    I’ve ordered ~10 of these over the past two years. The only problem we’ve had was when a motor burnt out after we left it continually running for a long time (months) during development. Lightware was very helpful in replacing the product after we returned the burnt out device.

    Lightware was able to provide great service to our company for many times. The SF40/C is being purchased only by Lightware and for the reasons of being trust worthy with perfect quality also delivering on the promising time. Always grateful.
