The advent and increasing adoption of electric vehicles have brought a wave of change to automotive and the commercial heat treating industry. While demand is dropping for many automotive parts, such as traditional powertrain components, the need for automotive seating components remains steady.
Vehicle seat components are considered safety critical because they need to be tough enough to survive a crash—if they fail, a driver or passenger can be injured, possibly critically. Because of this, seat components are required to meet stringent thermal processing specifications.
In this article, we discuss the key thermal processes used for seating components, how common materials respond, and how to use a data-led approach to yield repeatable results.
