Lenses and Diffusers

Optimize your linear light fixture by partnering with Pexco in the lens or diffuser development. Pexco has generations of experience in supporting Lighting OEMs to develop new and innovative fixtures which deliver the perfect combination of light distribution, diffusion, and lumen output.

Have you ever worried about the lens you design falling out of the fixture?

It’s a big concern for many engineers in the lighting industry. Rest assured, Pexco provides part design guidance to help our customers design a sturdy and elegant lens assembly to prevent such an occurrence.

For medical or outdoor IP rated fixtures, Pexco is experienced with co-extruding flexible seals directly into an acrylic or polycarbonate lens.

Pexco manufactures linear extruded lighting components up to 12 feet in length, for use in nearly all indoor ambient, commercial, medical, and hospitality applications. These include but not limited to fixtures such as troffers, wraps, stairwells, strips, recessed, suspended, wall mounts, edge lighting, retrofits, undercabinet, garage, and vandal resistant.

Applications

Architectural applications call for unique and customized LED lighting solutions with many applications. Whether you are designing slender linear luminaries, recessed wall, cove, slot, suspended, or surface mounted light fixtures, Pexco makes an excellent manufacturing partner for your lens and diffuser needs. Pexco understands that the architectural market often has unusual specifications, close tolerances and specialized material blends, that deliver customized solutions with an aesthetic splendor. For this reason, our processes are designed to achieve close tolerances with consistent reliability. We also have hundreds of material blend options to choose from to combine the perfect ratio of diffusion, texture, and color.

Lighting Capabilities

Lighting OEMs face a number of challenges with changing regulations and competitive pressure.  Pexco clearly understands that technical expertise, speed in engineering development, product quality, service, delivery, and reducing overall cost are essential elements to helping our customers be successful.

Offering industrial lighting design and services, we have the capability to produce lenses with widths ranging from 1/3” to 23” and up to 16 feet long. We can supply surface patterns such as customized linear prisms, or rolled on diamond pattern prisms. We are superbly skilled with complex hook and leg designs, co-extrusions, and custom colors. 

Engineering Design Support

Pexco engineers help guide our customers through the entire design process.When it comes to choosing the optimal material blend and achieving just the right “hook to hook” dimension for a perfect “squeeze and release” or “snap over” fit, Pexco has the experience and knowledge to provide quick solutions.

If you need help with your lighting component design, our engineers, sales team and project managers are available to help you optimize your material blend, finalize your profile shape, add features, specify tolerances and design linear prisms. Feel free to share your design with Pexco and get one-on-one technical design support.

We are also available to educate and train your team in extrusion design or processing with a hands-on seminar. Our mission is to make our customers’ projects easy and successful.

Extrusion and Co-Extrusion

The name Pexco stands for Plastic Extrusion Company. Plastic extrusion is our #1 core competency. We have multiple extrusion and co-extrusion machines within our company and many of those are dedicated to acrylic and polycarbonate components for the lighting industry. Lighting OEMs have been relying on Pexco for their customized linear lighting lenses and diffusers since the 1970s.

Optimal Material Blends

Pexco’s expertise in lighting starts with having tremendous knowledge and experience extruding acrylic and polycarbonate material blends. With gravimetric blenders capable of blending 4 resins at one time, customers receive the perfect material formula with the right amount of diffusion, impact modifier, and color at a competitive cost.  We have built our capabilities around customers’ needs by investing in manufacturing floor space, machinery, technology, fabrication, and service.

Education

Looking for an extrusion seminar to help educate your engineers? Pexco offers educational presentations about the extrusion process and designing parts for extrusion.

Program Management

Speed to market is a necessity when it comes to launching lighting products successfully. Pexco assigns a Program Manager to guide our APQP process and keep everyone on track. 

Quality Control Practices

Pexco begins every project with an APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) meeting with our customer. Getting the details ironed out before we cut a die is essential to eliminating waste later. Pexco also provides FAIR (First Article Inspection reports) with initial samples, and PPAPs when requested. Pexco develops a control plan for each project and uses calibrated measuring equipment to monitor quality throughout production. Pexco is ISO 9001: 2015 certified.

Stocking Programs

One of the biggest challenges our customers face is to be able to quick ship an order within a few days of receipt. Space to hold inventory is often difficult for our customers, so Pexco offers stocking programs on certain items to allow next day shipments from our facility.

Lighting Materials Expertise

One of the many benefits of working with Pexco is that we are highly experienced with an extensive variety of raw materials. Once you help us to understand your product application, we will support you with a material recommendation.

Sometimes our customers know in advance the exact material needed for their product. At other times, the product design requires a custom-blended mix of multiple resins and additives to provide the optimal combination of light transmission and diffusion. Pexco stocks a wide range of reliable, high-quality acrylic and polycarbonate base resins, along with high-performing LED diffusive and colored additives, to give our customers the advantage of volume resin pricing with little to no lead time.

Pexco is also experienced with flexible and rigid PVC, reflective ABS or PC/ABS, and other resins used in lighting applications. For more information on developing the perfect material blend for your project, feel free to peruse some of our house materials, or call us today.
