Front Lamp Low Volume Production
Having already worked closely together on a number of Automotive Lighting Projects, CTP Wipac approached Protool about Low Volume Production Tooling to support the supply of Front and Rear Headlamp parts for a high end Automotive OEM.
Due to the Low Volume part requirement and subsequent restrictions on the budget the tooling would be manufactured from aluminium but would still be required too the high quality expected of Front and Rear Outer Lens and internal Optic and Bezel parts which would need to be to an SPI-A1 mirror polish finish.
The next step in the process was to undertake tooling and feasibility study on all the parts, as well as advising on any design modifications to improve its manufacturability for tooling. Working closely with Wipac Tooling and Design Engineers these steps were quickly and efficiently completed with approval given for tool manufacture to get underway. With Wipacs’ support with moulding the project was completed with parts of the expected quality produced o eb taken to saleable vehicles.
