High-volume lighting products often require complex and difficult to attach and align optical systems.  These types of systems often require significant assembly labor and can still lack tight position tolerances.  To increase control of light output, precision-placement of engineered optical elements is needed.

CoreLED Systems has developed a family of surface mounted reflectors that provide a variety of beam patterns.  These optical elements can be placed at the same time as the LED on the PCB with standard pick and place equipment.  This keeps the required precise positioning of the optics to the LED in the IR reflow solder process.

This is a considerable cost and space savings at final lamp assembly because it replaces the need for additional components and mounting systems while providing tight tolerances for highly-sensitive optical designs.  CoreLED’s solution is ideal for UV, IR, and visible light LEDs.
