Performance vehicle component design
Performance vehicle component design focuses on weight reduction in combination with improving the performance characteristics. A steel multiple-assembly pulley is replaced with a single, aluminum multi-groove pulley, as shown in the figures below. All dimensions are in inches, with a tolerance of +/- 0.010 inches. • Develop a process sequence to manufacture the special purpose pulley for 3, 350, and 250,000 components. • Justify the reasoning for the process selection, and indicate potential process performance and quality issues. • Discuss potential changes that you would make to the part to facilitate manufacturing, or to reduce the process costs.
