Do you rely on parts inspection? Consider Going Green.
Why Green Lighting?
Visual inspection of parts can be significantly improved with colored LED lighting from Banner, which provides the bright, flicker-free illumination necessary for detecting blemishes and other imperfections before they get expensive.
Inspecting plastic or metal parts with green light provides superior contrast and detection of imperfections like fingerprint residue or scratches, helping prevent costly recalls and other hangups caused by inspection oversights.
One Barnum customer is successfully applying this method in the detection of oil in tail light assemblies. If left undetected and unaddressed, the residue can cause the metalized paint within each assembly to fish-eye, which can result in recalls and additional inspection measures that waste product and cut into profits.
For plants currently using fluorescent or white LED lighting to check for problems like this, green lighting can improve visibility and save the headaches and expenses that result from unidentified part imperfections.
Other Color Applications and Features
Need to illuminate a workstation or cell? Banner’s white and other-colored area lighting products are extremely bright and energy-efficient, providing reliable lighting in a variety of contexts. In fact, customers have chosen to replace all fluorescents in these areas because of the significantly improved visibility provided by LEDs. Many models are also equipped with a potentiometer for added versatility.
Or, use red or combine red and green for operator presence and machine status applications with longer-distance visibility or floor illumination.
