VEGA Grieshaber KG of Schiltach in Germany’s Black Forest has received the Red Dot Design Award 2021 for three new compact sensors of the VEGAPULS, VEGABAR and VEGAPOINT series.

The best solution is the simplest one possible, explains managing director Rainer Waltersbacher. “VEGA is simple. We are known for this core idea, and we’ve brought it to perfection in product design.”

VEGA’s approach is based on many years of experience and lots of thorough research, which ultimately ensures that a new product will be able to perform all functions required of it. The central aim, says Waltersbacher, is “to make the best solution as simple as possible for the user.”

Explaining their reasoning for the award, the jury emphasised the unique combination of precision and simplicity in the sensors. They were especially impressed by the “sophisticated design” and “well thought-out handling”, because only these features can ensure “absolute process reliability”.

Freshly awarded, the sensors will be on display in the “Design on Stage” exhibition at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen.

According to VEGA, the art of designing a good level or pressure measuring instrument lies in recognizing the factors that advance their application. That’s why the company is always questioning every component anew: from the materials to the user interface, it says.

VEGA Instruments Canada is located in Toronto.
