How is an excellent torch born?

"It's just a torch. What can it do but give you light?"

"The mobile phone can provide the light, why do we need to buy the torch?

"Why the torch is so expensive?"

 

As the torch industry, accustomed to hearing these prejudiced words of the torch. British prose writer Wei Herzlitt said that prejudice is the product of ignorance since so many people have such a deep misunderstanding of the torch . Let's enter the world of torches with me and learn the history of the birth of a torch.

 

1.    How to make a torch  from nothing?

A successful life is through thousands of trials, and an excellent torch also requires complicated trials. Everything is born from an idea. For a torch, its prototype is a concept that exists in the brain, and then a product ID is determined, which is the concept in the mind, and the next step is to start designing, Do precise calculations and planning from the perspective of colour, volume, function, etc.

With a complete design drawing, you can start to make samples. The meaning of the sample is to test whether there are problems with this product, and then continue to optimize the product according to the parameters. At the end of the optimization, the "best of choice" is left. The next stage is the trial production stage, and finally, the best quality product is in everyone's hands.

 

2. How to do test the performance of the torch?

The function of the torch is different from selling other products. It needs to go through tedious testing steps to ensure that the performance of this torch reaches the optimal value before it can be produced. I am fortunate to have walked into our torch laboratory in Olight, let's experience the test trip of the torch with me.

(1)The First Station

When you want to buy a torch, the first thing you look at is its lumen and other light parameters. After all, light is the soul of a torch. So in our laboratory, the first step is to test the luminous flux and colour temperature of the torch. These steps are tested in the following equipment.

high-precision fast spectroradiometer


The scientific name of this big ball is called a high-precision fast spectroradiometer. The staff needs to walk in and place the torch on the workbench to measure, and the luminous flux and colour temperature parameters of the torch can be directly output to the computer.

 

(2)  The Second Station

Leaving the first station then we will be brought to the side of the illuminance meter for an illuminance test. Here is the illuminance meter.

illuminance parameter

The illuminance parameter can reflect how the light intensity of the torch changes with distance. After the test, the light intensity of the torch can be basically determined.

 

(3)  The Third Station

There is also a concern about the runtime of the torch, the general torch is often reduced with the amount of electricity, the light intensity will become weak, so how to know a torch lumen changes in the process of use? Let's take a look at this box?

This box is called the running curve box. The torch is lit on the box. As time goes by, the change in light intensity will also be displayed on the measuring instrument, so that the illuminance change of the torch from on to off can be calculated.

 

(4)  The Fourth Station

Of course, torches can't escape the measuring temperature. We can use this multi-channel data logger to measure it. 

temperature measurement

There is no torch that can escape Schrödinger's heat, so temperature measurement is of course necessary. If the temperature is too high, it will be bad for other items.

 

(5)  The Fifth Station

Everyone has heard that the buttons of mobile phones undergo hundreds of thousands of button life tests before they leave the factory. The buttons on the torch can be said to be the keys to its life, so the button life test is naturally inevitable. It is on this iron plate that the button of the torch will go through crazy rubbing over 100,000 times.

(6)  The Sixth Station

Maybe you ve tried something like your phone falling into hot water? What if the torch falls into an environment where the temperature is too high or too low? How long can it last?

At this time, our environmental experiment box comes in handy. Don't underestimate this box, doesn't look like it looks like a refrigerator, but the temperature inside it can reach up to 150 degrees, and the lowest can reach -70 degrees. Our torch needs to pass this kind of double "torture" of high temperature and low temperature can stand out smoothly. The torches of Olight in your hand have gone through this cruel test before coming to you.

(7)  The Seventh Station

Here we came to the seventh station of the torch test. This step of the test is a simple and rude ravage for the excellent torch.

The first is to throw the torch into the deep water.

Then there are many times drop tests from a high .

After completing all the tests, these excellent torches can be put into production.

And you have to believe that every torch in your hand must be the crystallization of wisdom developed by the elites of Olight day and night, and it is also a leader in the torch world!
