Vina Automotive AirCon Company makes technical improvements and increases production efficiency
In recent years, technical initiatives and improvements have been going strong at the company and many projects have been applied to production, helping to reduce costs.
The project that stood out was Improving PU Glue process which saved more than VND1 billion by Mr. Nguyen Xuan Hung, its Quality Control Lead. “In floor carpet production, the factory used black FE Foam, which cost more and used more storage area, and using the PU Glue spray to seal the wood and felt surfaces caused waste. So I suggested to use white FE Foam (which is used to make all other products at the factory) and to just spray the glue around the contour and the 2 central lines of the surface, which proved to cut the production costs, yet ensuring product quality,” shared Mr. Hung.

During production, noticing that the large-sized Non-woven materials used to produce the Kia KA4's floor carpet still have unusable residue after production, Mr. Nguyen Van Huy, the company's R&D Head proposed to change the material size from 1,800x3,250mm to 1,680x3,150mm, saving nearly VND107 million, equivalent to 1,220 floor carpets in 2022.
“Designing jig for Kia Carnival AVN update system” was also one of the company's representative projects. Mr. Nguyen Van Linh, the Electronic Components Lead said, "The software update spot for Kia Carnival AVN shares the control screen with the Quality Department, causing inadequacies for both teams' work. Therefore, I have built the jig for Kia Carnival AVN update system separate from the quality control system for more convenient control, increasing activeness in production, increasing productivity and output by 50%.
In the first 4 months of 2023, the company had made 18 projects to apply in actual production, saving nearly VND100 million in cost of materials, production and storage. Mr. Pham Tuan Sinh, the Company Director said, "The Board Directors always encourages employees to do research and come up with their own initiatives in the working process to save more money, improve productivity, product quality and increase production and business efficiency to step by step we can touch the goal of becoming the leading manufacturer of air conditioners, floor carpets, and head linings for passenger cars in Vietnam."
