Product category: Mechanical machining

Machining

Die-cast aluminium structural components are processed automatically at FINOBA AUTOMOTIVE using CNC machines. The company currently operates fourteen 5-axis machining centres; these are designed for use with complex machining programmes and can even be used for the contours of difficult-to-machine shapes. This allows machining to be carried out in a highly productive manner and with the high degree of precision demanded by the car industry.

Washing is carried out in a continuous process plant within the automated, integrated production unit; it removes residues of coolants and lubricants and swarf resulting from the CNC machining operation. An automated system introduces the design-specific threaded inserts into the component along different axes and at different positions and then checks are made to ensure they are seated correctly. Any deviations from the preset parameters are detected automatically.

Product category: Heat treatment

Heat treatment of structural components and chassis parts to T6

FINOBA AUTOMOTIVE uses a large continuous T6 heat treatment furnace with air quenching to heat treat aluminium structural components and chassis parts and obtain the mechanical properties demanded by the car industry. Special component-specific jigs developed and built by FINOBA are used to minimise the component distortion inherent in the process and thus reduce the amount of truing that needs to be carried out afterwards.
The obligatory checks of mechanical properties at different stages of the process are carried out using tensile and hardness testing in the company’s in-house laboratory.

Moreover, FINOBA AUTOMOTIVE is currently investing in an additional heat treatment plant with a modular design. From the autumn of 2012 onwards, FINOBA will then be able to quench thick-walled chill-cast chassis or engine components in water or polymer. It will also be possible to air-quench thin-walled cast structural components with the new unit, either as an alternative to the existing continuous-process plant or to increase its capacity. Thanks to their modular design, the furnaces can be retrofitted or extended in accordance with specific order requirements.

Product category: Assembly

Manual processing

Manual processing is used to rectify surface defects and remove troublesome surface structures resulting from the casting process. In particular, the reliable removal of troublesome edges ensures the desired quality can be achieved during subsequent processing.
FINOBA AUTOMOTIVE will be automating the cleaning processes it uses for mass-produced parts with the introduction of robot cells in mid-2012.
