You might be aware that FIAT has been a user of our harness design software E3.series for seven years. That means all FIAT group vehicles including Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati and the main stay FIAT brand of vehicle, including the FIAT 500.
Hot on the heels of Racetech and Teepee Electrical, another autosport supplier has recently opted for E3.series to design their harnesses. I’d like to introduce HCI Systems and the man behind the operation, Mike Tickner. Why E3.series… and why now, was the basis of our chat last week.
When companies identify ways of making huge time savings in their supply chain that are then proven in practise, it’s great news all round. I recently heard how David Mullan and the team at High Peak (one of our UK electrical resellers) are working with Emergency One (fire engine manufacturer) and their harness manufacturer, Teepee Electrical.
With electrical faults being the biggest reason for failure in the Formula Student car entries, the University of Wolverhampton Formula Student team decided to up their game on the harness design of the 2016 entry car, by working with E3.series for the design of the vehicle’s wire harness.
I recently read an article about an up-and-coming automotive manufacturer that’s beginning to make a splash in a niche market. Starting off with a complete rethink of vehicle design, their main aim is to create a car that’s easy to maintain and has a low long-term cost of ownership. The company built a new platform, carried out extensive research into their potential customer base, and set up local manufacturing facilities.
