Con-Tech’s air brake tank fittings are produced by our global contract manufacturing partners in China, Taiwan, India and across the globe, many of whom are ISO certified. They consistently deliver a wide range of air brake tank fittings which meet the highest standards of precision component manufacturing and which are machined in TS-16949 certified factories.
The Importance of Air Brakes
Air brakes, friction brakes that stop a vehicle by using compressed air on a piston to apply pressure to brake pads, are key to most commercial vehicle users. Con-Tech air brake tank fittings have cold-formed steel weld spuds that are an integral part of the air reservoirs in truck and trailer braking systems. These steel weld flanges perform reliably on many well-known brands, including Freightliner and others.
Con-Tech’s resistance welded fittings are available in four sizes, with threads made to NPTF Dry Seal Thread standards and are stocked in volumes sufficient to ensure an uninterrupted supply. We stock our steel weld spuds in 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, and 3/4″ sizes.
Why Using Con-Tech Works
We can also custom manufacture air brake tank fittings to your design. Our custom manufacturing experts both know the most efficient ways to create parts and can create the highest quality parts possible. They are experienced in casting, stamping, deep drawing, CNC machining, fabricating, finishing, forging, plating, anodizing, polishing, and injection molding. They also offer many types of precision machining including milling, turning, and electrical discharge machining which is usually controlled using a Computer Numerical Controls (CNC) and blueprints made by CAD (computer-aided design) or CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) programs like AutoCAD and TurboCAD.
These are manufacturers work to your specifications with materials that are tested to meet all relevant global contract manufacturing standards for your industry. This allows them to consistently deliver a wide range of manufactured parts that are produced to meet challenging requirements.
Con-Tech custom manufacturing customers save money as they don’t have to invest in equipment or train-related personnel. Relying on expert outsource manufacturing to obtain custom manufacturing results in higher quality parts than if they were made in house.
