The design should follow below requests:

1.The design should only involve sheer mechanical parts to realise the adjustment function with no electrical structure.
2.The operation should be simple and stable. Both left and right sides should keep synchronicity during adjustment.
3.The new bottle holder should be able to be easily disassembled.
4.The design should allow single-hand operation.

Performance parameters requirement:

1. Location: the bottle holder is inlaid on the door body.
2. Life cycle: 3,000 times.
3. Work temperature range: 0 ℃ to + 10 ℃;
Humidity range: 10% to 95% RH (Relative Humidity). The parts involved should not rust in this environment.

Requested partner

European universities, companies or research institutes which have adjustable bottle holder mechanical design technology applied in refrigerator doors are preferred.

Potential European partners who have other advanced and innovative household refrigerator technology are also welcome for a talk.
