Completed projects

Project ŘADA S - Rodina elektronových mikroskopů
Client Tescan
Year 2017
Description The electron microscope is a very complex, accurate and sensitive device. The task was to invent a multi-purpose "fairing" of the chamber with all variants of large accessories, a base case and an operator's desk. The base is a 6 mm thick varnished and bent aluminium sheet with milled edges. This, together with other details, gives the product a hallmark of firmness and originality that distinguishes this device from the competition. The desk is designed as dimensionally variable, it allows application of various levels of equipment, PC cabling is largely hidden in the construction.
