High-Tech & Design
Since the New York Times first used the term "high tech" way back in 1957 to describe Europe as being characterized by a high population density and level of technology, the concentration of scientific knowledge has become increasingly more advanced. These technologies reach an even higher level when they are applied to the industrial production sector with exceptional results.
Industrial design plays the crucial role of transferring these technologies and knowledge from the scientific world to the production sector and rendering them more accessible and suitable for industrial application. There are two primary objectives: to succeed in combining different technologies and conditions of use in the machinery, and to make the machines safe and simple for the operators.
Ease of use and ergonomics enable the operator to be faster and have greater precision in the performance of his tasks. This is a perfect application of lean manufacturing techniques.
Experimentation with new materials to build increasingly reliable machines makes them capable of withstanding great stress for lengthy periods. The result is lower production costs and an extension of the useful lifeaccording to the logic of less waste.
Design manages to convey the technological excellence behind the products and increases their perceived value.
