January 31, 2001 - The new product design from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is impressive. A total of five Heidelberg products won the iF Product Design Award 2001 in mid January. The iF seal for outstanding design quality is one of the most important awards for national and international companies and designers. The Speedmaster CD 74 press received a special prize as one of the ten best entries out of a total of 1,320. The Speedmaster CD 74 belongs to a new generation of presses with high standards of automation and print quality. Other Heidelberg products nominated included the Nexscan (scanner), Primesetter (filmsetter), Ecocool (dryer) and Mainstream (newspaper press).
The Industry Forum Design Hanover (iF) runs an international competition each year. The best products with the highest level of design quality are chosen according to design criteria by an independent international panel of judges in two rounds of selection.
