When you need special lighting, you want something bright enough for the job. However, you also need compact lighting, so it doesn’t get in your way. LED machine lights are the best choice for a number of reasons. Let’s look closer and discover why.
Once you buy specialized lighting you don’t want to replace the bulbs often. For example, standard light bulbs may give you 1000 hours of service. If you use your work lighting 8 hours a day and five days a week your bulbs should last about six months.
High-quality LED machine lights last for up to 50,000 hours. You don’t replace the bulbs very often. When you use your lighting for 40 hours each week, that is 2080 hours per year. At this rate, your bulbs last for 24 years. As you can see, there is a huge difference in the lives of standard and LED light bulbs. During those 24 years, you save enough money on bulbs to more than pay for the lights.
LED lighting is superior to both incandescent and fluorescent lighting. With corded lights, you save you a lot of energy. LED uses as much as 6 times less electricity than incandescent bulbs. For instance, it only takes 10 watts of LED power to equal the lighting power of a 60-watt incandescent bulb.
LED machine lights generate very little heat. In fact, you can touch them and not get burned. This is an important feature for a machinist or worker working close to the light source. Plus, if you use standard lights inside of cabinets, it creates a lot of unnecessary heat.
The cost of LED lighting is more than incandescent. However, this cost is offset with all the benefits you receive. New LED lighting is one of the best business investments you can make.Add to favorites
