Texas Injection Molding is uniquely positioned to add value to our customers in the areas of Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology through a partnership with Xtralight manufacturing. Xtralight Manufacturing has been manufacturing lighting for more than 30 years, shares our entrepreneurial spirit and has proven to be extremely responsive and easy to work with on engineering new products. The Xtralight Engineering and Manufacturing campus is directly adjacent to our Technical Center and plastic molding facilities. Their lighting engineering facility provides a creative environment for collaboration and new product development. The lighting technology center provides the opportunity to demonstrate various technologies and consideration of lighting applications. Some of the applications that are routinely incorporated into the LED Lighting products include:
- Solar power and battery storage for remote applications or applications not connected to a power source
- Programmable lighting applications responsive to motion or activated by touch or programs.
- Varieties of colors allow for static or dynamic changes in light color.
LED technology is rapidly bringing the benefits of low cost lighting options to a variety of products in many industries. LED lighting technology has given designers new imaginative options to bring lighting to applications never before possible. LEDs are much more energy efficient, significantly extend the service life and are environmentally sound. The more efficient lamps are allowing for new designs of traditional lighting products and numerous new applications previously not practical or possible with traditional lamp technology. We have seen opportunities to add LED technology to safety products, fire arms, consumer products and industrial controls allowing brand owners to distinguish their products and add value to the end user. The market acceptance has been accelerating as manufacturing cost of the lamps have plummeted. To meet the fast growing engineering demands material manufacturers are investing in the development of transparent, light diffusing, flame retardant, thermally conductive and reflective grades of materials for many end use LED lighting products. The market will continue to grow as injection molded components with new materials reduce the component costs of housings, heat sinks, sockets and reflectors.
