Headrest Stays | Innotec

By: Innotecgroup  11-11-2011

Our dedicated headrest production facility is located in Arteaga, Mexico. We are situated minutes from Saltillo and about 1 hour from Monterrey. Tube is supplied regionally by our supplier partner and exits the plant formed and plated to our customer’s specifications. Tooling is designed and built in a simple automated approach with launch support from Zeeland, MI.

Our Process

  • Our unique cut to length process both cuts and chamfers in a single operation.
  • An automated proprietary notch cold forming process forms material into the center of the tube rather than removing material as in a broaching operation. This is achieved while retaining a minimum of draw depth.
  • Our process enables thin wall tubes down to and below 1.0 mm.
  • Current production product utilizing this process range in wall thickness from 2.3mm down to 1.25mm with OD’s of 12 to 14mm.
  • Innotec’s Chrome and Zinc plating lines have been specifically engineered for headrest stays. These unique process approaches allow for tight control of plating thickness and uniformity.
