Custom Thermoforming of a HDPE Snowmobile Fuel Tank
Stern Companies, a company known for its quality, competitive pricing, and extensive experience in thermoforming, was commissioned by a customer in the recreation vehicle industry for a fuel tank thermoforming project. The complex design of this snowmobile fuel tank was manufactured using twin sheet thermoforming and hot plate welding capabilities to create a 25 lb. fuel tank that measured 36" long x 18" wide x 14" high, with tightness tolerances of 1/8".
The Snowmobile Fuel Tank was made of HDPE with a EVOH barrier layer, and finished with a matte textured surface. The 300 - 1,500 production run met all of our customers specifications, industry standards, and was completed within 8 weeks, and delivered to locations across the USA.
