Energy Efficiency Improvement

Home Appliances

The Need

Energy efficiency regulations continue to push the boundaries requiring continuous improvements to the state-of-the-art technologies. This means the industry needs to introduce advanced materials at an appropriate cost for both cold and hot applications.

In particular, a global home appliances manufacturer approached BlueThink with the issue, seeking an affordable solution to increase the products energy rating of domestic ovens.

The Project

Based on our experience, we carried out a Technology Scouting activity to find possible solutions, including disruptive and incremental options.

Although an interesting span of solutions was identified, an innovative material coming from the automotive industry offered a sensible performance improvement, as well as a cost reduction.

Through our expertise in simulation, prototyping, design for manufacturing and testing, we were able to offer a validated solution with a clear path to industrialization.

The Benefit

This project offered the client the opportunity to considerably improve their product energy efficiency rate without affecting the BOM cost.
