Clear Plastic Prototyping Capabilities
CNC machining Clear prototype
Precision CNC machining is a perfect solution for Creating clear optical prototypes with transparent materials, with our precision CNC machining service, you can choose from different types of technologies, such as 3-axis, 4-axis, 5-axis, or even diamond machining.
Urethane Casting Clear Prototype
Urethane casting is a fast, economical way for creating transparent plastic prototypes in small quantities, using liquid urethane materials that are poured into a mold and cured to create clear prototypes that have high clarity and light transmittance
What is Clear prototyping?
Clear prototyping and optical prototyping are mainly referring to the machining of transparent acrylic (PMMA) and polycarbonate (PC), and most applications choose them to get a mirror-clear effect.
For example, automotive lighting lamp lens, light guides, or product Clear prototypes are often used for applications that require transparency or light transmission, such as optics, lenses, displays, etc. They can also create clear irregular and complicated shape models, and other equipment.
Clear Prototyping Materials
Acrylic (PMMA) is the most popular clear plastic material, and the best surface finish can be achieved through precision machining. Acrylic polishing can help present the best clarity and light transmittance. As a professional prototype manufacturer, we pride ourselves on advanced excellence in creating acrylic prototypes of optical components.
Polycarbonate (PC) is also one of the most commonly used transparent plastics for CNC machining. Its transparency is second only to acrylic, but its strength is much stronger than acrylic. Vapor polishing can be used for the post-finishing of machined PC parts, which can improve the internal and external surface finish and clarity of the parts.
