iQ Power Tools, manufacturer of premium power tools with integrated dust collection systems, was awarded the “Best Of” Innovation for its revolutionary new saw, the iQ252® dry cut bridge saw, during The International Surface Event (TISE), earlier this month at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
TISE selected the “Best Of” Awards Program winners for 2023, and iQ Power Tools was chosen as winner in the Innovation Category. TISE, along with the awards program sponsors, host the “Best Of” Award programs to celebrate industry innovation and ingenuity, and exhibitors’ contributions to the floor covering industry. The “Best Of” Event Awards is an annual awards program for exhibiting companies whose product, program, service, business practice and/or booth design are considered to be “Best Of” in their class.
Paul Guth, iQ’s President of Product Development., stated that the team was thrilled to have received the Innovation Award, as innovation is at the core of what they do. “We all worked very hard to develop this technology, and this proves that our perseverance paid off. As our industry advances, the need for safe, efficient and quality tools becomes more and more of a reality. Winning this innovation award proves that we are developing products that our industry demands.”
The iQ252® is a 10” dry cut bridge saw specifically designed for progressive tile setters and contractors. Equipped with the world’s first fully integrated dust control technology, it allows for tiles to be cut indoors or outdoors… with no water! This state-of-the-art product features a 10” blade, has the ability to produce a depth cut up to 1” and can handle a 60” rip with one pass.
“Our team has to stay on the front line of product and innovation for our industry,” stated Jim Mackall, President of iQ. “The iQ252 is a complete game changer. The reactions of attendees at TISE were very positive. Contractors had the opportunity to actually use the saw, offer ideas and now, eagerly wait for its actual production and availability, both of which we anticipate later this year.”
