  Design
  Innovation & Cost Savings

• Hydro-formed cross member proposed as a two-piece clamshell design

• Initially deemed un-manufacturable

• NSI verified formability using forming simulation tools

• Design saves significant cost over hydro-forming due to
    – Increased processing rates
    – Reduced secondary operations


• Re-designed hydro-formed rails into a two-piece clamshell style weldment to improve manufacturing rates

• Eliminated pocket plate and incorporated the feature into the main stamping
