Aluwave AB Pushes Activities in LED Lighting Technology

Aluwave AB signed a development and supply contract for a light engine based on its LED-bearer material Alunat™ and OLP has now signed a development agreement with Aluwave to develop a LED-based light engine for their range of products.

Aluwave AB signs 10 MSEK (1M €) contract for LED light engines built on Alunat™
Aluwave AB today signed a development and supply contract for a light engine based on its LED-bearer material Alunat™. The contract value is estimated to 10 MSEK over four years and the unnamed customer is a European based multinational lighting manufacturer.

With strong requirements on technical solution and quality Aluwave AB was selected and in order to reach high light output in combination with low power consumption and long product life the properties of Alunat™ was required.

“I am very proud to receive this trust in us and our material” says Jonas Stålhandske, CEO, Aluwave AB, and continues “We see that our adaptable Aluwave Light Engines really helps our customers as it simplifies the product development at a low entry cost”. The development has started and commercial launch is expected in the beginning of next year. For more information please contact:

Aluwave AB and Optimal Light Partner AB develops next generation light system with LED and fiber optics
Optimal Light Partner (OLP) has developed a patented fiber optic light system where you can mount a powerful light source separate from where the light leaves the lamp. An example is street lamps with light source mounted at ground level. The main benefit with this is simplified maintenance and that you can protect the light source from extreme environments. The product is commercialised.

Driven by a strong market need OLP has now signed a development agreement with Aluwave to develop a LED-based light engine for their range of products.

Together with Banverket, Swedish Rail Administration, the LED based system will be tested in field trials during the autumn. The project also involves key resources at the Royal Institute of Technology and the Swedish Energy Agency.

About Aluwave AB:
Aluwave AB is an innovative Swedish company specializing in electronics cooling technology and have developed a unique and versatile substrate system called Alunat™. Alunat™ is a ceramic based metal core printed circuit board, MCPCB, and is used for effective cooling of electronic assemblies. Aluwave AB designs and delivers customized LED light engines based on Alunat™ under the brand name “Aluwave Light Engines”.

About Alunat™:
Aluwave’s family of materials for printed circuit board products - AlunatTM – is developed to solve the heat problems of modern electronics. It is based on a ceramic, instead of a polymer layer, between the copper conductors and the aluminium plate. The ceramic layer has excellent thermal conductive and electrical isolating characteristics. AlunatTM is highly suitable for high power LED (Light Emitting Diode) applications. The heat from the LED is very efficiently transported away from the component, allowing it to operate at lower temperature compared to traditional solutions.
