Tractor Trailer Plastic Bumper

This project consisted of development of a lower bumper for tractor trailer trucks. The customer had done a study on aerodynamics for the front of Semi trucks. During their study they came to the conclusion that if they would extend the bumper by six inches they it would push the wind resistance around the truck and hopefully improving fuel mileage. While developing this unit the customer decided to add fog lights so his drivers would be able to see better in foggy conditions. In the end the customer had a product that not only served his functional needs of wind resistance but also had an added safety feature. This ABS plastic part was paintable so the each truck could have a matching bumper. This product has proved to be a durable long lasting part that can handle the daily abuse from traveling up and down the road of this great nation delivering products.
