Twin Sheet Forming Part Provides Impact Absorption
We used the Twin Sheet Process to manufacture this part used in the medical industry. This part is a bumper used to surround the base of a mobile medical diagnostics computer workstation. Its purpose is to absorb the impact of running into door jambs. It is a twin-sheet part that is painted, and shows no evidence of the parting line. After forming, the part is filled with a 2-part urethane 10# density foam for additional strength. There are various inserts and clips installed as secondary operations. It is made with a fire-retardant ABS/PVC alloy.
