KROS Automotive manufactures in its modern facility with high-tech investments required by the sector in order to meet ever-increasing customer expectations. The main production processes:
RUBBER EXTRUSION AND FORMING: Single or multi-ply, braided or non-braided rubber hoses are produced in extrusion lines using state-of-the-art technology and automation. The hoses, which are shaped according to different geometric structures, are subjected to vulcanization process in autoclaves with process automation. The extrusion lines equipped with high technology and automation produce single or multi-layered, braided or non-braided hoses. Having formed to match various geometrical structures, hoses undergo the vulcanization process in the autoclaves driven with process automation.
POLYAMIDE EXTRUSION AND FORMING: Flat/formed, hard/soft polyamide pipes used in various fluid transfer systems on automobiles are produced in extrusion lines guided by automatic control systems. Special molding methods are shaped. The production of straight/formed, hard/soft polyamide pipes used in the various fluid transfer systems of an automobile are carried out in the extrusion lines controlled with automatic control systems. They are shaped with special molding methods.
METAL PIPE FORMING: Steel and aluminum pipes of various sizes are shaped by means of fully and semi-automatic bending machines, spot, gas welding and brazing processes are carried out in the high-tech machine park. Steel and aluminum pipes in various sizes are formed by full and semi-automatic presses, tack welding, gas metal arc welding and brazing processes are handled in our high technology equipment pool.
ASSEMBLY:Rubber hoses, polyamide and steel pipes produced in our company are assembled together with other purchasing parts to serve in fluid transmission on the vehicle. The products coming out of the assembly lines are tested on special tables equipped with digital cameras for leak tightness and flow control to guarantee their function.Rubber hoses, polyamide and steel pipes produced in our company are assembled such that they will play their parts in fluid transfer on the vehicle, together with other procurement parts. The functionalities of the products from assembly lines are guaranteed by testing them on special benches equipped with digital camcorders for sealing and flow controls.
Due to the function it will perform on the vehicle, the assembly and testing processes of products with special cleaning criteria are carried out in a special production environment completely isolated from other production processes, where the amount of particles suspended in the air, temperature, humidity and pressure are kept under constant control. In this special production area, an electrostatic charge discharge (ESD) feature is also provided to prevent damage to materials sensitive to electrostatic charges.
The assembly and test processes of the products which must satisfy the special cleaning criteria, as required by their functions on the vehicle, are carried out in special production environment, completely isolated from other production processes, where airborne particle amounts, heat, moisture and pressure are constantly under control. In this special production area, electrostatic discharge (ESD) feature is provided in order to prevent damages on the materials which are sensitive to electrostatic charges.
POLYURETHANE COATING: Special type of high-tech polyurethane coating with very special geometry, defined in customer drawings, with small weight but large surface area.Special type high-technology polyurethane coating, having very special geometry, lightweight but large surface area, defined in the customers' pictures is carried out.
