Exhaust Hanger Bracket
Plastic exhaust hanger bracket
   developed to replace metal
   hanger
Nylon was selected for its strength
   and ability to function in high heat
   applications
Validation tests provide data that
   showed the plastic exhaust hanger
   bracket performs comparable to
   the metal
The new exhaust hanger bracket
   reduced part weight 67% and
   provided a cost savings of 58%

Inlet Tube
As a replacement of value-
   engineering, designed a plastic

   brazed metal tube assembly
Reduced complexity through design
   of a rotating locator plate
Eliminated the need for fasteners
Reduced part cost by 68% and
   provided weight reduction
