Technology Project Development of Lightweight Components based on Bionic Structures
Scope of performance:
- Concept development
- Design and Simulation at case studies.
- Feasibility and Optimization with Customer.
- Development transfer to other vehicle parts.
- 10 -20% Weight reduction of the headrest with sufficient rigidity and comparable tooling costs.
- Strengthen the Lightweight Development Cluster.
- Design ProposalBasedon a Diatomeen.
- One tool, 2 equal shells connected with a live hinge.
- Ther od gets non-detachably catched by a clip connection.
- 120g weight(HD-PE) -> ca. 40% weight reduction to the base version.
- Proposal offers the opportunity to foam the part directly to realize further savings.
