Gemeinnütziger Einsatz

Unsere Kollegin Elisabeth hat einen Monat lang Freiwilligendienst auf Lesbos geleistet und wertvolle Erfahrungen gesammelt, die sie mit uns geteilt hat. Bei CaderaDesign ist uns Nachhaltigkeit, auch in sozialen Dingen, besonders wichtig, daher war es für uns selbstverständlich, ihr eine gemeinnützige freie Zeit zu ermöglichen. Ihre Arbeit erfolgte über Eurorelief, eine griechische NGO, die seit 2005 international aktiv ist. Wir haben ihr ein paar Fragen über ihre Erfahrungen gestellt, weil wir von ihrem Engagement beeindruckt waren und möchten das Interview gerne teilen – vielleicht wird ja jemand davon inspiriert und möchte auch aktiv werden.

Throw the aluminum profiles out of series production!

How can design projects be financed through clever manufacturing savings and strengthen the brand at the same time? Our article shows how designers can not only improve product quality, but also make production more cost-efficient and increase profits. A look behind the scenes shows how even small decisions can have a big impact. Because good design means

  • Economical production
  • Improved ergonomics
  • Visual appeal

Presentation at VDMA Praxistag

Our colleague David Sauer will be a speaker at the VDMA Practical Day "AI in Mechanical and Plant Engineering" on June 12, 2024 in Frankfurt am Main. The presentation will highlight the importance of Explainable AI (XAI), i.e. the goal of opening up previous "AI black boxes" and making them transparent for users. David's contribution promises to provide an important impetus in the application of "human-centered" AI - a topic that has recently gained significant relevance with the adoption of the AI Act. The VDMA Practical Day is aimed at machine and plant manufacturers and offers a good opportunity to discuss current AI developments in the industry.

VDMA Practical Day: "AI in mechanical and plant engineering"
When: 12.6.24
Where: Frankfurt am Main
Lecture title: Understanding, trust, progress: Added value and opportunities

AI research project

Research project on empirical knowledge in mechanical engineering
In our research project "Inknow", we are investigating how knowledge can be made available quickly and efficiently in medium-sized companies, especially in mechanical engineering, using AI. The joint project with Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the companies neogramm GmbH, HPM Technologie GmbH and KRESS Fahrzeugbau GmbH focuses on the role of interfaces in transferring and applying various teaching and knowledge approaches. The project is supported by the BMBF as part of the "Innovative working environments in SMEs" funding line

UX and design pay off

We are pleased that the interview with Tom Cadera on this important topic has been published a second time.
If you missed the interview in Konstruktionspraxis, this is your chance to read it in MaschinenMarkt and find out about:

  • how the success of machines, plants and equipment can be increased through UX & Design
  • how designers can contribute to sustainable and cost-effective (sheet metal) design and development
  • why usability and ergonomics go hand in hand
- kopra-interview-1.jpg

Interview Tom Cadera

On the occasion of the company's 30th anniversary, Ute Drescher from Konstruktionspraxis conducted an interview with Tom Cadera. They talked about how important a well thought-out user concept is for industrial design and ultimately for the success of machines, systems and devices. "Usability is the logical continuation of ergonomics thinking from the analogue to the digital world", Tom Cadera emphasises and explains the importance of an "Overall User Experience", a positive overall experience of the user with all man-machine interfaces.

Certificate for 30-year anniversary

Cheers to 30 years! Dr. Sascha Genders, CEO of the Würzburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK), presented us with a certificate for our 30-year anniversary and raised a glass of champagne with us to celebrate this event.

What started at the dining table has grown into a company with 25 permanent and many freelance employees. Without the commitment of our great team, this success story would not have been possible. We would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts who has supported us along the way, first and foremost our customers who have placed their trust in us - some for more than two decades!

We are celebrating 30 years of CaderaDesign

We are celebrating 30 years of CaderaDesign and would like to thank our partners and clients for the interest in our work, the exciting commissions and cooperations as well as the trusting collaboration - perhaps even over thirty years. We are proud to have served numerous medium-sized companies as well as large corporations over the years. We have also pursued our two mainstays, user interface design and industrial design, from the very beginning and have always developed them further.

An overall user experience of products that combines user interface and industrial design will continue to be an important focus for us in the future. We are also increasingly concerned with the issue of sustainability and the possibility of involving ourselves not only in technological progress, but also in society. We want to continue to design ergonomic workplaces that are a pleasure to work in and make the added value of design tangible, tangible and also measurable, above all for users in industry.
