The MLT² (Moving Light Truss²) from HOF has won the Innovation Award for Crafts of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The prize was awarded on the 4th of October in a festive ceremony at the K21 Ständehaus in Düsseldorf by NRW Minister of Economic Affairs Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart.
The MLT² Pre Rig Truss from HOF was awarded the Innovation Prize for Crafts in North Rhine-Westphalia because it enables shorter set-up and dismantling times and, thanks to the dolly with its telescopic legs, requires less manpower than its predecessor, the MLT. Likewise, the rotatable steel fork connectors allow vertical and horizontal circles to be created, offering new possibilities for stage design and light shows. The dolly is foldable and can be stacked, which in turn saves an enormous amount of space at the event storage location.
In addition to this, compared to its predecessor, the MLT² has received further features such as a forklift adapter, a toolbox, a rain cover, a spacer and a measuring tool for easy and precise adjustment of the circles, which make the users’ work extremely easy.
The development of the MLT² took place in close cooperation with customers and partner companies, and at the end of the development process, 90% of the customer’s wishes were put into practice. The award is also a signal to the event industry that things are looking up again after a long period of standstill due to the pandemic and that our industry is being heard and seen in a certain way.
