A key benefit of partnering with the LightSources Group is the diverse experience gained from each of our respective partner companies.  LightSources is a world leading provider of lighting solutions, partnering with fellow leaders in the industry to provide the most technologically advanced, cost effective solutions available for our customers.

LCD Lighting (LCDL) is a leader in the design and manufacture of high quality long-lasting T2, T4, T5, T8, and T2 fluorescent lighting solutions.  Their product line includes compact fluorescent lamps, aquarium lighting, CCFL Sub-mini lights and HCFL-aperture and reflectors, and specialized back lighting used in computer displays and avionics.

LCDL is a pioneer in research and development with several patented technologies that set them apart from other fluorescent lamp suppliers.  Proprietary products include custom phosphor blends for vibrant color retention and brightness.

The development of LCDL’s proprietary product Robo-Bend allows for serpentine hot and cold cathode lamps to be manufactured automatically with a bending ability.   This results in a reduction in the number of cathodes required in a backlight, often saving twice the power as it is possible to move from six cold cathode lamps to a single hot cathode lamp.  The benefit is faster production and delivery, saving customers money with a reduced work in process time and leaner inventory requirements.

LCD Lighting also offers patented technology Ultra-Bright™, providing twice the efficiency (lm/watts) with fifty percent improvement in lumen output.  Ultra-Bright offers maximum performance for consistent output even in bends, throughout the long-lasting life of the lamp.

UV Adhesive Curing Used in Many Industrial Processes

post-125

Ultraviolet light has several benefits in manufacturing processes as a catalyst for polymer and adhesive curing.  UV radiation is used in various effective wavelengths between 10 and 400 nanometers, producing UVA, UVB, or UVC radiation.  UV radiation is useful by causing a reaction in polymers to alter the structure causing an instant hardened and strengthen surface, instantly drying ink and varnishes and bonding glues and fillers.

This is useful in several product manufacturing processes and assemblies of items where strength and durability are critical such as military, defense and avionics, to name just a few.  If you are searching for a better solution for your critical assembled product, consider UV adhesive curing for a tight seal, with long-lasting durability.

Some examples of processes that benefit from UV adhesive curing are as follows:

  • Aerospace
    • UV radiation supplies clear optical clarity combined with strength and durability in extreme temperature conditions
  • Government and Military
    • Critical components require long lasting strength and durability with dependability in extreme conditions
  • Medical and Dental Devices
    • UV radiation sterilizes medical devices and components such as syringes
  • Electronics
    • Protective films and fillers used in various electrical components
    • Can permanently bond and seal glue and fillers with glass, plastic or metal products.
  • Fiber Optics
    • UV radiation provides an air-tight seal protecting fiber optic cables with glass tubing
    • Tight seals promotes maximum LED or LCD lighting
  • Ink-Jet Printing
    • UV curing instantly dries inks in various printing processes drying inks on paper, card-stock and other materials
  • Labeling on Products
    • Enhances company logos with vibrant finishes on various products.

LightSources and our affiliated companies represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today.  Our products are used world-wide in a multitude of applications and industries such as our UV polymer curing lamps that offer patent-protected, OEM-oriented solutions.  We invite you to contact us to learn more about our wide selection of lamps.
