Steel Evaporative Canister Bracket Assembly for the Automotive Industry
With capabilities including deep draw stamping and sheet metal fabrication, McAlpin Industries manufactured this steel canister bracket assembly, used in an automotive HVAC application. Working with M35011 sheet steel, we fabricated the initial, rough form of the piece, with the deep draw stamping process resulting in final part measurements of 321.8 mm long and 195.7 mm wide. An assembly step was also required, and we welded several stud attachments to the bracket for mounting purposes.

In addition, we made use of our wide-ranging finishing services, first applying a phosphate coating to the assembled bracket, then using cathodic electrodepositioning to apply a thin outer coating of .015 mm - .020mm. Per client instruction, we carried out salt spray testing, which was successful, due to the strength and resistance of the applied finishes. Maintaining a dimensional tolerance of ±.15 mm, we exceeded client expectations in delivering this superior part.
