Bulb pinch technology is a process which has been especially developed by OSRAM for manufacturing halogen special lamps. This patented method ensures that the lamps have a longer service life and protects them from vibration and impact. The fail-safe system for switch-off technology which is also patented means that halogen special lamps with bulb pinch technology can also be used in lamps without protective covering. One exception to this for standardization reasons are the HALOLINE lamps.
Operating principle of bulb pinch technology
In bulb pinch technology, the quartz glass bulb is used to securely hold the filament in the lamp in the correct position. During the process, the quartz glass body is heated at certain points during manufacture and is pinched together to be able to generate a secure hold for the filament on the inside. The thin and extremely sensitive filament is attached directly (pinched) to the glass bulb by so-called "glass knobs" created by the process. Hence the name for this unusual technology.
Advantages of bulb pinch technology in special applications
Halogen lamps for special applications
Particularly in the family of halogen studio lamps, OSRAM bulb pinch technology is indispensable. This means better lamp quality and greater luminous efficiency making the lamps high performance and cost-effective solutions for stage lighting as well as film and TV recordings. The robust lamp design makes the lamps insensitive to impact and vibrations, thus increasing their service life.
Halogen lamps with bulb pinch technology
Bulb pinch technology is used for halogen lamps in high voltage, medium voltage and low voltage applications. This particularly affects the mains voltage lamps. The wide range of products OSRAM has on offer runs from spotlights with very small dimensions to powerful wallwashers.
