Automotive Seating Design & Development

Imagination Meets Innovation

As a high-quality, global automotive seating supplier, Tachi-S always strives to “take the driver’s seat” while developing seating. This means studying current trends while anticipating future demands. It involves looking beyond the physical structure of a seat and gaining an understanding of what the seat means to the vehicle, the driver and the passengers.

To us, it’s not just a seat. It’s the start of becoming one with your car, truck or SUV. The embrace of the seat. The texture of the fabric. The feel of the road. It enables us to understand today, so we can better design for tomorrow.

The result is world-class technology and the most advanced engineering and insight applied to your seating programs.

CAE—Computer Aided Engineering

Tachi-S utilizes a variety of CAD software (IDEAS, UGNX, CATIA V5, PRO-E) to help reduce product development time, decrease costs and improve the safety, quality and comfort of the automotive seats we design and develop. Our CAE test setup procedures are designed to meet OEM specifications. Standard analysis procedures are followed globally for consistent results and accuracy.
