As a prototype expert of automotive lighting, our confidence comes from our hard work and strength.
We focus on providing complete automotive lighting prototypes, which allows us to expand our knowledge and experience in this field and provide professional prototype services to many well-known automotive OEMs and suppliers around the world.
From proof of concept design reviews and optical system development engineering tests to show car projects, From lamp lens prototype to optical component prototype, we are able to support at all levels of automotive product development processes.
We specialize in a variety of automotive prototyping developments and rapid manufacturing technology, providing CNC machining, 3D printing, vacuum casting, rapid aluminum tooling, low volume injection molding, and sheet metal processing.
Auto Lamp Lens Prototype
The best combined of 3-, 4-, 5-axis CNC milling machines, equipped with machine tools with a stroke of more than 1 meter, have the knowledge to machine clear plastic parts without blemishes.
Split and bond solutions could respond to machining costs saving and machining limitations. The visible bonding line on the acrylic surface can be wisely invisible by a suitable splitting solution and fine finish.
To ensure the delicate transparency for auto lenses, we strictly process polish from coarse to fine sand-polish, from polish paste to polish liquid, to achieve the highest transparency on the Lens.
We can provide a variety of optional cost-effective 2K molding solutions. Urethane Casting achieves the integrated 2K lens overmolding in two or more materials.
Precision Machining of Optical Components
5-axis CNC machining for the complex surface features, diamond cutting tools can achieve top surface quality, the minimum tool can machine to R0.1mm to perfectly present the designer’s optical details. So it’s not only the appearance of perfect but also helps the optical designer to verify the luminosity.
The diffuse light emitter as a universal optical design feature creates a three-dimensional impression of the radiation and ensures a high degree of uniformity of the illuminated surface. The 5-axis CNC continuous milling and mirror polishing technology provide excellent surface quality for the production of transparent acrylic (PMMA) prototypes.
The cylindrical light conductors, typically 7 to 10 mm in diameter, are CNC machined from PMMA or PC material in a single piece. The transmission of light through the total reflection results in very uniform linear illumination over the entire prismatic column. Attention to detail in every aspect of the complex optical design and the use of ultra-precision cutting technology and hair-thin tools breaks new ground in the production of automotive lighting prototypes.
Prismatic light conductors radiate LED light from the rear through the light guide to the front through total reflection, emphasizing the depth of the lighting system with additional lens structures on the sides. We specialize in the precision machining of complex surfaces, and support you with expert rapid prototyping to create intelligent and attractive innovative designs.
CNC Aluminum Reflector
Improved reflectivity, enhanced illumination intensity and light range are critical for vehicle light reflectors (reflector cups). Utilizing precision 5-axis CNC machining equipment and high speed cutting techniques for machining complex geometry aluminum reflectors, we focus on every engineering detail and design specification to help designers with every challenging project.
- CNC manufacturing team of professional engineers and machinists, optimized NC programming and efficient toolpaths.
- 5-axis continuous CNC machining for greater machining accuracy and flexibility.
- We pay attention to every design detail, optical pattern details are machined to a minimum radius of R0.10mm.
- Excellent surface quality with a finished surface finish of Ra (μm) 0.2 and surface tolerance of ±0.025mm.
- Auxiliary EDM machining is necessary to meet the overall machining requirements of the part.
- With highly professional hand polishing, the final reflector sample surface will have an optical mirror effect.
From Small Batch Customization to Pre-Production
Small Batch Urethane Casting
Low volume vacuum casting parts for lamp prototyping are often used for loading and unloading tests to check working mechanisms and manufacturability. With accurate and detailed prototypes, fast and inexpensive silicone molds, and a wide selection of engineering-grade polyurethane materials, you can get production-like results in most cases within 2 weeks, including mechanical characteristics, color, and surface finish.
Rapid Injection Molding
We have the ability to provide rapid tooling of both aluminum and soft steel and low volume injection molding to deliver your end-use molded parts within 2-5 weeks. We provide cost-effective and rationalized advice from designs, materials, production processes, manufacturability, etc.
