Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum has won the prestigious annual Red Dot Product Design Award for the design of the PHOENIX L500i leak detector. The jury of the Red Dot Award recognised Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum’s efforts for an intelligent and innovative design. The PHOENIX L500i will be presented at the Analytica in Munich, together with the TURBOVACi turbo molecular pump series recently launched at the Pittcon Chicago.
The Red Dot Design Award recognises the best in design and business and is an international indicator for outstanding design quality on an international level. “Congratulations to the team of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum and Christian Bunse, the designer, who developed the PHOENIX L500i award winning design with us”, lauded Dr Martin Fuellenbach, CEO of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum.
The concept for the design of the PHOENIX L500i leak detector came from the desire to combine the sophistication of a very high-tech piece of equipment within an aesthetically pleasing and functional appearance. Vacuum leak detection is an integral solution and fully complementary to achieve and maintain the vacuum in technically complex systems by finding potential leaks and thus ensuring vacuum performance. This new leak detector was aimed to distinguish itself from the already existing competitive products.
