Losing weight to go mobile…
Problem: Losing weight to go mobile
- A customer wanted to develop a portable version of their successful stationary instrument. They needed a high precision positioning device that was light, small and work in a variety of environmental conditions.
- Through our expertise with joysticks manufacturers we recommended the best one for their product. Then we worked with them to minimise the size of the enclosure by optimising the internal design and building custom cable harnesses. The final product beat their size and weight specifications and gave them ideas for their next improvement.
- The smaller and lighter instrument saved them money on shipping and added to the overall profitability of their new product. Their success made them more confident. They are already working on expanding their line into other markets and adding wireless communication for easy data sharing in the field to their next new line.
