Cifa's award-winning Coguaro mixer for transporting concrete
Cifa has received a second Red Dot Award for its styling of the Coguaro mixer for transporting concrete in demanding environments. In 2014, the Red Dot Award (a worldwide award for product design) went to the company’s Energya truck mixer. The Coguaro was designed by the Styling Centre of Cifa in Senago, Milan, Italy, and powered by a Perkins 1106D-E66TA diesel engine producing 121kW at 2,220rpm, the Coguaro’s drum has a nominal capacity of 4m³ and a geometric volume of 4.8m³.
“For us, coming from the world of design with a purely aesthetic point of view, working in a team with the R&D department, that knows the components of the Coguaro, was useful in finding the right solutions, reaching an aesthetical-functional compromise, a mix of technology and design,” says Samuele Montorfano, who is responsible for the Styling Centre Team.
