OPI: A Recent Success Story

OPI, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of nail polish and acrylic nails, had a recent requirement to redesign their industrial line of nail dryers.

 

OPI presented to Ayu Piranti, some basic objectives:

  • The dryer had to accommodate both manicures, and pedicures.
  • Internal heat needed to be below a threshold that would not cause discomfort to the user.
  • The interface needed to be simple, allowing the manicurist the ability to quickly and easily operate the dryer.
  • The dryer had to be UL approved.
  • The design had to be turn-key, complete with the dryer in a box, with all necessary paperwork.

 

Ayu Piranti’s engineers worked closely with the OPI team each step of the way, ensuring that each component exceeded OPI’s requirements. Using our state-of-the-art design software, Ayu’s engineers developed comprehensive 3D renderings, and incorporated key features that ultimately proved to be highly received by OPI. These features included:

  • Integrated internal temperature control solution using a series of vents and fans to ensure proper air circulation.
  • Body sensor which sensed the presence of a hand or foot, and automatically turned the dryer on.
  • Automatic timer solution set at 15, 30, 45, and 60 second intervals, allowing the manicurist to determine the cure time using a simple capsense touch interface.

 

With final approval of all engineering documents, Ayu Piranti built prototype units for final testing and client presentation. The prototypes were well received by the OPI team, and proved to be highly successful and far exceeded OPI’s initial objectives. An order was released for the first several thousand units, and Ayu Piranti went about ramping from the prototype stage, to the fulfillment stage.

 

To date, Ayu Piranti has fulfilled tens of thousands of turn-key dyers to the OPI team which, in turn, has fulfilled their worldwide pipeline. From concept to fulfillment, Ayu Piranti worked closely with OPI to deliver the perfect solution at a cost that OPI opined was far lower than they had initially expected.
