Design award in the automobile/vehicles category
The iF Design Award is one of the most important design prizes in the world. In the 2021 competition, the international, independent jury of experts evaluated almost 10,000 submissions from 52 countries. The 18–25 t compactors in the new HC series from HAMM were awarded the prize in the Automotive/Vehicles category.
A great product design promotes quality, safety and comfort
Well-designed construction machinery stands out, in particular, thanks to the fact that the operator can effortlessly understand all of the functions and operate the machine intuitively. This prevents operator errors. At the same time, the machine safety, efficiency and comfort all benefit from the design. "We are harmonising ergonomics, functionality and aesthetics, and providing our rollers with something that sets them apart – "HAMM DNA". For us, in addition to pure performance, ergonomics and simple operation are right at the top of the agenda," says Dr Axel Römer, Head of Research and Development at HAMM.
Modern appearance and many equipment variants
Straightforward, clearly structured and exceptionally dynamic, the HC series reinterprets the tried and tested style elements of the HAMM brand. The new shape of the engine hood stands out in particular here. With the HC series, HAMM is pursuing a platform strategy: The customers benefit from an extensive range of options and can adapt each roller to their individual requirements and areas of application. This also includes quite distinct options for the operator platform, from the open platform, through to the heated and air-conditioned cab. This means that the compactors can be used in all climate zones.
