Capital goods design

Nowadays, designs in mechanical engineering are becoming more of a decisive buying factor. Where technology, quality and price of the different providers is comparable, design is decisive. Industrial design belongs to the soft sales factors which have a significant contribution to the success of a product. The central tasks of the technical design are the shape and color conception, the brand and corporate design developments, and of course the improvement of the user experience with a machine. In the foreground, these are always the specific target groups and the optimization of the central handling processes.

When designing a product, another essential target of the design in mechanical engineering is the emotionalization of the product. The product shows its specific and technical innovation by a special appearance and exceptional design. Our numerous and very successful projects convinces people with a striking design, formal long-life cycle, brand identity forms and the innovative use of material. We are distinguished by our decades of experience in technical design, the extensive industry knowledge and also our numerous design awards, which we receive for our work every year.

Human factors and ergonomics (HF&E) aka comfort design, functional design, and user-friendly systems, is a multidisciplinary field incorporating contributions from psychology, engineering, biomechanics, mechanobiology, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry. In essence it is the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. The two terms "human factors" and "ergonomics" are essentially synonymous.
Human factors and ergonomics is concerned with the "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments. It takes account of the user's capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that tasks, functions, information and the environment suit each user.
