Case Study: Design Support of Engine Motor Mount for Epsilon II Platform


Key Issues Reported by Customer

  • Existing design was an afterthought since the original cast design failed during testing.
  • Current part has too many welds and was difficult to manufacture with any consistency.

Bailey's Solution

  • We requested and obtained the design envelope and load cases for the component.
  • Redesigned the mount with three stampings eliminating the drawn-over-mandrel tubes and minimizing weld complexity.
  • Conducted FEA structural analysis to validate the new design

Customer Acceptance

The part prototyped took many of the elements in the Bailey design as shown below.
