Automobile manufacturers, designers, and cockpit system integrators are in constant search of solutions that reduce the number of interruptions across interior surfaces. Engineers require that this solution be efficient in terms of reliability, parts complexity, packaging space, and cost.
The purpose of this paper is to describe the design and development of a cost effective, simplified seamless passenger airbag door system with an integrated chute for instrument panels. Through engineering thermoplastic material property advantages and scoring designs, this solution has a construction which may meet both styling and performance criteria while eliminating component parts such as a separate airbag chute, hinges, tethers, brackets, inserts, fabrics, and fasteners.
