Projectors have seen increasingly more use in business, and most everyone has been to a movie and experienced the amazing picture that projectors can supply. With all this advancement, projectors are now being installed in previously unconventional places such as factories, warehouses, and industrial manufacturing facilities. Digital line management displays are now a core component of process improvement and efficiency. Manufacturing staff no longer need to wait until the end of the day to see if goals are met and targets are hit. All they need to do is look up at the gigantic digital scoreboard that is hanging above the plant floor for real-time reporting.

These displays show production goals, downtime and error reporting, safety messages, and much more. The only inherent downside to using a projector for this type of display is, traditionally, the projector itself. Most potential clients we begin a conversation with start out by asking one question: how long will the projector bulb last? This is an important question to ask for anyone that is involved in mass production because any type of maintenance after the install may result in downtime.

The solution the industry was looking for was to develop technology that would reduce maintenance time on the factory projector to the absolute minimum. We have spent an enormous amount of time learning what it is that matters to this type of client, and it always comes back to maintenance. Many factories are also looking for what consumers themselves are interested in: information at a moment’s notice, and usually without having to ask for it. This means the display needs to constantly be up, and not be at risk of cutting out or shutting down.

By encasing the factory projector in a projector enclosure, the amount of maintenance required goes down significantly. Since particulates are being automatically filtered out, and the projector is constantly being cooled, the bulb’s life is lengthened due to the reduced strain. The enclosure is able to handle basic maintenance inherently, keeping your line management display on without needing any help from you. Your staff can keep getting the information they need, and never need to take up time fixing the display.

Screen Solutions International has stock enclosures that can ship in just a few days. We also can provide custom enclosures, hush boxes, indoor, outdoor, weatherproof, vandal resistant, industrial, and many other enclosure types for almost any situation. We can design and fabricate an enclosure for your unique and custom project too!
