Atlas Copco´s LT 6005 rammer series won the international iF Product Design Award 2015. The iF Design Award has been recognized world over as a label of design excellence, identifying outstanding achievements in design.
´Thorough research and a tight cooperation between R&D and our Industrial Design Team has been success factors in the development of the new LT rammers,´ said Fredrik Hägglund, Manager Technical Development Light Compaction Equipment. ´With a strong user focus, we managed to increase the balance of the machine, making it extremely easy to handle.´
The new Atlas Copco LT rammers are designed for compaction work in confined areas. The product is a result of research and customer input. One of the major improvements is the slimmer design that facilitates handling. For example, the visibility is considerably enhanced. In order to get full visibility of the foot, the operator needs to lean 50 per cent less to the side. The user grip area is increased by 300 per cent for better control.
