BJB Showcases Advances in the Manufacturing Process of LED Luminaires at the 2018 Light & Building Trade Fair
March 24, 2018 at 2:00 am 0

With over 200,000 visitors at the 2018 Light & Building Trade Fair in Frankfurt Germany, BJB showcased an impressive demonstration of our robotic manufacturing solutions for advanced luminaire production. Our unmatched lighting technology enables the integration of innovative components and optics with smart automation technology, thus enabling LED luminaires to be manufactured fast and efficiently.

As originally posted at BJB.com - Press Release

BJB's automated machines, which feature a modular design, are offered not only for linear and area lighting needs, but also for spot and downlight applications. Everything from assembly of complex components, to wiring and testing are possible with BJB’s trademark ADS machines.

It Takes 9 Seconds!

So how long do the automation machines from BJB take to assemble a luminaire with the most advanced lighting technologies? Nine seconds! That’s all it takes for BJB’s automated assembly and wiring machine to manufacture spot and downlight fixtures. In this short amount of time, heat sinks, TIM foil, COBs, connectors for COBs and reflectors are fitted “spot on”.

LED Lighting Components

BJB offers a variety of innovative LED lighting components, such as COB connectors, which are vital, enabling-technology for COB light sources, designed for optimal heat sink attachment, power supply and secondary optic integration. BJB’s product range includes connectors for more than 130 different types of COBs from world leading LED partner manufacturers. BJB’s offers the most advanced and comprehensive range of LED connection technology which are compatible with over 80 percent of all COBs offered on the world market.

BJB says it sees the reflectors and optical devices designed for targeted light direction as an ideal complement to their range of COB connectors. BJB has also advanced the way in which their COB connectors are fixated to heat sinks, by developing an innovative push-to-fix fixing element specifically for blind hole heat sink applications. Thanks to this smart solution, COB modules can be easily fastened to the heat sinks reliably, fast and without threading, helping to improve the thermal management of the entire lighting system.

BJB Automation for Linear Luminaire

And yet another BJB device attracted particular attention at the Light & Building fair, namely an automated machine for linear luminaire assembly: In the first step, a circuit board is installed in the luminaire housing. The distinguishing feature of this BJB product is that the required SMD-P2F fixing elements are already integrated to the LED board via the standard SMT process. This means the LED boards are ready for snap-in attachment without any additional components, which saves time and reduces production complexity for the OEM lighting manufacturer.

Automation of linear luminaires

In the next step, the optics are fitted. BJB’s optical devices also come with added value because of their remarkable ease of installation: The single-row optics feature an integrated fastening system allowing them to be fitted seamlessly to the luminaire housing. With an installation height of about 11 mm, the high-precision optics are very flat and compact in design. They are available in five varieties for different light distribution patterns.

Once the circuit boards and optics have been mounted and the luminaire has been rotated for the next step in the assembly process, the robot proceeds to wire the LED circuit boards for power connection via BJB’s rear-mounted SMD push-through terminal block together with the driver (electronic control gear). This process, too, is accomplished “in no time” with unparalleled accuracy: the cycle period is only 68 seconds.

Leaders in Horticultural LED Lighting

And when the lighting experts from Arnsberg, Germany introduced their newest horticulture lighting product for vertical farming at the trade fair, people across the industry took notice and were very impressed! BJB now offers lighting solutions for urban farming - Wow! This is a future-oriented technology that aims to bring sustainable agriculture to the world’s metropolitan areas.

Horticulture shelf with urban farming modules from BJB

Urban farming is all about the cultivation of vegetables and herbs in greenhouses integrated into high-rise buildings – regardless of weather conditions, without the use of insecticides or pesticides and, above all, close to consumers and thus environmentally friendly: Since there is no need for transport, there are no polluting CO2 emissions, either. Yet light is neededfor plants in urban greenhouses to grow for the common good – and this is where BJB comes into play: BJB lighting experts led by their in-house biologist have been hard at work conducting in-depth research to identify the optimum light spectrum for plant photosynthesis and the optimal modular product.BJB’s urban farming range includes red-blue and red-white LED lighting solutions, integrated in a compact, easy-to-use modular system that’s IP66 rated.
