Karl Storz




The Challenge:

KARL STORZ – the leading endoscope manufacturer – offers systems for human and veterinary medicine as well as for industrial applications. Endoscopes, instruments, devices, and camera systems from KARL STORZ have stood for tradition, advanced technology, and quality for more than 70 years.

Karl Storz presented these preliminary specifications for a portable demo unit:

  • Split the unit into two levels, to separate the lighting between the top and bottom
  • Use 8U rack for equipment
  • Hinged doors
  • Compact, cannot be larger than 30” in depth and width
  • Needs a shipping crate with the ability to store the touch panel and display piece separately
  • Cutouts for front wall plates
  • All equipment on the top will be non-functional
  • A computer will be placed on one of the levels
  • Need blue lighting to highlight the product
  • Logos are blue and to be backlit
  • Bottom is opaque white, except for logos
  • All sides of equipment on top level are visible
  • A lock on the unit

The Solution:

After a few emails back and forth to narrow down the possibilities, Exhibit Network was ready to receive the equipment from Karl Storz to finalize dimensions and begin production.  The completed demo unit features the following:

  • A quick release mount for the detachable monitor
  • A designated area in the crate for the monitor
  • Laminate finish
  • LED lighting
  • Flush mount power receiver, on back
  • 180 degree lockable hinged door
  • Space for computer and other items inside the cabinet
  • Soft rolling no-mar locking wheels for portability
  • Customized crate with a ramp for easy loading and unloading

When the demo unit was complete, it was shipped to Karl Storz so it could begin its multiple journeys across the United States.
