Trade show exhibit Oerlikon

Presentation of a product family

For the Swiss company Oerlikon Surface Solutions AG, we have created a complete series of 1:5 models. All design models are precisely designed presentation models, used at fairs and exhibitions, as well as in their own showroom. The aim of these models is, to simplify the visualization of the complex functions of the products and to convey a prefect impression of the machine design.

Communication of the core functions

Especially, we focused on the detailed elaboration of the core functions. Thus, when the door is opened, an automatic mode is activated, which turns on the spindle rotation and simulates the coating process by means of a light sequence.

All models have a base plate with integrated iPad, which gives trade fair visitors the opportunity to view animations and to find explanations about the system. In this way, the outstanding properties of the system can be interactively communicated.

"Human-machine interface (HMI)"

The abbreviation „Human Machine Interface“ can be translated into German with „Benutzerschnittstelle“ and can be also called „Man-Machine-Interface“ (MMI). The HMI allows the user to operate a machine, to define process parameters and to observe machine conditions and processes. Modern HIM systems run on software, which enable an intuitive interaction.
