Click Image to Enlarge Thermoforming of a Plastic Go-Kart Cover for the Recreation Industry

We specialize in the custom thermoforming of large components for customers in a wide range of industries. We were awarded a contract to fabricate various sized plastic covers and panels for use on the front and sides of racing go-karts.

Working with customer specifications, the designed precision tooling enables us to keep a defined wall thickness on the curves and contours of the parts ranging in size from 32” x 25” to 57” x 40”. Using both durable polyethylene and high strength ABS sheets in a variety of colors, we thermoformed the panels on our large capacity, single shuttle machine to enable quick changeover and speed production for this mixture of parts. After trimming on a 5-axis CNC machining center, the parts are cleaned and prepped for shipment. At each step of the process, our quality team followed the inspection procedures documented in our ISO 9001:2008 certified quality management program to ensure we met the ±.010” tolerances.

Precise forming of these components deliver the appearance, performance, and durability needed to support the customers winning go-kart design. If you would like more information about this project or our expert thermoforming services, contact us today.
