LightHinge+ - additively manufactured lightweight hood hinge with integrated pedestrian protection

The LightHinge+ hood hinge devised by EDAG in cooperation with voestalpine Additive Manufacturing and Simufact Engineering employs efficient software-aided engineering to make full use of the potential of additive manufacturing. Thus it achieves the ultimate weight reduction; and the integration of a pedestrian protection function, in distortion and residual stress optimised toll-free, tooll-free production with little reworking for small series.
