Application: Smart Car Suspension
Problem: Smart car manufacturer wanted one spring that would achieve the appropriate car body height under three distinct load conditions: empty, with passengers, and with passengers & luggage.
The MWI Solution:
- Worked with customer to determine requirements and tolerances for each load condition
- Designed a solution using variable rate spring technology
- Developed and tested a prototype spring that successfully provided a consistent ride height
The customer was extremely satisfied and able to move forward with the development of their newest smart car model.
