High Performance Sewing Lights
Because….every stitch matters
The Alex Light - High Performance Sewing
A professional sewing machinist will perform only as well as they can see the work. Sewing is a manual task, performed indoors at speed, requiring a quality focus. All sight is light, so the light you shed matters.
How to choose the right production light
Beyond the obvious considerations like making sure a light is fit for purpose, able to withstand dust and vibration and guaranteed to last, the main factors which should impact any decision are productivity and machinist well-being.
Without the benefit of clear sight, human performance deteriorates.
Sewing productivity is mostly lost in large numbers of short moments of downtime. If a machinist sees in high definition because colours appear in a true light, it means they will pick out stitching easier, enjoy better contrast, avoid eye-strain, and not be forced to blink because of glare as often. Sight of the work at hand has a major impact on productivity.
Over the 5-year minimum guaranteed life of an Alex Light, the investment amounts to less than 1 penny per hour per machine. For this tiny investment you get near daylight at the needle all day every day and its impacts of quality and productivity, a healthier workforce, fewer mistakes and a five-year warranty. Fitting the right light on production machinery is financial common sense if you a have serious eye on profit.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that the chance of making errors can be greatly increased if you cannot see stitching or details properly. A dark cloth will drain the available light. A shiny cloth needs a different light. The light shed on work has a strong impact on what we can do and whether we get it right.
The naked human eye struggles to notice differences in the make-up of light. It adapts and copes to manage but, coping is tiring, can causes eye, neck and back strain and often degrades performance. It makes no sense to force your machinists to sit, bend and strain badly.
