Woodhead Industries develops and manufactures industrial automation and electrical products in 21 locations that span 10 countries in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Woodhead was looking to create a market opportunity with a generic platform for a wide range of rugged industrial applications. XentiQ was commissioned to design this platform that would be both ergonomically viable and functional for such industrial applications. A thoroughly-planned design concept was crucial for the success of this project.

Four industrial design concepts were methodically conceived by XentiQ’s team and presented to Woodhead in the form of sketches. This was to facilitate the initial feedback and selection process.

The initially selected industrial designs (ID) were then rendered in CAD software to add refinement to the sketches’ visual effects and presentation.

After Woodhead selected one of the presented designs, XentiQ set to work on component layout and overall mechanical dimensions.

XentiQ included a cradle design as per Woodhead’s final feedback before proceeding to the production of prototypes.

The final manufactured product was both elegant and suited for industrial applications.
