LAUNIK is a leading supplier of automated solutions for the production of shock absorbers, having worked with the sector's leading manufacturers for decades.
LAU-NIK is a supplier of hinge and retainer assembly cells that meet the highest cycle time and OEE requirements
When the assembly operations or the customer so require, all the processes are integrated automatically on palletised lines.
In partnership with one of the sectors’ TIER 1 manufacturers, LAU-NIK supplies steering column tube forming, punching and welding machines. Precision, finish and mechanical performance are essential in a vehicle safety system like the steering system.
Both comprehensively on the assembly line and individually, LAU-NIK provides all automatic solutions involved in the manufacture of the tube and the structural parts, using technologies like pressing, roll closing, welding, measuring, vision and marking.
The mounting of ball joints on the suspension supports or links is done automatically on LAU-NIK machines, along with all the necessary accessories and operations such as the application of grease, torque test and placement of protection bellows.
The checking of the clutch's operating parameters is done automatically on machines developed by LAU-NIK for the sector's different manufacturers.
The machines developed especially for clutch fatigue tests are another of the developments carried out by LAU-NIK for the automotive sector’s TIER 1 manufacturers.
The machining and grinding of engine parts such as the camshaft sleeve bearings is done at very high speed and automatically on LAU-NIK machines, always complying with the strictest tolerances.
The deep drilling of engine injection components (Common-rail) is carried out at a very high speed and automatically on LAU-NIK machines, always complying with the strictest tolerances.
LAUNIK provides the most complete shock absorber tube manufacturing lines for the simplest (mono-tube) and the most complex (electronic) shock absorbers.
Both comprehensively on the assembly line and individually, LAUNIK carries out all the operations involved in the manufacture of the shock absorber tube, including the cutting, shrinking, chamfering and facing, punching, CNC machining, cap setting, welding (resistance or MAG) and marking (rolling, laser and micro-percussion)
Once the stem chrome plating and grinding operations have been performed, LAUNIK provides automated solutions for the final finishing of the stem prior to its integration into the assembly process, such as drilling, threading, broaching, checking and marking.
LAUNIK provides the most complete assembly lines for all shock absorber components, including the simplest (mono-tube) and the most complex (electronic) shock-absorbers.
Both comprehensively on the assembly line and individually, LAUNIK carries out all the operations involved in the complete assembly of the shock absorber, using technologies like pressing, flanging, handling and feeding of components, measuring, vision and marking.
Once the shock absorber has been assembled, LAUNIK carries out the gas loading and testing (hydraulic or linear-motor) operations with precision and reliability in order to ensure optimal operation within the highest quality standards.
LAU-NIK is also a supplier of automated suspension link and arm welding cells, for both resistance and arc welding technologies.
