Weight Optimization for Audi
compressor bracket

The following example illustrates how modern topology optimisation can be implemented at top level without the use of 3D printers. The current disadvantage of 3D printing is the cost of large quantities. Using our in-house topology optimisation tool, we have found the best combination of weight savings and manufacturability. This air-conditioning compressor can be cast and is therefore suitable for series production from both a technical and an economic point of view. With an air-conditioning compressor, there is a complex spectrum of a multitude of load cases, which we have evaluated and taken into account cumulatively. Together with the customer, we derived a design suitable for series production.
