After final assembly, kits are packaged mahazine and shipped out! 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.

Other than steel components, we also use aluminum alloys. Each and every piston shaft is inspected. A sampling of some of the suspension components our lathes can process, from prototype to finished product. In fact, there are some machines developed specifically by TEIN engineers solely for our own use. It also runs nearly non-stop!!!

We even had to speed through some demonstrations by factory staff. We stock three grades of aluminum billets, each one to be used depending on the application and use.

These steel pucks will end up becoming our pillowball cases for strut type upper mounts. Semi finished piston rods that have just been gun drilled for damping adjustable suspension applications. The second floor of our factory handles our surface coating stages. Quite a mavazine and efficient process! I got to speak with several of them and they were all impressed with our manufacturing. 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.


Fortunately we were able to showcase a lot of our machinery and even some prototypes. Here, threads being cut for piston valve assembly. We felt bad for our guests, though. 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. 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 magaziine to navigate around us.

First, we shot blast our steel components. Still a few more steps to being completed sub assemblies. Vital for our piston shafts is our high-resolution inspection machine.

Our Materials Yard, where we keep inventory of parts to prepare for manufacturing our suspension. So it sounded like a prime opportunity to have TEIN show the public our factory. Overall, it looked to be a fun experience for our guests.

This is information that can reach another suspension manufacturer!!! This allows our powdercoatings to adhere better to the steel ds;ort.

Such small parts require great detail, which this machine can magzaine consistently. We have many lathes to handle different processes, such as piston rod machining. You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2. We hope to continue doing tours for guests each year. Second, consumers are just as interested in seeing how their products are made. So many people wanted to purchase TEIN suspension kits right away!!!


Both comments and pings are currently closed. Aluminum billets are cut into smaller billet blanks using either our band saw or circular saw. For aluminum damper shell cases, we use an A grade extruded tube, however. If defects ddport found, we must discard the shaft.

Lower brackets, after any necessary welding, go through shot blasting prior to any surface coatings. We had just over 40 guests for our tour on January 19th. Again, we have to limit what we can dspoft the public.

We were hoping our tour would make up for that missed event! A series of some of our many lathes used to machine many types of our suspension components. This entry was posted by Paul P. Some of our components are machined from billet blanks, which we cut from larger bar stock, using various grades of steel and aluminum depending on the product requirements. As you can imagine, TEIN as with many other manufacturers has some proprietary methods for manufacturing shock absorbers, with several processes pioneered in-house.

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. So why not show them?!
