Tech Talk


We possess an extensive knowledge of heavy-duty lighting and vibration technology, gained from creating work lights for the demanding mining industry since 1992.


Mining is a 24/7 business – from dawn to dusk and everything in between. Designing mining work lights is NORDIC LIGHTS® core business and our back yard. The long-term proof of NORDIC LIGHTS® success within the mining industry is based on the durability of the mining work lights and headlights.

Long-term collaboration with our partners in the mining industry and continuous strategic investments in our own R&D department, vibration testing lab, and the latest in simulation software gives us the power to design the perfect heavy-duty lighting solution for you.

For mining we recommend products in our XTR series, “The Unbreakable Master”.
