Hilti receives five Red Dot Awards
Schaan (FL), July 4, 2017 – Hilti once again ranks among the winners of this year’s Red Dot Awards. The company received several product innovation prizes yesterday evening at the awards ceremony held in Essen, Germany.
Hilti not only brings productivity to the construction site, now it also brings the rhythm. The new RC 4/36-DAB radio charger generates a tremendous level of sound and also plays smartphone music playlists, music from other mobile players or from streaming services via integrated Bluetooth interface. The radio is also a charger for all Hilti batteries. In addition to being powered by mains electricity, it also operates on battery power. The international Red Dot Award jury was taken by the charger’s robust design and versatility and, as a result, gave the RC 4/36-DAB radio charger a Red Dot Design Award.
The Hilti TE-YX hammer drill bit was also cited for design excellence. It has a higher resistance to wear, thanks to the solid carbide head with four cutting edges and a four-flute helix. The latest generation of the TE 60-ATC/AVR combihammer, which has improved drilling and chiseling performance as well as the trusted user safety features AVR (Active Vibration Reduction) and ATC (Active Torque Control) was also acknowledged with an award. Additional Red Dot Awards went to the TE 3-M rotary hammer, which includes functions for hammer drilling, drilling without hammering action and chiseling, making it suitable for numerous applications, and the SID 8-A22 cordless impact driver which includes a hammering mechanism and electronics designed for heavy-duty screwdriving and drilling in wood.
