Oerlikon Balzers: Design Award for Coating System
The Ingenia coating system made by Oerlikon Balzers, Liechtenstein, has won the iF Design Award 2013 in the industry/skilled trades category. The jury recognized that Balzers was also a pacesetter in system construction and design.
The award-winning Ingenia system, which made its world premiere in September 2011 at the EMO fair in Hanover, Germany, combines state-of-the-art coating technology and simple operation with eye-catching design. With Ingenia, Balzers’ engineers and physicists succeeded in extending the company’s technological lead by developing a coating system that has the highest level of power densities and takes up a minimal amount of space.
As a complete unit, Ingenia won over the international jury at the highly regarded German iF International Forum Design Organization based in Hanover. The jury selected the coating system in the award category of industry/skilled trades. The award will be presented in February 2013.
