• Originally a weldment, the cast redesign bet- ter met the tight space and high load require- ments for the multifunction part. The casting supports and ties the fuel tank strap and rear sleeper components to the frame.


• Through collaboration, the team designed a casting that met requirements and reduced the overall cost of the system by 10%. Dotson identified opportunities to reduce cost by doubling core production, automating core placement, reducing riser waste and using an automated trim press process.
