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.).
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
