Lighting Solution Provides Enhanced Diffusion for Medical Device Inspection

LED light diffusing plastics with outstanding aesthetics, light transmission, and diffusion

lighting medical inspectionA process engineer was designing an inspection workstation at a medical device factory. The project required specialized lighting that would allow for easy inspection of the medical products and also create a visually comfortable work environment for the inspectors. The inspectors disliked the “harsh” lighting that they had experienced at other inspection workstations in the factory.

The engineer was looking for a plastic light diffuser that would meet a number of CTQs including:

  • High light transmission
  • Outstanding diffusion of the LED lamps
  • The correct color temperature (tint) to maximize worker comfort

Light Transmission Requirements

He met with one of Curbell Plastics’ sales representatives to discuss the project. Working together, they identified a plastic sheet material that has outstanding aesthetics as well as the light transmission and diffusion properties that were required for the project.
