Abstract

Three prototype light fixtures that used Light Emitting Diodes (LED) for machine tools were developed. These light fixtures were designed with a significant focus on improving current light fixtures in the areas of efficiency, light head shape, fixture to machine tool, light quality, and heat dissipation. The prototypes were tested by trial at the Rapid Engineering Manufacturing factory in Wuxi, China, and suggestions for future improvements to each design were developed.
