Precision Forming, Welding & Fabrication of an Automotive Expansion Tank 

The oil breather tank highlighted here was manufactured by Central Ohio Metal Stamping for a customer in the automotive aftermarket industry. The customer supplied 2D CAD drawings called out the use of aluminum. The dimensions and geometry required the use of various high tech metal forming processes including metal stamping. An in-house tooling department fabricated the dies utilizing an Agie wire EDM, this internal resource minimized tooling costs, and adds a measure of control to the process. A Mazak 3D 6-axis laser cutter providing high-precision cutting of the aluminum blanks. The tank sections were formed using high precision stamping presses and press brake, and then assembled utilizing advanced 6-axis OTC Daihen robotic welding cells. These cutting edge processes allowed for tolerances of ±.005" throughout the fabrication process, which were verified by comprehensive dimensional and visual inspections.
