Dodge Viper Filler Fuel Door
Chrysler engineers select stainless steel investment castings as the best option for the fuel filler door for the Dodge Viper.
Barron Industries began by producing 4 stainless steel investment castings. All 4 castings were passivated to insure the removal of any residual iron on the surface which could lead to the appearance of rusting. Next, the castings were machined and assembled with springs, rubber nibs, screws, plastic and other parts into a complete working fuel filler door assembly. Each assembly was then completely inspected and tested for form, fit, function and appearance before being carefully packaged and shipped to the plant for installation.
Barron produces aluminum investment castings for the Mustang GT 500.
The Tier 1 supplier was originally seeking one supplier to manufacture low volume (3,500 – 10,000) aluminum castings, a second supplier to machine these same castings, and a third company that could assemble all the components into a fully tested and certified complete assembly. Instead, the company found Barron Industries which did everything – all under one roof. The end result was significant savings in cost, reduction in paperwork and improved peace of mind.
