We are delighted to be honoured for the design of our UTS2 system. With the Red Dot Design Award 2016, the system receives one of the most prestigious design awards in the product design segment. In cooperation with the design office Manuel Aydt and crosscreative an innovative and unique design was created. The primary focus in the structural interpretation of the UTS2 was of course the technical function. Based on this and according to the principle “form follows function”, the housing for imparting stability and precision was clearly structured. By soft surface transitions the UTS2 still looks dynamic and sets the focus on the diamond tool tip, where the cutting process takes place. The black of the system is on the one hand in direct contrast to the machine-typical colours, but reflects on the other hand, the CI of the company son-x. The special ultrasonic technology is visually underlined by a status LED in the front area and an activity indicator in the “X” of the power switch. This indicates that in addition to the mechanical process an additional ultrasonic process is taking place.
