Göteborg, Sweden, 2018/09/27 - The WLX, one of FlexLink’s hygienic transport solutions and part of the FoodTech offer, won the German Innovation Award within the “Machines and Engineering” category - FlexLink.com.
The WLX is a safe, clean, wide belt solution with rounded corners and flat surfaces to maximize the hygienic design. Since hollow bodies and crevices are eliminated, pathogens and contaminants do not risk to get trapped, lowering the need of water and detergents in the cleaning process.
The German Innovation Award, was handed out by the German Design Council, whose task is to identify significant and powerful product innovation.
The feedback on the WLX has been positive ever since it was launched in 2014, winning several prices before the Innovation Award, including the Red Dot Award, the iF Award and the German Design Award.
At the 2016 Red Dot Award, competing with 5000 products from 57 countries, the FlexLink solution got an “Honorable mention” by the 41 expert’s strong, global expert-jury. One year later the WLX won one of the most prestigious and largest design competitions in the world, the iF award, that has been an institution ever since 1953, becoming a symbol of quality and trust.
We can now add the German Innovation Award in the row of prestigious awards, an award that the German Design Council describes in the following wordings:
“Anyone who beats the high-caliber competition has successfully proven to be one of the best”.
The WLX adheres to EHEDG and 3A design guidelines and addresses the higher hygienic requirements associated with primary and secondary packaging, setting new standards for cleaning results and cleaning process time in the food industry.
