We accompany our customers on their individual transformation with the aim of implementing smart connected devices and IoT services. Our references range from strategic consulting to the interdisciplinary implementation of physical and digital product and service developments.

BORA

Classic 2.0 cooktop extractor system

Central control unit for all functions of the Classic 2.0 cooktop extractor system

Perfect UX design, innovative operating philosophy, modular system for individually combinable hobs.

Together with the BORA development engineers, U-Eperten designed, developed and industrialized the embedded system design for the operating elements and their surfaces. A wide variety of materials, such as glass, was tested for feasibility, functionality and safety. The perfect combination of materials was chosen and certified. An innovative, vertical touch slider was integrated into a smoothed trough on the surface, the Black Vision technology is hidden behind a jet black control panel. In standby mode, it is almost invisible and adapts perfectly to any kitchen environment.

BORA Classic 2.0 is a modular system that enables completely individual hob solutions. Various high-performance hobs such as surface induction, gas or Tepan stainless steel grill, can be freely combined with the extraction system. Even combinations with one, three or more hobs are easily feasible. The product has won all important design awards.

Modular platform for fully automatic coffee machines

Development of a modular platform for mapping an extensive product portfolio of professional fully automatic coffee machines. A quick adaptation to the needs of customers and operators in markets all over the world should be achieved by using a scalable electronics and software platform. The key to success is an extremely high re-use of existing components.

Development and further progression of standardized electronic assemblies for use in fully automatic coffee machines. Based on a central user interface design, the user interface for user-centric operation was paired with an extensive service menu for parameterizing the machine and optimizing the product experience. The robustness of the glass on the touchscreen was matched to the requirements of the food industry. Ultimately, the industrialization was successfully completed alongside the development of the platform itself.

Based on this concept, seven individually marketed coffee machines which largely share the same platform were created. The high level of component intercompatibility allows for easy adaptability for custom projects and perfect product maintenance. Today, the machines are successfully established in numerous well-known food chains and have won many design awards.

WATER PURIFICATION SYSTEM

Milli-Q® IQ 7000

Milli-Q® IQ 7000 is a water purification system for pharmaceutical, clinical, academic or industrial applications.

In order to further consolidate its exceptional position as the world market leader for laboratory water and water treatment systems, a new product family was to be developed based on the current portfolio.

A space-saving solution with a central filter unit. Up to four dispenser units equipped with HMI can be connected. A hybrid user interface of touchscreen and physical wheel for the perfect UX. Technological perfection and maximum user-friendliness are also reflected in the system’s appearance. The organic combination of straight lines and dynamic curves is an expression of absolutely precise, tailor-made industrial design.

SMART.FIRE

SMART.FIRE

Smart Fire Ist eine speziell für die Zahnarztpraxis entwickelte Brenneinheit für alle gängigen Chairside-Materialien. 

Kompakte Bauweise, modernes Design, intuitive Bedienung, zuverlässige Brenntechnik, beständiges Gehäuse und modulare Elektronik

In einem Vorprojekt wurden projektspezifische Anforderungen (modulares Bussystem, Hardware, Software) auf Machbarkeit untersucht. Nach erfolgreicher Machbarkeitsanalyse startete ein interdisziplinäres Team aus Embedded System Design, GUI Software, Applikationssoftware, Konstruktion, Industrie Design und den applikationsspezifischen Spezialisten des Kunden. Gesamtentwicklungszeitraum 15 Monate bis zur Systemintegration, Serienüberführung und erstem Serienlos. Erfolgreicher Launch auf der IDS in Köln. 

Erfolgreiche Markteinführung als neues Produkt für professionelle Zahnarztpraxen. Gewinn eines Red Dot Design Awards. Das System besteht aus der eigentlichen Brenneinheit und einer Steuereinheit mit Touchscreen-Display und grafischer Benutzeroberfläche, dadurch lassen sich die beiden Komponenten flexibel platzieren. Dank kompakter Bauweise fügt sich die Brenneinheit platzsparend und harmonisch in nahezu jedes Praxisumfeld ein. Zuverlässige Funktion mit langlebiger Brenntechnik und ein robustes Gehäuse mit versiegelten Oberflächen runden das System ab. Materialwahl und Programmstart finden in nur einem Schritt statt. Für alle gängigen Chairside-Materialien sind ideal abgestimmte Programme bereits vorinstalliert. Die Menüführung ist übersichtlich und erfolgt über selbsterklärende Programmsymbole. Rundum sichtbare Statusanzeige.
