Production Feasibility

Ready. Set. Build.

Hinge Prototypes

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.
