7th vector award
Deadline for submissions:
28th February 2020

7. vector award 2020

Contest for inspiring energy solutions and e-chain systems with cables ...

Modern polymer energy supply chains are the umbilical cord of mechanical engineering and automation. They ensure the safe supply of energy, data, signals and media, while being continuously in motion. From cranes to machine tools, from industrial robots to laboratory technology, they can be used universally. The vector award is for creative applications involving the use of energy supply systems in the form of energy chains with cables and hoses. These can be in the form of versatile energy chains with cables.
 
The vector award is a worldwide joint initiative initiated by igus. The winners will be selected by an expert jury composed of members from the fields of science, specialist media and associations and will be awarded at the 2020 Hannover Messe (20th - 24th April 2020).
