The STP Futura presetter line was awarded the 2014 Red Dot International Award for Design Quality.
Speroni and Big Kaiser announce that the Speroni STP Futura line of tool presetters has won the 2014 Red Dot International Award for Design Quality. Nearly 5,000 entries from 53 countries were evaluated and judged by international design experts. Only the entries meeting this panel’s rigorous standards were awarded.
The Futura line is designed for ergonomics, ease of use and precision, with a modular design and vast number of available configurations to meet a range of measuring needs. It is also guaranteed to be fully upgrade-ready to grow with the customer’s future needs.
“As a manufacturer, it is our constant aim to push the boundaries of tool presetting and measurement,” says Andrea Speroni, CEO/COO, Speroni S.p.A. “Ergonomics is a discipline that, unfortunately, is sometimes used more as a marketing slogan. But the challenges we faced in this department encompassed aspects such as safety, ease of use and design. The new STP Futura…allows each operator to fully customize his or her working position.”
All models can achieve repeatable precision of 1 micron (0.000039") or better. The device is constructed with Pearlitic class 40 cast iron, providing added precision and consistency to measurements and increased system stability and durability.
