Among trade exhibitions, congresses and new technologies; the innovative developments were the real stars of Powtech — From filling-level sensor to the containment-solution: Powtech 2016 offered innovations in all sizes and for all fields of application ranging from pharmaceutical manufacturing to solid material. New technologies and efficient processes were the main focus of this hotspot of the mechanical processing technology. Best reasons to celebrate at the festive Technology Awards ceremony …

Many want to score with innovations — but only top developments take it to the winners’ podium: In 2016, more than 30 companies contested with recent developments for the coveted Technology Award at the Powtech.

Engineers and inventors competed for the innovation-champion’s title in three categories: Processing technology equipment and components, pharmaceutical/food, control and automation/particle characterization.

By no means an easy task for the jury from editors of the journals PROCESS, PharmaTEC, Schüttgut and external technology experts. Yet at the end, the race was clearly: Revolutionary measuring technologies, customized 3D-components and clean containment took the price — yet, also the companies with second and third rank could rejoice over the prizes (see box).

The prize for “Processing technology equipment and components” was especially contested — here, the 3D-sealing technology by Tedima walked away with the first prize. But hang on! A sealing technology as innovation-champion?

The winners in "Processing technology equipment and components ": 1. Price: 3-D Sealing Technology by Tedima (left: Dietmar Siebler), 2. Place: Inline-Disperser Epsilon, Netzsch Feinmahltechnik (middle: Gerhard Kolb), 3.: Herding Maxx, Herding Filtertechnik (right: Jörg-Armin Schulz)

Three Tickets to the Podium, Please!

What may look trivial at first glance is in fact a quantum leap in sealing. With this revolutionary sealing concept, the inevitable irregularities of the sealing surface are initially recorded with the help of a laser. In accordance with the data determined and stored this way, seals of perfect fitting, customized for the irregularities and readily reproducible can be produced at a CNC-plant. Customized and guaranteed. This maximizes tightness of even distribution of surface pressure in case of low, necessary bolt forces.
