Penz Products,Inc.

Fabrication of an ABS Truck Cap/Topper for the Transportation Industry

A customer in the transportation industry contracted Penz Products to fabricate a custom truck topper. Opting for a lightweight thermoformable material (ASA) allowed us to replace a much heavier thermoplastic material without sacrificing performance.

We designed and fabricated custom production molds and fixtures for part production and fabricated the unit with high impact weatherable. Our highly developed thermoforming process was employed for manufacturing, completing the precision detailing with CNC machining processes to tolerances of ± 0.010”. The part was then assembled on site to specification.

Overall dimensions of the finished unit were 124” in length, 80” in width, and 27” in height with part thickness ranging from 0.170” to 0.250”. The part weighed 220 lbs. and exhibited a smooth finish of various colors. Turnaround time was 6 to 8 weeks, and product was made available for nationwide shipping.

Specialized packaging (welded steel) was also created for this product. The production was a success on all levels meeting customer and rigorous industry standards. Budget and delivery times were met along with achieving internals goals of cost containment and providing a better and lighter product. As industry leaders in the truck and trailer manufacturing industry, Penz Products is ever improving and constantly innovating our processes and product offerings.
