Production FeasibilityReady. Set. Build. Maximizing production efficiency is a key aspect of Multimatic’s engineering approach. Our strategies to ensure successful high-volume production include: FEA-based forming simulation Prototyping with high-volume production intent: Forming process development, including press energy tracking Process simulation Blank development Linked design of prototype and production dies Weld sequencing and fixturing development ‘Lessons learned’ from existing production Collaboration and continuous feedback between design, analysis, test and prototyping teams Early engagement of engineering and manufacturing to enable seamless hand-off to production Optimizing weld sequences at the prototype stage saves time and money in production.
