When it comes to design, industrial inkjet printers might not be there with iPods and Audis, but the industry is waking up to the fact that good design can bring benefits even to products on the factory floor. What design does is give a product an immediate impact when up against competition, this is seen in the Videojet 1510 ink-jet printer with industrial design by DesignEdge, which is easy to operate via its intuitive user interface, dual position door and simplified fluid replacement system.
Cost, says Alasdair Barnett, need not be a barrier to good design: “Contrary to popular opinion, design can actually save money and add product value. We can achieve this through choice of material, manufacturing techniques and suppliers. So good design can really be open to everyone.”
