Manufacturing of a Hydraulic Clutch Actuation Tubing for the Automotive Industry
Thermoplastic hydraulic clutch actuation tubing has been used to actuate clutch mechanisms for several decades. Using hydraulic fluids to engage the gearing in a manual transmission is a proven technology, just as the exclusive use of hydraulics in automotive braking systems.
Akron Polymer Products is a leader in providing thermoplastic hydraulic actuation tubing. We offer our customers design, development and manufacturing of small diameter, thick walled thermoplastic tubing that performs in under hood engine environments at pressures required for proper clutch actuation throughout the vehicle’s life.
Akron Polymer Products can extrude and form complex three dimensional shapes, and also assemble and test hydraulic actuation tubing out of many types of high performance polyamide (nylon) compounds. Akron Polymer Products is also capable of over molding the end adaptors and sleeving parts for abrasion or additional thermal protection.
Provide our customers with high performing, world class products. To learn more about this project, or about Akron’s other capabilities, contact Akron Polymer directly.
