Intelligence, Safety and Efficiency in Transit
Luminator Technology Group delivers globally-recognized technology solutions that increase intelligence, safety, and efficiency for public transit operations
Luminator Technology Group (Luminator) was established and is purposefully architected to make a lasting impact on the transit technology market. Combining strategic research and development with smart acquisitions, we are merging a broad range of expertise and new technology along with best-in-class products from successful, well-known regional companies into one cohesive, global organization.
Luminator is uniquely positioned to provide solutions to connect transit passengers to vital information while supporting the operational objectives of efficient transit operations. Supporting transit bus and rail car manufacturers as well as public transit operators around the globe, Luminator is developing and delivering technology with tangible benefits to public transit.
Our certification group ensures product compliance of a wide range of regulatory and industry standards as well as customer specific requirements. The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Railroad Administration, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, European Road Administration and national regulations are the backbone of our products — with world class product safety as the result.
Meticulous and robust reliability testing provides our customers with solutions that perform well beyond warranty in the harshest segments of the transportation industry. Our US facility has an accredited laboratory where more than 80% of our qualification needs, including FAA and Boeing certification, are performed.
Our 90+ year presence in the transit industry demonstrates our commitment to excellent performance with a strong focus on quality assurance to meet or exceed customer requirements. Luminator Technology Group (Luminator) has widely recognized global certifications including:
- ISO/IEC 170252017 Accredited (PJLA #84491) Testing
- IRIS Certification
- CMMI Certification
- ISO 9001:2015 Certification
Luminator’s facilities maintain a well-established and documented quality management system (QMS) in accordance with a variety of standards including: AS9100D, ISO9001:2015, ASO100A and FAA Title 14 CFR §21.303. Detailed descriptions of each process are addressed through individual, top-level quality procedures. For accreditation for a specific manufacturing facility, or product, please contact us.
We subject our QMS to annual accreditation surveillance audits and quarterly 3rd party audits plus monthly internal audits to ensure the QMS is performing to its highest level.
As part of the QMS, our US team utilizes an online corrective action database to capture opportunities for improvement. Corrective action submittals are reviewed by cross functional team then followed up to verify effectiveness. The corrective action system covers corrective action requests/reports (CARs), preventative action requests (PARs), supplier corrective action requests (SCARs), and Failure Analysis (FA) report.
Quality training is core to our success. Employees are trained at the beginning of their employment and throughout their tenure at Luminator. We strive to maintain their competence level for building quality into the product. We have many specialty areas including certified FAA DMIRs, and personnel with customer ODA status.
The Luminator Reliability Process was developed in 2004 which provides world class product assessment, reliability test program development, testing and evaluation to the aerospace, defense, mass transit, heavy transportation and the electronics industries. Our customers span the globe and our process has been used successfully to introduce solutions into application environments which range from the harshest exposures on high performance aircraft to complex mobile electronic systems on buses and railcars.
Our solutions comply with environmental standards and so does our organization. We are fully aware of the importance of maintaining the planet’s resources and apply sustainability into our projects. This is reflected in the development of energy-efficient and energy-autonomous solutions, reduction of fuel usage by the design of smaller, lighter on-board solutions and the use of more reliable materials in the manufacturing process.
