Such small parts require great detail, which this machine can do consistently. Fortunately we were able to showcase a lot of our machinery and even some prototypes.

Here, threads being cut for piston valve assembly.

In fact, there are some machines developed specifically by TEIN engineers solely for our own use. As you can imagine, TEIN as with many other manufacturers has some proprietary methods for manufacturing shock absorbers, with several processes pioneered in-house. The second floor of our factory handles our surface coating stages.

So why not show them?! But, due to bad weather the event was canceled. Other than steel components, we also use aluminum alloys.

We have many lathes to handle different processes, such as piston rod machining. The day before was to be a trip to Fuji Speedway. Semi finished piston rods that have just been gun drilled for damping adjustable suspension dsplrt. It also runs nearly non-stop!!! Our Materials Yard, where we keep inventory of parts to prepare for manufacturing our suspension.

Press Releases

Second, consumers are just as interested in seeing how their products are made. So, to show that to the public may be detrimental to us since we do not want such information to be released to the public. A recent addition dspory our factory is this Laser Cutting Machine, capable of cutting steel up to 16mm thick using a carbon dioxide laser beam. Vital for our piston shafts is our high-resolution inspection machine. So many people wanted to purchase TEIN suspension kits right away!!!


This is information that can reach another suspension manufacturer!!! First, we shot blast our steel components. After dsoprt assembly, kits are packaged up and shipped out!

Each and every piston shaft is inspected. We use tubing of various sizes to make damper shell cases to lower brackets for full-length adjustable dampers. Some of our components are machined from billet blanks, which we cut from larger bar stock, using various grades of steel and aluminum depending on the product requirements. We were hoping our tour would make up for that missed event!

It is capable of detecting even the slightest flaw on the piston shaft surface. This entry was posted by Paul P. I got to speak with several of them and they were all impressed with our manufacturing.

The tour went faster than expected, and considering the factory was in full swing when we had it, it was difficult to hang around the machinery for very long with TEIN staff trying to navigate around us.

We had just over 40 guests for our tour on January 19th.

Lower brackets, after any necessary welding, go through shot blasting prior to any surface coatings. You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.


We hope to continue doing tours for guests each year. A sampling of some of the suspension components our lathes can process, from prototype to finished product. If defects are found, we must discard the shaft. For aluminum damper shell cases, we use an A grade extruded tube, however. A series of some of our many lathes used to machine many types of our suspension components. Still a few more steps to being completed sub assemblies.

This allows our powdercoatings to adhere better to the steel bodies. We felt bad for our guests, though. So it sounded like a prime opportunity to have TEIN show the public our factory. Both comments and pings are currently closed. Again, we have to limit what we can show the public. Quite a fast and efficient process! These steel pucks will end up becoming our pillowball cases for strut type upper mounts.

We stock three grades of aluminum billets, each one to be maggazine depending on the application and use. Overall, it looked to be a fun experience for our guests.

We even had to speed through some demonstrations by factory staff. Aluminum billets are cut into smaller billet blanks using either our band saw or circular saw.
