Automotive Lighting Prototype

As the top automotive lighting prototype supplier in China, KUSLA provide high quality prototypes include lighting optic prototypes and lit mockups which are very closed to molding parts in the mass production. 

Why Automotive lighting prototype matter?

Automotive lighting lamp is one of the most important part for the car styling,  this means high quality automotive lighting prototype are required  for the styling designer to validate the styling of the complete car in the early stage before heavy investment. it is a complex engineering product combine of mechanical, optic and electronics. So, high precision and transparancy is required during the automotive lighting prototype manufacturing process for the good optic performance. 

KUSLA Automotive lighting Prototype example

KUSLA has ever made hundreds of Automotive lighting prototypes in the past for complete lighting lamp(lit mockup) include Headlights,Taillights, Turn Signal Lights, Interior Lights. we also produced many componets of lighting lamp include outer lens, bezel, light guide, light blade, reflector, housing, bracket and many more. Following our customer NDA requirement, here we show some of the prototypes we made long time ago which means the products already on sale in the market.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

we can make minimum R0.05 radius for the optic prototype such as light guides and reflectors. 

Yes, We can light guide with optic polycarbonate materials by our custom material block process

we can make max 1400mm long lightguide with one piece machining

Not like the other supplier make the bi-color outer lens with painting, KUSLA make one piece for one color part, then glue them into one piece. this is the best for reflecting the molding parts. 

We can make both for polycarbonate and acrylic material. Detail Polycarbonate grade as  LUX12114, PC2405,PC2245,PC 2407 550115,Makrolon LED 2245 551592/000000

PMMA grade: PMMA  8N, PMMA 8N 33681,PMMA 8N 33691,PMMA 8N DF23 milky red ,PMMA 8N Satinice DF23 Red 3V161, PMMA LD96,LD48,LD24,LD12

 

0.3mmX0.3mm is the minimum we can achieve with R0.05 milling tool.

We use a spray texture paint method, controlling the amount of paint and ensuring uniformity in speed. It will look consistent with the grain sample. The optical effect is approximately 80% similar with a tooling part according to our experience.

Yes, we have a partner laboratory that can conduct optical photometry test of car lights.

We can make colorful transparent prototype by Spray painting and dyeing or custom colorful material blocks for CNC machining.
