The design of the VTD Torque Limiting Knob, which, due to its ergonomic balance, rests well in the hand, places particular focus on limiting tightening torque. This is done by a spring system which releases the grip after the desired torque is reached, signalled by a clearly audible click sound. By turning the knob anticlockwise, the patented mechanism unlocks automatically. The matte black, glass fibre reinforced thermoplastic knob is available with different torque values.

Statement by the Jury

The design of this clamping knob convinces with its sophisticated func­tion­ality and ergonomics enabling ­fatigue-free work.
