design, a ‘wall’ with a removable water reservoir, is compact,
user friendly and distinctive. Also new is the material: Protact, a steel

Novel joining technique: PIF
Also, Inventum and
Corus decided to produce the coffee and tea maker with a novel joining
technique: polymer-injection-forming (PIF). This technique, developed
by Corus, allows to integrate the structural stiffness of steel and the
versatility of polymer injection. Rather than assembling the appliance
from separate steel and plastic parts, the design works with hybrid steel-plastic
parts created by PIF.
