A client recently contracted TMF, Incorporated to manufacture a series of FRL brackets. Used within a pneumatics application, these brackets were constructed based off a customer-supplied, 2D print in order to meet our client's precise product requirements. Using our advanced milling machinery, which met an extremely tight (+-) .005 of an inch precision tolerance, we built each unit to measure precisely 2 inches in length, 7-14 inches in width, and 18 of an inch in thickness. Each part also weighed approximately 5 ounces. Machining operations included milling the bracket's profile and slots, as well as drilling and countersinking all holes at precise locations.
The FRL brackets were constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum material and were provided a black anodized finish, which endowed the brackets with increased weather and corrosion resistance. This high-quality coating met all plating specifications. We also built each part to possess a low profile.
