“The new design is at least twice as strong as the original, and the customer has been very happy with the results.”
A manufacturer of plastic surge tanks identified a serious problem with their product. The original design of their surge tanks called for the filler necks to be molded directly into the tanks. Initially, this design appeared acceptable, but over time, the tank filler necks were prone to cracking and breaking, making the entire surge tank unusable. To correct this problem, they decided to assemble the brass filler necks onto the top surge tanks.
The solution involved designing a special metal flange that would be brazed to the bottom of the filler neck. Once the flange and filler neck were attached, the entire assembly would be assembled onto the plastic tank.
Equinox was called upon to do this custom work, for which special brazing fixtures were developed to control the necessary spacing dimensions. The new design is at least twice as strong as the original, and the customer has been very happy with the results.
“This customer has been extremely satisfied with our performance.”
A British distributor of automotive components to customers throughout Europe abruptly lost their supplier of brass radiator filler necks. To satisfy an immediate need for a replacement, they searched the Internet and found Equinox.
Within a few weeks of contact, we evaluated their needs and custom-manufactured filler necks to meet their requirements. This entailed re-engineering and developing new filler neck configurations, specifically by varying vent tube lengths, angles, and designs.
This customer has been extremely satisfied with our performance and has even stated that our products are higher quality than those of their previous supplier. We are presently working with them to develop steel filler necks and radiator hose connections that will enhance their product lines.
“The product was introduced on time and without issues.”
An equipment manufacturer developed a high-powered, custom industrial saw that required an elaborate cooling system. They sought Equinox to develop and manufacture a special filler neck and hose connection assembly for their new product.
Equinox worked with its engineering group to design the product. We suggested they increase the gauge of the hose connection material to give the assembly greater strength. Additionally, we specified the appropriate filler neck to meet the cooling system’s pressure requirements.
The product was introduced on time and without issues. Equinox has been producing the assembly for approximately a year, and orders are on the rise.
