6-axis CNC milling machine with stitching unit – high throughput, measurable precision – perfect defined weakening lines
The 6-axis CNC stitching machine from HG GRIMME SysTech has been developed specifically for the automotive industry and optimised for producing defined weakening lines for airbags. Thanks to the innovative stitching method and the high-speed processing, the CNC milling machine allows rapid manufacturing while still maintaining a high level of precision and safety and a low level of machine wear and tear. The perfect defined weakening lines in instrumental panel dashboards and steering wheels provide the very best protection for passengers. With our many years of experience in the automotive sector, we can meet any customer specification and produce CNC machining centres for high-quality products used in the car industry.
Airbag components: Defined weakening lines with a high-speed process
We developed the 6-axis HSC CNC stitching machine specifically for the automotive industry and to meet the high quality standard that the car manufacturers demand for airbags. The CNC machine delivers very short cycle times with measurable, outstanding milling results. It mills using a high-speed process without compromising on the safety of the airbag.
Secure stitching thanks to precise milling of weakening lines for airbag components
The precise milling of invisible weakening lines in the stitching process weakens the material to a precisely defined residual wall thickness. The milled plastic component, such as the instrumental panel – the IP dashboard – in the front section of the car, weakened sections open precisely at the defined weakened point when a predetermined pressure is applied to the airbag. The airbag explodes.
Faster production with low wear on the machine
The 6-axis CNC milling machine in combination with the stitching unit and the customised milling tool make it possible to weaken the material in a precise and measurable way during the stitching process to produce different thicknesses on a single component. The sixth axis performs the high-speed stitching. This ensures there is a low level of wear on the machine and speeds up production at the same time. This high-speed process results in rapid cycle times without having to make any compromises on safety.
Perfect defined weakening lines for airbags on the IP dashboard or steering wheel
The CNC milling machine makes it possible to quickly manufacture high-quality products so that airbags can be fitted safely and securely. For example, instrumental panels in front of the passenger or steering wheels are equipped with perfect defined weakening lines for deploying the airbag. The 6-axis HSC CNC stitching machine satisfies all the requirements of the automotive industry, thus guaranteeing passenger safety.
