The Manufacturing Process Explanation: How to Make an LED Infinity Mirror?
Have you ever wondered how those mesmerizing LED infinity mirrors are made? The process may seem complex, but with a little bit of knowledge, you can create one for yourself. In this article, we’ll take a deep dive into the manufacturing process of LED infinity mirrors and break it down step by step. From the materials used to the intricate wiring, we’ll cover it all.
1. Gather Materials
Two-way Mirror or Acrylic Mirror Sheet
This is a specialized type of mirror that allows light to pass through it while reflecting some of it back. For the illusion of an infinite tunnel of light, you’ll need a portion of this mirror.
LED Strip Lights
You can choose the length of these LED light strips and fasten them to the mirror’s edges. To line the borders of the two-way mirror and produce the desired lighting effect, a few meters of these lights are required.
You will need materials to create a frame to hold the two-way mirror and LED strip lights in place.
LED strip lights require a power source to work. You will need a suitable power supply that can deliver the necessary voltage and amperage to the lights.
Wiring and Connectors
You will need to connect the LED strip lights to the power supply using wiring and connectors. The type and size of wiring and connectors will depend on the specific LED strip lights and power supply you are using.
Switches and Dimmers
You could want to add a dimmer to control the light’s brightness as well as an optional but recommended switch to turn the lights on and
2. The Manufacturing Process
Design and Planning
Designing your product entails creating a prototype, or a blueprint, of how you want the finished item to appear, as well as making any necessary adjustments to guarantee that it operates correctly.
This would give you a rough idea of what the finished product will look like and whether or not there are any gaps or seams that need to be addressed before moving on to the next step.
The actual production of your LED infinity mirror will take place at this phase. Based on the template, make the internal structure of the lenticular sign, including the installation position and quantity of the bottom reflective mirror and front translucent double-sided mirror, as well as the installation position of the LED light strip.
Installation of LED Strip and Illuminated Letters
The installation of LED strip and illuminated letters is a crucial step for the Infinity Mirror. The LED light strip should be installed at the designated position of the internal structure to ensure effective reflection of light.
Installation of Reflective Mirror and Translucent Mirror
Place reflective and translucent mirrors in their designated positions on the internal structure to ensure effective reflection and refraction of light.
Build an Illuminated Box with a Black Acrylic Board
Construct a black acrylic box to control the reflection and transmission of light according to the size, shape, and depth of the internal structure.
Make sure that the reflective side of the mirror is facing outward as you assemble the mirror and acrylic board lighted box on the inside structure to create a box frame structure.
Bottom Board Installation
Position the silver mirror and PVC board at the bottom of the infinity mirror sign in a manner that ensures stability and balance.
Testing & Aging
After installing the power supply and controller, test the lenticular sign with electricity to ensure that the effect and quality meet requirements.
