By the first week of January, Aluwave introduced its own production of LED modules in its new facilities in Mölndal, Sweden. Today, the production is up and running and several deliveries have already been supplied to customers.

”As the LED-technology provides a range of possibilities to fine- tune the light experience and as it is new to many luminaire suppliers, the decision to start up a production of our own was very logic”, says Jonas Stålhandske, CEO at Aluwave.

He continues; ”Now we can offer our customers prototypes quickly and the possibility to change the product specification during the development to a much higher degree. As LED is based on electronic components, manufactures of luminaires are now able to use the properties and functionalities of the light source to create a unique offering. To be able to address these opportunities in this highly innovative and high-tech market is very vital for us”.

Today, the production at Aluwave contains of one production line where LED components are mounted automatically. The turn-around time to customers has been shortened as each batch is now delivered directly to the customer after the final tests.

Stålhandske continues; ”Full control of the production also secures high quality and cost efficiency thanks to the close connection between our design and production units.”

In many industries, traditional lighting sources are now being replaced by efficient LED lighting which increases the demand on the LED market.

By 2020, LED will have replaced traditional lighting sources in the majority of all lighting globally and represent about 60% of the total global lighting sales. The largest increase will take place in the segment of General Lighting which includes the residential market.
