Minebea Intec: Four wins at the Automation Inside Awards

Success all along the line: In the Readers' Choice Awards of the international online platform "Automation Inside", Minebea Intec successfully beat the competition in December. A total of four awards went to the global supplier of industrial weighing and inspection technologies. The company thus won all the categories in which they were nominated.

The annual Readers' Choice Awards of the online platform "Automation Inside" is an established competition in which readers vote for the best automation companies and products in a total of 18 categories. The competition offers an ideal opportunity for readers to judge which products are particularly recommendable.

Three products from Minebea Intec were nominated for the 2021 Awards - and all of them beat the competition: In the category of "Best Sensor", the innovative weighing module Novego won, whose advantages were also well received by readers. The hygienic all-in-one solution is not only distinguished by its particularly easy installation: Novego reliably provides precise measurement results in weighing processes - even with transverse forces of up to 20% of the nominal load. A technological advantage that benefits a wide range of applications.

In the "Best Automation Software" category, the top spot went to the successful ProRecipe XT software, which offers users a wide range of benefits. In the networked recipe management system, materials, recipes and batches can be managed and production orders generated from them, which are then made available for processing at the connected weighing stations. With an optional connection to the customer's ERP system, this step can be automated - duplicate data maintenance is no longer necessary. At the station, ProRecipe XT guides the user safely and efficiently through the weighing process with its sophisticated user guidance.

Minebea Intec took the third victory in the "Best Control System" category with an established classic, the Maxxis 5 weighing indicator, which had already secured the award in the previous three years. The crowning glory of this year's awards, however, was the award for "Best Automation Company" - whereas last year it was second place.

 "We are very pleased about the awards: Especially the title as "Best Automation Company" shows that not only our strong recipe software ProRecipeXT, but our overall package of high-quality products, comprehensive software and service offering as well as individually adapted weighing and inspection solutions convinced the readers," says Willy-Sebastian Metzger, Director Strategy, Business Development & Marketing at Minebea Intec, who also sees good opportunities to confirm the strong result for the coming year. "Despite the current difficult situation, for example concerning supply bottlenecks, our goals remain high: We want to continue to show what "the true measure" means with new offers and products in the coming years," says Metzger with an outlook on the coming year.
