User-friendly console for Stage Electrics


Client: Stage Electrics

Sector: Design & Manufacturing

Project: OpusSystem central console

Material: Mild Steel

Machinery: Laser, fold, weld


 AEntertainment technical solutions company, Stage Electrics, turned to Emsea’s Engineers to help design and manufacture a new product for housing video, sound and lighting in a single user friendly console.
The final product is a console at the heart of the company’s new OpusSystem, a highly flexible system designed to deliver technical solutions to the education sector. The final product required an aesthetic yet practical mild steel casing.

 “We had concepts from industrial product designers but we needed assistance in making the concepts a reality. We required a company that could work with these concepts, in line with our overall design principles to produce a finished, commercially viable solution” commented Richard Thompson, Operations Manager at Stage Electrics.

He continued: “We have worked with Emsea before and I have been impressed by their contribution to past design briefs.  Emsea offer state of the art equipment, engineering expertise and a proactive attitude, I felt confident they would be able to overcome the technical challenges and produce us a solution.”

“From prototype through to manufacture, with numerous design tweaks along the way, Emsea came up with solutions for us within some very challenging timeframes.”

The team at Emsea were eager to take on the challenge: “We really excel in this area,” observed Chris Sweet, Director at Emsea Ltd, “Our engineers have the experience and passion to transform an idea into a finished solution.”

Chris continued: “Richard spent many hours working in collaboration with our team, drawing on their skills and expertise.”

However, the project did not end at the design stage, as Emsea were able to oversee the entire process, manufacturing the finished units and even sourcing the correct paint finish and advising on other aspects of the supply chain.

Thompson noted: “The OpusSystem has been very successful for us and has changed the approach to audio-visual solutions in the education sector. It has a real ‘wow’ factor – aesthetically it looks great and its well thought out form offers real practical advantages to users.”
