Ring Automotive shines bright with double industry awards
Thursday, March 05, 2020
Ring Automotive, an OSRAM business, has got 2020 off to a winning start, picking up two prestigious awards for the Ring MAGflex Pivot RIL3900HP
The innovative light has been named the inspection lamp ‘Best Buy 2020’ by both Auto Express and Car Mechanic Magazine. It was praised for its slim design, ease of use, and multi axis rotation and tilt, which enables light to be directed exactly where it is required.
Designed especially for the workshop, the pocket-sized, lightweight lamp can be used on the go, and at just 6mm deep, it will allow users to squeeze into the tightest of gaps with its concentrated beam, which emits up to 400 lumens.
The MAGflex Pivot RIL3900HP is rechargeable and cordless, with a Li-ion battery for consistent light output, the compact lamp has a 3-hour maximum power operating time, so technicians no longer have to worry about being left in the dark.
The tests involved measurement of light output and beam spread, as well as assessing torches and run time at maximum power. Power-saving modes were also tested, plus battery charge and state indicators. The products were then put into practice, with technicians looking at how easy it is to shine light where it is needed.
Henry Bisson, marketing manager for Ring Automotive, said, “Both wins are a testament to the expertise and forward-thinking approach that has gone into the design of the MAGflex Pivot. When creating this particular product, we put the professional first, and it was therefore important to ensure it could meet the requirements of a busy workshop environment. It needed to be able to shine light into the most inaccessible places, while keeping charge and being comfortable to work with.”
