Design and development of new products whether this is based on current technology, new concepts or innovative solutions based on new market requirements is at the heart of INERGY.
Product design teams play a key role on product performance, cost and design for manufacture as well as ensuring that we meet key product development milestones and satisfy the timing requirements of our customers.
Taking into account the space allocated for our product within the OEM vehicle packaging constraints, we design the complete system to meet customer objectives on cost, performance and timing by using our system know how on product architecture, manufacturing feasibility and components.
We use state of the art CAD technology and apply our fuel system design standards to design the most appropriate system, “right first time” according to Technical and Economical targets.
From the very beginning of the design phase, we integrate manufacturing constraints and use internally developed computer aided tools to optimize:
- Venting: definition and optimization of the venting architecture
- Gauging: establishment of gauging rules & definition of the best position of the gauge
- Volume: determination of usable volume to reach target fixed by customer
- Filling: determination of Nozzle position ensuring the most appropriate rooting and flow optimization for refueling
We are able to generate 3D models and 2D drawings compatible with most systems currently used in the industry.
Our product design capabilities are hosted in our 5 technical centres and 6 technical antennas worldwide. They share the same tools and standards and are linked together. Our proximity to car manufacturers is key to ensure an efficient partnership especially during the design phase.
