Automotive Body In White Design

Body in White is the main core element of a vehicle which protects the passengers during collisions generally made from formed steel/aluminum sections connected together by means of welding. Whether it is a sports car or a commercial truck, BIW is a unique aggregate in vehicle design. To design BIW engineers need diverse knowledge of metal processing, fitments, painting and crash behavior of vehicles. 

Body in White Domain Training at Technorithm gives a competitive edge to engineers with extensive knowledge of Body in White design from study sections to final assembly of the body.

We go beyond theoretical and CAD practices to present the real world scenarios to our trainees. To become a successful designer, It is essential for students or trainees to understand the practical perspective of manufacturing processes involved in the lifecycle of the Automotive Body. 

We arrange industrial visits to our trainees to demonstrate various manufacturing processes from the Press shop, different joining processes, assembly of components and fixturing equipment.
