Elesa+Ganter: design wins again


CATEGORY: Awards BRAND: Elesa+Ganter

The company has announced that VB.839 three-arm knobs, previously awarded IF Design Award 2019 and VTD torque-control knobs have both been awarded the Red Dot Design Award in the Product Design category.

The jury recognized the unique design of the VB.839 three-arm knob: an ideal overlap of two triangles rotated by an angle of 8 °. The particular ergonomic shape allows a more direct application of the tightening torque by the operator, resulting in maximum comfort and safety in clamping operations. A technopolymer body with an overmoulded polyamide based technopolymer, chemically bonded, offers a semi-glossy finish. The innovative double injection moulding process allows to obtain knobs with high resistance to stresses, impacts and with a perfectly smooth surface.

The three-light lobe design of the VTD torque limiting knob fits perfectly to the operator's hand thanks to its ergonomics. A slight tapering increases the grip, maximizing the effort of the hand in rotating the knob. In addition to its special design, the knob also features an innovative functionality: an internal system limits the applied tightening torque during clamping preserving the application surface.
