Mitsubishi Motors to install the biggest stamping in PH

Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) is set to install the country’s first-ever 2,000 ton stamping machine which can produce bulky parts such as vehicle body side outer panel, roof panel, floor panel, and door panel among others.

This is in line with the operation of MMPC’s stamping plant facility starting January 2018. The operation of stamping facility will not only enable MMPC to produce its own metal stamped parts but will also help it comply with the Comprehensive Automotive Resurgence Strategy (CARS) program’s requirement to manufacture at least 50% of the assembly weight.

The operation of the new stamping shop will also generate hundreds of direct and indirect jobs and also cut down the delivery lead time of metal stamped parts.

“For more than half a century that the company has been producing quality vehicles, this is the first time that MMPC will have its own stamping facility,” Mr. Rolando Francisco, MMPC vice president for Production Engineering Department, said.

As part of this new technology, MMPC sent some of its engineers to Mitsubishi Motors Corporation Japan (MMC) to undergo training as it gears to start the operations of its newly constructed stamping shop.

Here they learned about the principle of stamping, the different types of stamping processes, machine operation and maintenance, and repair procedures.
