Remanufacturing has been around for many years, particularly in high value products such as capital plant and some automotive parts. The process brings the product back to the original specification and quality. In looking at how this technique would be applied to ultra efficient lamps, Cool-Curve has developed the concept of Product Regeneration. As LED technology continues rapidly improve, we believe it will be important to capture the latest performance when remanufacturing its products. As the lamps will also be highly attractive, it also believes the remade lamp should capture latest design thinking while making the most of the original materials.
Clearly this requires careful specification and design of the original products but keeping the lamps up to date through each regeneration phase will ensure that the components and materials have a long and highly productive life while providing the highest quality of light for the least possible energy.
