Stockholm, Sweden, April 7, 2015: Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, won three prestigious Red Dot design awards for high-precision screwdriver systems. The products improve ergonomics and enhance productivity for manufacturing customers especially in the electronics industry.
Atlas Copco won two awards for the innovative QMC 21 and QMC 41 screwdriver systems that are used for assembling micro screws in applications such as small electronic devices. The new design and choice of materials cut weight by half compared to their predecessors, improving assembly speed and reducing maintenance needs.
Atlas Copco was also awarded for its MT Focus 6000 Controller system, which facilitates tightening of micro screws during electronics assembly and sets new standards for size and usability.
“We are very pleased with these awards as they recognize our hard work to design our products in ways that improve customers’ productivity and give the operators the ultimate in comfort and safety,” said Mats Rahmström, President of Atlas Copco’s Industrial Technique business area.
Atlas Copco has been awarded the Red Dot prize before, most recently in 2013 for the electric nutrunner Tensor ETT-STR, a fastening solution that takes productivity, ergonomics and quality to an entirely new level.
