Vehicle body design and manufacturing
The body system consists of several subsystems and ÅF has expertise to provide cost-effective solution.
One of the most important tasks within vehicle manufacturing is the styling and design of the vehicle's body and ÅF has many stylists working in this area. It is a challenging aspect to reduce overall weight without violating safety and noise requirements. The body system contributes considerably to the overall vehicle weight.
ÅF has long experience in CAE simulations and CFD simulations, for example crash simulations and aero dynamic analyses. When it comes to manufacturing ÅF is leading in building lines, simulations for body components and systems.
