ELHA Xpert K / Horizontal milling machine

Based on the manufacturing module, this draft for a horizontal milling machine for the company ELHA matches the new design language. The aim was to establish a complete product family with recognition value that transports competence, quality and down-to-earth impression. The key element, an optical black clamp, re-emerges and supports the solid attitude of the milling machine. Generous, white steel panels generate a lightness which is reinforced by big glass windows. Again, working with color leads to brand specific eye catchers, which distinctively separate user and machine areas.
