BRIGHTON, MICH. — TG Fluid Systems USA Corp. is adding a multilayer single-screw extruder machine to boost production of fuel lines for the North American auto industry.

R&B Plastics Machinery LLC of Saline, Mich., made the MAX extruder system for TG Fluid Systems of Brighton, Mich. TG is part of Toyoda Gosei Co. Ltd., based in Kiyosu, Japan, and makes fuel systems for automakers including Toyota, Honda and General Motors.

The MAX extruder will produce three-layer fuel lines made of nylon and fluoropolymer materials, R&B said in a May 17 news release. The auto industry has been bringing more multilayer production to auto fuel systems to improve emissions control, much as fuel tanks have been made with multiple layers.
