At our European head office in Ede in the Netherlands, we manufacture precision profiles in large quantities. During the coming year, we will be roll forming more than 1.5 million high quality, customer-specific tubes for the global automotive industry. These special thin-walled tubes are used in luggage cover systems and in truck interior systems. These high precision tube profiles ensure easy extension and retraction of the cover. In addition, the high precision tube profiles are used in automatic sun blinds for various car manufacturers, such as Audi, Volkswagen, Porsche, Renault, Hyundai,and Kia.

Production process fully equipped for the automotive industry

Innovation, high quality, tight tolerances, flawless surfaces, and just-in-time deliveries are essential in the automotive market. Hadley is continuously innovating in partnership with its automotive customers. Thanks to this close working relationship, we can cater to the customer-specific requirements of engineers, also with regard to the tube profiles for our automotive customers.

Our fully automated roll forming lines for the automotive industry produce the following in-line:

  • Extremely straight tubes cut to the required length with a 100% check on straightness and length;
  • The required perforations;
  • Very clean products that are ready for immediate processing;
  • Thin-walled material thickness of 0.4 mm to 2 mm;
  • Perfect size monitoring with very tight tolerances;
  • Cutting of the tube profiles, making deburring unnecessary.
