1st Place, Gold: Sandvik Coromant Silent Tools Plus

Sandvik Coromant Silent Tools Plus are anti-vibration tooling that deliver real-time sensory data to the equipment operator. This allows for better on-the-fly decision making because the device instantly detects chatter and displays vital job data such as vibration, backlash, surface quality, temperature, et cetera, over Bluetooth through a user-friendly dashboard.

2nd Place, Silver: OTT-JAKOB Power-Check Magazine

With the advent of Industry 4.0 upon us, OTT-JAKOB is pushing the envelope in regular preventative maintenance. The Power-Check Magazine provides fully automated pull-in force measurement reducing production waste, tool wear, spindle damage, machine downtime, and safety risks by monitoring clamping force on the tooling.

Logic Supply Logo

3rd Place, Bronze: Logic Supply CL200 Series

The CL200 is essentially an industrial grade single-board computer (SBC). SBCs like BeagleBones and Raspberry Pis are commonly used for sensor implementation and for the optimization of data collection on industrial equipment, whether it's for academic purposes or to aid a factory in attempt to achieve World Class OEE. SBCs are often physically fragile and lacking in computational capability. Logic Supply solves this issue by offering a more powerful SBC with substantial memory and protective enclosure with multiple mounting and placement options.
