November 10, 2011 — LED lighting maker Gem Hsin Electronics reduced the size of heatsinks in its LED products by drilling miniscule holes beneath LEDs. The holes allow heated air to escape the LED package.
The holes are drilled with laser-guided technology. The direct-air-release holes improve LED efficiency and lifespan, the company reports. It also wides the company’s lighting beam angles (up to 220). Gem Hsin also says that the finished LED products require 20% less energy than competing products and offer 30,000-hour LED life.
