Solutions from a single source

MENTOR has provided specialist LED-based lighting solutions for many years, across many different market sectors.
From concept to production
Taking customers specific requirements as the starting point, MENTOR produces custom lighting components in five stages.

A team of highly-qualified engineers, using the latest hardware, software, and manufacturing facilities ensure that the resulting products are of the highest quality. Manufacturing plants in various countries ensure that we can offer competitive pricing.
1.
CONCEPT
Working closely with our customers, the fundamental concepts are developed and the exact design requirements are defined. The most suitable LED light sources are chosen, the optic concepts are defined and careful consideration is given to appropriaten energy and thermal management.
2.
ENGINEERING
During the development phase, specific component features are defined: reflective or refractive optic design; sensor design, light source design; CAD design etc.
3.
VISUALIZATION
State-of-the-art software is used to accurately simulate the expected lighting effect of the finished component. Rapid-prototyping techniques are then used to manufacture pre-production samples, enabling an early assessment and approval of the design concept.
4.
TOOL DESIGN
We design and produce the injection moulds in our own tooling factories. For complex, high-performance optics, the moulds are then precision-machined using ultra-precision machine tools.
5.
PRODUCTION
MENTOR provides complete lighting solutions. These start with single or multiple component injection moulding and include enhancements such as reflectors and other nonoptic components.

We complete the solution with assembly, packaging and delivery of complete modules. During production, advanced light measurement technology is used to check the products against their defined optical performance.
The production line is
continuously monitored for QA,
using a fully-certified
quality management system.
