As the demand for enriched user experiences and sleeker technology shows no signs of abating, engineering and design teams, across a range of industries, are requiring thinner and more advanced lighting solutions to meet their design needs.
Although existing LED light products are often used, today’s design requirements require backlighting solutions that offer greater design possibilities. The result is that companies are always on the lookout for new backlighting solutions that can provide their products with a competitive edge.
From reigning in the cost of development to permitting new design possibilities and other benefits, Lumifilm® technology has set itself apart from traditional backlighting solutions to usher in a new era of design freedom. Whether the application relates to human machine interfaces, membrane switches, retail displays, decoration, signage, smart-touch surfaces or other electromechanical systems, Lumifilm® ensures even illumination through uniform backlighting that avoids hot spots and shadowed areas.
Based on the principle of light guide film, this technology enables the creation of ultra-thin backlighting systems. Light is injected inside a thin film by a light-emitting diode (LED) source which is attached to the edge of the film.
The surface of the film contains printed dot patterns, which are obtained through a screen printing process. When the light diffuses across the surface and hits the printed dots pattern, it creates an illumination effect optimized in a way that ensures a uniform light output. This helps the light sheet avoid problems, such as hot spots and shadowed areas.
