SHINE A LIGHT – The light of the future at Orgatec
Biodynamic light, smart lighting concepts, cradle-to-cradle solutions: come and visit us at the Orgatec trade fair in Cologne. From 23 - 27 October we will be showing you lighting solutions that make office life more efficient and healthier. Where? Hall 8.1 Stand B040.
Smart ideas and innovative solutions at Medica 2018
When proven technologies and innovative ideas come together, the result can be lighting solutions that reliably support people in their everyday life.
Experience the new treatment light TRIANGO 100 - our highlight at the Medica 2018. In addition, you must not miss our innovative examination, magnifying and treatment luminaires.
We’ll be in Hall 14 at Booth A64. We look forward to seeing you.
New: TENO Support Arm System
TENO is the optimal support arm system for examination and small surgical lights as well as for flat screens or patient multimedia systems in the medical environment. The spring arm is adjustable according to customer requirements and allows optimum position accuracy regardless of the attached load.
Cosy free-standing luminaire with biodynamic light
The new VIVAA FREE VTL free-standing luminaire takes the advantages of natural daylight to interior rooms. Its centrepiece is the light management system VTL for biologically active lighting (Human Centric Lighting). Plug in main plug, and right away the luminaire will provide the right light at the right time - exactly as nature does. Over the course of the day, the light that does this will change automatically: From morning to midday, an activating neutral-white light provides a feeling of alertness. Over the course of the day, the light intensity increases. During the early evening hours, a warm light provides inner peace and harmony.
Awarded performance at Light & Building 2018!
Our communication concept as well as the booth for Light & Building 2018 we created with Werbung etc. have both been awarded with the ICONIC AWARDs 2018: Innovative Architecture. An independent and knowledgeable jury decides who wins the ICONIC AWARDS: Innovative Architecture. The jury is made up of representatives of the fields of architecture, interior design, design and brand communications.
The new TRIANGO 100 minor surgery light combines the latest light technology with high ergonomic standards. The arm system with highly precise positioning can be swiveled 360° and allows a reach of 183 cm. Even the luminaire head can be moved 180°. This means there is always light exactly where it is needed.Versions with optional equipment, such as focusing, endoscopy mode and color alteration, make the TRIANGO 100 a versatile luminaire to meet any need. It offers perfect lighting conditions in clinics, hospitals, emergency rooms, traumatology or in general treatment and examination rooms for surgical and dermatological applications and procedures.
Waldmann is core partner of the BRE Biophilic Office research and demonstration project in UK. Biophilic design acknowledges that we are genetically connected to nature and that a human centred approach can improve workspaces with numerous benefits to health, wellbeing and efficiency. The project will span two and a half years. After analyzing the current working conditions in the first year, the office from the 1980s will be refurbished. The building will be completely overhauled: beginning with simple steps as putting plants on desks, continuing with fitting new nature-inspired carpet tiles or green walls up to our biodynamic lighting solutions to mimic natural light. In the second year the impact of the new office environment on the workers will be analyzed.
Waldmann wins German Brand Award 2018
Waldmann has won the German Brand Award 2018 in the category »Industry Excellence in Branding«. More than 1,250 entries have competed this year. More than half of them in the area »Industry Excellence in Branding«. We are all the more delighted that Waldmann has been chosen by the independent panel of experts from branding technology and branding science to be the winner.
Industrial tube luminaire now for further fields of application
As of now, the LED tube luminaire RL 70 LE is available in additional variants and therefore suitable for further fields of application. Thanks to different tube materials, such as borosilicate glass, acrylic or polycarbonate, the industrial tube luminaire can also be used in packaging, printing, textile and wood processing machines and production facilities. Housing technology and LED technology guarantee maximum reliability. Conventional tube luminaires can easily be replaced with the
RL 70 LE. Through-wired variants are also available.
Swarm control: now automatically via Bluetooth
Never again working alone in a dark office: The LUM CONNECT TALK wireless module enables luminaires to communicate with each other and provides groups of luminaires to create a pleasant work atmosphere at all times. The new Bluetooth function even enables the luminaires to group themselves automatically. When the room situation changes, the groups of luminaires adapt to it at all times. That's how easy it is to increase safety, orientation and well-being in the office!
LIGHT ADMIN app: The smart way to configure lighting
With a versatile range of user-oriented customisation options and with the rising intelligence of lighting, it is becoming increasingly time-consuming to configure these systems. To counteract this in future, we have developed the LIGHT ADMIN app. The app can be used to create a building structure to provide lighting to all floors, rooms and areas. Waldmann luminaires can be integrated and configured within that structure. By way of example, this includes automatic switch-on, dimming levels response thresholds for the presence detectors and the swarm control.
Our MACH LED PLUS machine light with luminaire interface opens up new possibilities for you. The digital luminaire input for powerless switching saves you the need for additional relays and switches. That saves space and costs. Also, since you only switch on your machine light when you actually need it, this also reduces power consumption. The PWM interface also provides other benefits. When using a flash, you can use the stroboscope effect to visually inspect high-speed processes on the machine while it is in operation. Also, with an appropriate adjustment to the frequencies, the light can also be used for signalling, e.g. of error messages. The dimming function enables you to create some customised light settings, and this further reduces energy costs. The analogue dimming process assures flicker-free light at every level.
Forsa results: Lighting for aging workforce
For the majority of industrial companies good workplace lighting is crucial for maintaining health and performance. Around half of the companies surveyed admit that the percentage of older employees is increasing. The study however shows that more than half of the companies have so far employed hardly any individual lighting solutions at the workplace or none at all and therefore do not take into account the altered lighting needs of the aging workers.
