Drive -Axle Inspection-Cover Assembly

This rear-differential inspection cover for commercial trucks has been converted from a 7-piece aluminum and steel assembly to a 2-piece aromatic PA system that reduced weight >40% and cost 20%.  The resin was selected for its high strength, chemical compatibility, and creep resistance.  Developed in <20 weeks, the system has passed rigorous gravel bombardment, thermal cycling (spike and shock), dimensional integrity, and chemical resistance tests and also provides savings on warranty, freight, and serviceability, plus provides a quieter transmission without need for secondary parts or sound dampeners.
