Material Developments in the Automotive Frontend

Colin Pawsey

In recent years the modularization of vehicle front ends has reduced the number of components, and encouraged the integration of safety, styling and engine cooling into singular modules. The driving factors in the design and manufacture of front ends are weight reduction, simplified assembly processes, and reduced complexity. Innovation in this area of automotive manufacture is continual, and one of the key developments currently is in the production of new materials, particularly lightweight plastics, which are enabling the design of ever lighter front end modules.
