Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) has combined its edge-lit LED light guide technology with
its mass production capabilities to create a new troffer downlight that is slim, light, efficient, and can be
cost effectively manufactured in high volumes.
backlight utilizes advanced light extraction technologies to extract light
precisely where needed, providing bright, uniform light in a thinner form
factor without hot spots or dark areas. The LEDs are spaced along the edge of
the troffer assembly against the light guide to create an assembly measuring
23.5 x 23.5 inches, with a thickness of only 0.35 inches, and a weight of less
than 3 kg (6.6 lbs.).
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
