Vehicle installation & routing designs for heavy duty Euro VI
Customer: Automotive OEM
Market: Heavy Duty on highway – European market
BRACE execution: Chassis Domain cluster
Location: Customer site
As a result of changes in engine and cooling systems to meet EuroVI requirements changes to the vehicle are also needed, even impacting the chassis.
Vehicle installation components such as brake system valves and air pressure controls had to be relocated.
The task was to reposition the components while minimizing the impact for other sections of the vehicle. Also the routing of wiring harnesses and air pressure tubes/hoses had to be redesigned while maintaining or improving the easy of assembly and assure a robust and durable mounting.
The routing was done in the area from behind the cabin to the rear end of the chassis on several vehicle types.
