Atlas Copco has announced that it has been awarded a Red Dot Design Award for 2021 for its Tensor ICB tool. The Tensor ICB tool, which is part of the IxB tool family, increases efficiency, reduces the need for hardware and equipment, as well as reduces energy consumption.
Henrik Elmin, President of Atlas Copco’s Industrial Technique business area, said: “We are proud to be recognised with this prize for outstanding design. 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, 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.
