The CN-Seamless Mach 1 is a metal fabricator's dream come true. The innovative product merges precision robotics with portability, helping reshape industry production. Equipped with an oxy-fuel attachment, craftsmen can effortlessly shape steel up to 12" thick. The Mach 1 features a swift setup time of under 5 minutes and an intuitive interface that mirrors familiar cutting methods. Its compact build enables easy transport and storage, making it an ideal companion for any work site. Arrow North collaborated with the three founders of CN-Seamless to strategize, plan, design, and develop a user-friendly touchscreen interface for controlling the CN-Seamless Mach 1.

Challenge

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla, ut commodo diam libero vitae erat. Aenean faucibus nibh et justo cursus id rutrum lorem imperdiet. Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

The founding team recognized the need for assistance with designing and developing the Human-Machine Interface (HMI) essential for controlling their machine. Upon joining the team, we discovered that the challenge included a basic UI prototype for machine control that lacked the intuitive features characteristic of a traditional professional HMI. It became evident that users without specific training would struggle with the current interface, prompting the development of an initial software version before rolling it out to eagerly awaiting new customers.

Result

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla, ut commodo diam libero vitae erat. Aenean faucibus nibh et justo cursus id rutrum lorem imperdiet. Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

From concept to a fully-fledged HMI, the project took around eight to ten weeks, a rapid timeline given the complexity of integrating the UI with the machinery. As highlighted in previous articles, speed is the key to a successful project and startup. The Arrow North team diligently crafted an intuitive user experience, enabling the company to advance in client delivery and future sales, accelerating the product's market entry.
