iF Design Award for Wacker Neuson Internal Vibrators

Wacker Neuson is known for its unique production design. Now the internal vibrators of the IEC series from Wacker Neuson have been awarded the renowned iF Design Award. The internal vibrators with integrated converters combine efficiency output, sturdiness and user friendliness with a particularly good price-performance ratio.

In 1937, the internal vibrator was invented by Wacker Neuson for professional concrete consolidation. Today, the different models of the company are the best-selling internal vibrators worldwide. The distinction with the iF Design Award 2017 is also proof that they convince with their design as well. "The function is clearly the focus. But it is supported by the design," explains Gerald Krenn, product designer of the Wacker Neuson Group. "With the design, we highlight the individual character of the machines and units, such as their performance or user friendliness." For 60 years, the iF Design Award has been an internationally recognized trademark when it comes to excellent design.

The internal vibrators of the IEC series consist of three main elements: The frequency converter is connected as an element between the power cable and protection hose and, due to its line orientation in the direction of flow and the swelling body, it refers to the function of the increase of the current frequency. The tapering of the shape to the dimension of the cable cross-section prevents the unit, for example, from jamming in the reinforcement and getting stuck. The ergonomic and easy-to-grab edge profile of the housing provides for operating comfort. The raised ribs provide stiffness, protect the power switch and facilitate transport.

With the model series IEC, Wacker Neuson offers high frequency, electric internal vibrators in the most common size classes. With the three vibrator head diameters of 38, 45 and 58 millimeters as well as a protective hose length of up to 10 meters, all standard tasks in construction can be completed easily and quickly.

Like all internal vibrators from Wacker Neuson, the IEC series is also produced at the Reichertshofen location near Ingolstadt. Wacker Neuson also designs, develops and produces the motors themselves and places great value on the highest quality standards. The vibrator head is wear resistant and the protection hose and power cable are characterized by a high bending resistance. In the event of damage, the vibrator head can be entirely replaced with little effort. Wacker Neuson thus offers an extremely sturdy and reliable unit for a long-term and safe application on the construction site.

Wacker Neuson can competently help you, whether with the professional creation of precast concrete parts, in plant and formwork construction or on large construction sites. A separate consultation unit, the concrete specialists who offer their services rendered under the name "concrete solutions", will comprehensively advise you in all stages of the project. Customers thus receive a custom solution that economically convinces and also benefit from the know-how and long-term experience of the team of experts as well as from an extensive offer of units and special equipment for their individual areas of application.
