The front-end solution allows equipment operators to control the wrapping processes by specifying various settings including load weight, shape, and size, and facilitates repeat data entry by storing load parameters.
The Softeq team also helped the client refactor and optimize embedded software developed by a 3rd-party vendor. Even though the client did not provide a detailed project specification, Softeq managed to investigate the subject to the full extent and made a valuable contribution to the project.
HMI and Embedded Software for Stretch Wrapping Machines
Lantech, a company that manufactures stretch wrapping machines for warehouses, planned to release a new generation of stretch wrappers with touchscreen displays. The company turned to Softeq to design a front-end solution that would help equipment operators interface with their stretch wrappers, and provide project rescue services to their firmware team.Show Case Study
The customer teamed up with Softeq to carry out their idea of original curved wrist phone concept. The initial requirement was to develop a prototype that would demonstrate specific capabilities in an unconventional form-factor. The smartphone's features included NFC, a touchscreen, sensors, cameras, and gesture recognition for emergency alerts.
Given the ‘next gen’ nature of the solution, the service provider was expected to take the idea beyond the “Vision and Scope” statement. Softeq met the selection criteria: an experienced service provider with relevant hardware design and software development skills.
Curved Screen Wrist Smartphone
Softeq handled development across several areas — hardware, enclosure, and software. The smartphone prototype required a custom rigid-flex PCB to underlie the curved device design. The prototype hardware needed to support some smart capabilities.Show Case Study
