Headlamps are an integral part to both the visibility and safety of the driver, as well as to the design and appearance of the vehicle. Headlamp technology has progressed dramatically in the recent years, and Flex-N-Gate Lighting delivers headlamps that achieve the necessary balance between functionality and signature, brand-indicating design. We utilize a large portfolio of available technologies, from the more cost effective all the way to intricate and complex systems, and always optimized in accordance with the customers’ requirements and needs. And our approach is becoming more and more modular, making the application of specific technologies to necessary designs simple and effective.
LED light applications have been leading the push for safer and better performing headlamps. These lamps feature an extremely long lifecycle, increased durability, reduced energy consumption without compromising photometric performance and a light color temperature that mimics daylight. With the progression of LED technology giving us more and more freedom for customization, FNG can provide customers with numerous functional and styling-specific configurations.
The versatility of LEDs allow for the approach to be tailored to customers’ needs. LEDs can be used for all forward lighting functions, and our modular applications for the low and high beam give us the ability to apply LED systems to whatever packaging and design the customer requires. In addition, we have modules optimized for AFS, with multiple programs already in production. Our capabilities allow for cost-effective systems as well as more complex systems, depending on customers’ needs.
Xenon High Intensity Discharge lamps are a great alternative to halogen bulbs as they feature up to 200% more light emitted and lower energy usage than standard halogen bulbs. These lamps provide a smaller package size as well as improvements in aesthetic and visibility. Our HID Projector modules provide outstanding visibility and comfort for the driver, as well as improved customization for the customer.
Used since the early 1960s, these lamps are still the most popular and cost-effective option for consumer cars. Halogen bulbs feature a longer life and brighter light than their non-halogen predecessors. As well as their use in low/high beam functions, these bulbs can be used for all other front lighting functions.
Our projector modular systems are the perfect balance of cost effectiveness and high performance. Our multi-shot PC lenses are lightweight and crystal clear. This, along with complex geometry, innovative optical prescriptions and adaptable heat sinks, creates modules that function at the highest possible efficiency. Construction can be adapted to cost and styling needs, with both LED and Halogen light source options, several lens shapes available for the same performance with different design needs and the option for AFS integration. There is no more effective solution for low and high beam applications.
Our reflector high/low beam modules are cost-effective solutions that enable numerous styling options. Each lamp involves complex and unique engineering of the specific lamp geometry to create the optical prescription necessary to capture as much light as possible. These systems are extremely versatile; adaptable to different light sources as well as customer styling requirements for appearance and packaging.
This unique technology is one that FNG can utilize for anything from the DRL and park function to signature lamps and other auxiliary functions. Using LED or incandescent light sources, our capabilities allow us to use materials suitable for each particular application in order to extract and direct the most amount of light. Whether you're looking for a fully homogeneous appearance with multiple light sources or more cost effective solutions, FNG light pipe capabilities give customers’ headlamps an elevated, luxury feel while still achieving whatever function necessary.
Side Marker & Turn
The side marker and turn function work as a directional indicator and to increase the visibility of the vehicle. These functions can be integrated into the headlamp or act as a separate, single-function lamp. Styling and design solutions can include the use of LED or incandescent light sources. At FNG we're always open to unique concepts and solutions. Our side marker and turn functions can use anything from multi-LED arrays behind reflex optics, light guides and light blades, custom optic patterns, as well as homogeneous applications and sequential indicators. More than function, our solutions elevate the appearance of our customers’ lamps by including the integration of new technology and unique and exciting design concepts.
At Flex-N-Gate, we offer solutions for fog lamps to both improve the illumination during inclement weather and hazardous driving conditions as well as provide a unique individual appearance. These lamps can use individual LEDs, multi-LED arrays or halogen bulbs and can use anything from projector, reflector to direct application. We offer solutions that adhere to cost requirements while still offering flexible design options.
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The implementation of Daytime Running Lamps has provided all drivers on the road with increased safety by making cars more visible during the day. At FNG, we understand the way that DRLs have transformed into a signature function that can differentiate a customer’s brand from the rest of the cars on the road. We are able to achieve the necessary output for DRL function with everything from direct light source placement, to homogeneous light pipes, from near-field lens applications, to reflector systems. No matter the styling and cost requirements, we have a solution that fits our customers’ needs.
This optional addition to forward lighting acts as a brand-defining element to vehicles. Whether looking for the complete spectrum of design options to the more cost-effective solutions, Flex-N-Gate engineering capabilities allows for the maximum amount of possibilities for signature lighting applications.
Adaptive Driving Beam
Our Adaptive Driving Beam technology is progressing right in line with the development of its legality in the United States. A key safety and comfort feature, the technology will soon be available in the US markets. Click below to learn more about our ADB technology.
