Custom Lead Parts
Nuclear Shields manufactures custom lead parts based on customer specific drawings and specifications. Our lead parts have a special adhesive layer that will make it very easy to attach the lead shielding to your equipment. This adhesive solution is very suitable for any device that needs lead shielding up to 3 mm thickness. Common uses are for industries such as aerospace, security, healthcare and communications.
Send us your drawings or specifications and we will provide you with your own custom lead sample for a quality check.
Our in-house CAD/CAM design team can design the adhesive lead parts to fit your x-ray equipment or other machines when no drawings are already available. Our factory is designed to meet requirements for long-term serial production, making sure your custom lead parts can be steadily produced over a longer period of time while maintaining a high quality. Prototypes can be delivered upfront to make sure the quality is as expected. Our production facility is capable of producing anything from small volume orders to production runs of 1000s. We always keep plenty of adhesive lead sheets in stock.
The standard finish of the lead parts is a RAL 7016 paint, which is an anthracite grey color. A special contaminable paint is available for situations where the lead parts might become contaminated. If preferred, the lead could be untreated. However, it is recommended to prevent exposure to lead for health and safety reasons.
CNC machined lead parts
Nuclear Shields can also CNC machine lead parts when small adhesive parts with a thickness of up to 3 mm lead is not enough. These machined parts have no specific maximum thickness and can be produced based on customer drawings or assisted by our in-house CAD/CAM design team. One example of CNC machined lead part uses is detector shielding boxes for x -ray equipment.
