Chassis manufacturing and design challenges

With capacity to develop the complete chassis system, ÅF is experienced in developing and integrating systems.

Noise and vibration are critically important to getting the concept and basic vehicle design dynamic right, and ÅF has deep knowledge and experience in developing and integrating vehicle chassis systems.

With cooperation between design and simulation we can create a chassis system for you that will stand up to performance demands while remaining cost-effective.

Integrating  active systems for safety and performance enhancement is another challenge that you will face and ÅF has engineers who participated in the very first active safety system for serial production in the world.
