Design Award for New Knife Ring Flaker

The Maier MRZ knife ring flaker is the first collaborative design project of Dieffenbacher’s Wood Business Unit and the Tübingen design firm defortec. Previously, defortec and Dieffenbacher’s Composites Business Unit collaborated on the design of Fibercon, Fiberforge and Fiberpress products.

The clear, lightweight, and dynamic design of the knife ring flaker reflects its functionality and supports it. The design underscores the advanced technology of the machine, facilitates accessibility for maintenance work, and ensures increased work safety.

The design of the new knife ring flaker also won over the international jury of the Design Center Baden-Württemberg. In May, the jury presented the design with the Focus Open Silver Award 2018.
