LEDs are revolutionizing the way industrial machines are illuminated and used. From woodworking to industrial, large-scale sewing operations, units with such applications must be capable of withstanding a wide range of extreme elements. In addition to close contact with flying debris, LED machine light should be able to stand up to high temperatures, abrasive cleaning agents (from washdown sessions) and more. Below compares linear LED machine lights and flexible LED machine lights for industrial facilities.
Linear LED Machine Lights
Linear LED machine lights are slim, LED lamps that are typically installed close to the processing area of the machine. For instance, such luminary can be setup to illuminate an object that is being cut on the machine. These type of lights are non-flexible, in a sense that the units are permanently fixed. The LED fixtures can be dimmable.
Moreover, the lights could also be incorporated with various parts of operation. An example of this is setting up a UV or infrared LED machine light to identify labels properly on specific components during machining. An LED machine light may be used as a workstation light, depending on the type of tasks being conducted.
Flexible LED Machine Light
A flexible LED machine light contains an LED light head and a flexible mounting component, which could be a pivoting arm, an adjustable bracket or a gooseneck – just to name a few. In industrial machining, this type of fixture may serve multiple purposes. The lamp is very effective for inspections and quality assurance on the assembly floor.
Flexible LED machine units may be equipped with spotlight beam configurations for detailed tasks. Additionally, the lights are typically waterproof and low voltage. High-color temperature ratings are preferred, in order to improve clarity. Battery-powered variants for this type of LED machine light may also serve as a portable workstation light.…
