Unit Axle is where front and rear suspension parts are manufactured for some of our most iconic cars. The parts go through welding, painting and then finally bush pressing before shipment to vehicle assembly. It’s a loud, buzzing atmosphere where you’ll receive all the training you need to operate at the level and pace required to keep our lines moving smoothly.
Suspension parts are manually loaded with child parts prior to automatically being welded together by a robotic MIG welding process. They are then fed into an ED paint line, going through an automatic dipping process into a series of tanks that provide cleaning, etching, rust protection and a final paint coating which is then cured in an oven. Once the parts leave the paint process, they are automatically sorted into stillages and move on to bush pressing when required, and then into stores.
You could be working on any part of this process, from loading child parts into jigs, quality checking both in and off line, material handling and stock control, training other staff and carrying out Total Production Maintenance (TPM) tasks to keep our processes at the top of their game.
