Vectors Awards Deadline 28th February 2012

igus is running its third vector awards competition to reward challenging and innovative applications using cable carrier systems. Entrants from anywhere in the world are eligible to enter the competition with the deadline for submissions on 28th February, 2012. The presentation of the awards will take place on the igus exhibition stand during the Hanover Fair, 23rd to 27th April.
The judging panel includes expert scientists and engineers from ZVEI (the German Central Association of Electrical Engineering and Electronics), WZL (Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering), the Institute of Technology at RWTH Aachen University, and the Ministry of Transportation (TÜV Rheinland). The winners of the competition will be rewarded with cash prizes of 5,000 Euros for first place, 2,500 Euros for second place, and 1,000 Euros for third place.
"Modern polymer energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern-day automated equipment - ensuring the safe supply of energy, data, signals and media - on equipment such as cranes, machine tools and robots," says Justin Leonard at igus UK. "We are confident that the vector competition will once again attract the best of the best entrants to demonstrate the limits that continue to be broken with cable carriers in terms of loads, speeds, travels, and more."
More than 110 entrants, hailing from the USA, Canada, China, India, Korea, Singapore, Brazil and Europe, competed in the second vector award competition in 2010. CEZ Group, an energy supplier in the Czech Republic, took home the first place prize. The application, a 615m cable carrier system in a lignite-fired power plant, is currently the longest in the world using an Energy Chain cable carrier from igus.
