Project Description

  • The customer wanted an austempered ductile iron front frame support casting similar to one they already had designed for lighter GVW trucks made out of aluminum.
  • We worked with the casting manufacturer and the customer’s stress analysis group to design and document a casting that could handle the loads while still being relatively easy to manufacture.
  • The final casting could be machined in 3 different ways to provide 3 different parts. This commonization of a casting which could be used for three different machined parts helped to reduce the overall cost of the parts.
