The Light186 Story

Light186’s story starts 10 years ago when a US-Chinese friendship began. Working together around cameras, lighting, and other sensing products, we developed a solid and trusted working relationship. Now, this relationship has transformed into Light186, a partnership to bring the finest automation, sensing, and mechatronics products in the world to the Americas. Our customers get global reach with local support.

Our Name

The name Light186 has two parts. “Light” reflects the photonics products we represent. “186” reflects the speed of light (186,000 miles/second). Sometimes it feels like the world moves that fast.
