Pressure Formed Light Diffuser | Universal Plastics

The Customer’s Challenge:

Looking to make a large light diffuser (the sizes range between 40″ & 70″ long) this customer was stumped on how to make such a complex shape without spending a small fortune on an injection mold.

Universal Plastics’ Solution:

Universal Plastics partnered with the customer to develop an optimal pressure formed product design which met all of their engineering requirements for a fraction of the tooling cost and in much less time.

The End Result:

The part retains exceptionally crisp detail of the flutes, and remains flat along its entire length – not an easy feat over at 70″. This is a perfect example of the superiority of pressure forming over injection molding of large, complex parts when executed right through the expertise of Universal Plastics.
