Rear Differential Cross-Member

This is said to be the first application where a PA/glass composite has been used as a cross-member to support the rear differential and complete the rear cradle of a vehicle. By replacing traditional parts in steel or aluminum, the injection molded glass-reinforced PA 6/6 design offered parts integration opportunities, is cost neutral, reduces noise transmission from the driveshaft, and reduces mass 25 %, helping improve fuel economy and reduce tailpipe emissions. The grade used has been optimized for dynamic loads and is controlled with tighter production specs.
