iF Design Award for the HC CompactLine series

Award for small compactors

Roller manufacturer Hamm has been awarded the prestigious iF Design Award for its design of the HC CompactLine series. With 10,800 submissions from 72 countries, the iF Design Award is one of the world’s most highly regarded design competitions. The 5 to 7 t models of the HC CompactLine series – the HC 50i and HC 70i – were chosen by international design experts following a rigorous two-stage selection process.

The award has been bestowed annually since 1954 and recognises outstanding design achievements across various disciplines. The HC CompactLine series was recognised for its innovative design in the Product Design category. The focus was not only on design and construction details, but also on comfort and user-friendliness. Being yet again awarded with a renowned design prize further underscores the importance of the development process employed by compaction specialist Hamm. The iF Design Award is the second prestigious award for Hamm machines in 2024, having already received the accolade of German Design Award Special Mention.

HC CompactLine established on the market since 2022

The small compactors, which were launched in 2022 as a successor to the H CompactLine series, have established themselves in markets with the EPA Tier 4f/EU Stage V exhaust emission standards. In this segment, Hamm offers models with smooth or padfoot drums as well as two-piece padfoot shells. The HC 70i is also available with a VIO drum. It can compact with either vibration or oscillation, which allows it to cover an enormous range of applications. Its sustainable machine concept and the outstanding design make them the ideal machines for rental.
