Boge continuous improvement system wins award

BOGE was nominated for the ‘Best of Industry Award’ by the German MM MaschinenMarkt industry magazine for its BOGE CIP continuous improvement program. The service concept achieved second place in the Industry 4.0 category. Using ongoing data analysis, BOGE identifies energy saving potentials and continuously further develops its compressed air systems in operation — a feature that is said to be unique in the field of compressed air.

MM MaschinenMarkt honours leading innovators from the industry in nine categories, from drive technology to metal cutting. This year, a total of 31 companies entered their products and services in the competition. The company Klingelnberg emerged victorious at the gala in Würzburg on the evening of 7 June, with its cyber-physical gearwheel production system.

“Our BOGE CIP is already an award winner. Even if it just missed being honoured this time, we have implemented an unprecedented and unique concept,” said Thorsten Meier, CEO of Boge. Based on data analyses, Boge is making its systems increasingly energy efficient in operation with the continuous improvement program.

At the Best of Industry Award the online voting participants helped determine the winners with 50% of the vote. Without being aware of the result of this vote, an independent specialist jury also scrutinised the products and services. This included distinguished scientists and professors from the fields of production and logistics, along with a patent lawyer, the editor-in-chief of MM MaschinenMarkt, Udo Schnell, and two specialist editors. The team of nine experts evaluated the nominated products based on criteria such as their degree of technological innovation, the benefit for industry, environment and society, their economic viability and their presentation. The reader and jury assessments were then merged into a point system.
