Custom Machined Engine End Cap Assembly for the Transportation Industry

Engine End Cap Assembly
Engine End Cap Assembly

Tuson was selected by an Illinois transportation customer to construct the engine end cap assembly displayed here. Manufacture of this product, which is used as part of a commercial bus door, required creative application of our capabilities made possible by our extensive expertise.

Fabrication of this 4.0" by 4.5" by 4.0" part required extensive use of a CNC-based lathe and machining centers. We used drilling and assembly processes as well for manufacturing. Materials consisted of 380 forged aluminum and 1018 steel with an added clear anodized finish. Tolerances on the part were held at ±0.001". We evaluated all units using pneumatic pressure testing, and ensured that all manufacturing steps were as cost effective as possible.

Thanks to our dynamic operations, we were the only firm the customer found that could deliver an attractive balance of accuracy and per-unit cost.

At Tuson we strive to be not only competitive, but also dedicated to providing quality in our manufacturing services. No matter the complexity or requirements, we are able to turn your engineering concepts into real parts and products. Contact us today to learn more.
