Precision Thermoformed ABS Engine Cover for the Automotive Aftermarket Industry

Having worked for many years with clients in the automotive industry, it was understandable when a client came to Northern Plastics in need of an engine intake cover for the aftermarket automotive industry. They chose a thermoformed product because it is lightweight and durable. This V8 engine cover was used for the intake of V8 engine and was made by thermoforming ABS/polycarbonate material into the 27.5" x 24" x 9" unit. The cover has a textured finish. It was fabricated, trimmed and assembled using our 3 station thermoformer, 5- axis CNC router and pneumatic adhesive dispenser. Performing visual and dimensional inspections ensured that we fulfilled all the requirements of this client and worked to tightest tolerances of ± .030".
