Our Teublitz storage facility houses more than 13,000 tools for producing spare parts for more than 250 different series. We are a full-range manufacturer of all kinds of spare parts. Thanks to our rapid set-up concepts and optimum cycle times, we can handle the increasing variety of spare parts and you can rely on us to deliver the best possible products and service.
Our in-house relocation and integration team is able to integrate the most complex of parts into our existing universal cells. Depending on the age of the parts and the quantities involved, these can be produced by hand or with semi-automated or fully automated systems.
LÄPPLE AUTOMOTIVE produces after-sales service and original spare parts on its modern and flexible manufacturing cells. Thanks to their special design, a wide variety of parts and assemblies can be integrated into these systems. The major advantage of the state-of-the-art unicells is that even complex parts can be produced within the tiniest amount of space. Not only that, but they are able to replicate all the automated processes used in series production. The systems can be easily expanded with additional technologies to ensure that this production concept is also optimally equipped for the future.
And when it comes to quality, our spare parts production is in no way inferior to series production either. Once the body-in-white has been produced, the after-sales service parts are – where required – painted in the in-house CDP system, sealed and then packaged in original cartons or special containers according to the customer's requirements.
At our Classic Centre, we focus in particular on producing obsolete spare body parts for classic and modern classic cars, such as wings, bonnet panels and doors.
Our Classic Centre has been specially configured and carefully laid out, enabling us to accommodate very small quantities where these are required by customers. These body assemblies are produced by hand – e.g. using large manual spot welding guns and manual joining methods such as flanging or soldering. In order to produce these parts for classic car enthusiasts, our experts draw on their extensive know-how and many years of experience. Once the spare parts have been produced, cataphoretic dip painting once again takes place. They are then placed inside the original spare parts packaging and sent directly to our customer's spare parts warehouse.
The LÄPPLE AUTOMOTIVE Classic Centre produces more than 1000 items with a strong tradition; in fact, the oldest spare part is intended for a vehicle built in 1954.
To ensure that our aftermarket parts meet the same high standard of quality as our other products and that the customer's quality requirements are captured quickly whenever a new product is added, LÄPPLE AUTOMOTIVE relies, as elsewhere, on an in-house laboratory with state-of-the-art measuring techniques.
To assure the quality of our products, we use various measuring methods and laboratory tests such as the examination of laser welding seams and the micrograph analysis of clinch points.
