iF packaging award 2011 goes to Robatech

Hand applicator ErgoStar(TM) wins international award

(PresseBox) (Muri, ) Robatech AG, a leading enterprise in the area of adhesive application technology domiciled in Muri/Switzerland, has received the iF packaging award 2011 from the IF International Forum Design for its new hand applicator ErgoStar(TM) .

Since 2008 manufacturers, developers and designers of all types of packaging articles, means of packaging, packaging graphics, packaging materials and packaging machines can apply each year in six different categories for the "iF packaging award" which is given by the iF International Forum Design. Apart from the assessment criterion design quality, aspects such as processing, material selection, degree of innovation, compatibility with the environment, functionality, ergonomics and safety play an important role for the jury of five. 114 companies from 24 countries participated in the current tendering process and submitted 203 applications, of which 59 were successful and received the much coveted award. Among the prize winners is also Robatech AG whose new hand applicator ErgoStar(TM) combines ergonomic design with highest flexibility in the application. The Ergo Star(TM) convinced the international panel of experts called in by iF to grant it the iF packaging award 2011 in category 05 for packaging machines.

Versatile, ergonomic and flexible

The hand applicator Ergo Star(TM) developed by Robatech scores with several advantages. It is suitable to apply all types of hotmelts such as EVA, PUR and PE, adhesive hotmelts or sealing compounds with highest precision in the form of beads, spirals or by spraying. The nozzles can be exchanged and adapted to the requirements of the job on hand. The new design enables the operator to work without tiring and takes health considerations into account. A particular plus is also the ergonomic "cool-touch" handle of a special plastic material. Even if used for longer periods the handle is pleasantly cool to touch and prevents burns.

Presentation at the interpack 2011

All prize winners of the iF packaging award 2011 will be presented at a special show within the framework of the interpack PROCESSES AND PACKAGING 2011 from 12 to 18 May 2011 in cooperation with the Düsseldorf exhibition.
