Layout & Design Prototyping with Lumeneering by WCI™

WCI engineers are pros at the prototyping, design, and certification compliance for LED modules that fit perfectly and work properly in lighting fixtures. Prototype samples can be delivered in as quickly as 2 weeks depending on project complexity and the BOM.

Our engineering team can assist with the design and layout of your new LED modules in just a few days. We call this process, Lumeneering by WCI™, our speciality service that includes free consulting to achieve the most efficient layout for your LED modules.  Once the  layout is approved, we can get samples to you typically  in 2 – 3 weeks.

From the layout we send the design to our PCBA partner. We then begin the process of manufacturing the LED module samples in-house with our SMT machines. Once the samples are made, WCI engineers test and analyze the performance, after which we go over the results with you for approval or any further iterations.

After sending the samples to you and obtaining approvals, we move forward to the production phase with a blanket PO. Additional services include getting UL certification for your new or updated light fixtures and being your one-stop-shop for prototyping, UL testing, assembly and production.
