Eyegrow pig weighing system
Fancom’s advanced eYeGrow system is a 3D camera system that monitors animals’ weight with more than 93% accuracy. The system offers information which provides a detailed view on the best feeding strategy. Automatic weighing is a friendly way of weighing for the animals. As the system operates fully automatically, the pigs will not experience any stress.
The housing was renewed, paying particular attention to the heat dissipation.
GBO Innovation makers designed the camera housing of the Fancom eYeGrow system. We provided numerous sketched concept designs. From there, a key sketch was chosen and CAD visuals were modelled. We optimized our design with several iterations. The main target was that it fits within the Fancom product family.
Among other things, we discovered through extensive testing and prototyping excessive heating of the camera, which resulted in the addition of cooling ribs on top. Furthermore, we supported Fancom with the production of parts for their prototypes and show models.
Developing a product requires good coordination and management of various disciplines.
In our workflow we explain step by step how we approach the process.
