Precision Thermoformed HDPE Plenum for the Automotive Industry

A client in the automotive industry came to us for a thermoformed component that would be used in the production of an electric vehicle. This thermoformed plastic plenum was used to cool the vehicle's batteries while the vehicle is being operated. Following the customer-supplied prints, we created the plenum by thermoforming HDPE to the specifications using our single station thermoformer. After thermoforming, we completed the part with CNC trimming, sonic welding, assembly and deburring. The production run for this plastic plenum thermoforming project was 250 units and was completed in 4-6 weeks. We met IMDS and level 3 PPAP standards and worked with check fixtures to adhere to required tolerances.
