CNC clear lighting prototypes
Rapid prototyping of automotive clear lighting prototypes is the
quick turnaround by using CNC machines to machine transparent PMMA
or polycarbonate material. The slower the tool goes on while
machining, the better the machine surface the part will be. For
clear light guides, the last smallest tool on the optical teeth is
normally the R0.15 mm which will take many hours to finish the last
step. As the PMMA material is fragile and easy to break, thus will
need to pay a lot of attention when proceeding the machining.
As clear lighting parts are transparent, thus the most important
thing is the cosmetic should be perfect. However, when the parts
are over the length of the CNC platform working stage, the parts
will need to split, in this case, the gluing technology and
polishing toward the bonding mark is super important. The best is
to apply the splitting on the step areas so that the bonding mark
can be covered together with the step. Then together with the
polishing process, it will make the bonding mark as smallest as
possible to keep the original clear cosmetic without breaking the
lighting routine as well.
Vacuum casting clear lighting prototypes
The lighting industry now is in the progress of casting 2K parts in
both black and clear material or red and clear material. To fulfill
this, the first thing is the material must be the same otherwise
different materials will cause reaction with bubbles, then the
whole casting part will be discarded and need to remake, this will
waste time and cause higher cost.
The masters of the 2K parts have to be in the same finish, the
black lens needs to paint as black first, the glue with the clear
lens and make 2 silicone molds, one is the complete 2K part mold,
one is the black lens mold, then we casting the black lens first,
and then put the black casting lens into the silicone mold, and
continue to cast the clear lens, after getting the complete 2K
lens, apply mirror polish again to make the whole part in a good
Post finishing of lighting prototypes
3.1 The first is the mirror polish on clear lighting prototypes.
Except optical teeth will not do any handwork polish, other clear
surfaces will need to apply such process after finish CNC
machining. To remove the tool marks we will need to use #400 and
#600 sanding paper first, then to #1000 sanding paper and even
#1500 to get a good surface, the polishing paste for PMMA is
special and with this can remove the sanding paper marks, and after
this, the final part will be completed.
3.2 The second is post-treatment. Painting is the most comment
finish with different colors, for example, black matte, black
glossy, red glossy or clear black and clear black, all of such
finish are available and professional in us, even there are some
clients would like to do the painting in us even they make the raw
parts by their own.
3.3 The third post finish that we would like to introduce is the
plating. Most of the lighting reflectors will need to do plating to
improve the lighting result. The plating finish that we apply on
reflectors is rich and high quality.
Automotive Rapid Prototyping Quick Detail:
Now due to the pursuit of high-quality life, the quality standard
toward the automotive parts is getting higher and higher now. In
this case, the improvement for the current machining ways toward
the automotive parts especially automotive lighting products such
as the headlamps and light guides is getting more technology
necessary. For example the lighting prototyping parts of Audi, BMW,
Benz are already pursuing high transparency by applying the diamond
tool to machine the optical teeth, making automotive lighting
manufacturers have to improve such technology and spend more cost
in diamond tools development.
