Nacka, Sweden, April 28, 2021: Atlas Copco has been awarded a prestigious Red Dot Design Award for 2021. The awarded Tensor ICB tool, part of the Tensor IxB tool family, increases efficiency, reduces the need for hardware and equipment, as well as reduces energy consumption.
“We are proud to be recognized with this prize for outstanding design,” said Henrik Elmin, President of Atlas Copco’s Industrial Technique business area. “The Tensor IxB tools are designed to be ergonomic and provide customer benefits, but also to increase performance, efficiency and quality, and reduce the risk of human errors.”
The Tensor IxB is the first generation of Atlas Copco tools with integrated controllers – all innovatively designed to enable future requirements of customers. A Tensor ICB tool head and trigger button has a 360 degree rotation angle. Thus, parts in cramped areas can be effortlessly reached. It improves the ergonomics for factory operators and the results for critical tightening.
The products are designed and manufactured by divisions within the Industrial Technique business area.
