Quality products “Made in Germany”

EVERYTHING IS FIRMLY IN JB’S HANDS!


From development to series production

Unlike many other companies, we have gone the furthest in incorporating the individual production steps in our production process. JB-Lighting is the only manufacturer in Germany that independently develops intelligent moving lights with LED technology for professional use – on approx. 2,500 m2 of production space – and manufacturers everything in-house except for a few components. We don’t just do the final assembly on site, but all the related steps in manufacturing – from development and design, to prototyping, mechanical series production, and further processing of electronic parts.

No compromises in quality, performance or efficiency

All steps in work and production are always completed with a quality and function check of the manufactured parts, so that any potential defects are virtually excluded in the preliminary stages.
Due to the continuous upgrading and flexible construction of our entire production facility, we are not only able to manufacture in a very demand-oriented way, but also react to trends in the lighting industry with flexibility at any time, act independently of suppliers to the greatest extent possible and promote our developments.


With JB-Lighting, “Made in Germany” is guaranteed

Because we best meet our quality standards with our own well-trained staff, we decided to carry out as many production steps in-house as possible. While the final assembly and a limited manufacturing facility had already been incorporated at JB-Lighting from the beginning, other departments were established and expanded over the course of the last 20 years.
This means we’re in a position to effectively meet our standards and your requirements regarding design, excellent technology, functionality, processing, performance and service life.


Short paths and decision-making processes throughout the entire production operation

We are therefore able to determine the most effective paths to production for a spotlight in advance. For this reason, we can offer our products in a price segment that is not a matter of course for German brand-name products.
This has allowed us to develop a solid and satisfied customer base whose feedback is vital for further developing our products.
In the following, there is an overview of our departments and the respective production steps. Comprehensive quality and function tests are carried out at the end of each manufacturing process.

DEVELOPMENT

Work steps from the initial ideas to the prototype
  • Project studies, market and requirements analysis by our development team
  • Development and design of mechanics, electronics and unit design by experienced engineers and technicians with the aid of modern CAD software/hardware
  • 3D simulation and calculation (CFD program)
  • Development/programming of unit software
  • Extensive tests in our in-house testing lab up to series production and CE certification
  • In-house prototype construction

  • Manufacture of gears for series production
  • Mechanical cleaning of sheet metal parts as preparation for further work steps, e.g. bonding
Work steps in sheet metal shaping
  • Stamping and straightening of sheet metal parts
  • Pressing in insertion tools such as nuts, bolts, sockets, etc.
  • Edges
  • Embossing or screen printing
  • Regrinding of punching tools
  • Laser cutting of sheet metal parts

PCB ASSEMBLY

  • Manual assembly on the assembly table
  • Soldering over the wave solder bath
  • Assembly of displays
  • Equipping of LED boards with lenses
  • Soldering on cables
  • Import of software
Quality control
  • Each board undergoes a visual inspection and a final function check on the test board

CABLE ASSEMBLY

  • Assembly of different cables
  • Stripping and crimping of different connectors
  • Configuration of complete wire harnesses for final assembly
  • Tinning quality control
  • Testing the manufactured crimp and plug connection

MANUFACTURE OF GOBOS AND COLOUR PANELS

  • Gobo manufacturing for series production
  • Lasering of dichroitically coated colour discs
  • Laser marking of sheet metal parts
Quality control
  • Visual inspection
  • Examination of dichroic filters for colour deviations

FINAL ASSEMBLY

  • Commissioning of all necessary parts for assembly
  • Manual assembly of lights by riveting, screwing, gluing, and soldering
  • Packaging in cases or cartons
Quality control
  • Multi-hour functional test of each completed unit
  • Colour balance according to reference product
  • Measurement of the insulation resistance
  • Measurement of the earth resistance

We also set standards with environmental protection.

Our philosophy is to use natural resources as sparingly as possible. That's why we focus consistently on maximum personal responsibility, ecology and self-sufficiency, also with regard to environmental protection. Our company buildings are an important part of our environmental concept. As early as ten years ago, the first photovoltaic system was installed on our main building. We now have a PV system with 150 kWp at our command. This generates more power than the entire production of JB-Lighting needs.
In addition, we collect rainwater in a 200 m3 cistern (200,000 litres), which covers our entire service water supply. All rinsing processes in production, the washing machine and garden irrigation are also carried out with cistern water. As a result, we consciously save clean drinking water.
Just as environmentally aware, both company buildings are heated completely CO2-neutral by the waste heat of an adjacent biogas plant. The fuel oil savings amount to approximately 30,000 litres a year.

BRIEF PROFILE - HOW IT ALL BEGAN


Since 1990, JB-Lighting has been developing, designing, and producing intelligent spotlights and lighting technology solutions at Blaustein in southern Germany. Everything began with company founder Jürgen Braungardt’s fascination with mirror scanners. The technology, which was brand new at the time, combined complex mechanics and analog (later digital) control and inspired Jürgen Braungardt to develop his own spotlights.
Then as now, the focus was always on developing reliable and user-friendly products. So it's not surprising that many spotlights which left our factory many years ago to be used in discos, clubs, bars or on live stages are still in use today. JB-Lighting opened a new chapter in lighting technology in 2005 and presented the VaryLED 3*84, the first stage-ready LED-based washlight, combining all the benefits of LED technology, such as flat design, low power consumption and long life. This made JB-Lighting a pioneer and trendsetter in a market segment that is now the focus of virtually all well-known manufacturers.
LED technology is still a big challenge and our development department is constantly working on other exciting products. But it's not about using LEDs because they’re 'hip' or promise good sales. On the contrary, the benefits of LEDs should really come into play. JB-Lighting is also well prepared for the future. Jürgen Braungardt and his team of committed and extremely competent employees consistently pursue the goal of further establishing JB-Lighting as a premium manufacturer, developing innovative products and modern tools, without any compromise in terms of service and customer proximity.

THE NEW STAR OF JB-LIGHTING


The new Varyscan P18 – perfect for large theatre and show stages – with 1,000 watt white light LED module offers lighting designers almost unlimited possibilities. With features such as the framing shutter module, CMY colour mixing, linear CTO, two gobo wheels, sparkle and animation effects, etc. and a zoom range of 7–56° (1:8), this ultimate, premium-class LED spot sets new standards.
