Spiral catalyst support is one of the substrate types for catalytic converter which reduces the harmful emissions from the combustion engines. Currently, an issue of considerable interest is to design a catalyst support which can increase the performance of catalytic converter. Consequently, three patents developed in recent years for the development of spiral catalyst support, which produces a mandrel as an apparatus to provide a structure which prevents telescoping of the layers of a spiral catalyst support and two methods for manufacturing the spiral catalyst support, welding multi-points and heat treatment of metals. The aim of this paper is to present the alternative of an innovative tool to develop a spiral catalyst support based on Pahl and Beitz model of design process. The conceptual design was used to generate principle solutions and optimize the design concepts of an innovative spiral tool development as a forming tool to form a sheet metal in spiral form. The spiral form was successfully produced by an innovative spiral tool without considering the springback behaviors.
