New Technology of Hose Lights - Development and Application of Flexible Neon Lights



Neon lights have been widely used in the decorative lighting market for many years due to their uniform and continuous light. For example, it is applied to decorative lighting places such as facades, signboards, caption advertisements, hotel bars, and building outlines. However, the neon lamp uses a glass tube, which is defective in packaging and transportation, and is difficult to manufacture and install. In the 1970s, people dreamed of installing small bulbs in wires for decoration and lighting. Today, these lamps have spread all over Europe, America, and Asia, and they have entered the streets and walked into people. In life. We refer to this soft, tubular-like long strip lamp as a hose light.
The development of hose light technology Since its invention, the hose light has been called "plastic neon" or "flexible neon" in the lighting decoration market. The characteristics of the hose lamp are: automatic extrusion molding at the time of production, low production cost, easy bending when used, good safety and reliability, and can be randomly patterned by the consumer according to the needs. Therefore, the hose lamp overcomes the defects that the glass neon lamp is easy to be broken, difficult to transport, high in production cost, cannot be bent at will, has poor safety performance, and requires special person to install and maintain. At the same time, hose lamps also have the characteristics of distinguishing other analog neon products, which have widely replaced glass neon in the general decorative lighting market.
However, in the twenty-thir-year promotion of early hose lamps, glass neon lights were not completely replaced, especially in the decorative lighting market where light effects were high. Hose lamps did not replace glass neon lights. The reason is that the light source covered in the hose lamp tube is a point-like illuminator, such as a micro bulb or an LED, which is longitudinally spaced apart in the tube, and the light emitted by the granular point source Can not achieve the beauty of uniform neon lights. Therefore, in the 20th and 30th years, the decorative lighting market has been expecting a hose lamp that can truly have a uniform continuous light effect of neon lights.
U.S. Patent No. 4,607,317, issued on Aug. 19, 1986, the patent name of which is a non-neon light, which discloses an invention of a non-neon light, namely the invention of a perforated hose lamp. The patented hose lamp has superior safety, packaging, installation, use and maintenance performance than glass neon. However, the light emitted by such a granular point source cannot achieve the beauty of uniform continuous light of neon.
U.S. Patent No. 6,186,645, B1, issued on Feb. 13, 2001, the patent name is a flexible lighting system and a mounting method. The product can diverge the light emitted by the hose light source to achieve a uniform effect of the hose lamp, and the invention basically reaches The uniform continuous light effect of simulating neon lights, but its light effect still needs further improvement.
U.S. Patent No. 6,565,251 B2, issued May 20, 2003, which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety in its entirety in its entirety in the in the in the in the

In order to develop the world's leading advanced technology in the neon field and solve the technical bottleneck of neon existence, Hong Kong Zhenmingli Group Heshan Yinyu Lighting Co., Ltd. began to invest a lot of manpower and material resources and introduced multi-party resources in the 1990s. Development of hose lamps. In August 2003, Hong Kong Zhenmingli Group applied for the name of a modified structure of a hose lamp, patented ZL200420042364.8, and the improved structure of the hose lamp from Hong Kong Zhenmingli Group from 2003 to 2004. The illuminating device has applied for eight utility model patents. In order to provide a modified structure of a hose lamp that has a true continuous and continuous light effect, it has undergone long-term research and experiment. In 2005, Hong Kong Zhenmingli Group invented a hose lamp that truly replaces the traditional glass tube. The LED flexible neon lamp, and successfully applied for the invention patent 200410032066.5, satisfactorily solved the hose light structure of the uniform continuous light effect of the neon lamp in the hose lamp industry, and the improved hose lamp structure of the invention relates to a decorative lighting device, in particular An improved structure of a hose lamp that simulates the continuous and uniform light effects of neon lights, can simulate the uniform and continuous light effect of neon lights, achieves the long-cherished goal of the hose lamp industry, and realizes continuous automated mass production. Simulated neon lights, which are larger than the production of many other analog neon lights, have low production costs, and have the advantage of analog neon and hose lights of other structures.
Flexible neon features
LED Flexible Neon is a noble professional linear lighting decoration product that looks like a normal neon, but can be bent at will. This product is shatterproof and waterproof, and can be used indoors and outdoors. Its characteristics are as follows: (1) Traditional neon investment is large, the production process is complicated, and the use of glass tubes, high-voltage electricity and inert gas is inconvenient. Instead of a new structure and LED technology, the flexible neon lamp is packaged with a special LED housing with a bright LED bulb. The unique optical technology and special housing design not only greatly increase the intensity and uniformity of the light, but also reduce the Process flow increases productivity.
