Prerequisites and needs
Specific nature of porcelain manufacturing
The manufacturing process demands a lot of attention and precision. The key lies in illuminating each workspace in a manner that enables employees to work in a safe and comfortable environment, allowing them to notice even the smallest decorative details. Good visibility is mandatory at the workplaces in the Quality Control Department – the temperature and intensity of the light determine if the smallest defects or imperfections will be
left unnoticed. Choosing the right fixture for each section of the facility was very important. The furnace rooms played a crucial role, due to the extremely high ambient temperature reaching up to 60 degrees Celsius. The main
requirements stated by the customer was to adjust the production area to the recommended light levels and foremost to reduce the electricity bill.
Ultima:LED Pro is equipped with a Smart Control system that prevents overheating of the luminaire at high temperatures. When the temperature of the room increases above the maximum specified by the
manufacturer, the luminaire reduces its power, thus lowering its temperature.
Director of research and development department
Individually tailored lighting solutions for each production section
We started our task by conducting a thorough audit, which allowed us to determine the lighting levels standards. By doing this we helped the customer to achieve an energy performance certificate – white certificate – issued throughout energy savings generated as a result of a modernization. The Quality Control Department has been equipped with more than 100 Industrial:LED 4.0 luminaires. The installation was preceded by careful test of various types of cold temperature lights. Due to the nature of the conducted work, the 5700K temperature was
chosen as the best suited for the task, it allowed the workers to notice the slightest flaws or blemishes.
