Realise

Due to the close cooperation between the design and engineering teams, we managed to develop all parts for manufacturing and prototyping despite the extremely short time frame. Besides product design, color studies and packaging design were part of the development process as well.

Mould construction

In a five week period all the moulds have been realised. This includes the two-component moulds combining hard PC/ABS with soft TPE.

Production

GBO Innovation makers has been manufacturing the Oxboard since 2015. The production and assembly are carefully monitored locally resulting in a zero defect delivery status.

Not only does the covering in the front open, the covering on the top does too. This ensures that potential repairs can be reached with ease.
