 International iF Product Design Award 2012 for the Kempact RA

 

 

 

 

 

The news just in is that the Kempact RA by Kemppi has won the esteemed International iF Product Design award 2012 at the annual competition organised in Germany. The competition is hosted by iF International Forum Design which has been globally recognised as a ‘hallmark of design excellence’ for almost 60 years. Each year a team of international design experts rigorously test the products entered.

'The Kempact RA product range creates a 'completely new standard' for compact MIG/MAG machines' Kemppi

The Kempact RA product range was designed to meet the demands of modern day welders, making welding ‘efficient, accurate, and productive’. With a user survey implemented as part of the design process and involvement from participants in various countries and operating environments, the end result was a welding machine breaking boundaries in terms of usability, adaptability and design standards.

‘Completely new and innovative’ Kemppi

Kemppi made some radical changes to the architecture and functionality: the new machine is high and openable at the front, as opposed to the old design which was low and opened at the side. Other new features include an integrated gas cylinder transporter, eliminating the issue of the user having to manually lift it on and off. Robust handles and big wheels mean transportation of the machine and the cylinder is ergonomically friendly, as does the design and positioning of the new control panel.

And this isn't the first award Kemppi have won based on design and usability. In 2006 the MinarcMig Adaptive won the Red Dot Design Award and in 2009 the FitWeld Welding Machine and SuperSnake GT02S Subfeeder achieved Red Dot honorary mentions.
