VLUX develops and produces a new outdoor lighting fitting

VLUX with sites in Landen and Engis produces lighting equipment. The company is mainly known for its weather-resistant linear lighting fittings for industrial applications. VLUX applies various technologies including injection moulding, extrusion, thermoforming and pressure forming to manufacture its products. VLUX also provides assembly and electrical systems, thus selling end products ready to be used.

 

The outdoor lighting range is very extensive. Recently, a new asset was added: the ELX, a new type of IP65 fitting (dust and spray proof). This concerns a watertight linear LED device. This new lighting device was developed in consultation with the Sirris Production Development Hub. The two companies organised various brainstorming sessions together and cooperated to determine the required specifications. Technological advice was also provided to allow VLUX to find solutions on its own.

 

The outside of the device is fully made of plastic. The body is produced by means of extrusion and the end caps through injection moulding. Next, the end caps are glued on to the extrusion profile.

 

The new ELX outdoor lighting fitting was officially presented at the 2018 Light + Building trade fair.
