The company TREVES CZ s.r.o. was founded in the Czech Republic in the autumn of 2016. The company’s plant is located in Přestanov near Teplice, close to the D8 motorway. The convenient location and easy accessibility of the plant are essential for maximum flexibility to provide the best services to our customers.
The production programme of TREVES CZ s.r.o. includes the production of carpets and floor parts for cars of the world's major vehicle manufacturers. In 2017, the company expects to employ about 100 employees, and this number will increase in the coming years. The most important condition for the production of high quality at the TREVES CZ s.r.o plant is the modern technical equipment at a world-class level. The technologies used in TREVES CZ s.r.o will mostly be thermoforming and foaming.
TREVES CZ s.r.o., based in Přestanov, manufactures car floor carpets for major global automobile manufacturers. Car carpet in vehicles plays not only an aesthetic role, but also significantly contributes to cabin soundproofing and thermal comfort inside the car. That is why extraordinary emphasis is put on the quality of work.
We use so-called thermoforming methods on fully automated production machines to produce carpets. Thermoforming takes place under the influence of heat from contact heating, IR heating and subsequent pressure of 50t presses in order to create the basic shape of carpets. During this activity, the operator manipulates the control panel throughout the process and rolls materials.
The next step in the production of carpets is high-frequency welding (HF welding), which is high-frequency vibration under pressure from the press to weld the footrest to the carpet. During this operation, the operator handles the carpet and PVC with the footrest.
The next process is polyurethane (PU) foaming of the bottom of the carpet. This process is carried out on the Frimo automatic carousel sponge line. The operator's activity is: after the spraying of the separator, the moulded carpet is placed into a mould where, after the ABB robot is closed, the PU mixture is sprayed, which spouts the required shape on the rotating platform at the specified time. The operator then removes the finished part and performs mould cleaning.
The last step in the manufacturing process at TREVES CZ, s.r.o. is the WaterJet – cutting carpets through a high-pressure production beam into the final shape. This process is again fully automated, with two independent ABB robots in a closed space with a 3000 bar water jet cutting the final shape of car carpets. The operator places a part of the carpet in moulds that automatically rotate 180° and enter the WaterJet production area.
The final production process is attaching the footrest to the adhesive machine and 100% checking of the products. Upon completion, the finished part of the carpet is loaded into the rack/container for delivery to the customer.
