Decklid & Hood Assemblies

Outer Skins for Decklid & Hood Assemblies are formed from one tool in either 1.0mm or 1.2mm thick aluminium. Inner Skins with Hinge & Lock reinforcements incorporated in the single tool offer a cost effective way to manufacture the full assembly of parts.

The maximum size that can be achieved is 2000mm x 3000mm x 600mm. Following the forming process laser trimming, SPR assembly of the reinforcements and robot hemming operations complete the manufacturing process. This method of manufacture keeps the tooling investment low and provides lead times within a 24 week period.
