In some applications, metal components of an assembly can be substituted by plastics in order to reduce weight while maintaining functionality.
- Assembly flexibility: comoulding vs press-fit depending on requirements
- Geometry optimization of metal and plastic components in order to simplify the production process and reduce costs
- Maximization of plastic component to ensure the highest weight reduction
- Adoption of the most suitable plastic material for the specific application, able to offer the right functionalities (high temperature, insulation, sealing, hardness…)
- Body, frame
