HEADREST STAYS FOR AUTOMOTIVE SEATING THAT OFFER A THIN, PRECISE SOLUTION

Our headrest stays offer a thin, precision cut solution with in house welding and formed notching. Through our patented cold-forming and notching process, we are able to manufacture versatile headrest solutions for any application.

Seating requirements continue to change with new safety regulations and the drive to reduce vehicle weight.  Our process is geared to minimize mass while maintaining safety critical dimensions and provide the customer with the flexibility to add multiple features to meet their specific design constraints. Our innovative manufacturing process expands your options for a more flexible seating design.

Product Features

Cut to Length

  • Allow tube purchase in master length (6m)
  • Guillotine or laser cut
  • In line process of end form

Cold Formed Notches

  • A proprietary processes of creating the flats (notches) solely by forming material rather than removing the material by broaching.
  • The forming allows the primary strength of the tube to remain.
  • Current production products utilizing this process range in wall thickness from 2.3mm down to 1.0mm with OD’s of 12 to 14mm. Up to 50% weight savings.

Advanced Tubing Technology
