Nord-Lock Group has received one of the world’s most prestigious design awards, the Red Dot Award, for the Superbolt Tool, which won ‘Best Product Design 2020’ in the Tools category.
Co-inventor Andy McPhee, R&D at Nord-Lock Group, commented: “I am extremely proud that the Superbolt Tool was judged not only good enough to be entered into the Red Dot competition, but it actually won.”
The Superbolt Tool is a compact drive mechanism that makes it possible to tighten multiple jackbolts simultaneously to the correct load. It is designed to allow a small torque input to be magnified into a large and uniformed torque output.
The Red Dot Award is a design competition that rewards the best products of the year. The distinction ‘Red Dot’ has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design. This year, more than 6,500 products were submitted and individually tested by an international jury of experts.
“We are of course very proud and honoured that our design has been recognised this way. It’s yet more proof of our dedication to develop technologies that are designed for the highest performance”, says Fredrik Meuller, CEO at Nord-Lock Group.
