Zheng Zhou Biuco Children Products established in 2015, is a subsidiary of Yutong Group, the world’s largest middle-large bus manufacturing company headquartered in China.
Biuco has required ZAAFDesign to work on the Style Design and the Engineering of two high end Child Restraint Systems together with a company in charged of performing Virtual Crash Simulation (CAE) and FEM analysis. The products objective of the assignment were the following:
The stylistic features must characterize and distinguish the new born brand and respond to the market requirements of Chinese and Western consumers.
For both projects Biuco has opted for a turnkey project solution, which process started from the structure layout design phase and ended with the release of the final 3D CAD data for mould design.
The new products comply with the ECE-R129 and the ECE-R44/CCC standard requirements.
The task of expandable SIP used in combination with integral harnesses for G. 1-2-3 was successfully achieved.
For both car seats the structures are made in PA which performance results were controlled and adjusted during the development phase through the CAE analysis that has allowed to perform weight control, to skip prototyping moulds and to reduce the number of physical trial tests with a faster time to market.
