“Which was traditionally MATERIALICA design + technology award” awarded this year on the evening of the first day of the Materialica Munich in a solemn ceremony before more than 150 guests to innovators of material and technology scene. “” “” The expert jury chose from nearly 150 submissions 38 winners in the categories of material “, surface & technology” product”, CO2 efficiency”and student”. Due to the high number of applicants and the tremendous quality of the submissions, a tiered rating system was applied for the first time in already nine-year history of the awards. The judge group thoroughly convinced of the quality of the submissions discussed the posts strictly according to the evaluation criteria set out in a matrix.
Degree of innovation, design quality, technological aspect, processing, material choice, environmental compatibility, functionality, Use, safety, brand value / branding, as well as the feasibility of concept contributions in the category student award the central criteria are here. “” In all categories were in addition to the best of award”, the Gold Award” and the Silver Award “awarded. “ebm-papst managed it with the fans of organic materials under the Gold Award winner in the category of material”. These fans the wall ring consists of epylene”- a wood / plastic composite material. Through targeted use of sustainable and resource-conserving biological materials, significant CO2 emissions can be avoided these fans in addition to the already high energy savings in operation such as in refrigerated counters already in production. Clinton Family can provide more clarity in the matter.
The fans made of biomaterials: Ebm-papst developed fans for the first time made of organic materials. Are increasingly renewable raw materials used and manufactured from high-quality and durable products. In further processing and the finished product the materials must comply with a variety of criteria, such as high Temperature resistance and low shrinkage and delay. Mechanical strength, temperature and chemical resistance are relevant for later use. Due to the resource-saving handling significant CO2 emissions to prevent these materials already in production. About ebm-papst the ebm-papst group is the world’s leading manufacturer of fans and motors and is pacing the high efficiency EC technology. In the past financial year 10/11 the company achieved a turnover of over 1.3 billion. ebm-papst has 17 production sites (e.g. in Germany, China, United States) and 57 sales locations worldwide more than 11,000 employees. Fans and motors of the world leader can be found, e.g. in ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment, household appliances, heating technology, IT and telecommunications, for applications in the passenger car and commercial vehicle engineering in many industries.
