In the supply for the automotive industry, the main objective of both companies is to have a satisfied customer. Quality that is expected from us is given the utmost priority while it determines the entire management of all the processes that begins already in the phase of marketing and preparation of an offer. The goal of project management is to correctly set up all pre-production, production and control processes. The tools that we use for these activities are primarily based on ISO 9001, IATF 16949 and customer specific requirements using statistical methods of quality control during production. The entire process is described by the project management matrix. The first stage focuses mainly on a feasibility study, an RLA risk analysis and above all, on putting together a project team. The project team is nominated by the PPM based on the specific requirements of our customer. Parts development is completed in the second phase. This is mostly the result of previous production of prototype parts and their testing within the test series at the final customer's site. This phase serves to approve the final design of the part required by the customer, both from the aesthetic and functional perspectives. In the third phase, the project team focuses on the most demanding phase, namely on the preparation and planning of the production process. In this phase, the project team prepares mainly the Flow Chart (a diagram of the production process), drafts of the PFMEA documentation, Control Plan and Layout (distribution of workplaces and material flows) as well as similar work instructions. In cooperation with the designers, the construction of the tools are completed and produced in this phase. The final phase includes verifying the suitability of the process and approval of the entire process by the customer in the end.
All of these steps lead to the successful completion of automotive projects. Our goal is PPM 0, accurate fulfilment of customer requirements and deliveries of parts with the final rating of "A" – fully qualified supplier. Our project team can handle all of these very demanding steps, making both companies high-quality and stable suppliers with a high growth potential.
Production of headrest frames
In the automotive industry, FLÍDR s.r.o. focuses mainly on the production of headrest frames. These frames can be single-piece, assembled or welded, possibly in combination with a plastic box. The material used in their production can be a tube or solid material.
We manufacture the frames using well-proven cold forming technologies for bending, assembly and especially grooving.
Thanks to our many years of experience, we are able to offer grooving both by rolling and pressing using single-purpose machines as well as multi-position lines. We are also able to incorporate bending in these lines. For more complex and multiple bends, we can use our fully automatic bending robots.
