About the Project

The lighting manufacture company approached us and asked us to design this Matrix Moving Head. Our objectives were to build upon existing moving mechanism and design new covers and new look to this product using Vacuum Forming instead of Injection Molding. Other competitive product in the market used Injection Molding to achieve better details and part fits, but in this case we had to design the covers from Vacuum forming and reduce the initial investment in tooling this way. With 4 custom designed plastic components and a few metal parts, we were able to give this product the look of a professionally made product. Tooling investment was 70% less of injection molding tool. A significant advantage for a young company.
