Industrial Data storage

Industrial Design project working around tight parameters
Project Info:
  • Project: Industrial Data Storage
  • Industry: Tech
  • Materials: Injection Moulding & Sheet Metal

Sever room, rack mounted, large scale and ‘cloud’ data storage unit.

Working with a start up company who had the base of a killer product and class leading technology to deliver award winning aesthetics and usability.

SEAMLESS DESIGN
Working very closely with the injection moulder to eliminate any visible manufacturing marks and assembly screws from visible faces.
EMC SHEILDING
Internal copper cage interlocks with main body and next hard drive bay to minimise EMC interference.
USABILITY
Two step insertion / removal process ensures that hard drives cannot be accidentally removed whilst providing easy one handed accessibility.
AIRFLOW
Maximum airflow through the front faces give even airflow over the hard drives through the control PCB’s and out through the power supplies.
DESIGN FOR ASSEMBLY
Rapid prototypes were used extensively to prove design concept and to reduce component assembly time.
