Bartec USA is a market leading manufacturer of industrial tools for the automotive sector. HJC Design were asked to develop a new range of automotive accessories that shared a common family DNA.
Product Design Brief
Bartec USA required HJC’s industrial designers to develop a range of programming fixtures and tools for a new electronic tyre pressure sensor so that it could be programmed to emulate and replace broken electronic tyre sensors on any car.
HJC were in continuous liaison with Bartec’s electronic engineers to assist with the layout of major components, helping to optimise the performance of the product and maintain design intent.
Unique Brand Identity
Injection moulded in ABS, the modern design features an intricate surface wave texture that imitates an ultrasonic wave pattern. Not only does this feature help identify where to locate EZ sensors for perfect operation, it also embodies Bartec USA’s RFID technology within the product, giving them a truly unique brand identity.
Family of Products
In order to create a coherent family of products, HJC Design developed an entire product design language for Bartec USA. This distinctive design DNA has been applied throughout Bartec USA’s product range via surface textures, moulding materials, colour schemes and interface button layout.
