macio design for YXLON CT Systems lands a win at the German Innovation Awards
Developed by macio for YXLON International, the user interface for their new generation of industrial computer tomography systems has been chosen as the winner at the renowned German Innovation Awards 2018.
The coveted German Innovation Awards showcase innovative products and projects, as well as their manufacturers and designers, in two competition classes: “Excellence in Business to Consumer” and “Excellence in Business to Business”. In the “Excellence in Business to Business“ category, macio and YXLON can be delighted with their successful joint project. Against 450 submissions, it prevailed as the winning project, selected by a top-level jury under the criteria quality of innovation, user benefit, and economy.
“Geminy” belongs to the high-resolution CT system, YXLON FF 20/35 CT, and is now also being successfully installed on the brand new YXLON FF85 CT inspection system. Developed by macio according to the requirements of YXLON, the software enables intuitive control of these CT systems via Smart Touch operation. Logical division across two monitors simplifies the analytical processes and shortens the analyst’s familiarisation time, so that it can be worked productively within a short period. User-oriented profiles guarantee optimum inspection results for both the occasional and the experienced user, leading to greater efficiency in everyday testing.
“To be honoured with the German Innovation Award for product innovation in technical software is fantastic! We are highly delighted with the recognition, and it will inspire us to continue to work innovatively with our customers on their products”, said Stefanie C. Zürn, head of design at macio GmbH, happily.
Jan Tamm, vice president of strategic marketing at YXLON: “The support of the user interface and user experience experts at macio exceeded our expectations, and enabled us to achieve our goal of having simple, intuitive operation of our products.”
The German Innovation Award distinguishes products and solutions across industry that, above all, demonstrate user-centricity and added value over previous solutions. So, there are, in every industry, innovations that shape the future and improve life. Sometimes these can be seen right away – however, often they are not. The German Innovation Awards want to change this. They are making superb accomplishments visible to a wide public and ensure successful positioning in the market.
