For customers in the automotive industry, at Whitehall Industries we specialize in the production of custom sunroof tracks for use in numerous vehicles. In order to produce these parts to customer specifications, our experts designed and built machinery specifically for this manufacturing process utilizing Lean Manufacturing and cellular production methods. Advanced CNC machining centers featuring 3, 4, and 5 axis capability are utilized to machine extruded aluminum to the required profile. A variety of bending techniques including hydraulic stretch bending allowing us to achieve bend profile tolerances 1.5mm and less and axial straightness to 1.0mm. The tightest tolerance of ±0.2mm was met during production. The tracks were subjected to an anodizing treatment for a durable and cost effective high performance finish. Comprehensive customer-specific inspection procedures were also carried out for ensured accuracy and quality.

Measurements of completed tracks are 700mm to 1000mm in length, 100mm in width, and vary in height from 20mm to 500mm. We can handle projects with very high volume requirements, manufacturing over 400,000 parts annually in some cases. Tracks are packaged and shipped from our facilities in Michigan, Kentucky and Mexico to locations around the world. At Whitehall we are dedicated to quality, upholding the requirements our ISO 9001:2000 and TS 16949 certifications.
