Balluff mounting system receives design award
One of the most prestigious design awards goes to the new Balluff BMS mounting system. It was decorated with the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014. Its high design quality and shapely appeal convinced the international jury, which included 40 experts. Creative individuals and manufacturers from around the world submitted a total of 4,815 designs to the prestigious product contest.
The internationally renowned quality seal will be awarded on July 7, 2014, during the traditional Red Dot Gala in the Aalto Theater in Essen. The Balluff BMS mounting system will then be presented in a four-week special exhibit in the Red Dot Design Museum at the Zeche Zollverein in Essen.
With the universal BMS mounting system from Balluff, sensors and actuators can be easily mounted during machine construction. A few steps are all it takes to quickly and flexibly implement even complicated positioning tasks with the heavy-duty standard elements available in the modular system. The new basic holders, joints and sensor holders made of die-cast zinc offer not only secure retention but also convince with their special design and extraordinary ergonomics. The developers succeeded in creating a highly functional solution with just a few individual parts that allows the user to implement complicated mounting tasks in a very short time. This saves money and creates competitive advantages.
