New measuring equipment from Wiha

From measurements at an electrical socket to applications in the e-mobility or photovoltaics sectors: hand tool manufacturer Wiha expands its range of measuring tools

Wiha is winner of the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022

Wiha is winner of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD, the world-renowned design prize. The winning product, the Wiha Pliers Wrench Family, won in the discipline “Product”, in the “Industry/Tools”. Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF DESIGN AWARD.
Multitool fastening tools are very popular among professionals, especially for mobile assignments as they allow them to carry only one tool instead of several individual screwdrivers. Hand tool manufacturer Wiha is now expanding its product range with the new PocketMax® screwdrivers with bit depot in the electric and magnetic versions. With their compact small size and light weight, the new everyday helpers fit into every shirt or trouser pocket and can be flexibly used for many fastening and application situations. If something needs fastening while you are high on a ladder, all you have to do is simply reach into your shirt or trouser pocket.

This year, the award in the category "manually operated products" was granted to the hand tool manufacturer Wiha Werkzeuge and its product "speedE® II electric e-screwdriver".

Wiha now offers another alternative to the classical tool bags and cases for basic equipment – the new tool backpack sets L with variations for electrical or mechanical applications.
In addition to the special qualification of the staff, another factor has top priority when working on electric and hybrid vehicles – the correct choice of insulated certified tools.
