The Final Assembly shop is the largest of them all – it takes up an area of 16 football fields and over half of our team members work here. During the assembly process a quiet conveyer keeps the vehicles moving, unless there is a safety or quality of work issuie. Ergonomically designed work areas help maximize productivity and reduce team members’ fatigue. Assembly hall can be divided into 4 parts: vehicle assembly begins on Trim line with installation of cabling and minor interior and exterior vehicle components, followed by assembly of chassis parts. The entire process is completed by mounting the front and rear glass, wheels, seats, and other necessary parts. Checking compliance with the operating fluids and fuel for the end of the assembly line almost 1.2 km long.
Each body spends at least 9 hours in the Paint shop. At first, In the paint shop it must be cleaned, degreased and covered with a phosphate layer. Then the plunge, into a special electro-coat bath, where the body is covered with an anticorrosive layer. The Next step is the robotic and manual sealing of all joints to prevent water from leaking inside the body. The actual painting process then follows: With the assistance of 60 robots, primer and color are sprayed on the bodies using fine mist nozzles. The last layer, is a top coat protective varnish. The car body is dried in an oven between processes to harden the layers and to increase their endurance. Hyundai uses only environmentally friendly water-based paint colors of 16 shades. You can choose from sixteen shades. All team members in the Paint shop wear protective antistatic overalls, to keep even the smallest particles of dust from comprising the quality of their work. Skilful diligent hands then glue the black tape on the doors, the whole body is thoroughly inspected, and then shipped to the Final Assembly.
The whole process starts in the Stamping shop. Large galvanized steel coils with a thickness of 0.7 mm are cut to specific lengths called blanks that make their way to the largest machines in the plant – 2 stamping presses, which squeeze the blanks into 17 different body panels for each model, using massive two part dies and over 5,400 tons of pressure. The body panels are then checked and sorted until they are needed in the Welding shop.
Welding shop is fully automated. Once the panels arrive here, an automated dance of more than three hundred robots begins. Robots pick up the body panels, complete, and weld together moving parts on the automated welding lines. The Skeleton of the body is spot-welded from a platform, with the sides and cross braces in a unique welding machine called the Main Buck. This which enables us to make up to 8 different car bodies simultaneously. All seams are perfectly welded by robots on the follow-up welding line. The Assembly of hinges, doors, hoods and tail gates follows, as does an inspection of the flawless quality and smoothness of the metal finish of the body.
Transmission shop, which is a rather specific department within the framework of the HMMC plant. Manual five- and six-gear transmissions that are made here are used not only in the Hyundai cars from our production but also in the Kia cars from our sister plant Kia Motors Slovakia in Žilina and also in the cars made in Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Rus in Sankt Petersburg. Steel castings, future gears and shafts, are milled on dozens of precision machines, as well as the aluminum castings of gear boxes. The Milled components of the gears are heated to nearly 900 °C and then cooled down in a special salt. Steel gets harder and becomes much more resilient after going through this process. Complete transmissions are tested and then handed over to our supplier Hyundai Mobis, where they are assembled together with engines made in Kia Motors Slovakia into one of following 4 modules: the front axle with engine and transmission, the rear axle, the front block of the cockpit and the front end of the car with radiator and headlights. The modules then travel through a covered connecting bridge to a concrete pit on the line in the Final Assembly shop.
