Every program has its own set of unique requirements. For battery enclosure projects, we can help plan the entire process, from R&D to production. We specialize in a range of joining technologies, including SPR, RSW, MIG, TIG, laser welding, and adhesives, ensuring we have the expertise you need. Battery enclosures also require unique testing, such as leak testing, which is done to every battery box. We then complete a dimensional check using CMM or laser scanning. This ensures every unit you receive meets your specifications.
We employ a wide range of complex robotic joining methods based on your project’s specific needs and requirements, including resistance welding, hemming, adhesives for structure and bonding, and an onsite curing oven large enough for a completed BIW. We also specialize in flow drills and laser welding, ensuring we are able to use the best possible joining technology for your program. Utilizing both manual and robotic welding allow us to customize the manufacturing process to give you the repeatability and flexibility you need. Our three Centers of Excellence give us the capacity for large prototype joining projects as well as hybrid assembly and production programs.
Our joining technologies include:
•AC manual weld guns (RSW)
•DC manual and robotic weld guns with adaptive controls (RSW)
•Press welder for fasteners (RSW)
•Clinch press for clinch nuts or studs
•Manual and robotic welders (MIG)
•Fronius “cold metal transfer” manual and robotic welders (CMT)
•Manual welding equipment (TIG)
•Drawn arc stud welding
•Self-piercing rivets (SPR) – Henrob & Bollhoff
•Flow drill screws (FFS & FDS)
•Bonding with onsite cure oven capacity for full vehicle BIW
•Roller hemming – adhesive & antiflutter
After assemblies are joined, we post machine critical features that need to be drilled in or tapped. This assortment of joining methods allows us to meet your joining needs, such as joining aluminum to steel.
We have designed and completed programs with a wide array of processes for many materials, including joining aluminum, steel, stainless steel, high nickel alloys, and titanium. We can join dissimilar metals of different thicknesses using our mixed material joining technology, ensuring we can join the materials your program requires.
Over 60 years of manufacturing innovation, supported by the latest in advanced engineering tools results in our on-time, high quality products. To improve accuracy and reduce trial and error, we utilize advanced engineering tools, such as stamping simulation, solid modeling, FEA simulation, and CNC machine coding. Our expertise in each of these processes helps us meet the challenging standards of the aerospace and automotive industries and deliver on-time, on budget programs for our customers. Our vertical integration supports a rapid response from concept to functional model. Read more about our process engineering capabilities at https://www.qmc-emi.com/capabilities/process-engineering/
We produce internal jet engine components that aren’t always easily available. Using reverse engineering, we produce drawings, tooling, and parts for obsolete or unsupported programs. We currently produce a variety of airframe structures and engine components for OEM and MRO needs. Contact us to see how we can help you.
Everyday we work hard to live by our Company values, incorporating them into every program we work on. Our number one value is safety and it is a constant focus throughout our facilities. Even as we improve and change our processes for new programs, we always place an emphasis on our values, continuing to be leaders in structural solutions.
