Chassis development – from concept to series production
The chassis forms the interface between the vehicle and the road. Mechanical functionality, driving dynamics/comfort and driving safety are paramount when it comes to developing impressive components and systems.
We support you with everything from pre-development to series production, components to systems, and work across disciplines on construction, simulation, road testing and E/E integration.
With our experience in virtual and real-life automobile and vehicle construction, we are your ideal, reliable partner for the entire process of product development from methodical development to safeguarding.
Development of chassis components and systems
We develop your chassis components and systems from concept all the way through to series production, in full consideration of costs and lightweight construction targets. We have many years of expertise in virtual design and optimization.
Designing driving dynamics and driving comfort
Thanks to our many years of experience, we can resolve the trade-off between a sporty driving performance and comfortable mobility.We offer personalized solutions for every class of vehicle, from the basic design to fine-tuning the chassis. Specifically developed methods accelerate and optimize your development process, facilitating platform and modular solutions for your derivatives.
Virtual protection of the chassis
Virtual protection of chassis-related control units is absolutely crucial, reflecting the growing pressure on costs in vehicle development and ever-shorter development times. We support you in virtually safeguarding the simulation model, and support with function development and safeguarding at the HIL/SIL test bench or directly in the driving simulator.
Load data acquisition and structural durability
The structural durability of the vehicle (axle and bodywork) is very important to prevent operation breakdowns and potential indemnity claims or recourse claims. This is a significant prerequisite for customer satisfaction. To make valid statements regarding structural durability, we create a vehicle and region-specific profile of requirements for you, which contains all the necessary impact categories.
Based on this profile, we simulate relevant cutting loads in the entire vehicle model for all axle components and bodywork, which are tested for durability and service life with regards to calculation and design, using the finite elements method in the second step of the process. This is then followed by an assessment that provides information used to generate measures for optimization.
