Engineering & Metal Stamping of a Mounting Bracket for the Safety Restraint Industry
 

Our client's cast aluminum mounting bracket, which holds a canister that's filled with inert pressurized gas, was expensive and heavy. When the canister is activated it fills a large safety bag in less than 1/100th of a second.

A.J. Rose's engineers assessed the existing product's material makeup and manufacturing process to help them develop alternative solutions. Our zinc-plated HSLA stamped steel alternative had enough yield to be formed into an intricate shape while providing the required strength. We also conducted a finite element analysis (FEA) to ensure the new design would withstand the various forces that could be involved and ensured it passed all testing with a 2.5x safety factor.

We created the prototype for the client to test and took on the production manufacturing and progressive die stamping of the part which measures 7" long, 3" wide and 2" high. The new bracket design, material and manufacturing process proved to be lightweight, high strength and cost-effective.

We manufacture over 300,000 a year for delivery across the U.S. Please see below for more details on our engineering and metal stamping capabilities.
