Detailed Product Description
Clear Plastic Lenses
Clear plastic lenses are often used in construction products such as laser pointers, construction levels, and surveying devices. Protection devices like face shields and safety glasses also use clear lenses when the safety and strength of the plastic is important to the users safety. Clear Plastic Lenses range in applications from consumer goods like sunglasses, various lighting applications from flood lights to flash lights.
Polycarbonate is generally used as an optical lens due to it’s strength yet flexibility, especially in products for safety or that need to stand up to hard daily usage. Its strength is why it’s often used for safety applications and bullet proof windows. Polycarbonate’s flexibility makes it a natural choice for sunglasses and eyeglasses because Polycarbonate will bend farther than any other plastic of the same thickness. Polycarbonate has a unique blend of flexibility while maintaining strength and optical clarity that no other plastic can match.
We can produce custom clear parts from CNC machining, vacuum casting, injection moulding, or rapid prototyping techniques. The degree of clarity required, part complexity, quantities and timescales will all determine the appropriate process.
Injection mould tooling for clear plastic partFor low volume clear parts the ultimate solution, in terms of clarity, has to be to use CNC machining and hand polishing in materials such as Acrylic or Polycarbonate. As quantities rise, we would then move away from hand polishing a part, to polishing a tool that can then impart the required surface finish to the part, i.e. moulding.
Obviously, the nearer the manufacturing process can get to a smooth finish, the less polishing is required. Less polishing means less labour and therefore less cost. From this perspective, CNC machining has an advantage over additive manufacturing techniques, where the layering will always need to be dressed.
Injection Molded Optical Components
Acrylic Clear Injection Molded Optical Component
As Part of our dedication to Rapid Aluminum Tooling with “No Limitations”, Class A Surface Finishes are available in order to create optical components like prisms, light pipes, light guides and clear lenses from materials like Acrylic and Polycarbonate.
Even with the highly aesthetic nature of clear plastic parts and the surface quality needed to achieve them, it is not impossible to expect the highest level of quality from Aluminum Tooling. Clear plastic components require tight tolerances and attention to detail other surface levels don’t require. Many “Rapid Prototype” shops don’t have the capabilities to tackle these types of finishes. IPP™ however does allow Goldcattle the ability to create the very best quality injection molded plastic prototype parts guaranteed in (1) Day to (3) Weeks maximum, with no design limitations. If needed, there are surface treatments that can be applied to “harden” Aluminum Tooling to ease the creation of certain difficult optical designs.
