Award-winning Digital Color Printer Reduced in Volume by 36%
The Good Design Award 2006 is hosted by the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization, commissioned by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
OKI Printing Solutions is the world's second largest digital color printer manufacturer in market share, and represented in 120 countries worldwide. The company's award-winning digital color printer is the first product developed based on a new product design strategy of S3 -- SMART, SIMPLE, SOLID.
CoCreate's Dynamic Modeling(TM) based approach to 3D product development supports Oki Data's development strategy by offering the company ease of use while enabling fast and flexible response to unexpected changes throughout product development. Time to market and rapid product evolution are pressures characteristic of the high-tech electronics and machinery industry, for which CoCreate is best suited.
OKI Printing Solutions reduced the volume of the printer by 36% compared to previous models, making it lighter and the smallest within its class. The radical miniaturization of the product was achieved through a complete examination of the design and finding opportunities to combine parts and make reductions in size.
"CoCreate offers us the advanced capabilities needed for our design process while contributing to our shortened product development cycles," said Mr. Masanori Maekawa, Director of the Mechanical Development Center for NIP Operational Headquarters, Oki Data Corporation.
The C3400n is a network-ready color printer with the legendary reliability of OKI Printing Solutions products -- all in a sleek, compact desktop unit.
