  • 1. 1 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered WEBER MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGIES INC. Tooling for Automotive Interiors

2. 2 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered COMPANY OVERVIEW Founded in 1962, Weber Manufacturing Technologies Inc. is a leading manufacturer of precision tooling for Automotive, Aerospace, and Home/Building Products. Located in Midland, Ontario, Weber offers high quality tooling in nickel, steel, invar and aluminum, and precision CNC machined aluminum parts. Over the last 15 years, Weber has developed nickel shell tooling using the Nickel Vapor Deposition (NVD) process. This process is also used for capturing fine surface detail, such as leather and wood grains, and authentically replicating them into hard tools. 135 employees, 135,000 sq. ft. facility On-site CAD Design capable (UGS, CATIA) Certified ISO 9001:2008 Canadian Controlled Goods Program registered Modern simultaneous 5-Axis CNC machining centers Full complement of CNC contour mills, gun-drills, vertical mills, and EDM machines 3. 3 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered PLANTS OVERVIEW HEAD OFFICE, MOLD MANUFACTURING, AND NICKEL VAPOUR DEPOSTION PLANT ALL LOCATED AT MIDLAND, ONTARIO, CANADA 4. 4 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered 1962 Established Weber Manufacturing (Windsor) Limited 1967 Relocated to a new building in Midland, Ontario Established the Weber Tool & Mold Division 1989 Established the Nickel Tooling Technology (NTT) Division 1991 Sold our first Nickel Shell 1998 Built and tested NVD Pilot Plant 1999 Designed and Built Large Scale NVD Plant 2000 Commissioned the NVD Nickel Division 2001 Produced our first Nickel Shell in February 2004 Company purchased by American Capital Strategies and TMB Industries 2007 Company purchased by Zynik Capital Corporation COMPANY HISTORY 5. 5 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered Automotive Exterior Automotive Interior Home & Building Key Market Areas Aerospace Key Market Areas 6. 6 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered QUALITY CERTIFICATIONS ISO 9001:2008 certified Boeing Certified Supplier Registered with Canadian Controlled Goods Program - Registration No. 22921 CWB W47.1, W59 Welding certificates 7. 7 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered ISO 9001:2008 Certified 2 Computer Controlled 5-axis CMMs 3 Full Time CMM Operator/Inspectors Full Certification of Models, Tooling Aids, Molds & Finished Parts to Math Data Steel Hardness Check on Incoming Blocks Diffracto Class-A Surface Quality Verification Detailed Inspection Reports sent to Customer Mold Completion Check List QUALITY ASSURANCE 8. 8 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered WEBER MACHINE CAPACITY 6 5-Axis CNC Mills 2 4-Axis CNC Mills 3 Vertical Mills 3 Tarus CNC Gun Drills 4 Horizontal CNC Boring Mills 5 Droop & Rein 3-Axis CNC Mills 2 EDM Machines 3 Various Detail Machines 2 Vertical Presses 2 CMM Measuring Machines Weber has a total of 32 large CNC machines; Yag Laser Welder Thermal Spray Tig & Mig Welder ARC Welder Aluminum Oxide, Glass bead and sand blasting.

It is infinitely re-usable for duplicate nickel shells Carbon monoxide given off by the reaction is collected and reused in a closed loop system. NVD DEPOSITION PROCESS 14. 14 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered Electroformed Nickel Shell NVD Nickel Shell 1. 0.25mm per 20 hr growth rate 2. Shell thickness is not uniform during growth 3. Inherent residual stresses 4. Cavities made simultaneously from different mandrels 5. Problematic variation - cavity to cavity 6. Replace damaged shell in 12+ weeks 7. Delaminating risk as shells are created in multiple grinding and growth steps 8. Sulfates contamination from electroplating bath = difficult welding + de-lamination risk 1. 0.25mm per 1 hr deposition rate 2. Uniform thickness during growth 3. Negligible residual stress 4. Cavities made sequentially from the same mandrel 5. Little variation from cavity to cavity 6. Replace damaged shell in 3 weeks 7. Full shell thickness is deposited in one step with growth being very uniform. 8. 0.999 pure Ni weldable and no de- lamination 9. No environmental impact (closed system) COMPETITIVE PROCESS COMPARISON 15. 15 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered NICKEL VAPOUR DEPOSITION The re-usable deposition mandrel is placed in the NVD chamber and heated to approximately 180C. Nickel is deposited onto the mandrel at a rate of 0.010in (0.25 mm)/hr of thickness regardless of size Mandrel must be cleaned and prepared prior to each deposition 16. 16 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered AUTOMOTIVE INTERIOR NICKEL TOOLING 17. 17 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered CUSTOMERS OEM, TIER 1 & TIER 2 18. 18 ISO 9001 : 2008 Registered IN HOUSE MASTERING & PATTERN SHOP In-house Manufacturing of Wrapped Master Models.
