Abstract:This report details the design process used to create a new housing for the ATVS-2020, the Auto-matic Temperature and Velocity Scanner, designed and manufactured by Advanced Thermal Solu-tions, Inc. ATS has redesigned the internal hardware and wanted a new housing to give it a mod-ern and professional appearance. To find out more information, research was carried out on its users, the device itself and the mar-ket situation. This provided a list of requirements which could be used to guide and evaluate the design work. A number of ideas and concepts were generated, leading to a final design. The final design consists of a box with an indentation at the front and rounded edges, surrounded with bands of heavier metal, giving the housing a tough appearance. It is made of two parts, each made of folded sheetmetal, spotwelded into a box shape. The two halves can slide onto each oth-er, thus forming the final design.
