High Frequency Welding: Original Designs Remade

The development of our interior product range across the last four decades from Morris Minor to Mini, Triumph to VW, has been reliant upon our investment in our high frequency welding machine. This has allowed us to make a range of classic car interior upholstery in the original way to original patterns, and combined with our quality craftmanship and original materials has placed Newton Commercial as the industry leader in manufacturing reproduction automotive upholstery.


Using brass tooling, the high frequency welding machine embosses the desired pattern on the vinyl material used on panels and seat covers throughout the automotive industry. Used to make increasingly complex patterns in minutes, we have used this manufacturing process to develop our range of diamond embossed panels for the Transporter range to really show what the high frequency welding machine can do. Our interior panels are made in house with our boards being beam cut in our designated UK factory allowing us the best possible control over the quality of all interior products. 


High frequency welding became an integral manufacturing process to the classic car industry in the 1960's and 70's and allowed patterns such as those on the MKI Mini Cooper door panels to be made with greater accuracy. As high frequency welded patterns became more complex, this allowed British classic manufacturers to create a number of iconic designs from the Mini, to the MGB, to the Sprite and Midget ranges from panels to seat covers. Seat covers were made with a simulated stitch, meaning iconic designs could be made with less labour time.  


With the importance of this manufacturing process integral to our business ethos of quality automotive interior trim made to original specifications, we have invested in a brand new high frequency welding machine in our UK factory. Our original machine was installed in the factory in 1988 and has been manufacturing a wide range of products from seat covers to door panels over the last three decades. This machine still allows us to make a range of exclusive products such as our sunvisors, tool pouches and Lucas lamp covers across a number of our product ranges to name just a few iconic Newton Commercial interior products alongside our full range of seat covers and interior panels.

Our new high frequency welding machine allows us to use the expertise of our skilled machine operators with a brand new piece of kit that is fully programmable, and has two trays to load from both sides of the machine for greater efficiency. We can use the same brass tooling that we have invested in over the last 30 years to create the same great embossed interior products to the same quality synonymous with the Newton Commercial name. 

The high frequency welding machine is the workhorse of our UK factory providing embossed parts for a range of original style reproduction parts. 


Newton Commercial's investment in brand new machinery is an important part of our commitment to continue to provide original style classic car upholstery for a range of British and European classics and compliments our work with British Motor Heritage making sure that original style parts are available for a variety of British, European and US car markets. Using our expertise and knowledge in the classic car industry, our customers trust us to maintain our high quality level across all our interior products. We export all of our products worldwide using fast reliable shipping services at competitive prices.
