HLAE wins i-NOVO Design Award; WPLFE takes second place
Neugart was awarded first place for the i-NOVO Design Award and second place for the i-NOVO Tech Award at the trade fair SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Germany.
The Hygienic Design gearbox HLAE and the right angle planetary gearbox with output shaft WPLFE were nominees. Industry experts selected 40 nominees for the two categories. The public was then allowed to vote at the trade fair as well as online on Direct Industry’s website.
“We are proud that both the HLAE and the WPLFE were evaluated and honored by the industry experts at this international trade fair,” said Swen Herrmann, Head of Product Management & Marketing at Neugart GmbH.
The Hygienic Design gearbox HLAE took first place up against 10 other nominated products for the i-NOVO Design Award. It received nearly 30 percent of the vote. Its optimized design for the special requirements of the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food industries set it distinctly apart.
The right angle planetary gearbox with flange output shaft was also successful. The WPLFE was able to hold its ground against 28 other product nominees for the i-NOVO Tech Award, receiving second place.

“We would like to extend our gratitude for all those who voted for our planetary gearboxes. It is a confirmation of our work and encourages us to develop products that are both technically and uniquely innovative products,” said Herrmann.
