Optical Assemblies

Chomerics offers a fully integrated plastic or glass optical assembly including housings, bezels, frames, gaskets, cosmetic finishing and supply chain for both EMI and non-shielding applications. We work with your design to incorporate all required mechanical, electrical and cosmetic requirements. We offer EMI compliance and safety testing at interim design stages or at final system certification.

Options for housings, bezels and frames include machined aluminum with"MIL-DTL-5541 Type I or II, Class 3 conversion coating or injection molded using Premier electrically conductive plastic or traditional thermoplastic with/ without secondary EMI coating. The specifics of the application environment, cosmetic and electrical requirements, part geometry and cost targets will drive the choice for bezel/frame materials.

Parker Chomerics will integrate environmental and/or EMI gaskets, tapes, absorbers and thermal management materials into the optical solution. Our wide variety of indoor and outdoor EMI gaskets can be dispensed, or retained with adhesives or mechanical techniques. Materials range from fabric over foam to finger stock to elastomeric. Our line of soft elastomers (Shore A hardness ‹50) are an ideal choice for an EMI/environmental seal on an optical solution with a plastic housing, frame or bezel.

Parker Chomerics will integrate pad printing, silk screening, hot stamping and decals. We can work with you to design and build the silk screening artwork and will obtain and maintain all tooling to add these features. A cosmetic exterior painting can be added using our authorized painting suppliers. Customer specified hardware can be incorporated along with a variety of final assembly techniques including heat staking and sonic welding to complete the integrated optical solution.

Touchscreens and other user enhancements can be integrated into the optical assembly. Optical bonding materials and techniques are available to improve sunlight readability, optical clarity and contrast enhancement while reducing reflection and the possibility of lamination contaminants.
