This is the first application of a single- collimator, all-plastic molded lens for both low and high beam LED headlamp applications replacing glass.
The efficient optical lens provides stylists with a new level of design freedom and vs. multi-lens designs save approximately $5 USD/vehicle.
A special optical grade of PC material was used for optical efficiency; a multi-shot injection molding process forms the 45-mm thick lens, whose surface tolerances must be held within 40 ?. Cycle times vs. glass are significantly reduced as well.
