OMC boosts capacity for Profiled display backlight products

Business news |
Optoelectronics and LED lighting manufacturer OMC (Redruth, UK) has invested in new equipment at its Cornwall manufacturing centre to support an increased demand for its Profiled LED backlighting technology. According to the company, Profiled backlights make it financially viable for designers requiring displays for mid and low volume applications to be able to specify a full-custom display – both in colour and shape – as set-up charges are minimal and MOQs are very low.

OMC’s commercial director William Heath said the company sees an upturn in demand for its backlights from multiple sectors including handheld instrumentation, POS and general industrial applications where customers see a benefit in having a unique brand identity which is only achievable using a custom display. Therefore OMC invested in new, bespoke plant and machinery, effectively increasing its capacity by 50%.

OMC claims that its Profiled backlight technology frequently offers an economic option for production volumes under 10,000 pieces. The technology ensures that consistent illumination is provided across the entire display. The displays can feature single or dual chip LEDs depending on power output availability and requirements, and they are available in a range of single colours including blue and white as well as full RGB. Complementing a standard product range which numbers over 250 different sizes, OMC can turn around bespoke-shaped backlight samples in as little as five working days with set up costs starting as low as £50. OMC supports its customers during the design process to simplify module design and assembly costs by integrating assembly features into the backlights.
