Rotating front end module stillage

Rotating front end module stillage for Bentley Motors

The Bentley brand is synonymous with luxury automotive craftsmanship, craftsmanship which needed to be well protected in transit. Bentley approached Unifabs to create a custom stillage design to accommodate two front end modules in as small a footprint as possible. The stillage needed to be robust enough to protect the modules in-transit to Europe. It also needed to be capable of interfacing with a lift assist system to present the module to the car line side.     

Following close consultation to understand the line side requirements, Unifabs industrial design team drafted an initial concept of a rotating stillage. A prototype was manufactured capable of rotating the module within the stillage, and further refined to provide an effective solution. 

The prototype minimised footprint whilst offering maximum protection in transit and usability at line side. An initial 15 units were produced to aid production with a further 160 units ordered.

Prototyping enables us to prove out components and designs, allowing for refinements to be quickly made and tested. This step in the design process is particularly useful when products integrate with other systems
