At this time of year bulb replacement reaches new heights, but how often are motorists badly disappointed by the lack of quality of a new bulb causing early failure. Lighting technology specialists, OSRAM have highlighted how this is not the case with it products, pointing out that, “Quality is its expertise”. 


OSRAM says that many people think a bulb is just a bulb, but for OSRAM that is simply not the case. Through its state of the art automotive lighting laboratories in Germany, OSRAM continues to push the market forward with technical expertise and quality, ensuring its bulbs are the best customers can buy. 

To ensure its products are of the highest quality, OSRAM puts all of its products through rigorous testing at its manufacturing and testing facility in Herbrechtingen, Germany. 

The Herbrechtingen lab includes tests for temperature and climate, such as sun simulation, climate test, salt spray test, temperature shock and chemical resistance, amongst others. There are also mechanical tests for the bulb, including vibration, stone chip, tension, compression and shock tests, as well as high speed recording. Electrical tests, such as electrostatic discharges, load dump, high voltage, fast-switches and battery supply simulator and light measurement tests, including luminous flux, luminous intensity distribution and luminance measurement, are also undertaken. OSRAM also carries out geometrical tests for coordinate measurements, which is the spatial coordinates of points on a workpiece surface.

Finally, the lab technicians conduct an analysis of the bulb tested which involves microscopy, microsection analysis and x-rays. All of these tests are done before any bulb leaves the factory to be sold, so that OSRAM’s exceptional reputation of quality products is upheld. 

Complementing OSRAM’s facilities is Ring Automotive’s test lab in the UK. Ring, an OSRAM business since 2019, has the only automotive lighting lab in the UK. Once products arrive into Leeds for the UK and Irish markets, the team conduct further batch testing, including light measurement, luminous intensity distribution and lumens output to ensure customers only receive the highest standard bulbs.

OSRAM and Ring bulbs are available from stockists nationwide.
