safe control / User-centred operations interface for textile finishing machines

safe control

Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

Monforts manufactures complex textile finishing machines. For faster and more secure operation of the worldwide used system, a new and innovative interface was developed and designed that replaced the previous system with several interfaces. The main navigation instrument is a virtual magnifier (comparable to a zoom). By scrolling horizontally, the operator can switch from complete overviews to detailed informations. The interface uses a clear and coherent codification, almost without text. It enables quick orientation and interaction. The operating becomes safer, faster and more attractive.
