2024 Gold Medal Recipients


Once again, the competition jury awarded the Gold Medals at the ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE 2024 fair, in the categories of Industrial Products and Science for the Economy, as well as at the Logistics, Warehousing, and Transport fair, MODERNLOG 2024. As the experts evaluating the submitted solutions emphasized, the selection of the winners was very difficult due to their high level of innovation and unique features related to sustainable development. The jury decided to award twenty-two Gold Medals to products submitted by exhibitors at the ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE fair. Additionally, five of these prestigious distinctions were awarded to companies presenting their offerings at the Modernlog fair.

Once again, the panel of experts, after hours of deliberation, made decisions to distinguish the best products and services by awarding them the MTP Gold Medal – one of the most prestigious and recognizable trade fair awards in our country.

World-class Winners

The competition jury was chaired by Prof. Dr. Eng. Michał Adam Wieczorowski, Vice-Rector for Development and Cooperation with the Economy at the Poznań University of Technology. He replaced the long-serving chairman, Prof. Dr. Eng. Jan Żurek – Vice-Rector for Cooperation with the Economy, Head of the Department of Technology Design, Institute of Mechanical Technology at the Poznań University of Technology. "This year, the management of the MTP Group made me a very honorable offer to chair the deliberations of the Competition Court, qualifying the submitted solutions for the Gold Medal. It is a very responsible task, but it is facilitated by an excellent group of domain experts. It is their knowledge that allows us to identify the so-called gems among the presented proposals," notes Prof. Wieczorowski.

The products awarded this year represent a world-class level, confirming the presence of the latest solutions in our industrial market. New trends in IT solutions are evident, particularly artificial intelligence procedures, which are increasingly being used in various industries. Aware of the issues stemming from workforce shortages, many manufacturers are boldly turning to ideas related to automation and robotics. "Also noticeable are solutions based on modular construction, allowing for faster and more flexible retooling of workstations. The principles of sustainable development have also become standard, with a strong emphasis on ecology and ensuring the best possible world for future generations. This is evident in the materials used and the reduction of energy consumption required to power devices and conduct technological processes. There are solutions where manufacturers consider Industry 5.0 as the next step in technological development after Industry 4.0," comments the jury chairman on this year's competition.

The awarded products are characterized by greater efficiency, ensuring a more competitive position for users. It is worth noting that this year's proposals also include software and services. Additionally, many of the proposed products are of Polish origin.

Poland as an Important Market for Investment

"Our domestic industry is developing more dynamically, entering difficult international markets without complexes. We also have solutions where the commercialization of scientists' ideas or initiatives from national offices, closely cooperating with the market, is used. In short, despite the global economy experiencing a period of challenges, there are clear positive trends showing emerging innovations drawing from various sources of inspiration. The presence of such solutions at the ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE 2024 and MODERNLOG 2024 fairs in Poznań confirms that our country is an important market worth investing in and developing products and services," adds Prof. Michał Adam Wieczorowski.

New - Grand Prix Award

This year, the jury members paid particular attention to sustainable development, ensuring that producing new products does not degrade the surrounding world. A novelty of this year's MTP Gold Medal competition at the ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE and MODERNLOG fairs is the awarding of a special Grand Prix for an exceptional solution that impressed the experts by showing interesting possibilities.

The laureate will be announced at the opening ceremony of the ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE fair on June 4, 2024, during which this year's Gold Medals will be awarded.

Altergrinding E

SYNTACO SP. Z O.O. - applicant | LUBRINNOVA - manufacturer

ALTERGRINDING E is based on colourless synthetic esters of plant origin, suitable for operations where the cleanliness of the workpiece and machine is an essential condition. Its special formula has been developed for sharpening carbide and HSS steel tools, where it is important to avoid cobalt leaching in order to maintain the cleanliness of the machine and the health of the operator. This product is perfect for grinding or light cutting operations because its low viscosity combined with the "secret" ingredient developed in our laboratories promotes the decantation of dust or metal shavings, making them easier to filter and leaving the machine clean at all times. Despite its low viscosity, it has a high flash point, making its use safe and very economic due to low consumption through low evaporation or spraying. This liquid is ECOLOGICALLY DESIGNED and can therefore be sourced from a regeneration chain to which it can then be allocated at end-of-life, helping to reduce CO2 emissions and reducing the use of non-renewable substances.
