Quality @ acdc
Although the design of a product is hugely important, the quality of the manufacturing process that follows represents the key in delivering long life LED lighting solutions.
Each and every acdc luminaire is designed and manufactured at our UK HQ in the North of England with the highest degree of care and attention to detail. Our team of skilled product designers, technicians and engineers select only the highest quality materials, components and the latest manufacturing machinery and techniques to produce our luminaires, so it is not surprising that acdc have an excellent reputation for quality.
Aerospace grade components
Our LED housings are equally as critical as the LED source incorporated within our luminaires, both in terms of thermal management and aesthetical appearance. We incorporate the finest T6 aluminium to deliver a truly world class LED product which will perform appropriately throughout their lifetime.
Furthermore, we utilise the very latest in CNC surface mount machinery, including 5-axis Horizontal CNC Machining Centres, CNC Lathes and CNC Mill/Turn Centres, to manufacture components to aerospace standards. Indeed, the accuracy and quality of manufacture from these machines is accurate to 1/1000th of a millimetre, delivering a guaranteed quality which is consistently excellent.
These machines not only allow us to manufacture parts to the highest level of accuracy but also deliver high volume, consistent quality components to our assembly lines in good lead times.
We are all too aware that our products are installed in some pretty tricky environments. As such, the surface finish of our LED luminaires is equally important, with specialist paint or anodised finish applied to the product to ensure they can cope with the most rugged environments.
Confidence inspiring quality
The finish and quality of every acdc LED luminaire is not only carefully checked and inspected through our own rigorous quality systems, but are also independently tested to certify their performance, in terms of lumen output, ingress protection and thermal management along with electrical performance.
Indeed, we are so confident in the quality of our luminaires that all are supplied with a 5 year back to base guarantee.
