Vari-Form has manufactured the upper cross member on the 2014
Chrysler Jeep Cherokee using proprietary pressure-sequence
"The cross member is
part of a highly engineered front-end module that possesses a
complex architectural form and provides a weight reduction
solution," Vari-Form sales and engineering director Doug Viohl
said in a statement.
The contours within
the cross member facilitate integration of other front-end
module components, including the hood seal, latching, wiring
harnesses, headlights and mounts for the cooling system.
Troy, Mich.-based Vari-Form manufactures more than 7 million
auto parts per year worldwide, it said.
