BJB’s superior appliance product portfolio supports an ever-changing industry
February 16, 2021 at 6:18 pm 0

The roughly $500 billion home-appliance industry has been transformed thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and it shows no signs of slowing down. As households have become a more vital hub of activity (due to social distancing) companies have been retrofitting their appliances with sterilizing ultraviolet lights previously used in water purifiers, and companies like Whirlpool have touted washing machines with built-in-heating that removes germs and allergens from your laundry.

As the corona virus hit in late Q1 of 2020, appliances sales went through the roof, as people began to stockpile meats and food. With this increased demand came the necessity to pivot to a new branding of appliance, with hygiene and purity in mind. With these overhaul comes the demand for more appliance lighting, of which BJB is the worldwide leader in servicing. As previously noted, our products are found in many of the most popular brands in the market, and we service both hot and cold appliances.

With the major re-positioning in branding within the appliance industry, and the fact that the 'stay-at-home' environment has compelled households to upgrade their appliances, BJB continues to aggressively service major manufacturers around the world with the solutions that light their appliances, during this time of exponential demand.

Hygiene, smart-homes, and upgrading current appliances due to increase household use has driven this demand, and developing appliances is now done with hygiene and smart homes in minds.

Let's take a look at our products for HOT appliances:

‘Tis the Season For Cooking & BJB Lights Up Your Holiday Appliances
December 23, 2019 at 3:56 pm 0

As many of us gather with family and friends during this festive season, some of us will be indulging in the spirit of the holiday by baking our Turkeys and incorporating ingredients to make our annual sugar cookies taste majestic. While your basting that turkey and sprinkling the sugar on your cookies, remember that BJB has been the market leader in lighting up your oven (as well as many other of your appliances).

For decades, we have been lighting up your appliances. BJB specializes in providing LED lighting solutions, both for domestic and commercial appliances.

Our LED solutions include:

  • Ovens
  • Cooker Hoods
  • Refrigerators
  • Dryers
  • Wash Machines
  • Dishwashers

As technology evolves, BJB has developed a deep knowledge on how to use LEDs in hot environments - e.g. ovens. This has been a major technological advance because LED is an electronic part and so they typically do not perform well in high temperatures and can be permanently damaged.

A Miele Oven Lighting up Your Meal with BJB LED

The advantages of LED in your appliances, of course, is the same as traditional LED light sources...long life-time and no exchange or replacing is typically necessary. Also, different colors sources (CCR) and CRI are possible. The energy and cost-efficiencies are undeniable.

BJB partners with many appliance companies to facilitate LED lighting within appliances. One of these iconic partners is Miele, and they are using lighting together with their vision system.

With 'BrilliantLight', Miele has been backing long-lasting and low-resource LED lighting on an increasing number of models. Depending on the product, the light can be located on the ceiling or in the side panels. To ensure that machine doors open and close gently, wall ovens feature well-balanced hinges (SoftOpen & SoftClose, depending on the model). This too, is a cross-product specification, featuring for instance on combi-units and steam ovens.

Most importantly, the our family at BJB wishes your family a very happy holiday season.

What You May Not Know About BJB’s 150 Year Historic Impact on Lighting
October 13, 2019 at 9:14 pm 0

As the lighting technology continues to evolve, there's one company that's been influencing the industry for over 150 years. That company is BJB. We have been making technology for light since 1867, since petroleum gas was the single source of light, via oil lamps.

It Began with Petroleum Lighting

And it was BJB that produced the necessary accessories, notably the "Kosmos" and "round wick burner". In our initial phase, BJB focused on manufacturing complete petroleum lamps. But eventually, we chose to focus on accessory components, which put us on our historic path to becoming the current world market leader.

Light Goes Electric and so goes BJB

As electricity rapidly spread, a new age was upon us. Major changes impacted the industry. With the evolution to electric, BJB gradually developed the electrical "Bridge to Light", a parallel to our accessory components business within petroleum lights. BJB first produced lamp bases and then, as a result of standardization, the matching lampholders.

First came incandescent lamps, which were later followed by fluorescent, halogen and the various forms of discharge lamps. As the market rapidly evolved, BJB was at the forefront of quality and innovation. BJB earned the title of 'world market leader'.

