BJB Accelerates Arrival of Automated Manufacturing Era at Light + Building 2014

Located at Hall 4.0, lampholder and connector manufacturer BJB displayed its latest connectors, lampholders and automated equipment, at Light + Building 2014 in Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Center in Germany.

In contrast to previous lighting shows where BJB only displayed in-house manufactured lampholders and connectors, the company showcased at this year’s show newly developed or co-developed light engines with clients, said Jacky Liu, Vice General Manager, BJB Electric Taiwan Corp. 

Due to the quickly evolving lighting market, passive models of waiting for clients to develop lampholders or connectors can no longer meet market demands. Therefore, BJB has started to actively promote in-house developed light engines and share with clients. By doing so the company aims to stimulate common specification development.

BJB has especially designed a new socketable light engine, the Linear Flat System, for luminaire manufacturers and consumers. The system is packaged as a light engine module and with the latest lampholder. The design is innovative, simplistic, and makes maintenance and changing modules more convenient. The product has been well received by clients. The light engine module was co-developed with Osram, LG, Zega and other manufacturers to enable interchangeability in the market.

The company’s in-house developed Spotlight Light Engine uses AC LED design framework, and is a Driver on Board (DOB) COB module, which is a design that incorporates the driver onto a ceramic substrate.

Perfectly detailed designs

BJB’s panel light connector design places SMD socket behind the PCB plate to make connecting power modules more convenient. The design also avoids driver power impact on LED luminaires luminous efficacy. The simplified design has been well received.

To make installation easier for lighting manufacturers or end-users, BJB also introduced many new design concepts into its existing connectors. For instance Push to Fix (P2F) emphasizes a component can be fixed into place by simply pushing it in, which completes the fixing process for a panel.

Simplified designs also meet the trend for automated manufacturing. An increasing number of people have mentioned automated manufacturing process for luminaires. In terms of simplified designs, BJB has developed many components including Board to Board (B2B) that simplifies connecting panel lights and light strips.

Aside from simplifying components, the company also launched many automated equipment to meet lighting manufacturers demands. For example, an equipment could use 3M glue to paste on flexible Osram lighting strips. An automated robotic arm could coil the flexible light strip into place and cut it into pieces onto the luminaire. The luminaire production process can be shortened using this method.

BJB was founded in 1867. Twelve years earlier than the invention of Thomas Edison’s incandescent light bulb. BJB entered the lighting industry by initially manufacturing kerosene lamp wicks. Since World War I, the company became widely known for its fluorescent lampholder G13. In 1995 to 1996 BJB and Philips jointly announced the new generation T5 tube light and lampholders. BJB and Osram has started to develop a series of LED connector products in 2001, which kicked off the company’s LED business. 

BJB launched its first welding free LED connector that is suitable for all types of Star Board LED. By 2009 to 2010, the company launched a welding free COB connector, and began designing a series of COB projector lamp connectors that met Zhaga specs. This year, BJB has made a century breakthrough in the research, development and manufacturing of socketable light engines. The company hopes the development can bring new opportunities to the LED lighting industry.
