Performance Solutions:

 

Dana Holding Corporation and BASF conducted an oil pan module study to demonstrate and validate that Ultramid® PA (Polyamide) can perform not only as an oil pan, but as an oil pan that integrates and combines multiple components and functions. These features will provide the OEM with a variety of benefits ranging from weight and cost reduction to the consolidation of parts and functions that will increase installation efficiency and decrease installation efforts.

 

The road traveled by the oil pan study was not without "bumps". Potential concerns and challenges included the resistance to stone impact, the amount of noise and vibration transmitted by the oil pan, and the results of exposure to high heat over time.

 

Overcoming the myriad of challenges was accomplished by conducting propriety CAE analysis and employment of other analytical tools, all of which confirmed Ultramid PA's ability to meet the material requirements demanded by this application.

 

Not only were analytical studies a key component of the program, but a production-intent oil pan module was placed on a Durango driven by BASF's Advanced Engineering Manager. The study is ongoing, but many initial questions posed relating to the performance of Ultramid PA in this type of module have been answered.
