TPI scan – portable tera scanner
The TPI Scan and TPI Core systems are a range of portable stand-alone scanners for medical and non-medical imaging. The images are generated using terahertz radiation – the last unexplored region of the radio wave and light spectrum. Creactive Design ID was charged with creating a vision for their design.
Our main consideration was flexibility of use, as the scanners were designed for a range of applications. We also ensured the design allowed for easy access to serviceable parts and low volume production.
The constraints of the mild steel fabrication and aluminium castings manufacturing route, due to small numbers, was a great challenge that led to a minimal, clean, timeless design appearance.
