Dukane announces the opening of its New Automotive Technical Center in Wixom, Michigan. Our new facility has allowed us to more than double the size of our applications area and expand our capabilities to our customers with local technical support for their vibration, ultrasonic, spin welding and heat staking needs.
The Automotive Technical center exists to support the automotive industry in North America and around the world. We provide, plastic assembly feasibility, weld joint design for appropriate processes, prototype tooling, prototype part runs, pre-production part runs, final check out and run-off of production tools and much more.
We have installed the newest ultrasonic welder technology available in our demonstration room with additional space to house customer machines. This will allow automotive engineers to perform tooling check out and validation on their equipment. Our laboratory welders are now networked directly to our global applications lab using Dukane’s new remote iQ explorer software. Our new computer network has also made it possible to be tied directly to our CAD system at Dukane’s headquarters in St. Charles, IL.
The new facility has a technical training room allowing us to accommodate local seminars and space is
available for future growth.
