Award for best technical innovation in the nonwovens industry
A creative, novel solution with measurable benefits: This is what the judges demanded from the applicants for this year's IDEA Achievement Awards. In the category "Equipment", the ETA Sonotrode from Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik GmbH & Co. KG (Karlsbad, Germany) was selected by the jury as one of three finalists. The winner was determined by online voting, in which the Herrmann innovation prevailed.
Honour for Walter Herrmann"In 1996, my father Walter Herrmann won the award for 'Most Innovative Equipment' for our Microgap control, i.e. our first solution for the continuous bonding of nonwovens using ultrasound. It is also thanks to this development that our company has grown so successfully. We want to honour him with this award for our latest innovation," said CEO Thomas Herrmann at the award ceremony on 30 March at the IDEA trade fair in Miami, USA. He accepted the trophy together with his colleague Uwe Peregi, who heads the subsidiary Herrmann Ultrasonics in the USA, from INDA President David Rousse.
