Utilising a mixture of manual and automated assembly cells, ACT adds value to its in-house manufactured components and bought-in parts, creating world-class assemblies for our clients.
Processes include ultra-sonic and high frequency welding, heat-staking, pressing and computer-controlled assembly such as torque-sensing. We have invested heavily in electronic ‘no fault forward’ assembly systems to maximise throughput, reduce costs and most importantly ensure very high quality results for our clients in the demanding automotive sector. Other quality-focused processes we use to ensure customer satisfaction include optical sensing of the correct placement of sub-components and computerised scanning and recording systems to deliver full traceability of sub-parts and final assemblies. Other time saving processes on offer include in-mould labelling with robotic placement and laser etching of components.
Wrapping is a key technology with ACT able to offer carpet, vinyl and leather wrapping of injection mouldings, composite panels and other components, to suit our customers’ requirements. Further recent investment has seen several highly-automated gluing and wrapping machines introduced into our modern Wrexham facility.
We are trusted by vehicle manufacturers and global tier-1 customers to supply complete assemblies ready to be fitted into the vehicle. Our finished assemblies are shipped to customers in the UK, throughout Europe and also to clients in South America and Asia.
Examples of products made in ACTs assembly cells today include barrier nets, load floors, roller luggage covers, trailer systems and exterior parts such as front grilles. Many of our assemblies are make-to-print contracts, following designs created by our clients, where ACT’s responsibility is to deliver these systems, often in hundreds of thousands per year, to exacting quality standards time after time. However, ACT also offers a full design service and can deliver full design, development and manufacture projects, based only on some key attributes provided by our customers.Get in touch
