City of Dortmund - Economic Development |Corona does everything differently, but doesn't stop good ideas. That's why the finals of the nationwide start2grow 2020 start-up competition were held as a digital event.
The top 20 teams presented their business models in a live stream. Business models for digital, innovative or technological solutions were awarded prizes. From systems to increase the efficiency of industrial plants, substitutes for environmentally harmful carbon fibers, machines for glyphosate-free soil cultivation in agriculture to revolutionary modeling freedoms in 3D printing, there were exciting concepts.
The 2nd prize went to Smela – Smart Electric Actuators
Industrial plants require linear movements. Conventionally used compressed air systems are costly, complex and waste up to 95% energy. Smela drives save more than 75% energy compared to pneumatics and up to 80% installation space compared to electrical solutions. Fast commissioning and good controllability allow easy integration into the Industry 4.0 world.
