VarioInspect LED light tunnel developed by Eisenmann

Integrating engineering and design, Eisenmann has received the prestigious Red Dot Award 2016 for Product Design in the industry, machinery and robotics category…

The 41 judges, including designers, university professors and journalists from around the world, have praised the advanced design of the VarioInspect, an LED light tunnel that supports quality control in paint shops.

From the 5,214 products that were entered in the international competition’s 31 categories, and assessed in terms of innovation, formal quality, functionality, and ecological compatibility, VarioInspect stands out as a unique contribution in the special area of plant engineering and a reward for the successful integration of engineering and design.

As the first LED light tunnel to be developed by Eisenmann (leading global provider of industrial solutions and services for surface finishing, material flow automation, thermal process technology and environmental engineering), VarioInspect was launched in 2015.

The light tunnel’s layout creates a pleasant and ergonomic working environment, and reduces noise levels and echoes. The unique LED lighting is adjustable from warm white to cool white, and can be tailored to the specific challenge, such as the paint colour and gloss level of the body.

The lighting makes highly effective surface quality inspections possible - an essential as OEMs and consumers regard the slightest blemish in paintwork as unacceptable. Additionally, each strip of lighting can be individually controlled to maintain the desired illumination levels.

The vertically arranged bands of light ensure that defects automatically pass through vertical bands of reflected light as the component moves through the tunnel, where the component is subjected to a uniform intensity that does not cast distracting shadows and allows inspectors to detect the slightest blemish. Furthermore, the LED lights generate very little heat, ensuring comfortable working conditions and their low power consumption and long service life minimize operating costs. 

The award ceremony followed by a special, four-week exhibition showcasing the winning products at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany has just concluded.


  1. The advancement of science has permitted the production of cheap bright LED Grow Lights, which emit the wavelength of light similar to chlorophyll absorption limit.
