Equipment and Supplies

The production of light sources, lamps and luminaires involves the use of a wide range of specialized manufacturing equipment. The manufacturing equipment for LED products include, but not limited to, metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) epitaxial growth, wafer processing, LED packaging, surface mount technology (SMT) assembling, and PCB fabrication and assembly equipment. Testing and inspection equipment includes end-of-line electrical, photometric, and accelerated aging test equipment such as integrating spheres, integrating photometers, physical photometers, spectrophotometers, spectroradiometers, goniophotometers, photometers, colorimeters, illuminance meters, densitometers, environmental test chambers, EMC/EMI test equipment, surge generators, salt spray test equipment, etc. Discussion in this board also covers supplies used in the production of light sources, lamps and luminaires.
