Inteva Products Receives Top Innovation Award for Revolutionary Stitching Process

Inteva Products, LLC, a leading global Tier One automotive supplier of
engineered components and systems, received the top prize in the 2018
Innovation Awards presented by the European Association of Automotive
Suppliers (CLEPA) at The Hague, Netherlands, on June 13.

Inteva was recognized for its new real-time scanning process for the
robotic stitching of automotive interiors. This innovative technology
will be used on instrument panels for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and
GMC Sierra pickup trucks.

The new process enables “live” scanning and immediate adjustments to the
program path of robotic stitching equipment as a component is being
stitched. This approach aligns leading-edge advances in the use of
lasers in automotive manufacturing with Inteva’s unique robotic
stitching technologies. The advancement reduces the average cycle time
of a stitched surface by approximately 20-30%.

The 2018 CLEPA Innovation Awards, organized in cooperation with
Deloitte, celebrate automotive excellence in the categories of
Environment, Safety, Connectivity & Automation and Cooperation. Inteva
was recognized in the “Cooperation” category with its customer General

“We are proud to receive this recognition,” said Inteva Products CEO and
President Lon Offenbacher. “The real-time scanning innovation was a true
collaborative effort between the talented women and men of Inteva and
our customer General Motors, so we are especially honored to be
recognized in the Cooperation category.”
