Realizing Mass Reduction
We provide smart ideas to realize weight savings, mass reduction and performance improvements. Lightweighting offers:
- Metal to Plastic Conversions
- Integration of Components & Features
- Reduction of Assembly Complexity/Secondary Operations
- Innovation Injection Compression Technolog
- 3D printing (Plastic & Metal)
Techniplas uses topology optimization to re-design its portfolio where applicable towards next generation of lightweighting products. One of Techniplas’ most advanced lightweighting capabilities include a tailing suspension arm which achieved a 40% weight reduction using the Techniplas Prime Instant Quoter with its proprietary built-in Topology Optimization algorithm.
Lightweight 3D Printing
We are pushing mobility forward, bringing cognitive connectivity to every layer of the vehicles that drive us forward. With 3D printing complexity is free so we can now design for greater performance while leveraging more complex designs that are simpler to manufacture.
