Grease splashes, wet fingers, complex device menus & children’s hands on hot surfaces – especially when you’re in a hurry, the dream kitchen quickly becomes a cooking nightmare.

But cooking can be so much easier.

Let us give you some ideas on how you can use HAPTICORE and its smart haptic feedback to make the operation of your kitchen appliances simple, safe, and intuitive.

Products are becoming increasingly versatile, connected and offer more and more functions. And this trend has also arrived in the kitchen.

But especially when it comes to cooking, where many things happen at the same time and hands rarely stay dry and clean, the need for easy-to-use HMIs is essential for a pleasant cooking experience. This poses a major challenge for OEMs since mechanical switches and rotaries are not capable of handling the desired degree of complexity any more, whereas touch displays simply do not offer a comparable level of precision and control.

But with HAPTICORE, we give you the best of both worlds – programmable haptic feedback for the simple, safe, and intuitive operation of complex multi-layer user interfaces.

And HAPTICORE is much more than just a haptic rotary switch. It can offer a whole new level of guided cooking, make the user experience of connected smart home devices even more seamless, and thanks to smart haptic feedback modes, can make cooking safer for the entire family.

Thereby high-end materials, premium quality made in Austria, and multifarious customization options guarantee uncompromising product design.

There are few rooms that are used as intensively as the kitchen. That’s why the focus is not just on functionality, but also on inspiring and equally timeless design – both in terms of product and user interface design.

But we live in a time when devices offer more and more functions and operation becomes increasingly complex. For this reason, there is a need for innovative operating solutions ensuring ease of use of new smart functions, while meeting the unique challenges of the kitchen environment.

With HAPTCORE and freely programmable haptic feedback, you bring back simplicity and intuitiveness to your kitchen appliances – without compromising on product design.

We’ve designed our HAPTICORE products to be adaptable to your product design, thanks to various mounting options and custom covers. This way, HAPTICORE can become a highlight or disappear within the surface of your appliance to give space to clean lines and flat surfaces. At the same time, its robust materials and premium finish ensure easy cleaning, fingerprint resistance, and durability for an entire kitchen lifetime!

Safety functions for increased safety and control

Maximum user control, through mechanical haptic feedback

HAPTICORE makes the use of your kitchen appliances not only easier and more intuitive but also safer. Safety in the kitchen is an important topic and especially relevant for families with young children.

Use HAPTICORE for parental control functions:

Physically lock your appliances via a smartphone app when you are not in the kitchen or design a safety lock feature that requires the knob to be turned with a certain torque to unlock.

Our customer integration team will be happy to assist you in creating and fine-tuning device-specific haptic feedback modes.

When guided cooking becomes even more intuitive

Haptic feedback for an easy and safe cooking experience

Turn, press, serve and enjoy. Smart cooking can be this simple, and HAPTICORE makes guided cooking even more intuitive and safe.
