ALERTE NOUVEAU PRODUIT : LE MODULE IM-5400

L.E.S.S. SA lance son nouveau produit d'éclairage d'inspection dédié aux machines et aux bras articulés ou robotisés : le module IM-5400.

Après l'immense succès de son produit d'éclairage d'inspection phare - la Spiral IL-5400-V2.0 - L.E.S.S. propose dorénavant une version modulaire qui peut être facilement adaptée et interfacée avec un bras articulé ou sur une machine.

Le module conserve toutes les caractéristiques et accessoires de la Spiral, qui sont notamment une lumière ultra-directionnelle, aucune dissipation de chaleur et une boite à lumière permettant un contrôle extrêmement précis quelle que soit la lumière ambiante.

Ce Module swiss made a été développé pour répondre aux attentes industrielles les plus exigeantes : l’IM-5400 est facile à utiliser, peu encombrant et particulièrement mobile. Par ailleurs, l'uniformité, la luminosité, la directionnalité et la colorimétrie offre une qualité constante de la lumière tout au long de la durée de vie du système.

Grâce à la technologie développée par L.E.S.S. et intégrée dans cette lampe grossissante, de nombreuses industries tel que le secteur médical, pharmaceutique, l'horlogerie ou encore d’outillage, pourront bénéficier d’un contrôle qualité et d’une inspection visuelle à la fois bien plus fiables, plus rapide et plus aisés.
