Our long-term client MKTest Systems is a manufacturer of specialist electrical and electronic test equipment used in the construction and maintenance of aircraft, trains, and military equipment. The development team at MKT had developed a new wire harness test system that would enable an engineer to instantly check wiring integrity of harnesses during installation. The system instantly detects faults such as open circuits, shorts circuits, miss wires or inversions and allows them to be corrected in real time. MKTs inhouse design team had proved the concept with a test rig and asked HPDL to design an MKT brand matched enclosure for the processor unit.
HPDL prepared a range of sketch concepts and refined the concepts to a selection of photorealistic images. The final design was realised as a CNC machined prototype and built into a high-quality, pre-production demonstrator to launch the new harness test system to the industry.
