CNC Milling of Aluminum FRL Bracket for the Pneumatics Industry


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, 7-1/4 inches in width, and 1/8 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.

After manufacturing was complete, we then measured all hole locations to ensure that every bracket met with our client's precise specifications. We then shipped all 150 units to our customer's facility in Bloomfield, Connecticut. Our ROHS certified operations fulfilled all of our client's high expectations for quality service.
