Example-Project: Joystick

Requirements of the customer

  • Quantity: 500 – 1,500 pieces per year (small series)
  • Development time: 5 – 6 months
  • Target: Individual joystick in three versions (5, 6 and 15 buttons)
  • low investment costs / cost of parts
  • suitable for heavy-duty applications
  • Batch Traceability


  • Economic production of the foamed handle, despite the three versions with 5, 6 or 15 buttons
  • Use of common parts to reduce parts and manufacturing costs
  • less space makes the assembly of the joystick more difficult
  • Visually flawless and suitable for daily use

COOP’s Approach

  • Comparison of different foams and surface structures for the production of the head
  • Component search for suitable push buttons, which can also be individualized (laser engraved symbols)
  • Cable assembly of the cables for the buttons
  • Development of rubber bellows
  • Component assembly adapted to small lot sizes
