About Project

Do you require a fuel tank fitting with a specific design? FacFox can handle it! We specialize in manufacturing parts that meet your exact specifications. Here's a breakdown of the typical Al6061 hose barb fuel tank fitting we can produce:

• Smooth Cylindrical Base: The leftmost section of the fitting features a clean, thread-free cylindrical shape for seamless integration into your fuel tank system.

• Threaded Center Section: The middle section boasts a precisely threaded design, enabling secure connections with other components or allowing attachments to be screwed on.

• Extended Cylindrical Right Section: The threaded section transitions into a smooth cylindrical part that extends outward. This wider section offers additional support and can accommodate a larger hose connection.

• Functional Ridges: Two strategically placed, flat, circular ridges encircle the wider right section. These ridges serve a dual purpose: enhancing grip during installation and providing additional security to prevent unwanted loosening.

Solution

  • Step 1: Raw Material Selection. A solid block of Al6061 aluminum was first selected to meet the exact specifications of the desired fitting.

  • Step 2: Secure Clamping. The aluminum block was then securely clamped into the CNC turning machine’s chuck, ensuring stability and precision during the machining process.

  • Step 3: Computer-Aided Programming. A highly specialized computer program was developed to meticulously control the movements of the CNC machine’s cutting tools. This program ensured the creation of the precise features required for the fuel tank fitting.

  • Step 4: Rough Machining. The CNC machine’s cutting tool began to remove excess material from the aluminum block, gradually shaping it into the rough form of the fitting.

  • Step 5: Gradual Refinement. The cutting tool meticulously shaved away finer layers of material, bringing the fitting closer to its final dimensions with each pass.

  • Step 6: Thread Creation. For the designated section, a specialized threading tool was employed to create the precise threads required for secure connections.

  • Step 7: Quality Inspection. Throughout the machining process, the fitting underwent rigorous quality checks to ensure it met the specified tolerances and dimensional requirements.

  • Step 8: Surface Finishing. The client decided to cut the budget on this part as they had low requirements for surface finishing.

  • Step 9: Cleaning and Packaging. The completed Al6061 hose barb fuel tank fitting was then thoroughly cleaned and carefully packaged for safe delivery.
