Bundespreis 2002 for the Mammut.
The strongest wins only if it is designed as intelligently as the FEIN Mammut. This innovative offset screwdriver with extremely high torque is a prime example for a successful FEIN problem solver. The user can work where it wasn't possible before: screw in wood screws up to 16mm in difficult to reach places. This innovative application was worth a prize for the jury of the handicrafts fair 2002. A new proof of innovation generated by FEIN, the inventor of the first power tool.
iF Design Award Winner 2002.
The ASW 12-18 cordless torque wrench was designed for special assembly situations, primarily for automobile assembly lines. The tool was developed with ergonomic features in mind; especially a new grip concept was in the forefront of the design. Additionally the screw gun's good balance is outstanding due to its optimised weight distribution.
The ASW 12-18 also won the reddot award for its exceptional design. The ASW puts FEIN among the best of the best in international product design.
Tool of the year 2001: the FEIN WSB 20-180/230.
The readers of the magazine "Bauen und Renovieren" have come to a decision. The FEIN WSB 20-180/230 is the top No.1 device in the angle grinder category. FEIN has thus outpaced Bosch and Metabo. This was the twelfth time "Bauen und Renovieren" has asked its readers to select the top tools of the year. For the first time voting via Internet was possible. The readers were called to make their choices for "Tool of the Year" in seven tool groups. In the "angle grinder" category they elected the FEIN WSB 20-180/230 angle grinder, leaving the machines of other manufacturers far behind. Or as the editors from "Bauen und Renovieren" aptly summarised the poll: "Looks as well as visible and comprehensible innovative features add up the plus points." Thus FEIN was awarded with this coveted prize now for the fourth time.
iF Award 2001 for KBM 32 Q. reddot 2001 for KBM 32 Q.
The international jury of the iF Industry Forum Design Hanover asked 700 participants from 30 countries to make their judgement. 1320 products were evaluated according to criteria such as design quality, ergonomics, and degree of innovation. The KBM 32 Q was certified by the jury for having asserted itself in a qualified field of competitors and awarded it with the iF "Product Design Award 2001" in November 2000.
The members of the jury from the North Rhine-Westphalia Design Centre saw it likewise. They recognised the high quality that presents innovation in form and function in exemplary manner and awarded it the "reddot award: product design". The coveted seal of quality – formerly "Roter Punkt" – is awarded since 1955 and went to FEIN in 2001 – not the first time for a FEIN product. FEIN is proud of this repeated acknowledgement by independent experts and understands it as an incentive for top efficiency when developing innovative power tools in the future.
