Client- DW Digital Wireless Inc.
Upon the successful completion of the design and development of the iMax, we were tested again by the client to design the Vector 800. It is a sibling of the iMax with a much smaller footprint. The new hardware and ergonomic requirements, however, did not allow a straightforward scaling. Our biggest challenge was to generate a well-organized mechanical design for such a compact enclosure that offers similar functions of the iMax. In addition, the client wanted the flexibility of using the same tool to mold a variation, without some of the control features; thus buttons on the front housing are meant to be replaceable. A last minute challenge was the addition of a back plate to act as a visual cue for the placement of the credit card.
