Omron supplies technology worldwide for industrial automation, healthcare, and electronic components. Originally a Japanese high-tech company, Omron has grown into a significant global industrial partner with products ranging from robots and medical equipment to micro-controllers. At their European headquarters in the Netherlands, an extensive R&D department works on innovations in the field of industrial automation.
We created the design style using concept cards, mood boards, and 3D CAD visualizations, focusing on heat development and dissipation.
Exhaustive testing was performed to determine whether the materials would behave as designed. In addition to the 3D prints, we also extensively test milled aluminum models in a user environment. After optimization during the engineering phase, and in consultation with Omron’s R&D team, we transferred the designs for production.
