Speroni Wins Red Dot Award for Design Quality
Their new STP FUTURA line of high-precision modular tool presetting systems won the award by introducing new levels of ergonomics, ease of use and precision in the tool presetting and measuring world.
Speroni S.p.A (Spessa Pavia, Italy) and BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. (Hoffman Estates, IL) are proud to announce that the Speroni STP FUTURA line of tool presetters has won the prestigious 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 new FUTURA line introduces new levels of ergonomics, ease of use and precision in the tool presetting and measuring world. The modular design and vast number of available configurations offer the right solution for every measuring need. The FUTURA is also guaranteed to be fully upgrade-ready to grow with your company’s future needs.
“As a manufacturer, it is our constant aim to push the boundaries of tool presetting and measurement,” says Andrea Speroni, the chief executive officer/chief operating officer of Speroni. “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 sets a new bar, becoming the benchmark in the ergonomics department. While maintaining the unsurpassed, open-spindle design and introducing a completely new, redesigned cockpit solution, FUTURA allows each operator to fully customize his or her working position.”
To metalworkers in North America, the FUTURA is a high-precision modular tool presetting system designed to increase profits and available machining time. All Speroni FUTURA models can achieve repeatable precision of 1 micron (0.000039 in) or better. The device is constructed with Pearlitic class 40 cast iron; this provides added precision and consistency to measurements and increases system stability and durability. The first-class quality and construction of Speroni tool presetters are complimented by a world-class service and support team.
