Lighting Standard for Metal Processing Inspection

#1
Good day everyone,

My name is Mbeko Nobomvu, Supplier Quality Engineer based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

I need help in understanding the lux levels for metal processing.

Just to clarify on my question - what would be the lux level standard for an inspection point for blanks.?

Is there a guideline or standard ?

I hope my question is clear?.

Regards,
Mbeko Nobomvu

I don't know of a lighting standard related to metal processing.

For soldering inspection the IPC recommendation is 1000 lux. I've seen manufacturers target 500-750 lux for other inspection areas.

The most important consideration is, is the lighting adequate in brightness, color, and angle for the inspectors to see what the need to see?

Hi Mbeko,

Attached is an excellent though somewhat dated resource, it may have been updated since, yet the foundation is there, look it over it should provide you with some guidance...it certainly did for me. A harsh reality is that in many if not most manufacturing environments lighting is frequently ignored or forgotten....

Cheers
