Energy Absorbing Module

The injection-molded Safe-TEC module’s design flexibility provides a unique safety-integration point, since stiffness can be tuned multi-axially to optimize energy-absorption requirements for occupants ranging from 5th to 50th percentile – all in a single component.  The module’s design can be integrated with existing injection-molded components to reduce weight, investment, and complexity and to significantly reduce part count.  Mass was reduced 0.91 kg/vehicle and significant cost-savings were achieved.  The pelvic version saves $3.20 USD for pickups and $2.77 USD for SUVs, while the armrest version saves $3.30-$3.50 USD / vehicle.
