About the Company
JAVAR is a Colombian-based company focused on industrial kitchen equipment. For more than 30 years, JAVAR has been part of the transformation of the butcher industry in Colombia. Contributing to build products that meet compliance with stricter sanitary standards.
The brief for the project was simple: To redesign the commercial meat-grinder family range MC( 12, 22, 32M ), To compete internationally with the most renowned brands in the area. The products were required meet international standards for occupational safety and sanitation.
Our process started with an in-depth research phase in which we learned how these machines are built and about the butcher industry of Colombia as well as the U.S. with these findings, we gained valuable knowledge that helped us guide the design of the project. We sketched a wide variety of different ideas to give the product a robust and easy to clean look. After down-selecting our design ideas, we began to define how the machine will be manufactured, keeping the number of parts low and capable of adapting to different model sizes. After several rounds of cad development and working closely with engineers, we had enough data to begin prototyping and testing
