If defects are found, we must discard the shaft. We hope to continue doing tours for guests each year. A sampling of some of the suspension components our lathes can process, from prototype to finished product. First, we shot blast our steel components. For aluminum damper shell cases, we use an A grade extruded tube, however. Fortunately we were able to showcase a lot of our machinery and even some prototypes.

This allows our powdercoatings to adhere better to the steel bodies.

This entry was posted by Paul P. We even had to speed through some demonstrations by factory staff. So, to show that to the public may be detrimental to us since we do maazine want such information to be released to the public.

Some of our components are machined from billet blanks, which we cut from larger bar stock, using various grades of magazije and aluminum depending on the product requirements. Such small parts require great detail, which this machine can do consistently. After final assembly, kits are packaged up and shipped out! The tour dspott faster than expected, and considering the factory was in full swing when we had it, it was difficult to hang around the machinery for very long with TEIN staff trying to navigate around us.


So many people wanted to purchase TEIN suspension kits right away!!!

It also runs nearly magazie Overall, it looked to be a fun experience for our guests. This is information that can reach another suspension manufacturer!!! We had just over 40 guests for our tour on January 19th. Other than steel components, we also use aluminum alloys. We have many lathes to handle different processes, such as piston rod machining. We felt bad for our guests, though.

Vital for our piston shafts is our high-resolution inspection machine. I got to speak with several of them and they were all impressed with our manufacturing.

We stock three grades of aluminum billets, each one to be used depending on the application and use. It is capable of detecting even the slightest magazie on the piston shaft surface.

Each and every piston shaft is inspected. So it sounded like a prime opportunity to have TEIN show the public our factory. Quite a fast and efficient process!

Lower brackets, after any necessary welding, go through shot blasting prior to any surface coatings. In fact, there are some machines developed specifically by TEIN engineers solely for our own use. Aluminum billets are cut into smaller billet blanks using either our band saw or circular saw.

The second floor of our factory handles our surface coating stages. As you can imagine, TEIN as with many other manufacturers has some proprietary methods for manufacturing shock absorbers, with several processes pioneered in-house.

We use tubing of various sizes to make damper shell cases to lower brackets for full-length adjustable dampers. A series of some of our many lathes used to machine many types of our suspension components.

Again, we have to limit what we can show the public. Both comments and pings are currently closed. A recent addition to our factory is this Laser Cutting Machine, capable of cutting steel up to 16mm thick using a carbon dioxide laser beam. The day before was to be a trip to Fuji Speedway.

We were hoping our tour would make up for that missed event! Here, threads being cut for piston valve assembly.
