The Harmony of Chosen Materials with Desired Functions
The strategic design choices behind S-Matik allows the character of the product to be diversified easily according to the needs of installation place through cost effective methods.
For one, forming products of variable lengths is possible due to the selected manufacturing method, aluminum extrusion. This method offers advantages like decrease in cost of mold (since one mold can form varying lengths of the aluminum body), endurance and ease of assembly. Secondly, the electronic LED units have been developed in modular structure at product engineering stage to allow fitting into different sizes of bodies. Lastly, the product comes with exterior frames that are plastic injection parts, softly shaped to integrate with the curves of the aluminum body. These plastic side frames are manufactured in different colors in order to accommodate with the corporate color balance of the place of installation. The frames also contribute to product integrity by covering the assembly details.
S-Matik Display has a soft, logical form shaped by a balanced design which also prioritizes the features of usage.
