Red Dot Award for product design
Published:  11 May, 2021

ESAB has announced that its Robust Feed wire feeder has received the highly coveted Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021.

The company says the Robust Feed was designed for portability, durability and productivity and is the only portable feeder with an IP44 protection class rating, which means it is protected against water splashes from all directions. A completely-sealed wire feed compartment protects the wire from dust, an optional heater drives off moisture to preserve wire integrity and its double-wall design has special zones to provide impact and abrasion resistance. The controls, power and gas cable connections are protected inside the housing, and a reliable strain relief removes cable stress. This is the second Red Dot award ESAB has won for product design.
