Airbag Support


This is the first known application where EPP foam replaces stamped steel for a passenger knee airbag support bracket. The 15 lb/ft3/240 kg/m3 density foam sustains airbag deployment reaction loads at all environmental conditions and reduces mass 88% and piece cost 55% vs. the incumbent design. The weight reduction led to other benefits, including elimination of 2 assembly-aid clips, ergonomic improvements, improved vehicle fuel economy, and reduced shipping costs. The simplified manufacturing process involves no secondary processes, eliminated 3 torque monitoring joints for additional manufacturing savings, and is backward compatible for serviceability.
