Flexible process can produce a variety of fuel tanks
Company: TI Automotive
What: Flexible manufacturing process for blow-molded plastic fuel tanks
Innovation: Before blow molding is completed, this process places fuel-delivery components of different sizes and configurations inside the tank. This enables a single blow molder to produce plastic fuel tank variants for diesel, flex-fuel, gasoline and hybrid powertrains.
