As a Tier 1 and OEM supplier, our project management teams work closely with our automotive customers developing and manufacturing effective solutions that fulfil the requirements of each specific application.
We design and manufacture innovative technical components that support both weight reduction and cost reduction initiatives, and use multiple materials for functionality and performance benefits. Our products replace metal carriers with recyclable plastic designs.
We produce and supply a range of technical gaskets for Under Bonnet, Glass and Roof applications designed for sealing and noise reduction, while at the same time enhancing appearance.
COBA manufactures components for both static and dynamic applications, with a range of flock tapes and slip coatings.
COBA’s key strength is that we own the entire process. Through vertical integration, we support all phases inhouse from design and prototype, ultimately through to production and final assembly. Laser technology enables us to work to really tight tolerances.
We have both injection moulding and over-moulding equipment for more complicated shapes and finished assemblies, as well as our own powerful design, engineering and testing laboratories and FEA resources.
We offer a range of straight cut, three sided and four sided gaskets that give both sealing functionality and visual appearance improvements. The most common applications are:
Our in-house over-moulding capability allows us to meet the needs of ever increasing complex shapes. The continuing popularity and increasing size of full glass roofs has enhanced the need for efficient manufacturing processes and cost effective components.
Three and four sided gaskets can be formed via welding or over-moulding processes. The gaskets can be manufactured with stabilising cords and adhesive tapes applied. A range of flock tapes and slip coatings are available for dynamic applications such as moving glass or tailgate areas.
COBA manufactures a range of gaskets via extrusion and moulding techniques, which form part of the roof rail/roof ditch assembly. We can supply gaskets with over-moulded end features to produce one finished component, effectively reducing the BOM and assembly times. Gaskets can also be supplied with punched or laser cut assembly features. The gaskets are designed to offer sealing functionality while helping to create visually appealing lines to the roof rail/roof ditch area.
COBA manufactures a range of under bonnet seals designed to fit to the front grill moulding, plenum moulding and engine cooling systems. We offer FEA analysis to prove out the product’s design, functionality, deflection force requirements and compression set. Multiple materials can be used along with non-stick coatings.
We manufacture a range of fully recyclable, dynamically performing weather seals with either flock taped or slip coating materials. The seals can be made with up to 3 materials to suit the customer’s application and can be offered with over-moulding features. The seals are designed with passenger comfort in mind to reduce noise whilst sealing against water ingress.
COBA supplies a range of products that are used in arm rest, load floor and sunblind applications. Our injection moulding and over-moulding capabilities also enables us to produce bespoke components, such as gap fillers, fixation pins, glass holders and brackets. A range of adhesive tapes and coatings can be added to these products if required.
