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:

Discovery

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.

Proposal

After we have thoroughly reviewed the existing design and developed an optimized solution, we present that for review.

Prototyping

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:

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:

  • Quality
  • Timing
  • Communication
  • Capabilities
  • Tariffs/shipping costs
  • Reliability 
  • Security

Custom Wire Connectors + Harnesses Streamline Production

Why outsource the installation of connectors when VCC can do it in house? Our custom connection solutions empower OEMs to:

  • Combine the final two steps of production
  • Maintain process control
  • Reduce manufacturing costs
  • Streamline your supply chain
  • Reduce the number of vendors 

Choose from a range of connectors (or provide your own): 

  • 2-position
  • Crimp housing
  • Wire-to-wire
  • Micro-Fit Dual Row
  • Micro-fit Rectangular Power Connector

With North American production, our value-added services provide additional benefits of speed, cost reduction, and enhanced transparency.

Only VCC has the skills, technology, and expertise to customize every aspect of your indicator design. Whether you need turnkey PCB assembly or an optimized light pipe design, we’re here to help you reach your goals on time, on budget, and in the most efficient ways possible.
