To serve completely individual requirements, polyscale offers the possibility of developing a complete system according to customer specifications. The required parameters are evaluated and then the solution is worked out in terms of design, electronic components and optical function. Partial components of systems, such as individual LED strips / LED boards, are also made possible by polyscale.
The core task in connection with optical fibers and optical films is the optical design of the optical components. This includes the theoretical development as well as complex simulations to generate the final solutions. The subsequent manufacture of prototypes, tooling and, in particular, series production are part of the range of services.
The use cases of this broad field of tasks are manifold.
Complex optical systems are developed with regard to light guides and optical foils for e.g. displays, functional lights or ambient lighting for vehicles. The challenges arising from the combination of geometry, optical requirements, material properties and design are met in the individual development steps.
Necessary LED solutions are the responsibility of polyscale both separately or in combination with the optical components. The systems are installed in luminaires, electronic assemblies and automotive applications.
Essentially, physical framework conditions have to be taken into account in the development of complex solutions, whereby the possibilities via material selection and optical design offer the greatest possible degree of freedom. Starting a project early allows us to jointly develop the optimal solution, thus leveraging polyscale’s capabilities in optical design, tooling, and manufacturing technology. Thus, requests for individual solutions for
The development of completely individual solutions requires all disciplines, with the optical conception and subsequent optical design forming the basis.
Complex framework conditions and requirements for the lighting unit are taken as a basis and the optical effects are analyzed via simulations using ray tracing software.
The transfer of simulation results into prototypes is typically done without tools.
In the case of optical components that fall into the mold, tooling is performed by means of diamond cutting, nickel molding of master surfaces or laser engraving.
