Initiated by the trade magazine MM Maschinenmarkt, the highly visible “Best of Industry” platform showcases the year’s outstanding industry products and recognizes the “best of the best” of these with the “Best of Industry Award,” now in its fifth year. In 2018, Klingelnberg received the coveted trophy in the “Industry 4.0” category for its cyberphysical gear production system. This year, Klingelnberg is a contender in the “Measuring and Testing Technology” category with its G Variant Precision Measuring Center for measuring multi-dimensional and complex components. On 06 April, the industry magazine opened an online poll for readers to choose their favorites from among the nominees.
Top accolades were achieved for the “Best of Industry Award” again in 2020, by way of a month-long vetting process for innovative solutions that had won an industry award, had been shortlisted or had attracted the most interest for their novel qualities from maschinenmarkt.de readers between 01 January and 31 December 2019. Klingelnberg won the reader-interest nomination by earning the most clicks for its reporting on the complete measurement of complex components. “We are extremely proud to have been nominated a second time for the Best of Industry Award,” said a delighted Martin Boelter, COO of the KLINGELNBERG Group. “This reaffirms that we get to the heart of innovation.”
Complete (Done-in-One) measurement of complex components in a single stage
Whether turning blanks, ground workpieces or rolling bearings – Klingelnberg G Variant Precision Measuring Centers are specifically designed for use in the production process of axially symmetrical components. With these machines, Klingelnberg follows the approach of executing various measurement processes in one stage as a complete measurement (Done-in-One). A Klingelnberg Precision Measuring Center is capable of fast measurement of dimensions, shape, contour and surface roughness in one automated cycle. This reduces the investment costs and helps to reduce the process costs. Furthermore, Klingelnberg Precision Measuring Centers also ensure the required measuring accuracy if they are used directly in production. As a result, not only does this save on air-conditioning costs, but the measuring center can also be directly integrated into the production process. This eliminates the need to set up several different machines, saving valuable production space. With its G Variant Precision Measuring Center, Klingelnberg is therefore making a significant contribution to reducing quality costs.
Have your say – every vote counts
Readers of the industry magazine and an independent jury of experts can now choose the winners of the “Best of Industry Awards” from among the nominees. The final result is based on a 50 percent weighting of the jury portion and a 50 percent weighting of the online reader survey. “We are hoping once again for active participation on the part of the readers and will of course be very pleased if as many of them as possible choose to cast their vote for us,” said Dr. Christof Gorgels, head of the Precision Measuring Center business division. The online survey is expected to remain open at https://www.maschinenmarkt.vogel.de/best-of-industry/voting20/ until beginning of June 2020.
The winners of the “Best of Industry Awards” will be honored on 25 June 2020.