LED is Here to Stay

Another technical revolution is upon us, and it's called LED. New concepts and flexible innovative designs are possible due to their structural forms and low thermal output. And again, the market had to rethink their position...and the same was true for BJB. New technological solutions were developed for the electrical connection, installation, and fixing of LED boards and COB modules. We are on the cutting edge of LED innovation and automation, as our modular accessory systems enable OEMs to produce individual solutions from electrical, mechanical, and optical components.

Trust from a Historic Brand

No other brand in the lighting industry has established the trust between our partners and clients the way BJB has. No other lighting industry brand has over 150 years of established experience, leading the way with innovative lighting solutions not just through decades, but over a century of historic innovation. Trust is earned by developing quality products that have a high return on investment for our partners. And BJB is proud to continue to lead the way after all these years. And that's why we continue to be 'Technology for Light'.

BJB Attending the African Agri Investment Conference in South Africa, Focused on Vertical Farming Modules
August 25, 2019 at 7:02 pm 0

BJB is excited to showcase our 'vertical farming modules' at the African Agri Conference in November.

The African Agri Investment Indaba (AAII) is the global meeting place for agri-food investment in Africa. Bringing together over 700 key stakeholders – from governments, banks, financiers, investors, project z, project developers, commercial farmers and the agro and food processing industry – to discuss trends that will likely influence food and agribusiness economics over the next decade in Africa.

From Their website: https://www.agri-indaba.com/

Organzied by the African Agri Council in partnership with African governments and government agencies, the Indaba delivers a unique mix of decision makers from across the agri value chain making it the most effective place to conduct business in the sector.

BJB is a major player within the vertical farming industry. Here's why our products stand out: 

The Perfect Light for Any Plant

The LED boards in our modules can be individually adjusted to your plants according to the required wavelength or customer specification, thus laying the basis for optimum plant growth.

Simple to Use

The BJB LED modules are attached quite simply by means of appropriate support elements with clip fasteners. They can be removed without tools. Electrical contact is via a plug-socket system.

Very thin, leaving more room for plants

Thanks to their low installation height of 18 mm and a width of 35 mm, the LED modules are very flat and space-saving. As a result, depending on the system in use, 1-2 additional shelves can be installed, thereby providing more room for plants. Standard modules have a length of approx. 1.20 m.

Protection class IP66 – of course

Our LED modules meet the requirements of protection class IP66 and are therefore adequately protected against strong jets of water. This enables us to achieve optimum performance and service life even under difficult conditions

BJB Has You Covered When It Comes to Lights for Appliances
June 18, 2019 at 12:06 am 0

BJB is a step ahead when it comes to the innovative functions of lighting. And when it comes to implementing creative concepts for domestic appliances, no one does it better than BJB.

WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE LED, lighting technology has changed fundamentally. Variable parameters for CRI, colour temperature and luminous flux, as well as the miniaturisation of components, are opening up completely new possibilities for lighting design in domestic appliances. And because traditional "white goods" are now developing into an integral feature of interior design, large domestic and kitchen appliances are becoming showpieces which impress through their numerous technical functions as well as their innovative lighting concepts

LIGHTING DESIGN MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

This development is also a driving force for BJB engineers in the search for groundbreaking innovations. Our aim is to exploit the potential of the new technology to the full while at the same time meeting the specific demands of various types of domestic appliance. In addition to functional features, such as directional light control, thermal management and energy efficiency, design is playing an increasingly important role.

QUALITY COUNTS

Extractor hoods, ovens, microwaves, refrigerators, washing machines, driers or dishwashers place very different demands on lighting functions. Under the BJB///OEM -Line brand name, we are therefore developing specific solutions for each of the product categories AIR, HOT, COLD and WET, geared to particular types of appliance and oriented to the wishes and expectations of domestic appliance manufacturers all over the world.

EFFICIENCY AND INNOVATION

New light brings new possibilities. In our solutions, extremely compact light sources with high energy efficiency are combined with delicate optical elements for specificlight control. This results in greatly improved versions of familiar designs. But there are also completely new approaches which could not have been achieved with conventional means.

GOOD LIGHT MAKES DOMESTIC APPLIANCES BETTER

In large domestic and kitchen appliances, good light represents a new dimension in the perception of quality. For designers, developers and manufacturers it is therefore becoming a new distinguishing feature and "visible" evidence of innovative thinking.
