Automotive

Just in time and Kanban are continuous improvement processes that are fully integrated in HFI’s processes and culture. That is why HFI has been a preferred supplier to automotive companies for years.

For the suspension market, HFI supplies solution such as innertubes for the fore forks of on- and offroad motorcycles. For these innertubes, we optimally deploy our expertise on exotic base materials, turning, grinding, chrome plating and finishing.

 

Additionally, HFI offers the option of adding an additional holder to chrome-plated pipes using orbital welding. These orbital welded products find their way into motorsport as shock absorber systems for, among others. the World Rally Car cars.

Components for the Suspension market are oftentimes produced in robotized production lines, this guarantees efficiency and therefor the right price-quality ratio. HFI is able to supply complete, client specific sub-assemblies, for example by making use of technologies applied by sister companies.

“An extremely high delivery reliability is not a luxury but a must in automotive”
