The Red Dot double
For the second year in a row, a Sandvik Mining product has earned top honours at the prestigious Red Dot Awards.
The international 40-member jury gave the Sandvik DD422i development drill rig the 2015 Red Dot Award: Product Design; this on the heels of the Sandvik Pantera DI6400 down-the-hole percussive drill’s win in 2014.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design is an internationally recognized quality label for outstanding design achievement and one of the world’s most sought-after seals of design quality. With almost 5,000 innovative entries from 2,000 participants representing 56 countries in 2015 alone, the Red Dot Award: Product Design is both the most recognized and most global product competition around.
