The day before was to be a trip to Fuji Speedway. It is capable of detecting even the slightest flaw on the piston shaft surface. This allows our powdercoatings to adhere better to the steel bodies.

Semi finished piston rods that have just been gun drilled for damping adjustable suspension applications. Some of our components are machined from billet blanks, which we cut from larger bar stock, using various grades of steel esport aluminum depending on the product requirements.
We stock three grades of aluminum billets, each one to be used depending on the application and use. After final assembly, kits are packaged up and shipped out!

It also runs nearly non-stop!!! A sampling of some of the suspension components our lathes can process, from prototype to finished product. We hope to continue doing tours for guests each year. Both comments and pings are currently closed. We had just over 40 guests for our tour on Dxport 19th.
We have many lathes to handle different processes, such as piston rod machining. Quite a fast and efficient process! This is information that can reach another suspension manufacturer!!! Vital for our piston shafts is our high-resolution inspection machine. The second floor of our factory handles our surface coating stages.
Such small parts require great detail, which this machine can do consistently. Again, we have to limit what jagazine can show the public.
We felt bad for our guests, though. Other than steel components, we also use aluminum alloys. Still a few more steps to being completed sub assemblies. If defects are found, we must discard the shaft. Here, threads being cut for piston valve assembly. We were hoping our tour would make up for that missed event! The tour went faster than expected, and considering the factory was in full swing when we had it, it was difficult to hang around the machinery for very long with TEIN staff trying to navigate around us.
These steel pucks will end up becoming our pillowball cases for strut type upper mounts. First, we shot blast our steel components. So why not show them?! Aluminum billets are cut into smaller billet blanks using either our band saw or circular saw.
We use tubing of various sizes to make damper shell cases to lower brackets for full-length adjustable dampers. But, due to bad weather the event was canceled. For aluminum damper shell cases, we use an A grade extruded tube, however.
Fortunately dspotr were able to showcase a lot of our machinery and even some prototypes. Overall, it looked to be a fun experience for our guests. So many people wanted to purchase TEIN suspension kits right away!!! So, to show that to the public may be detrimental to us since we do not want such information to be released to the public. In fact, there are some machines developed specifically by TEIN engineers solely for our own use.
We even had to speed through some demonstrations by factory staff. You can follow any responses to maagzine entry through the RSS 2. I got to speak with several of them and they were all impressed with our manufacturing. As you can imagine, TEIN as with many other manufacturers has some proprietary methods for manufacturing shock absorbers, with several processes pioneered in-house. Lower brackets, after any necessary welding, go through shot blasting prior to any surface coatings.
So it sounded like a prime opportunity to have TEIN show the public our factory. Second, consumers are just as interested in seeing how their products are made. A recent addition to our factory is this Laser Cutting Machine, capable of cutting steel up to 16mm thick using a carbon dioxide laser beam.
Our Materials Yard, where we keep inventory of parts to prepare for manufacturing our suspension.
