Safety Solution for Major Auto Supplier

Summary:

Working with a major automotive supplier looking for a safety solution for convertible top component parts. The requirement of specific radii on component part edges was the goal. This, by design, would minimize passenger or driver injury upon impact.

Challenge:

To modify convertible top component parts and 100% gage to a specific radius. JTF was also challenged to develop a process at a more cost effective rate than automated processing.

Results:

JTF originally was tasked to do a small prototype quantity. Based on successful process results, JTF was awarded the entire project quantities until replacement, permanent tooling could be developed.
