Process technologies win Australian International Design Awards

A hydraulic drive system and screening and recycling attachment for the materials handling and process sectors have been recognised for their design merit in the prestigious 2009 Australian International Design Awards.

A high capacity, compact hydraulic drive system called the I-Drive won a coveted 2009 Australian International Design Award. Designed and manufactured in Australia for the drilling, construction and earthmoving industries, the I-Drive’s primary use is to efficiently convert high capacities of hydraulic flow and pressure into rotational torque without the need for a case drain, complex hosing or filtration. The I-Drive was designed and manufactured in Australia by Digga Australia Pty Ltd.

“A powerful, clever, robust product with a high quality finish and attention to detail that exceeds expectations. Stresses are reduced by spreading load on the sun-gear, improving reliability and redundancy,” the judging panel said of the I-Drive.

A revolutionary screening and recycling attachment called the S30 Flip Screen received an Australian International Design Mark. Used to separate material in industries such as construction, demolition, civil works, steel recycling, waste transfer and quarries, the S30 Flip Screen is a portable skidsteer attachment which uses a continuous 360° rotating action to sieve smaller particles through a mesh screen whilst larger particles are trapped inside by the spiralling action. The S30 Flip Screen was designed in Australia by Flip Screen Australia Pty Ltd.

Covering a range of categories including consumer, business and technology, medical and scientific, automotive and transport, housing and building, heavy machinery, sport and leisure, architectural and interior products and student design, the Australian International Design Awards rewards benchmarks of quality and excellence in manufactured goods through an application and assessment process.
