Multifunctional safety products for high-end vehicles
Current safety requirements for component manufacturers in the automotive sector impose new constraints with regard to materials. This is particularly the case for high-end vehicles that incorporate more composite materials.
The objective of this project is to develop new products for the automotive industry using a combination of processes such as additive technology + thermoforming and injection + thermoforming. Design tools need to be adapted to these new processes.
SEGULA Technologies has been working on the simulation of composite parts and its manufacturing processes (RTM and thermoforming) in order to develop tools for designing and evaluating these processes.
