Paper Title:
A New Manufacturing Method for a Screw-Threaded Fuel Filler Pipe
  Abstract

The growing demand for lightweight products has been increased by the rapid development of automobiles in order to reduce fuel consumption. One of the keys to reduced fuel consumption is to utilize high-strength, light materials like stainless steel that are difficult to form due to their high strength. This paper discusses the development of pressing technology that forms relatively high-strength stainless-steel pipe with surface screw threads. Our new press-forming process was tested to obtain accurate screw threads on stainless-steel pipe. A 3-D digitizer was used to measure the accuracy of pipes manufactured by the proposed pressing method. Our proposed press-forming method decreases pipe thickness more effectively than conventional roll-forming technology. The maximum decrease in material thickness produced by conventional roll forming was 40%. The maximum decrease in material thickness produced by our press-forming process was 20%.
