The objective was to manufacture the designed suspension from titanium using an additive process. The component therefore had to be optimized for 3D printing and the titanium material.
Optimization in numbers
11 to 1
In addition to a flow-neutral suspension arm, the production-ready design and titanium 3D printing resulted in a weight saving of 48 % and a 33 % improvement in performance due to the incident flow to the side boxes.
