At the end of 2021, the winner of the prestigious Innovation Award offered by VDE Verlag in association with the German Electro and Digital Industry Association ZVEI and the Standardization Council Industry 4.0 was chosen for the sixth time. The award focuses on products that contribute to digitalization in industrial production. "The need for digital industrial products is immense. More than just an acknowledgment of our work, we see this award as a motivation to keep advancing digitalization in painting and final assembly systems with our smart solutions," says Gerhard Alonso Garcia, Vice President MES & Controls, pleased with the outstanding performance. The products from the DXQanalyze family gather available data such as process and workpiece information and evaluate it. In this way, possible quality defects in workpieces as well as imminent wear on system components can be identified at the point of origin, and appropriate actions can be defined. This data is visualized and can be historically evaluated over long periods of time, in some cases in real time. In addition, large quantities of data, including historical data, can be combined with machine learning to continuously produce precise predictions for the future. The award focuses on products that make an important contribution to industrial production. Over several rounds of voting, the jury made up of members of the public and industry experts agreed that DXQanalyze more than satisfies this criterion.
