General Manager for Global Commercial Markets at Luminus Devices.


“The module is based on Luminus Big Chip LED technology, which provides our lighting customers with the opportunity to develop creative and differentiated high performance fixtures. We are seeing real innovation in the marketplace with the technology, such as indirect lighting fixtures that are low glare and eliminate multi-source shadowing,” he continues.


Michael Handerhan, General Manager of T-Opto, adds “Field upgradeability is a real key to the strategy behind the SoloLux. As LED performance continues to improve, fixture performance can be upgraded by replacing the chip-on-board LED with a standard screw driver. The benefits to our customers in accelerating time to market are obvious, as the SoloLux comes with integrated heat sinking and an electrical interface to standard ballasts. In addition, we have created reference designs for our customers, including custom optics, for targeted applications such as outdoor area lighting and high bay.”


SoloLux is available in colour temperatures ranging from warm to cool, and is in process of attaining LM-79, UL1598 and ULIP66 accreditations.


SoloLux will be available for sampling this summer with volume availability shortly thereafter.


Aalberts aids LED, semiconductor and solar energy markets


By buying out Dutch based firm Lamers, Aalberts has the opportunity to expand its market position in the LED production and solar energy market and selling other products, systems and processes through Lamers’ sales channels.


Aalberts Industries N.V. has reached an agreement with the Air Liquide group to acquire 100% of the shares of Lamers High Tech Systems B.V. (Lamers) in the Netherlands subject to antitrust clearance.


Since 1984 Lamers has been active in the development, engineering, manufacturing,

assembling, testing and qualification of systems for control and distribution of high purity gases and chemicals. The systems are used in photolithography systems supplied to the semiconductor industry and MOCVD equipment supplied to the LED industry. The systems of Lamers are also used in the manufacturing process of photovoltaic systems for the solar energy industry.


The LED and solar markets are fast growing renewable energy markets, where Industrial Services strives to increase its market share. Besides this, Lamers is active in the installation of high purity distribution networks for gases and fluids, as well as hook-up activities.


Lamers generates an annual revenue of approximately €90 million with around 300 employees at its two manufacturing facilities in the Netherlands, Nijmegen and Kerkrade. The experienced management team will continue to manage Lamers on both locations together with the existing employees.


Lamers’ systems are engineered in close cooperation with the customers from design to start up. Lamers delivers fully or semi-automated systems, in-house and on the customer site, using its large experience in the field of high purity tube systems, valves, fittings, sensors and flow measuring instruments.


The high purity systems are used to inject a specific mixture of gas with the exact specified temperature, pressure, humidity and purity to the different manufacturing process steps in the photolithography and MOCVD equipment. Lamers uses high-tech manufacturing processes such as (semi-) automatic welding processes of tubes systems, computer aided tube bending and the newest technology in the field of testing and qualification, such as particle- and moisture measurement, as well as helium leak testing under vacuum. This is all realised in a clean room environment.


The acquisition of Lamers is in line with Aalberts Industries’ strategy of enhancing its position in the Industrial Services activity benefiting from the following features:


-Lamers will reinforce Aalberts Industries’ position
