Underbody heat shields cover a large surface of the underbody of the vehicle from the dash to the tailpipe and are often deep drawn to fill in the gaps and bend around the corners in the vehicle’s body architecture. Metal forming and process expertise are paramount to achieving proper coverage while minimizing part count. Underbody shields are commonly stressed by environmental inputs due to their close proximity with the road and are often required to be reinforced through the use of stronger materials and a more well-balanced attachment strategy. Acoustic performance is commonly added to shield in this application area to reduce noise entering the passenger compartment.
