Simulation Driven Design for Manufacture of a Pressed Composite Automotive Tailgate

A technical paper, written by Andy Ngai (Senior Engineer) and Dr. Mark Arnold (Technical Specialist) was published by Desktop Engineering.

Penso was commissioned by a European automotive OEM to design and manufacture a continuous fiber reinforced composite tailgate prototype. This would be a lightweight alternative to the current production tailgate that is molded from Sheet Molding Compound (SMC), a discontinuous-fiber reinforced composite material.
