  1. 1
    Radiators production

    The basic technology step in the production of radiators is stamping of panels from steel sheets of drawing grades. By stamping, two preforms are formed while are later in the technology flow welded together into one panel with spot welds and subsequently they are closed with circumferential seam welds. It is possible to weld convectors on the panels that increase the thermal – transfer area. Finally, by means of spot resistance welds the connecting fittings are welded on radiators. Thus, radiators make up one compact whole. Each produced radiator undergoes a pressure test that guarantees its ability to fulfill its function flawlessly. Dimension inspections and processing quality inspections are continuously performed on products.
