Sourcing Agent for the Aftermarket Automotive Industry
|Sun Fast provides offshore sourcing for the aftermarket automotive industry.|
Speed to market is also crucial when introducing new aftermarket components. Having new products for the latest model-year vehicles available before the competition can truly be make-it-or-break-it in this industry. Because they often replace the functionality of OEM parts, aftermarket automotive components must not only match the automaker’s specifications, but also the performance-enhancement needs of the end user. As such, quality manufacturing is critical.

Product: Door hinges
Application: Replacement parts for trucks and SUVs
Material: Ductile steel
Process: Metal casting
Solution: Previously, the customer’s hinges were being fabricated by laser cut steel plates and welding the components together, a costly and time-consuming process. Sun Fast proposed making the entire assembly from a one-piece cast design, using ductile steel materials.
Redesigning the parts for casting reduced the fabrication costs by 30%. Switching the material to a ductile steel offered a higher yield strength for greater durability.
