At e2ip, we offer a variety of printed lighting solutions but there is one technology in particular that stands out for its innovative features: Lumifilm™. Based on the principle of thin light guides, this technology enables the creation of ultra-thin backlighting systems. Lumifilm™ can be used as a backlighting source for applications such as display, signage, decoration, annunciations, and more.The principle behind Lumifilm™ technology is simple, yet powerful. Light is injected by a light-emitting diode (LED) source inside a thin film. This light is then conducted via Total Internal Reflection (TIR) and extracted locally with printed dots. The dot pattern is optimized with a proprietary algorithm to ensure a uniform light output, avoiding hot spots and shadowed areas.
Specifically engineered to be integrated into the thinnest application, Lumifilm™ offers greater design possibilities, even when the space between components may be highly limited. Non-recurring engineering and production costs are remarkably low – eliminating the need to invest in certain hard tools such as molds.
Lumifilm™ is a custom solution which can be applied virtually anywhere, including but not limited to the aerospace, medical, telecommunications, wearables, transportation and defense industries. LEDs are available in a variety of colors and can be customized into any desirable shape. Lumifilm™ is designed and delivered with consistency of brightness.
As part of our printed lighting solutions, we have developed EL lamps that are available in different shapes, sizes, and colors. EL lamps can be used as a backlighting option for applications such as lighting, advertisement, and display or can be integrated into a keypad assembly. This technology is a cost-effective solution and offers a very low power consumption compared to standard lighting options. It can be shaped to be extremely flat, or in narrow wire-like shapes providing outstanding light uniformity.
Electronics should not get in the way of design freedom.
