Arlington Heights, IL - The KNIPEX installation pliers and the KNIPEX X-Cut diagonal cutters have received the 2013 iF product design award. This tool is the ideal complement to an electrician’s diagonal cutters, says the company. The pliers are fully loaded with functions mimicking the four essential electrical installation tools including long nose pliers, wire strippers, crimping pliers and cable shears. This quadruple functionality in the pliers makes them ideal for electricians and others who do electrical work. The second KNIPEX tool to win the 2013 iF product design award was the X-Cut pliers. The box joint diagonal cutters have the capacity of an all-rounder. They are compact and lightweight, but still extremely precise and powerful due to the double-supported joint axis that allows for heavy-duty cutting. With a broad cutting repertoire, they offer diverse usability in industry and trade professions. The iF award is presented by an independent jury of internationally respected designers, entrepreneurs and professors according to defined criteria. The criteria considered by the jury included design quality, degree of innovation, environmental impact, functionality, ergonomics, visualization of intended use, safety, brand value and branding, as well as the universal aspects of design.
