Design award for TechnoAlpin’s T60
"Abitare" is a famous Italian monthly magazine devoted to the latest developments in the fields of architecture, interiors and design. In the last number, 45 outstanding design solutions from Italy were presented in the framework of the Italian Oxygen Award, including the innovative T60 snow gun from the house of TechnoAlpin.
The design of the T60 is the work of MM Design. With the T60, Alex Terzariol and his team have clearly demonstrated that outstanding engineering can go hand in hand with self-confident good looks. MM Design is located in Brixen (South Tyrol). Apart from TechnoAlpin, they work for other leading companies including Burton, Hoppe, Illy and Salewa.
The attractive exterior of the T60 conceals advanced technical specifications, which are of even greater importance for the snowmaker on the mountain. They are the contribution of TechnoAlpin's R&D team:
- seven permanent and 14 switchable hard-wearing Quadrijet nozzles with ceramic inserts
- compact valve technology with integrated water filter
- oil-free compressor engineered in aluminum with integrated cooling circuit
- 360° swivel capability
- High-tech turbine with separate motor for lower noise emissions combined with maximum air throughput for enhanced snowmaking capacity
