Mechdyne Announces 'Go Green / Save Green' Projection Lamp Renewal Program

Component Re-Use Reduces Waste, Reduces Cost up to 25 Percent Compared to New Lamp Purchase

MARSHALLTOWN, IA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - Mechdyne Corporation, a leader in turn-key 3D and advanced audio visual system integration, today announced its "Go Green / Save Green" projection lamp renewal program. Lamp renewal is a cost and resource saving alternative to lamp replacement for Xenon-bulb based, high performance projectors used in large-scale visualization and virtual reality environments. By using new lamps and refurbishing the housing and power components, Mechdyne delivers "like new" lamp performance for up to 25 percent less than the cost of complete lamp replacement offered by projector manufacturers.

Mechdyne offers the program for lamps used in high brightness monoscopic and stereoscopic projectors from major manufacturers. These Xenon lamps are typically rated at 1,000 - 1,500 hours operating life, which translates to one year or less in frequently used systems. In multi-projector systems, replacing only bulbs instead of the entire lamp assembly can add up to significant cost savings and contribute to green goals at end-user organizations.

"Lamp replacement is a win-win for the bottom line and environmental impact of organizations operating advanced visualization systems," said Matthew McKaig, Mechdyne Global Technical Services Manager. "We are proud to offer the program and hope that it will help customers achieve internal goals."

Mechdyne validates that refurbished lamps will not affect projector performance and that bulb life is equivalent to manufacturer specifications.

In addition to refurbishing lamps, Mechdyne is offering a $50 reward for return of undamaged, used lamp housings, as part of its corporate commitment to reduce waste. Details on the "Go Green / Save Green" projection lamp renewal program, including specific lamp models covered and cost, is available via e-mail to greenlamp@mechdyne.com.
