In this edition of Auto Tech Review, we offer an insight about the megatrends in automotive materials space
Helping Additive Manufacturing Take The Next Leap With Simulation
What has been hailed as the transformer, in terms of industrial production, is now all set to take a further leap with simulation.
Industry Has Very Little Appetite To Support Further Diesel Development
Global strategic engineering and environmental consultancy, Ricardo continues to look at combustion improvements in engines. Talk about the CryoPower concept for long haul trucks and other heavy-duty applications, or the over 40 % improvement in thermal efficiency it has achieved in gasoline engines; the company continues to innovate while also developing solutions to address urban mobility challenges. Auto Tech Review recently spoke to Mark Garrett, Chief Operating Officer, Ricardo for a detailed insight into the organisation’s work.
Future Materials To Enable Automotive Industry Move Towards Megatrends
The functionality and robustness of a mechanical component is as good as the materials used to manufacture it. This holds well in the automotive industry, where cost is an important criterion for the selection of materials used in manufacturing.
Refinement, Efficiency Hallmarks Of Mahindra's 4D15 Marazzo Engine
SUVs are known to offer a more practical answer to mobility across tough conditions, while vehicles in the MPV segment are essentially large people-carriers offering comfort and convenience. This required Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd (M&M) to develop a vehicle much different from its usual offerings, for which the Mahindra Research Valley (MRV), along with the Mahindra Automotive North America (MANA), Detroit, and Pininfarina carried out collaborative engineering. The Marazzo was thus born as the company’s first multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) in September 2018.
Connected Car Apps Aiding Functionality & Ease
In today’s age, connectivity has gained a great deal of significance. Mobile phones have steadily moved away from being just a gadget for making phone calls, to facilitating a virtual environment enabling connectivity at unparalleled levels, be it for work or leisure. Carmakers have also accounted for this and many industry leading OEMs have come up with software solutions that enhance users’ connectivity to their car and beyond. Add to that the aftermarket products, facilitating similar functions.
Mahindra Addressing Climate Change With Smart Manufacturing Initiatives
Climate change today is one of the biggest concerns for humanity. The impacts of industrialisation and global warming have played a definitive role in the evolution of how businesses are done. In India, one of the foremost industrial groups to make strong commitments towards climate protection is the Mahindra Group. Spearheading the movement for the Mahindra Group is its Igatpuri facility, which recently declared its carbon neutral status without the purchase of carbon credits.
Focus On Empowering Mobility Through Safety, Intelligence, Alternate Fuels
The 16th edition of the Symposium on International Automotive Technology (SIAT) was organised by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) in association with SAE International, SAE INDIA and National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Project (NATRiP) in Pune from 16-18 January, 2019. In its 34-year-history, this was the first time that the event was organised outside the ARAI facility – at the Oxford Golf Resort, Hill Top, Pune – for want of more space.
Design Optimisation Of Automobile Crash Box
Muskan Taneja, a third-year Mechanical Engineering student at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani University, KK Birla Goa Campus, has diligently focussed on developing a solution to minimise im pact on a vehicle and the passenger in case of a car crash. This eye-catching innovation has been widely appreciated within the automotive industry, and helped her win the Indian Automotive Technology and Innovation Awards (IATIA) 2018 ‘Student Innovator of the Year’ award.
Wheeling Ahead With In-house Capability Build-up
Rockman Industries, a part of the Hero Group, is a leading supplier of aluminium die casting components, machined & painted assemblies. With two-wheeler alloy wheel penetration reaching as high as 90 % of the market, Rockman Industries is going full throttle to make the most of this growing demand. Auto Tech Review recently visited the company’s Bawal facility to know more about its operations and manufacturing prowess.
Topped Off With Power, Stability & Comfort
Power, stability and comfort are just a few highlights of what Maruti Suzuki has packed into the all-new third generation WagonR. While the new WagonR gets a bigger power plant alongside the existing 1.0 l engine, it has also been constructed on the fifth generation HEARTECT platform. This has not only created ample cabin room but has also made the WagonR more stable and comfortable to drive. That’s not all; the new model now comes with exciting features and at attractive price points. Here’s how it shapes up.
