Telsonic and China Tools Partnership Drives Success on Binnacle Moulding Assembly

The buoyant automotive market in the UK means that there is always a new model or a facelift version of an existing model under way. This is of course good news for the industry as a whole, but it is also good for the companies supplying the technology and manufacturing solutions needed by the OEM’s and Tier 1 suppliers to produce the wide range of components. Telsonic UK has a strong foothold within the UK automotive sector and a recent collaborative project with China Tools, resulted in the company applying its ultrasonic welding technology to components for the new Nissan Infinity. 

The components for this application are the 3 items that make up the moulded binnacle which fits under the steering wheel on the vehicle and provides adjustability for steering wheel height. The components are produced in 2 stages with the first step being the welding of a sub-assembly comprising of fabric and a retainer moulding.
