The expert panel of judges of Red Dot Award 2018 was impressed with the design and functionality of Gestica control system from Arburg.
The expert panel of judges of Red Dot Award 2018 was impressed with the design and functionality of Gestica control system from Arburg.

The design world gathered in Essen, Germany, for the presentation of the internationally renowned "Red Dot Award" for design earlier this month. This year, more than 6,300 products from 59 countries were submitted. These included the Gestica control system from Arburg, whose look and feel won over the 39-strong Red Dot panel of experts.

The Gestica control system from the company received the "Red Dot Award 2018" in the "Industrial equipment, machinery and automation" category. Following on from the freeformer in 2014, this is the second Arburg’s product to win this prestigious design award.

The selection criteria include the degree of innovation, as well as functionality, ergonomics and self-explanatory quality. The judges tested the functionality of the control system using a simulator to obtain an impression of its benefits.

One highlight is the "Easyslider" control element, which can be used to control movements simply and precisely during set-up of the injection moulding machine and display these via colour-variable LED technology. Acceleration and deceleration can be controlled by swiping along a bar at the edge of the screen.

Furthermore,the control system is equipped with a 16:9 high-resolution full HD screen featuring industry-standard multi-touch technology. As ergonomics play an important role in development together with functionality, the pivoting, height-adjustable operating panel is anatomically inclined.

Arburg worked closely with designer Jürgen R. Schmid, owner of the Design Tech design studio in Ammerbuch, for the product design. As well as the award-winning design of the Gestica control system, this successful cooperation has already resulted in the largest Arburg injection moulding machine Allrounder 1120 H, which obtained an iF award in March 2018, and the freeformer additive manufacturing system, which won a Red Dot Award in 2014.
