Automotive Metal Forming
Metal work, forming and welding automotive parts are one of the core businesses of Thai Summit Group from the experience of 40 years. The Thai Summit Group has the potential for forming and assembling diverse parts in all customer groups, such as metal tank, central pillar hot stamping parts, covering the body in white structure product, and including aluminum forming which has both tandem line, progressive line and transfer press production lines with production bases both inside and outside the country. In addition, the company is committed to developing metal forming with a variety of processes, including hydroforming and hot stamping to meet the needs of the customer.
Embracing Industry 4.0 technologies, Thai Summit engineering team has implemented full automation assembly line concepts, changing from the previous semi-automation manufacturing. Instead of semi-automation cells, the new full automation assembly line layout is a simple line that saves space and does not require any workers. The line is equipped with robots, assembly fixtures, AGV for loading/unloading with an auto racking and a vision system. While having parts loaded and assembled by robot, the finished part will be detected and quality checked by a vision system. Therefore no NG parts reach the end customer. Furthermore, the NG data acquired by the vision system can alert a production engineer to correct the system, which reduces scrap rate and improves the quality of the part.
We have the capability to produce rear bumper asm for one ton pickups, from design, production and testing, with the best solution for VA/VE concept for the customer. We provide the customer with simulations from software and offer alternative such as precise standard design, reduce prototype process, reduce design lead time and reduce trial cost, to meet the customers' needs.
