Customized Solutions to Reduce Chassis Mass by 25%
Tallent Automotive Ltd is a world class designer, developer and manufacturer of innovative chassis structural and suspension systems, supplying companies such as BMW, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Jaguar, Land Rover, Nissan, Porsche, Renault, Saab and Volkswagen. To meet the growing demands for lightweight, fuel efficient vehicles, Tallent Automotive required a more automated method to produce minimum mass sheet metal chassis components which took performance targets and manufacturing constraints into account.
To achieve the project goals, Tallent Automotive worked closely with Altair ProductDesign’s process automation team to develop the ‘eDICT’ (evolutionary design in chassis technology) system, a combination of custom design tools and a tailored interface for the optimization technology in the HyperWorks simulation suite.
