IR welding is a relatively new technique that is used to assemble plastic components. Yanfeng Automotive Interiors, the world’s leading supplier of instrument panels and cockpit systems, door panels, floor consoles and overhead consoles, has recently adopted this technique in its facility in Louisville, KY, USA, to join parts of the defroster grille of the Ford Escape vehicle.

Yanfeng Automotive Interiors, headquartered in Shanghai, has more than 90 manufacturing and technical centers in 17 countries and employs over 28,000 people globally. The company has made it its mission to continuously innovate and leverage its capabilities to enhance its position as a trendsetter in the global automotive industry.
