1-click-fixing, BJB – Technology for Light, Lighting Components, Optics
Showcasing our latest products: Optics with 1-Click Fixing System (Pitch Dependent and Pitch Independent)
June 8, 2021 at 3:44 am 0

Even though our latest trade fair has been postponed, it doesn't stop the innovation at BJB. Today, we want to showcase one of our current innovations:

BJB presents a new range of single-row optics that can be assembled faster than ever before, thanks to innovative 1-click fixing. The optics connect to the LED module in a single step - without tools, screws or other mounting elements. Centering pins and spacers position and fix the circuit board and optics securely and in the correct position on the luminaire metal sheet or aluminum profile. The end caps provide a clean finish.

In addition to efficient assembly, BJB optics with 1-click fixing provide optimum operational safety. The optics meet all requirements for NON-SELV applications. Made from impact-resistant PC, the optics cannot be dismantled without tools. The BJB optic system meets all requirements for protection against electric shock by utilizing a key and slot system that provides additional contact protection.

The new BJB optics are available in two versions: The pitch-dependent optics of the 35.324 series ensure particularly low glare, while the pitch-independent optics of the 35.301 series offer maximum flexibility in light control and module selection.

The Highlight:

Optics with 1-Click-Fixing-System: Pitch Dependent and Pitch Independent Optics. The 35.324 and 35.301 optics offer BJB's unmatched hallmark advantages:

  • Easy, tool-free installation with just one end cap for both optic series
  • Seamless sequencing and superlative safety
  • And the best bit: The new 1-click attachment

Perfect for Retail and Commercial

Optics are essential for light distribution and control. Individual lighting requirement are met by utilizing BJB optics to vary illumination properties. Of particular importance in optic design is compatibility with a wide-range of LED modules and low glare, indicated by UGR value.

The pitch-dependent optics of the 35.324 series are particularly low-glare and provide a homogeneous light appearance due to the optimised microstructure surface. The 35.324 series optics are specifically designed for applications in which require a high level of focused illumination.

The BJB 35.301 series of pitch-independent optics provides flexibility for luminaire manufacturers to select LED modules ranging from 20 - 24 mm in width.

Whether using single fixtures or continuous rows of luminaires, BJB optics provide precise lighting performance, essential for meeting the requirements of retail and commercial applications. BJB designed the Single-Row Optics with 1-Click Fixing for optimal performance in the lighting of aisles, corridors, parking garages, warehouses, workstations, and general lighting in supermarkets

Quick & safe assembly!
With new fixing system

Until now, the assembly of optics and circuit boards required at least two work steps and additional fastening elements or screws. BJB’s 1-click optics offer a dramatically improved alternative. With our new system, LED modules and optics are assembled without tools or screws in one single work step. Our optics are equipped with centering pins and spacers that align the optics correctly on the board and firmly connects them. Both the 35.324 series and the 35.301 series use identical end caps on the left and right, which further facilitates assembly and production.

Our single-row optics score points not only with quick assembly, but also for very secure fastening.
Once the board and optics have been assembled, the locking mechanism can only be released with the help of tools from the bottom side. If several optics are mounted in a row, the Key & Slot System ensures gapless joints.

This feature provides added protection against accidental contact qualifying the optics for NON-SELV applications.

Another advantage of our new optics family is their versatility. The position of the fixing elements are
designed in accordance to the fixing points outlined in Zhaga Book 7. As all optics have the same fixing mechanism, multiple optics will fit one housing, allowing for great flexibility while using one housing platform

Kunststoff-Laser-Sintern – BJB Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing
May 7, 2021 at 4:56 pm 0

Die Technologie: Laser-Sintern als Schlüssel für e-Manufacturing

Laser-Sintern ist bekannt als die Technologie für den kürzesten Weg von der Idee zur Marktreife eines Produktes. Innovative Unternehmen der unterschiedlichsten Branchen nutzen das Verfahren für e-Manufacturing - die schnelle, flexible und kostengünstige Produktion direkt aus elektronischen Daten für alle Phasen des Produktlebenszyklus.

Physikalisches Prinzip:

Grundlegendes Prinzip des Laser-Sinterns ist das schichtweise Verschmelzen von Kunststoffpulver durch einen CO2-Laser. Der Laser erhitzt das Kunststoffpulver kurzzeitig auf eine Temperatur oberhalb des Schmelzpunkts. Durch diese Erhitzung und die nachfolgende Abkühlung entsteht ein Festkörper. In jeder Schicht wird der Querschnitt der Bauteile mit dem Laserstrahl so belichtet, das die belichteten Stellen mit der darunterliegenden, bereits verfestigten Schicht, verbunden werden. So entstehen Schicht für Schicht dreidimensionale Bauteile.

