A light box is an illuminated work surface usually used in science, art and industry to make inspection and creative tasks much easier. Modern light boxes produce a pure white light which can be set to a precise brightness and worked directly over. Our light boxes also have an even distribution of light which runs right to the edge of the screen preventing light or dark spots which may cause distortion.
They are usually available to suit all standard paper sizes from A4 to 2A0 and at Orchard we make them to almost any specific size too! If you are after a professional light box or light table for anything from quality control tasks to simply drawing or tracing an image and photography, then we have something for you no matter your budget.

We can ensure that your stringent QC procedure becomes as straight forward as possible. So if you need reliable lighting with adjustable brightness to inspect and assess a product, material or tool we can definitely help.
