Automotive Manufacturing Equipment

The automotive industry is a fast-paced, dynamic, and exacting business. It requires suppliers to be nimble in response to the ever-changing needs of their customers while maintaining the highest quality standards to ensure that every part and assembly arrives at the next step in the process without issues. In the automotive industry, poka-yoke (error proofing) is the name of the game.

At Ahaus, we have been working closely with the automotive industry for over 40 years. We have developed workholding, special machines, lean systems, and fully automated cells for a wide variety of automotive components and subassemblies. If your business involves chassis, powertrain, HVAC, or lighting components, we have the experience and technical knowledge to develop a unique solution to meet your needs.

“Thanks for the job well done. Even last week, I would not have bet that we would have hit this home run! I consider this a home run with both lifters installed, operators trained and Ahaus supporting the training of both shifts.”

It’s Our Mission: Customer Success

Sometimes a company comes to Ahaus with a specific production need and an idea of how to address it. In those cases, we work in tandem with that customer to resolve the manufacturing challenge. Other times, however, a manufacturer comes to Ahaus with nothing more than a need, giving Ahaus’ engineering staff both the challenge and the freedom to start with a blank sheet solution. From simple to complex, the results of these projects speak for themselves.
