Kjellberg Finsterwalde Wins Innovation Award

Proud award winners: Kjellberg Development Manager Volker Krink, Managing Director Sales Thomas Kagemann and Managing Director of the Kjellberg holding company Dr. Michael Schnick (f.l.t.r.) The participation in the international trade fair Blechexpo at the beginning of November 2019 in Stuttgart was successful for Kjellberg Finsterwalde in two respects. Crucial for this success have surely been the presented innovations. The stand concept with its focus on digitisation and networking as well as not least the won "Award for Blechexpo" were proof of that.

"It is a very special moment when a product, whose development one has accompanied for years, is appreciated in this way. This prize is also something special, because our development team was facing a completely new challenge with the digitisation topic that had to be mastered, "says the Kjellberg Development Manager Volker Krink visibly proud holding the" Award for Blechexpo "in his hands. Kjellberg Finsterwalde has invested several million euros and years of research in the latest generation of the plasma power source. The winner's trophy for the "Q" in the category of separation technology proves that all efforts are paying off.

The new Industry 4.0-compatible inverter power source "Q" combines precision plasma cutting at an exceptional level with the complex requirements of digitised production. In the future, systems can communicate between all stages of the value chain in a smart factory. With the slogan "Always on", the "Q" series was officially launched less than two months ago by Kjellberg Finsterwalde. A message that has been the motto of the pioneer of plasma cutting technology ever since. The real-time communication between the plant components and the process data exchange of networked machines are just two of the many noteworthy innovations that visitors were able to experience at the trade fair via a live broadcast from the Competence Center Plasma 4.0 from Kjellberg’s headquarter in Finsterwalde directly to Stuttgart. Thanks to the unique browser-based Q-Desk operator interface visitors were able to take a look at information such as FAQs or video tutorials directly on site as well.

The accompanying, large-scale social media campaign proves that Kjellberg Finsterwalde is actively living his new motto "Always on" and is thus heavily focussing on the topic of networking. In the future the Kjellberg group wants to make their know-how even more tangible both online as well as at trade fairs. At the end of the year, this will be once more shown at FABTECH in Chicago / USA (German Pavilion, hall B2, stand B13110) and at METALEX in Bangkok / Thailand (German Pavilion, hall 99, stand AM17).
