At Prilux Group, we incorporate a new low temperature profile welding process into our modules to extend product life.
The LED modules manufactured by the Prilux Group and incorporated in all its luminaires are manufactured to very strict standards to ensure maximum quality.
In the manufacturing process of our Made in Spain products, the most critical phase is welding. This phase is carried out by means of an air convection brazing reflow oven with 14 zones to ensure the most exhaustive temperature control.
Within the soldering phase, electronic components are subjected to temperature stress which can affect the lifetime of the component.
The Prilux Group’s Factory Engineering department has managed to lower the maximum temperature of the welding process by 40ºC, reducing thermal stress. The result of this improvement has been possible thanks to the optimisation of the process and the elements involved in it. At the same time, another beneficial effect has been achieved by almost completely eliminating the dangerous VOIDS or internal bubbles that prevent or reduce the heat transfer or dissipation that occurs during the melting process of solid elements and the evaporation of gases inside the weld. All this translates into a significant improvement in the final quality of the product.
The Prilux Group constantly invests in the control of its entire electronic equipment manufacturing process to guarantee the quality of all the phases into which it is divided. This control consists of the analysis of the solder on the PCB’s through X-rays, in the prototyping phase at the beginning of the product’s life. Once the product and process has been validated, the analysis is repeated once every 6 months for the life of the product. In this way we guarantee smooth operation at all stages of the process. On the other hand, we carry out periodic reviews by external companies of the sensors and elements that make up the machinery, leaving all critical points under control.
