Tools and fixtures, built by FRIMO Shanghai or imported from other FRIMO locations, can be tested and commissioned before the shipment to the customer.
Besides, customer can produce the sample parts for different purposes. Pre-serial part production, improvement/ validation cycles and even low volume serial production can be made at FRIMO Shanghai. This will be, compared to the trails at the customers own plant, much more efficient. Because the interruption of the production line at customer will be very costly. Especially for those completely new design, when several rounds optimization are required, the savings will be considerable. Furthermore, with the above lab machines, FRIMO can also make prototype tools and parts for customers, which are more and more used by Chinese local OEMs to assure the fit and finish of their development and design.
With the increasing demand of models developed in China, the demand for prototype tools for automotive interiors are growing accordingly. The growth comes from both international OEMs and local OEMs. The international OEMs try to develop more models to meet the expectations of Chinese consumers with different features than the ones launched in other markets which results in more prototype requirements for validation and testing. For the local OEMs, they require more prototype tools than before to make the design verification to avoid call-backs as much as possible. To meet the demand, FRIMO decided to build up more capacity in the TechCenter. The new Infrared welding machine will be installed in 2019 Sep.
With the fully equipped TechCenter, FRIMO Shanghai can offer better service and support to its customers, which is the key for our success in the biggest automotive market in the world. The TechCenter also demonstrated the commitment of the FRIMO Group to China.
