Solve Tough Design Challenges
The VCC Way: Collaborate Early + Often
We take a holistic view of every custom project, ensuring we understand the scope, goals, and other requirements from every angle.
In many cases, clients will approach us with a custom light pipe design, and we discover how to help improve the overall efficiency and performance by making other modifications. Or, we help streamline production and ramp up delivery by providing additional services like PCB assembly or wire harnessing.
The earlier we can collaborate in the process, the fewer design constraints we’ll have to navigate. Our team is also experienced in creating innovative solutions later in the process too.
Here’s the process we use to ensure no details are overlooked in creating an optimal solution:
We take the time to ask the right questions about your device, operating environment, timeline, design constraints, budget, optical properties certifications, regulatory and other requirements.
Light Modeling / Ray Tracing
If there’s an existing design, we run light simulations to establish a baseline and look for areas of improvement.
After we have thoroughly reviewed the existing design and developed an optimized solution, we present that for review.
Upon approval of the proposal, we move into prototyping to validate the concept. Our in-house capabilities include 3D printing of SLA prototypes for review and approval prior to tooling.
Tooling / Final Design Approval
After the prototype is approved, we move into tooling. Our 3D prototypes are a 90% match to the finished product, so there is no money wasted in the tooling process.
Production and Delivery
Once tooling is complete, we fabricate and assemble components nearby in Mexico so you can take advantage of nearshoring benefits. Then QA and testing are performed before carefully packaging and shipping out the order.
Unmatched Custom Light Pipe Design Expertise
VCC is the industry leader in innovative light pipe design and production. Our multi-disciplinary team of professionals is dedicated to creating the ideal solution for our clients and includes:
- Optical engineers
- Electrical engineers
- Mechanical engineers
- Skilled technicians
Custom light pipe solutions can revolutionize your device — whether you’re completing an LED retrofit or developing a new product. With the right partner, you can achieve a more efficient and cost-effective solution at a price that is more affordable than you may think.
We have extensive expertise in delivering custom light pipes that deliver the ideal solution by incorporating a combination of factors, including:
- Light pipe material
- Light pipe placement
- Coatings and colors
- Viewing angle
- Visual vocabulary
- Brightness / intensity
- Design requirements
- Production processes
All of these elements help us determine the appropriate look, shape, and properties of the custom light pipe to meet or exceed specifications.

PCB Assembly You Can Count On
When it comes to PCB assembly, not all partners provide the same level of quality or service. While it’s tempting to focus on the lowest cost per assembled board, there are several factors that impact your end result:
- Tariffs/shipping costs
