Spectrum Lighting is committed to manufacturing high-quality, attractive and functional architectural lighting products that combine design integrity, functionality and energy efficiency. Our focus is on thoughtful design that complements the visual environment, enhances comfort and ambiance, and adds value to our clients and business associates. We are a vertically integrated manufacturer, controlling every aspect of production, from fabrication through assembly with heart felt dedication, in the United States to ensure design integrity and consistently deliver a high level of quality and service.
Our engineering, product design and support teams design leading edge products with all industrial, electrical, optical and mechanical design done in house. These teams also help develop special or custom products and supply post sale support.
The photometric lab is responsible for measuring the optical performance of all of Spectrum’s new, variant, and custom luminaires. This includes not only luminous intensities, but a plethora of color data, and even flicker data.
Heat Test Lab
The heat lab is probably one of the most critical facets of Spectrum Lighting. Nothing affects luminaire life more than high heat. Each fixture (driver, emitter, heat sink, and enclosed ambient temperature) is carefully monitored. Excessive heat over manufacturer’s recommended limits is what the heat lab checks to monitor safety and longevity of luminaires.
Spectrum Lighting’s Tool and Die Machine Shop is where many of our products are started and take shape (literally) at the hands of our skilled craftsmen. The machine shop has several high speed machining centers to produce press and spin tooling, LED heat sinks as well as turning, milling, EDM and other operations.
Our laser cutting machines are used for precision cutting in a wide range of projects.
The metal spinning shop produces optical reflectors, recessed trims, light fixture housings, canopies, cylinders and a host of other parts. There is a long history of metal spinning process in our area dating back to pre-revolutionary war metal smiths (Paul Revere Sr. of New Bedford, MA). Our spinning is performed by skilled craftsmen on hand spinning lathes as well as automated machines.
Spectrum Lighting prides itself on in house fabrication with TIG, MIG, arc and spot welding. This process allows us to finish fixtures, trims and housings to a high standard. Wall arms, brackets and other structural lighting components are also fabricated and formed in this department.
Spectrum’s Press Department is the place to go if you want something flattened, punched out or formed. Spectrum has over 75 manual, hydraulic and mechanical presses to draw, form and finish our spun and stamped parts. All tooling is produced and maintained in house. Many of our machines are purpose built in house for our products.
Spectrum lighting runs a state of the art powder coat process with a five stage chromate pretreat and multi stage oven. Three booths are fed so we are able to run multiple colors on a given day. Spectrum also has a custom “wet” booth for special finishes and paints.
Spectrum Assembly Center is best described as a Human Centric system. With independent work cells, rather than fixed assembly lines, we are able to provide more interesting work to our teams as well as turn out multiple products on each work cell.
We partner with our suppliers and treat them as we do our customers which gives a us leg up on shipping. We value having the freedom and flexibility to quickly meet your lighting needs and deliver solutions that bring your vision to life.
