Two Good Design Awards for the Compaction Specialist
The HC CompactLine series and the HC series from Hamm were recently awarded the Good Design Award by the Chicago Athenaeum. These bring the total of internationally recognized design and innovation awards for successful products and developments received by Hamm since 1996 to 40.
The latest compactor series in the Hamm portfolio received awards in the “Industrial” category. The Good Design Award has been presented for 75 years and is one of the world's most important awards for ground-breaking design. It honors high-quality products which stand out thanks to their impressive form, function and aesthetics. In awarding this prize, the jury evaluates the product in terms of level of innovative of the design, new technologies, form, materials, construction, concept, function, utility, and energy efficiency, as well as sensitivity to the environment.
The new compactors from Hamm are equipped for the digitalization of the construction industry.
“The HC series compactors are ‘digital ready’ and so meet future construction site quality and communication requirements. Using the Smart Doc app from Hamm, even less-experienced drivers can immediately determine which areas have been sufficiently compacted, and which areas still require compaction. Furthermore, the compactors can communicate, even with digital applications from 3rd parties, via a standardized interface,” noted the jury.
The new compactor series also offer an impressive sustainable machine concept. They can be operated with diesel or HVO fuels. Furthermore, in both series, operation in ECO mode saves fuel. The machine design and the components in the power train were chosen by Hamm so that most tasks can be carried out in ECO mode – without curtailing the compaction power. In addition, an automatic engine stop can reduce diesel consumption. This automatically switches off the engine under certain conditions, for example during prolonged downtimes. At the same time, the automatic mechanism takes into account the requirements of exhaust gas cleaning with the diesel particulate filter (DPF).