Allgemeines Funktionsprinzip des Laser-Sinterns:

Bauprozess:

Für den Bauprozess wird der verfahrbare Boden eines Baubehälters in eine obere Startposition gefahren und mit einer dünnen Schicht Polyamidpulver beschichtet. Diese Schicht wird durch eine Heizung auf eine Grundtemperatur erwärmt und durch Belichten mit einem rechnergesteuerten Laserstrahl wird das Kunststoffpulver analog der berechneten Geometrie verfestigt. Danach wird der Boden um eine Schichtdicke abgesenkt und eine neue Pulverschicht aufgetragen. Erneut wird das Pulver erwärmt und belichtet, der Boden abgesenkt und Kunststoffpulver aufgetragen. Durch ständiges Wiederholen dieses Ablaufs entsteht das im losen Pulver liegende Bauteil.


Modelle für einen Entwicklungsprozess

Modelle für einen Entwicklungsprozess


Kleinserie eines KFZ-Tools

Unser Fazit:

Mit dem Einsatz von Kunststoff-Lasersintersystemen haben wir bei BJB bereits während der Entwicklung unsere Produkte buchstäblich „in der eigenen Hand“. Somit erkennen wir bereits im Vorfeld wo es Probleme geben könnte.

Für Kleinserien können wir sehr wirtschaftlich, komplett ohne Werkzeugkosten auf Lasersinterteile setzen. Flammgeschützt oder Glasfaserverstärkt erfüllen diese Teile auch höchste technische Anforderungen.

Our CT Laboratory: Layer by Layer 3D Views

X-Ray computed tomography is familiar to most from a medical perspective, but is also increasingly applied in the industrial sector for non-destructive analysis. It gives exceptional insight into the internal and external geometries of any products and components, and works with a wide variety of materials as plastic, metal and ceramics.

The system in our CT laboratory composes a layer by layer 3D volume model with highly detailed information, even for complex assemblies.

The resulting model makes analysis of a variety of specifications much easier:

  • Weak points and errors can clearly be identified
  • Dimensional tolerance scan be tightly controlled
  • Detection of deformed components during the product assembly
  • Voids in injection-molded plastic components can be discovered

3D Scan Technology & Measurement

BJB's optical 3D scan technology can provide three different stereo systems by GOM to provide the best analysis results of large-volume components and materials with high radiological densities.

The sensors provide evenly distributed 3D coordinates for each individual measurement. Up to 12 million independent measuring points are recorded within seconds. The measurement data is characterized by high detail reproduction, so that even very small component features can be measured.

The measurement data enables:

  • CAD false colour comparison (variance comparison)
  • Full dimensional check reports
  • Assembly analyses
  • Porosity and inclusion analysis (shrinkage cavity analysis)
  • Complete measurement test reports

By using industrial computed tomography at BJB, we can better control the quality and safety of materials, parts and components in advance of series production.

With the experience we have gained from our own production, we can provide you with the following BJB measurement technology services in the field of CT and stereo camera measurement technology.

  • Complete measurement test reports 
  • Module analyses
  • Troubleshooting / defect detection
  • Films of CT data or x-ray data
  • Films of 3D CT rendering
  • Contract analyses with GOM Inspect Pro and VG Studio Max also of your CT or STL datasets
  • Reverse engineering on the basis of CT or camera datasets

Industrial Computed Tomography

This technology can be used for the non-destructive analysis of any component. The aim is to create a data model on which computerized analyses are carried out.

Important analyses include:

- CAD false colour comparison (target-actual comparison)
- Assembly analyses
- Porosity and inclusion analysis (shrinkage cavity analysis) 
- Complete measurement test reports

To create the data models, the component is x-rayed in the CT system. An x-ray image is produced. The component is then rotated in the x-ray beam and up to 3,500 x-ray images are recorded in the course of the rotation. These x-ray images are used to calculate the tomographic slices and the 3D model of the component on which the analyses can then be carried out.

Bottom line, we are specialists in mastering difficult problems in the fields of measurement technology, research, development and design as well as quality assurance and complaints processing. Put us to the test!
