Hoffmann Group Wins the iF DESIGN AWARD



The Hoffmann Group has received the iF DESIGN AWARD for three GARANT premium brand products this year. The awards were for the GARANT ToolCar roller cabinet, the GARANT Xpent 5-axis vise and the hydraulic GARANT measuring stand in the product design discipline. "The trio was able to impress the 63-member jury and to prevail against 6,400 submissions from 54 countries. The iF DESIGN AWARD is awarded once a year by the world's oldest independent design institution, iF International Forum Design GmbH in Hanover," said a company spokesperson.

The new GARANT GridLine ToolCar is a rolling organizational pro featuring a progressive design and clear lines. The centrally lockable side compartment has a GARANT perforated panel, to which GARANT Easyfix holders and hooks for the toolholder can be attached. The GARANT ToolCar is also optionally available with a power supply in the side compartment and with lighting. Robust yet quiet rolling wheels as well as an ergonomically shaped push handle make it easier to move around in the workshop - even under extreme operating conditions.

The GARANT Xpent vise is optimized for 5-face machining and offers modularity and flexibility. It has clamping modules that can be rotated through 180°, a travel of over 100 mm without conversion and a modern quick-change spindle system. These features make it easy to adapt the clamp to any machining strategy in just a few simple steps.

The hydraulic GARANT measuring stand is designed for accurate holding and positioning of dial gauges and lever gauges. Its hydraulic central clamping system can unfold extreme holding forces and is wear-free. The large and rubberized clamping handle ensures that all joints can be fixed evenly. The high-performance ferrite magnet is switched on and off via the rotary switch located in the magnetic switch. With its V-shaped underside the measuring stand is also suitable for mounting on shafts and cylindrical bodies. The specially developed plastic enclosure of the magnetic base allows a secure grip and protects the surface of sensitive workpieces.
