Engel Launches Cost-effective Injection Molding Lines for Producing Optical Components
- Jun 22, 2011
More and more high quality optical components are being produced using polymers. Two factors are driving this trend. Firstly, glass is being replaced by lighter polymers that can be processed more cost effectively; and secondly, plastics offer greater scope in terms of product design. The challenge now is to strike the right balance between superior optical quality and high cost effectiveness and this can be achieved thanks to multi-layer technology.
Manufacturing optical components in the injection molding process entails additional challenges that in many cases cannot be resolved by standard processes: microstructures on the surface of light guide elements must be precisely molded...
