Application: Smart Car Suspension
Problem: A smart car manufacturer wanted one spring that could achieve the appropriate car body height under three distinct load conditions: empty, with passengers, or 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 satisfied customer was able to move forward with the development of their newest smart car model.
