SATGO Portable Satellite TV
Market Sector: Consumer Products
Description and Scope of Project
SATGO is a durable, light-weight portable Satellite TV with 17 inch display. We were contracted to develop and model the SATGO plastics enclosure while managing strict weight and thermal requirements. We worked closely with both the industrial design firm and the contract manufacturer to engineer a product that met a cost point and could be manufactured in volume quantities. For this project we provided extensive mechanical and electrical solutions via analysis, modeling, and a successful new product introduction (NPI) transition.
Results and Project Value
We were able to meet the aggressive weight requirements of 25lbs by creating a manufacturable design and selecting innovative materials for production. Through extensive DFMA studies, the product unit cost was reduced by 12% from the Pilot release.
