Durkopp Adler - Docu Seam System

  • Docu seam systems are quality assurance systems designed for use on safety relevant seams, mainly in the automotive/airbag section.
  • This technology is used where the seam must meet precisely stipulated parameters. For Example, perfect execution of the nominal breakage point on the reference seam on a car seat from where the side airbag unfolds in the event of a serious incident.
  • It is important in these seams to be of perfect parameters. In case of a seat side airbag, should not be too resistant as this will prevent the side airbag from expanding and unfolding; on the other hand the seam must have a minimum strength so that it does not tear open unexpected during normal use.
  • We use top-of-the-class Durkopp Adler 550-867 for safe and documented sewing of airbag tearing seams.

Manufactured in Britain by a British company

‘Buying British’ isn’t about blind patriotism, It goes above and beyond supporting British manufacturing. When you think of British manufacturing, the first word that springs to mind is ‘quality’.

Did you know? - Despite the decline since the 1970s, when manufacturing contributed 25% of UK GDP, the UK is currently the ninth largest manufacturing nation in the world.
