6 Months with No Safety Recordables!

June 14, 2023

Safety is our top priority! Recently, all of our facilities achieved over 6 months with no safety recordables. We have strong safety practices in place and we have been building on them as every employee takes responsibility for not only their own safety, but their teammates safety, as well. Each facility has experienced a cultural transition that enables every employee to be involved in behavioral and physical safety practices. As an organization we are building a culture where we are focused on risk reduction with input from all employees. Team members look for safety opportunities and speak up when they see something we should improve, making sure everyone goes home safe at the end of the day.

  • Schoolcraft – 10 months with no recordables
  • Sterling Heights – 8 months  with no recordables
  • Farmington – 6 months with no recordables

Congratulations team! Keep up the great work and continue to Be Safe!

Our Press Hardened Steel Capabilities

Hot stamping metal

May 31, 2023

Hot stamping, also known as press hardened steel (PHS), is a process where a sheet of metal is heated in a furnace, transferred by a robot into a press, and formed in a steel or kirksite die. Our fully automated low volume, hot stamping cell provides reliability and repeatability in the manufacturing process of your parts. Our onsite metallurgy lab allows us to test our hot stamped parts post-production in order to validate the material properties and ensure that we meet your expectations for high quality products.

Our state-of-the-art hot stamping cell and metallurgy lab allow us to provide our customers with quality products every time.

Could hot stamping benefit your next program? Learn more at

Our Complex Robotic Joining Methods

Robots welding metal

July 22, 2021

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

•Laser welding

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.
