Development of door interior for a premium refrigerator (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete är utfört i samarbete med AB Electrolux Mariestadfabriken som arbetar med produktutveckling och tillverkning av kyl- och frysskåp. Uppdraget var att utveckla ett helhetskoncept för insidan på en kylskåpsdörr i premiumsegmentet med fokus på infästning och modularisering av balkonger. Kylskåpet som helhetskonceptet ska placeras i har en inredning av rostfritt stål, vilket innebär att de lösningar som i dagsläget tillämpas för kylsdörren inte kan användas.

Projektet inleddes med en undersökning av bakgrunden till uppdraget samt en förstudie där målgruppen definierades, konkurrenter identifierades och kraven från användarna samlades in. Efter detta följde en grundlig konceptframtagningsfas som innefattade generering av idéer, skapande av koncept, konceptval och detaljutveckling.

Det slutliga helhetskonceptet visualiserades med en prototyp som erbjuder steglös justering av kylskåpsdörrens balkonger. Grundkonstruktionen består av två strängpressade aluminiumprofiler som har en dold infästning på dörren. På profilerna placeras konsoler som balkongerna sedan monteras på. Konsolerna fungerar som balkongernas sidor och döljer en låsningsmekanism som fixerar balkongerna i höjdled med hjälp av friktion.

Helhetskonceptet som utvecklats uppfyller de krav som initialt ställdes upp för produkten, dock kvarstår ytterligare vidareutveckling för att helhetskonceptet ska kunna sättas i produktion.

Abstract [en]

This degree project is performed in collaboration with AB Electrolux Mariestad factory that works with product development and manufacturing of refrigerators and freezers. The task was to develop an overall concept of the inside of a refrigerator door in the premium segment with focus on attachment and modularization of balconies. The refrigerator that the overall concept will be placed in has an interior of stainless steel, which means that the solutions that are currently practiced for the refrigerator door cannot be used.

The project began with an investigation of the background for the task and a pilot study where the target group was defined, the competitors were identified and requirements from the users were collected. This was followed by a thorough concept development phase, which included generation of ideas, creation of concepts, concept selection and development of details.

The final overall concept was visualized with a prototype, which offers continuous adjustment of balconies on the refrigerator door.  The basic construction consists of two extruded aluminium profiles, which have a concealed attachment on the door. On the profiles consoles are placed, on which the balconies are then assembled. The consoles serve as sidepieces for the balconies and hide a locking mechanism that fixates the balconies vertically by means of friction.

The overall concept that has been developed fulfils the requirements that initially were set up for the product, however additional further development remains for the overall concept to be brought into production.
