Sunkist® SunSort Optical Citrus SorterFresh Produce Packing
By switching from in-house sheet metal enclosures to thermoforming with Ray Products, Sunkist was able to develop a next-generation sorter that turns heads at tradeshows, while streamlining manufacturing operations and providing new levels of durability.
A Thermoformed Enclosure for a 3D Printer3D Printing
We worked with Stratasys, the world's leading 3D printing company to transition from a reaction injection-molded (RIM) to a 100% molded-in-color pressure-formed enclosure. This pressure forming project provided several benefits to Stratasys including improved manufacturing speed. Lastly, this project won gold award in the 2019 Society of Plastic Engineers (SPE) Thermoforming Division Parts Competition.
Converting a Medical Device From Urethane Casting to Pressure FormingMedical
By switching from urethane casting to pressure forming with Ray Products, a medical device manufacturer was able to significantly lower costs, improve manufacturing speed, increase durability and guarantee part-to-part repeatability while planning for future increases in demand and capacity.
Advanced Digital Pathology Slide ScannerMedical Devices
Manufacturing this digital pathology scanner demanded an innovative approach, incredible levels of precision, and high-performance materials.
Cell ImagingMedical Equipment
When designing the outer covers for its new automated cell-imaging system, this Southern California based medical company turned to Ray Products and Pressure Forming. The main housing is approximately 36” x 36” and has formed-in features for two small access doors. All parts are pressure formed using UL 94 V-0 flame rated material. The curved top cover is molded in tinted polycarbonate. External skins are painted and silkscreened. Hinge mounts and other hardware were installed prior to shipment.
Semiconductor Testing EquipmentSemiconductor Manufacturing
When the leading manufacturer of Automated Test Equipment (ATE) was searching for a custom molded solution, they turned to Ray Products to provide highly cosmetic and functional pressure formed parts to meet their needs. Integrating our custom molded plastic parts with a sheet metal manufacturing process, the company was able to achieve their design intent along with the functionality and performance they needed in the final product.
Solar RackingSolar Energy
When the leader in one-piece easy-to-install solar-mounting systems needed a manufacturing partner, they chose Ray Products. Our ability to mold large parts (up to 10 x 18 feet) allowed a multi-cavity tool to be produced, allowing the manufacturing of high volumes in short lead times. Utilizing an assembly cell at the 6-axis robotic trimming station allowed for the molding, trimming and assembly of the product in a continuous cycle.
When flexibility and time to market are critical, as well as the ability to mold in color and eliminate paint, automotive partners turn to Ray Products to satisfy their requirements. With this project, we molded a Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) trunk tray for an automotive OEM that will provide protection and anti-skid properties while maintaining its shape in the harshest environments.
Multi-Part Medical CartMedical Equipment
Ray Products manufactured the multi-color multi-part enclosure for this lifesaving medical device using custom colors of thermoplastic material. The cosmetic surfaces are achieved by applying a Mold Tech Acid Etch Texture to the tool surface. As a result, the parts required no additional finish to achieve this attractive appearance.
