Coke POPS! with photometric panels from SSA
Coca Cola’s radical new Freestyle vending machine needed a front display panel to stop people in their tracks. Traditional lighting methods resulted in a lacklustre presence, the white ribbon appeared grey and a highly innovative dispenser development appeared dull.
•Low-profile lighting, which emits a uniform, cool light.
•Photometric edge-lighting focused on laser cut acrylic panels, and then custom-printed to achieve highly uniform lighting across a complex shape, all in a low-profile package.
• Bright, uniform light
• True brand palette colour-control.
• Stability assured
SSA is the long-term supply partner to the Coca-Cola corporation.
Photometric lighting is now years ahead
Drink choices are made at the bar but brands struggle to visibly differentiate their identities when they are most needed – at the point of purchase – the P.O.P.
Creating ‘front of mind’ presence in a cluttered, low-light environment was the brief.
These developed effects reinforced market-leading bar equipment and stunning font design. Custom-designed photometric lighting and domed graphics gently highlighted the brands where they needed it most: in front of the buyer at the point of purchase.
Collaborating with existing manufacturers, we developed prototypes that were tested, refined and installed.
• Easy to fit
• No heat on the beverage lines
• Low profile
• Safety assured
• Low voltage.
Fisher & Paykel - Touch panels that handle tough love
The Fisher & Paykel team needed a switching front panel that was waterproof, chemical resistant, sealed and retained high-quality graphics in a cost-effective component.
Conventional switch panels had too many components to be cost-effective and did not achieve the high-tech, modern finish required.
SSA developed innovative printing techniques to create a one-piece moulded front panel, incorporating the key elements into a single cost-effective component while delivering superior life and high quality.
We delivered top quality graphic panels as a subcomponent of a specialised injection moulding process.
• Complex components combined to create a single robust sub-assembly
• High definition graphics still durable
• Parts count reduced, cost reduced and
• functionality increased.
EFTPOS - POS POPS! with plastics protected from button pushers
Provenco’s new EFTPOS device needed a rugged exterior to meet the demands of the oil industry combined with high-tech good looks. The device needed to be tough while providing a high level of functionality and cost-effective components. The typical solution would require several parts, each adding expense and complexity.
SSA developed innovative ink technology combined with a sophisticated, distortion printing process to produce a self-contained skin ready for thermo-forming into the final shape.
SSA delivered a single formed skin incorporating the graphics, surface finishes and display windows all in a continuous (sealed) surface.
• Sealed surface eliminates ingress points
• Durability increased, cost reduced
• High quality, with innovative styling options.
