Red Dot awards for four Hilti innovations
Schaan (FL), July 5, 2016 – Hilti received several awards for new product innovations at last night’s Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016 ceremony, held in Essen, Germany.
The 41 international experts that make up the Red Dot jury handed out a design award to Hilti’s BX 3-ME battery actuated fastening tool. The tool is the first one in its category that generates enough power to set fasteners and nails into hard surfaces such as concrete or steel. The user benefits from a high degree of comfort, low noise, a slight recoil and dust-free work.
A further award went to the PD-C laser range meter, which allows the results of measurements to be saved either as a digital photo or turned into a report. Various calculations can also be carried out and, along with comprehensive project data, can be exported to a computer, tablet or smartphone. The jury gave the third award to the SF 8M-A22 and SF 10W-A22 cordless drill drivers, which are equipped with high-performance 4-speed full metal gearing, providing optimum torque for drilling and screw driving into metal and wood.
Some 5200 products from 57 countries were submitted for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016 competition. The jury evaluated the products in terms of innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological sustainability, among other criteria.
