Career Profiles: Machinists & Toolmakers
Producing millions of suspension assemblies with little to no part-to-part variation requires some of the most complex tooling in the industry.
Using to state-of-the-art equipment, our machinists and toolmakers build precision tooling for our high-speed stamping presses and automated manufacturing units. A typical manufacturing unit has up to 250 pieces of tooling, and a single piece of tooling can have up to 300 subcomponents. Our Tooling Operations group can design and build a set of tooling for one manufacturing unit in as little as 26 days.
