Custom Thermoformed ABS Bus Dashboard for the Mass Transit Industry

Northern Plastics has been working with the mass transit industry for over 25 years and has extensive knowledge of interior bus components. When approached to fabricate this bus dashboard, we were familiar with the needs of the client. This dashboard was going to be used to house the instrumentation and the heating/cooling ducts of the bus. Measuring 91.18" x 13.03" x 5.59", the dashboard was thermoformed from color matched ABS plastic and has a haircell/smooth finish. The units were CNC trimmed and deburred to complete the fabrication process. We performed go/no-go blocks, visual and dimensional inspections to guarantee that the requirements supplied by the customer were fulfilled. This project consisted of a production run of 350-550 units and we worked to tightest tolerances of ±.020". More information about this thermoformed bus dashboard project can be found in the following table. For additional details, please feel free to contact us.
