optical sensor device

A smaller, but nonetheless complicated part are the composite domes we make for Ocular Robotics these domes are small (50mm diameter) but the weight, cosmetics and quality have to be 100%.
Initially we made the domes using oven-cured pre-impregnated laminates but due to cosmetic 'browning' issues we invented a new method utilising plastic printed components, trapped rubber intensifiers and an injection procedure to produce a composite RTM component with an 'A' class finish. These small components took all of our skill to reproduce in production quantities with consistent quality and weight.
