Basic technical requirements for ballistic safety to guarantee the quality of civilian automotive armoring services in Brazil

Polytechnic School of University of Sao Paulo-Guido Muzio Candido, Paulo Carlos Kaminski
  • Technical Paper
  • 2019-36-0329
Published 2020-01-13 by SAE International in United States
Brazil is the largest civilian armored vehicle market in the world with more than 16,000 new protected units produced in 2018, followed by Mexico with 7,000 automobiles, according to Brazilian Army (BA) data. In this context, this paper presents an overview of Brazilian market for civilian vehicle armoring, definitions and characteristics of transparent and opaque ballistic resistance protective materials according to U. S. Department of Justice, the National Institute of Justice, NIJ Standard 0108.01. Based on this premises, the paper addresses basic technical requirements for ballistic safety in design and process to guarantee minimum quality of armoring services. The purpose of this paper is to safeguard the original features and functionality of the automotive components while simultaneously providing recommended ballistic protection of the vehicle with quality. The adoption of minimum automotive quality management system requirements from IATF 16949 International Automotive Task Force, in armoring services with different types of vehicle models and brands, will encourage to reduce tack time production, to improve vehicle armored quality, to reduce final reworks, to keep original equipment guarantees, to…

Technical and economic considerations in development design of bumper fascias of passenger vehicles in the automotive industry

PSA Peugeot Citroën Brazil-Guido Muzio Candido, Joao Carlos Souza, Ruimark Creazzola Silveira
Published 2010-10-06 by SAE International in United States
The aim of this paper is to present the technical and economic considerations in the development of projects of front and rear bumpers fascias for passenger vehicles in the automotive industry. Regarding to the technical issues addressed, there are: choice of the raw material, viable criteria of style surface and engineering, thermoplastic injection criteria, structural analysis, feasibility of assembly on the factory and after-sale, fixation concepts and many others. Regarding to the economical context, were evaluated: project and production costs, repairability costs, shock parking, components lifetime and communization. Based on the experience in previous projects and on the scientific literature, and applying the considerations presented, alternative ways of conducting bumper development projects are proposed. In this context, this paper aims to present a practical example of the application of this proposal, in current production line vehicle, exploring its main technical and economical impacts.

Methodology of plastic parts development in the automotive industry

PTI Engenharia e Projetos LTDA.-Guido Muzio Candido, Filippo Santolia, Marcos R. F. de Melo, Gustavo A. B. dos Santos
Published 2006-11-21 by SAE International in United States
Nowadays, the increasing use of plastic in the automotive industry complies with the desires of weight and cost reduction, material recyclability and increased performance. Today you can find plastic components in almost all subsystems of the vehicle, including the engine compartment, the interior cabin to the outside of the vehicle. Apart from the low weight, which can be translated to lower fuel consumption, the customer also gains with a gradual increase of plastic impact resistance due to the latest developments. It also contributes to automakers design and production versatility, useful life and keeping part quality related to steel (there is no corrosion).Faced with this scenario, the purpose of this paper is to introduce an automotive injection moulding plastic component methodology in order to obtain technical and economical benefits of the latest designs with reduced part development time, reduced tooling costs, flexibility and design of style and quality.

Current automotive components optimization - case studies

Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo-Paulo Carlos Kaminski
General Motors do Brasil Ltda.-Guido Muzio Candido
Published 2005-11-22 by SAE International in United States
In the early 1990s, Brazilian automotive industries have testified a new scenario with a competitiveness increased due to the establishment of foreign companies, which forced them to follow new strategies to maintain its competitiveness in the market. Innovation and quality become priority, as well as new technologies and product cost optimization.More specifically, the focus on current automotive products cost reduction is nowadays one of the most important strategies to provide significant increase in profits and market share of companies.The purpose of this paper is to introduce case studies and the technical and economical benefits of product optimization process applied in current automotive components, where the requirements of quality maintenance, performance and cost reductions are emphasized.
