Onward Technologies offers body-side framing station optimization through CAE simulation to improve body-in-white (BIW) tolerance. Deflection is used with the solution to maintain tolerance with the fixture and to reduce scrap from repeated efforts. Fixture deflection was reduced from 1.62 to 0.15 mm (0.06 to 0.006 mm), improving the accuracy of the end product as well as the behavioral understanding of the assembly fixture prior to manufacturing. Repetitive settings are not required during mass production because of the improved accuracy; benefits include accurate BIW for improved vehicle tolerance and repeatability and decreased environmental impact through the reduction of scrap and waste materials. Onward works with both light- and heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers for design and development of BIW and powertrain systems and components using CAD/CAE technologies.
