Precision CNC Routing/Machining of Composite Flooring for an Automotive Application

Van FlooringGemini Plastics, Inc. was approached by an automotive industry customer in Ohio to assist with the manufacture of composite flooring for use in cargo vans. Using SolidWorks® 3D CAD software, we helped design the flooring, choose the raw materials, and devise a methodology for machining it to within very tight + 0.00"/- 0.05" tolerances. Requiring precision CNC machining of HDPE, we utilized our large capacity CNC routing equipment, and carefully transformed the 140" x 37" x 0.5" pieces of textured black recycled HDPE into the required shapes with precise cut-outs and contours required by the specification. Working closely with our customer, we successfully completed this project and continue to fabricate 35 - 1,500 units annually.
