LogiMAT 2018 – Best Product Award
ProGlove wins the Best Product Award at LogiMAT 2018
Munich, March 13, 2018
Stuttgart – At LogiMAT 2018, the Munich-based start-up ProGlove was the winner of the ‘Best Product’ award in the category of ‘Identification, Packaging and Loading Technology, Load Securing’. ProGlove was awarded for the development of its intelligent data glove, including the integrated MARK barcode scanner. Out of more than 100 submissions, this year’s jury selected winners in a total of four categories – in its category, ProGlove was able to prevail against 27 competitors.
MARK was developed for the special requirements in logistics and production, in order to connect the labor force of workers with the Internet of Things. The intelligent data glove is already being used by more than 250 customers in the automotive industry (BMW, VW, Mahle Festo), the food trade (Rewe Group), aerospace (Lufthansa Technik) and department stores (IKEA), and is sustainably improving industrial processes among such customers. The intelligent glove makes it possible for warehouse staff to work faster, safer and more ergonomically – thanks to the integrated barcode scanner on the back of the glove, the operator is able to work hands-free and with ergonomic comfort. The scan function is activated by pressure on the textile trigger integrated into the glove. The worker then receives direct acoustic, haptic and visual feedback regarding the process steps. This increases efficiency and quality in equal measure.
The ‘Best Product’ award was created 15 years ago by the organizer of the LogiMAT in an effort to highlight the achievements of its exhibitors. Since then, the award has been given to innovative products that make a significant contribution to rationalization, cost savings and increased productivity in in-company logistics. LogiMAT, the international trade fair for intralogistics solutions and process management, is the leading international trade fair that, each year, offers a comprehensive overview of the market and expert knowledge transfer, with up to 50,000 visitors from 60 countries.
