closed slat position and an open slat position. The slats each have, at their end facing toward the cooling module, an air-guiding element which is configured such that, in an at least partially open slat position, the cooling air volume flow is diverted in the direction of the cooling module by the air-guiding element.

  • Publication number: 20220289315
    Abstract: An air guide device of a motor vehicle body has a flow channel including an inlet opening and an outlet opening. The inlet opening is formed in a front-end region and the outlet opening is formed at least partially in the region of a wheel arch of the motor vehicle body. The flow channel is provided for being flowed through by air from the front-end region of the motor vehicle body in the region of a rear end of the motor vehicle body. The inlet opening has a slat arrangement for changing a flow cross section of the inlet opening. The flow channel is at least partially of two-part form, wherein a first channel part, which includes the slat arrangement, is designed for a controlled throughflow, and wherein a second channel part can be flowed through freely.

  • Publication number: 20210268895
    Abstract: A cooling air opening arrangement is for a motor vehicle front end. The cooling air opening arrangement has a peripheral edge surrounding a cooling air opening, and a plurality of slats. The slats are arranged substantially in parallel to one another and extend in the cooling air opening within the peripheral edge. The slats are arranged in a pivotably mounted manner in such a way that, in a first pivoting position, the slats are arranged such that the cooling air opening is substantially open for air flow and, in a second pivoted position, the slats are arranged to close the cooling air opening. The cooling air opening arrangement further has a peripheral sealing frame against which the slats bear in a sealing manner. The peripheral sealing frame being provided on the peripheral edge. Adjacent ones of the slats bear against one another in a sealing manner.
