The casting below is a clean sheet design. The design was part of a weight saving program and this design knocked 20% off the weight of the previous housing. Part of the the design brief was to make the housing "curvy".

Casting design from concept

I designed the brake housing below for Meritor, for an OEM air brake for Volvo trucks.

The housing had to house the standard Meritor brake internals and fit in a space envelope supplied by Volvo.

It was part of a weight reduction project and my design brief was to make the housing lighter (it ended up 20% lighter) and "curvy".

The design is based on 3 eggs, a beam, and an arch.
