SMART EVO won over the 38-member jury of the Red Dot Award and proved its design excellence in this respected global competition. Out of 4,928 participants, SMART EVO stood out and was awarded the Red Dot: Best of the Best for top quality and innovative product design.
Best of the Best is the highest individual achievement in the Red Dot Award. Only outstanding products receive this award - and in 2015, only 1.6 % of all entries in the competition won this attractive award. This means that YXLON Copenhagen is one of the forerunners in international design within the industry.
The jury handed the award to YXLON Copenhagen for the Best of the Best in product design, with the following reasons:
»In industry, X-rays are used, for example, to identify changes in the thickness of materials or errors in individual assembly details. With this inspection method companies can guarantee the quality of their products. SMART EVO is a portable X-ray system for non-destructive testing, which was designed specifically to meet the different conditions in companies. The result is a technologically sophisticated system that impresses with a conclusive design concept. The heart of the system is the innovative CONTROL EVO unit, which in combination with a redesigned X-ray tube head allows for an intelligent and efficient workflow. This ergonomically designed system couples high performance with ease of operation. All components are perfectly coordinated, and since the device is light and compact, it is also easy to transport. To ensure that the SMART EVO system is durable and fit for long-term use, it is shock-resistant and ruggedly built. The use of high-quality materials also contributes to guaranteeing that it can be used anywhere, even in the harshest and most remote environments. Recomposing the individual elements of such a testing device, SMART EVO is a sophisticatedly designed X-ray system that facilitates the work of all people involved and increases their flexibility.«
»The design of SMART EVO impressively combines the innovative technology of the CONTROL EVO unit with a portable system for non-destructive testing. As such, this system sets new standards for the future. It fascinates with a highly user-friendly operation, which allows it to be perfectly adjusted to various workflows even under the most extreme conditions. It is compact and ergonomically well thought-through.«
The founder of Red Dot Award:
Professor Dr Peter Zec, Founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award: “For 60 years, the most-respected design experts have been convening every year in Essen, Germany, to seek out the best designs. This year we had a record number of almost 5,000 entries - a huge amount of work for our jury members, who assessed each individual product, and a special value to the distinction due to the high standard. The laureates of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015 have demonstrated exceptionally high achievements and have thus been deservedly successful in the world’s largest design competition.”
