Ecoclean's EcoCvelox Product Receives German Innovation Award
The deburring, cleaning and drying system received the gold award in Machines & Engineering division of the Excellence in Business to Business competition.
Ecoclean Inc. is among the winners of this year's German Innovation Award, presented by the German Design Council, for its EcoCvelox product. Launched onto the market in 2019, EcoCvelox received the gold award in the Machines & Engineering division of the Excellence in Business to Business competition class. Decisive criteria included the degree of innovation, technical quality and function, user benefit and cost-effectiveness.
EcoCvelox provides high-pressure water jet deburring, cleaning and drying. Usually, these processes generally require two systems, often from different manufacturers. The jury explained its decision to grant the award for this product thus: “Worldwide and across all industrial sectors, the requirements for component cleanliness are growing. Reliable processes for deburring, cleaning and drying parts are essential, not only to meet the increasing demands but also to ensure sure that components will function faultlessly and that subsequent processes will produce the required results. Now, for the first time, EcoCvelox combines these steps in a single system, and also takes into account the need for adaptability and individualization. This not only results in lower costs, for example due to short cycle and retooling times and long tool lives, but also fewer disruptions during operation.”
Initiated and organized by the German Design Council, the German Innovation Award was founded in 1953 by the German Federal Government and is sponsored by the Federation of German Industries. The prize will be awarded for the third time in 2020. The winners were selected by a jury of physicists, patent consultants, computer scientists, product designers and technology historians.
Powder coating is one of the most durable finishes that can be applied to industrial manufactured products, and offers excellent corrosion protection and is very safe because of its lack of volatile organic compounds.
The German Association of the Automotive Industry’s VDA Volume 19 is the first comprehensive standardization document for characterizing the cleanliness of products within the automotive industry’s quality chain.
Better adhesion, enhanced corrosion and blister resistance, and reduced coating-part interactions make pretreatment a must.
