Industrial Programmable Theater Lighting
Creating a part from plastic that is ultimately used in a high-heat environment creates significant challenges. Profile engineers were faced with using multiple materials that have different physical properties—but needed to meet overall target pricing for the project.
The Profile Advantage. The physical requirements of the unit were achieved by utilizing an aircraft-grade polycarbonate on a high-output theater lamp housing and a polycarbonate/ABS blend material on the supporting control housing.
The design resulted in reduced tooling investment and more efficient and simplified production.
In addition, the use of an articulating plug assist within the forming process maximized finished wall thickness with a thinner starting gauge material—further contributing to the value of the overall part to this product.
