The goal of the project was develop more stylish, ergonomic, and lower-cost payment ATMs accepting cash and credit cards. The work was started by defining the features and the client’s special requirements for the device in cooperation with the client. Being watertight, corrosion resistant, temperature variance tolerance, serviceability and secure locking mechanisms were features that also had to be considered.
Elmo Design Oy completely redesigned the payment ATM, while still utilizing previously designed components. The client used the following Elmo Design Oy services in the project: design with ergonomics reviews, mechanical design and project management. A very important phase of project management included providing instructions for the prototype runs and material sourcing. The complete ATM has less components than before and production suitability was improved using robotics, for example. Our workmanship can now be seen at nearly all gas stations.
