Economical lightweight door for commercial vehicles


It may sound simple at the outset, but this is nevertheless a far-reaching change: the weight of a door for long-distance trucks designed to meet future legal requirements has been reduced by 20% - at no extra cost. The door provides the driver with a maximum viewing angle and has been optimised to provide pedestrian protection.

"WiLeitNu" is a project sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, on which EDAG worked in close cooperation with partners Fischer Hydroforming and Muhr Metalltechnik. A virtual model was presented for the first time at IAA 2018, and the physical prototype will follow in 2020.
