The German Design Award Winner 2017 is …. AccuPocket
AccuPocket is the first MMA welding system that provides unrivalled freedom of movement during manual metal arc and TIG welding thanks to its low overall weight and high-performance lithium-ion battery. The German Design Award has now recognised AccuPocket's supreme design qualities too.
With the AccuPocket, Fronius is relying on the concentrated power of lithium-ion technology. On top of this revolutionary new approach, the external shape of this MMA power source has also been completely redesigned. The dynamic lines and its intelligent combination of metal and plastic unite the benefits of portability, robustness and technology. For these reasons, AccuPocket was selected from more than 4,000 entries in the Workshop & Tools category to be honoured with the German Design Award for 2017.
