Valve cap to Keep the water pumping

J&S Laser Profiles have been busy throughout January with an interesting project.

Manufacturing a valve cap for a water pump as part of a repeat job from an existing client Wright Rain.

Before we start

We have started by making two new tools to assist with the process. One for shaping the valve cap and one for stamping the writing on top.

Valve Cap for Wright RainNow we’re ready

The valve caps are manufactured from 3mm mild steel and were programmed and lasered. Once the programming and laser is complete the caps are the stamped and formed. This is to give them the identity of a Wright Rain product and their shape.

Checked, cleaned and handover

Each valve cap is cleaned and checked by our Quality Manager before handover.

The client will complete the final manufacturing process of plating and rubberised. Once this has been carried out they are ready for installation.
