For the fifth year running, the trade magazine MM Maschinenmarkt honored outstanding industry innovations with its "Best of Industry Award" on June 25, 2020. In total, 22 companies vied for the prize in nine categories. Klingelnberg was among the lucky winners, receiving accolades in the “Measurement Technology” category for its “Complete Measurement in a Single Stage – Done-in-One” solution.
Already a winner of the prestigious award in 2018 for its “Cyberphysical Production System” in the “Industry 4.0” category, the machine manufacturer once again won over the jury of experts for the “Best of Industry Award 2020.” The jury selection was preceded by an online reader vote, which accounted for 50% of the evaluation process. Only select prize-winning industrial products were eligible for the nomination. Qualified nominees included products or solutions from all branches of industry that had already won an industry award in 2019 or had been short-listed, or received the most clicks from readers of the MM trade magazine.
“We are delighted to be among the award winners for the second time,” said Dr. Christof Gorgels, Head of Precision Measuring Centers. “The award is hugely important for us and once again highlights our innovative capacity in the marketplace.” The gala, which could not be held as a live event with an audience as originally planned, was pre-recorded at the event organizer’s in-house studio. The video is available to anyone interested on the social media channel YouTube at: bit.ly/2YtXWpu. During the recording, all nominees and products were presented and, of course, the winners enjoyed a congratulatory speech given by the editorial staff of MM Maschinenmarkt.
The award-winning solution: complete measurement (Done-in-One) of complex components in a single stage
Whether turning blanks, ground workpieces or roller 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.
