The Xylem rQPOD water survey vehicle is a leading solution for hydrographic (water characteristics) and bathymetric (water depth) measurements. LUMA helped the Xylem team simplify the waterproof electronics housing whilst also optimising the design for injection moulding production. This change from vacuum casting to injection moulding reduced the manufacturing costs by approximately 50% (check this figure) and entirely eliminated the lengthy machining processes that were previously required, leading to a further saving of X%.
