WILO SE

Concept, Usability, Design, CAD, Implementation Support

This connector allows installers to quickly and easily establish electrical connectivity to the pump: It is assembled outside the terminal compartment integrated in the pump and is therefore spatially independent of it, which makes the set-up significantly easier in difficult installation situations. Both the assembly of

the easily dismantled plug and the installation process on the pump itself are carried out completely without tools. For safety reasons, an additional tool that releases the locking mechanism is only required to remove the plug and thus disconnect the pump from the power supply.

The PWA 6000 (Personal Wire Assistant) of Pentair Steinhauer GmbH, a subsidiary of the nvent group of companies, offers cable assembly for control cabinets within a very short time. Thanks to process automation the wires are not only automatically cut to the desired length - they are also printed, stripped, fitted with ferrules and finally bundled by the machine. Compared with conventional methods, not

only is less than half the time now spent on cable assembly, but the quality of the assembly is also improved. By design the machine is divided into different parts, and the clear structural design makes maintenance much easier and shorter. Furthermore, the design appears significantly simplified than the previous model. The red corporate colour is also used to visualise the path of the material.

The sewage pump "Rexa SOLID-Q" was designed for pumping raw sewage in medium-sized pumping stations. The product family includes various pump sizes with different variants - depending on the installation site, both wet and dry installation. The DDI (Digital Data Interface) integrated in the motor includes an IP-based, digital Ethernet interface. This enables extremely simple networking with the system via a single plug as well as external control and monitoring via

an externally connected device. The design integrates the intelligent pump head with transport option and electrical connection area as well as the highly efficient drive in one form. The horizontal surfaces have been reduced to a minimum in order to avoid any accumulation. The fixings have also been reduced, ordered and standardised as far as possible to facilitate installation. A communication band bundles information that is important for the user.

Concept, Design, CAD

Copter Systems GmbH‘s UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) CS-P.O.C. is the result of a completely new concept to develop an absolutely reliable and professional working device in photogrammetry and thus to leave the field of hobby users. CopterSystems decided to adapt a UAV specifically to the high-end models of the iXU camera series of the Danish manufacturer Phase One, which is currently one of the highest-resolution and best in photogrammetry, and »build around« the system. As safety is the first priority for all aircraft, the CS-P.O.C. has high redundancy. Equipped with the latest engine technology, it is three times more powerful

than what would normally be required to lift the capacity to weight ratio. Safety and stability are absolutely guaranteed even in strong wind conditions. unyt was assigned to develop the CS-P.O.C. (Phase One Carrier) from the designer‘s point of view. In selecting the manufacturing processes, small and very small series had to be considered. The design is based on the appearance of the camera, which presents itself as precise and very clear with certain accents. Easy to disassemble, the system fits into a flight case and can therefore be easily transported.

With the "CAR2AD-Board" it is possible to combine online marketing and classic out-of-home advertising. For this purpose vehicles are used as mobile poster carriers or banner surfaces. With CAR2AD, content can be uploaded to the digital screens in real time in a location-specific, target group-specific and automated manner. The boards of parked vehicles thus serve as advertising media. Only 2 different tools for the plastic parts have to

be created to not only visually frame the whole board and cover the carrier structure, but also to consider all functional aspects. Nearly all connecting elements are invisibly located on secondary levels and thus make the product appear very clear. The entire design is deliberately reduced in order to keep the focus on the advertising content and still convey a high-quality appearance when switched off.

The project partnership was the outcome of the network program "Berlin Poland" initiated by the International Design Center Berlin (IDZ) The system is designed for the most demanding industrial applications in harsh environments, such as shipyards or offshore. With the new product line, a principle design strategy was also developed at the

same time in order to match the overall appearance of upcoming product developments to the brand. We took special care in developing the design in such a way that the machinery and production methods of the company's own factory were used as much as possible. The benefit was that only a few housing parts had to be purchased from suppliers. (The modular design, which allows certain components to be used in other products, significantly reduces production costs).

The entirely new and patented wheel concept "ContiAdapt" describes an adaptive system with which micro-compressors can be used to adjust both the width of the rim and the air pressure of the tyre during operation of the vehicle. As a result, the tyre contact area changes and allows individual adjustment of the performance

characteristics to current driving conditions. In this way e.g. energy-efficient driving as well as optimized locomotion on slippery surfaces or even snow and black ice are guaranteed. The different conditions are visualized by means of various indicators on the wheel and can thus transport the variability and adaptivity to the outside.

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN WORKSHOP

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN WORKSHOP

The topic of Circular Economy - is increasingly moving into the focus of entrepreneurial thinking and action (especially in the B2B sector). Holistically sustainable product development can play a significant role in this context. Innovative pioneers in this field offer their customers future-oriented added value and thus have a better chance of establishing their position in the market.

In several separately choosable workshop modules that are built upon each other, you have the opportunity to get to know the topic »Sustainable Design«, based on it develop innovative cycle-oriented business models and integrate them step by step into your existing processes.

Together with experts from the Fraunhofer IZM (Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration), we will train you in the interactive workshops to use various sustainable design methods to reduce your ecological footprint while increasing your economic profitability. Industrial design and engineering are combined with sustainable considerations, e.g.

What does the area-related footprint of a machine have to do with the ecological footprint?
How does one support ecological sustainability through "ease-of-use"?
Why does sustainable product development increase customer benefit?

DESIGN THINKING WORKSHOP

DESIGN THINKING WORKSHOP

In times of rapidly developing and competitive markets, it can be important to position your company next to the market-competitors with the help of innovative products and business models.

One possible approach is the application of innovation methods like "Design Thinking", which is used as a multi-phase creative tool to develop target group-oriented solutions for defined problems in a structured iterative process.

The various workshop modules offer you the opportunity to get to know Design Thinking as a strategic business method. Using case studies, you will work in interdisciplinary teams through the individual chronological phases of the process and learn to apply different creative techniques that you can later integrate into your working environment.

UX-RESEARCH WORKSHOP

UX-RESEARCH WORKSHOP

As a manufacturing company you know your product best, but you might not be in the position of your own customers. Through in-depth target group research, cost-intensive correction loops and suboptimally developed features on the final product can be avoided.

Within different workshop modules, which build on each other, you will get first insights into the topic of "UX research". Furthermore, you will be taught the basics of psychological methods by experts and have the opportunity to learn how to apply this knowledge to your own development processes and to use it in your everyday work.
