Robot parts are quite extra-ordinary objects and when displayed need extra-ordinary frames.
Framing for Automata Technologies launch of their 'Eva' robotic arm included displaying it's anatomy of metal gearboxes and robotic circuit boards. Each object was to be mounted within 5 frames as a scientific collection.
The frames needed to be extra deep with bespoke attachments to float mount the gear boxes. We kept them all the same depth for uniformity using wooden box frames and double extensions, along with a Matt Black Spray Painted hand finish for a contemporary ultra-smooth effect.
Grey cotton core mounts with grey spacers gave the frames a smart, elegant interior letting the colours of the circuit boards shine like jewels. With acrylic glazing for ease of transportation, the display will travel to robotic fairs and scientific demonstrations.
'Eva' the robotic arm has been developed by Automata Technologies as an affordable robot, helpful in automating small manufacturing businesses and other workplace set-ups.

Collectable memorabilia offers some unique framing challenges. As well as framing them appropriately, conservation must be considered.
This collection of boxer's career cards were double-sided which prevented the use of tapes and adhesives. They could have been held in place and mounted using different methods including using archival plastic sleeves or corner pockets. Our client was not keen on these since they would be visible and could be distracting. Instead we mounted the cards holding them in place with a tray method, this way they were viewable in near entirety and easily removable.
For 20 boxing cards and also a gold title card, a particular multi-aperture mount pattern was requested by our client. The pattern was a dynamic shape and worked very well with the sports and boxing theme.
Our client decided on a black conservation mount with black cotton core, which complimented the colourful boxing images.
A gold metal leaf slip was added to the smooth, traditionally shaped, matt black lacquer frame to opulently define the inside edge. UV filtered glass was used to reduce fading with an anti-reflective coating for optimum clarity.
