One customer came to us to see if we could assist in solving a
problem they were having with manufacturing some display lenses .
They were constructing bulb holders for back lit bar displays.
This required the internal lens area to be sprayed white to give an
even opaque light. The rest of the component needed to remain
free from spray marking. There was a high number to be sprayed
and individual masking was not an option. We took their component
and designed a simple box which held four lenses enabling them
to be sprayed simultaneously.
The design was broken down to component parts and laid out for
cutting on the laser. Pre sized Acrylic sheets were used and loaded
in the machine for cutting. Once completed the individual parts
were separated into unit items ready for assembly.
Like a model kit the individual parts were bonded together to
create the completed spray jig. By having a number of these
boxes the customer was able to speed up production and
complete the order on schedule.
