A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11885475B2) discloses a lighting device designed for utility vehicles. The device includes a light source that produces a light beam, housed within an enclosure with a transparent cover. A unique feature of this device is the inclusion of a heatsink with a number of fins that extend from the front to the rear portion of the enclosure, allowing for efficient heat transfer generated by the light source. The heatsink, sealing member, and housing enclosure are assembled together using a fastening system, ensuring a secure structure that effectively manages heat dissipation.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for assembling the lighting device, emphasizing the importance of thermal contact between the heatsink and the light source. The method involves producing fins along the heatsink that extend through the enclosure, with a rear arrangement of fins protruding beyond the housing. The fastening system securely connects the heatsink, sealing member, and housing enclosure, with additional features such as a protection member for the fastener and a vent at the rear portion of the enclosure. The use of materials like polymeric or silica for the sealing member highlights the attention to detail in ensuring the longevity and efficiency of the lighting device for utility vehicles.
