ITW Gema: Jeff Hale (317) 298-5161
Indianapolis, Ind., April, 2006 IIn March 2006, ITW Gema AG (St. Gallen, Switzerland) was recognized with the iF (International Forum) Design Award for the ergonomic and innovative design of the OPTIFLEX manual Powder Coating Series, featuring the OPTISELECT FirstPass Power Gun. According to iF's website (www.ifdesign.de): "Companies and design studios deploy the iF seal in their communication campaigns as a visible symbol of product and service quality. And for buyers of design-oriented products, the iF seal serves as a decision-making tool in the marketplace. An iF award is a symbol of a company's commitment to innovation and it's willingness to face the competition.
Products bearing the iF Design Award label have distinguished themselves in a world of numerous and complex products. The iF quality seal is now recognized worldwide and helps end users to select products that meet the highest standards for quality and design. Products recognized in 2006 had to meet the criteria of "Less marketing, more design." Winning entries demonstrated the concepts of simplicity, ease of operation and user friendliness.
ITW Gema's OPTISELECT Manual Powder Gun, one of the lightest and most ergonomically balanced hand guns on the market, emulates these concepts very well. That's why we invite customers to Power Up Their Productivity with OPTISELECT'S 100,000 volts of FirstPass Power. Controlling the system is the OPTISTAR Advanced Control Unit. OPTISTAR includes 3 preset programs for flat parts, complicated parts, or recoat parts, as well as the ability to store 20 custom programs. OPTISTAR'S digital Valve Control (DVC) keeps the system's air balanced and regulated at all times, while the OPTIFLOW High Performance Powder Pump ensures uniform powder delivery for all applications.
ITW Gema is known throughout the industry for producing the highest performing powder guns on the market. Now, the iF Design Award label proudly displayed on our OPTIFLEX units, we can say that the international experts agree.
