Hello everyone, this time the product story, ID engineer introduced to you is the development process of EHS100 electro-hydraulic servo machine.
EHS100 series electro-hydraulic servo machine is the latest integrated servo product developed by our company. It has many advantages such as high intelligence, strong power, excellent performance, adaptability, convenient installation and comprehensive functions.
Relying on the PLM R&D management system, about the EHS100 development process, the departments closely cooperate, the research and development process is three-dimensional, systematic, traceable, to ensure the rigor and scientific nature of the product.
Next, this article will describe the birth of EHS100 from the perspective of an ID engineer.
The original intention of VEICHI to develop the EHS100 series of integrated servo products is to solve the difficult points and enhance the experience of users. At present, most of the servo motors and drivers on the market are installed independently. Users often face some problems when they use them, such as: large space, constant transportation, complicated wiring, inconvenient use, and so on.
In response to these difficult points, the project team defined the core design concept of EHS100 at the beginning of development: integrating the servo drive and the servo motor to form a highly integrated and integrated product.
After a lot of market research and many analysis and discussion, the project team unanimously determined that the ID requirements of EHS100 products are: integrated, reliable, efficient, beautiful and easy to use.
While meeting the above requirements, ID engineers must ensure the brand, family and continuity of new products in the design process, while taking into account cost factors.
1. Conceptual design stage
The core requirement of EHS100 electro-hydraulic servo is to integrate servo drive and servo motor into a highly integrated product, so the appearance of this product needs to be designed based on the shape of the motor.
On this basis, ID engineers first draw sketches and communicate with structural engineers and hardware engineers. Some of these sketches have a high degree of completion, and some are just outlines. The focus is on the idea of expression and record design, exploring the feasibility of various options, and laying the foundation for future design work.
2. Summary design phase
In the summary stage of the design, based on the results obtained in the concept stage, it is necessary to balance the needs of all aspects of software, hardware, and structure, and gradually narrow the scope of the experiment. The image of the product is clear and specific step by step.
At the end of the summary phase, the prototype of the EHS100 has been formed, and the CMF of the product has been basically determined; at the same time, the main appearance elements of the product, such as the keyboard position, terminal position, fan and radiator position, have also been clarified, and a more delicate design can be developed to adjust the details of the product.
3. Detail design and sample stage
For a product, the details see the quality, for the design worker, people who'll embark on a 100-mile journey may still fall by the way side when they have finished 90 miles. The more in the later stages of design, the more it is necessary to repeatedly scrutinize and polish the details of the product.
After finalizing the product details, I finally ushered in product proofing. Through the sample, you can have a more intuitive understanding of the design results. In the process, you may find some 3D models and renderings that are not visible.
At this stage, the team will repeatedly compare the 3D model with the real thing, constantly adjust and adjust the design plan, narrow the gap between the “seller show” and the “buyer show”. Finally, we can get trial production, mass production of products, and hand over a high score to the market and users.
The above content is from the perspective of ID engineers to describe the process of the birth of EHS100. In the actual work process, all departments must continuously communicate, discuss, and modify each other under the leadership of the project leader. Among the dominant factors, the balance point and the optimal solution are sought to produce the final product design.
In the future, VEICHI will continue to drive an endless R&D attitude: strive for excellence, strive to make products better, and give customers a better experience.
