Bomag awards innovation prize to STW


Sensor-Technik Wiedemann has been recognized with an innovation prize by German OEM Bomag.

For over 20 years now, Sensor-Technik Wiedemann (STW) has supplied control units, I/O modules, sensors and operating and display elements in a mixture of standard products and customer-specific systems to Bomag, a market leader in the compaction technology sector.

At the end of June, the Kaufbeuren, Germany-based supplier was recognized for its force of innovation by the OEM. In particular the readiness of STW to strike out on new paths in the development and adaptation of the products impressed Bomag. STW was also able to reliably implement the appropriate requirements for the robustness of the solutions.

STW received the award for the collaborative development of the Economizer, a display unit for compaction conditions that links and assesses the sensor data using specially-developed algorithms. The most recent orientation of STW regarding the support of data management and connectivity with innovative onboard modules and associated cloud services has also impressed the OEM.

Along with the A-supplier of the Year 2016 certificate, the Innovation Award was presented to Sonja Wiedemann, STW managing director, and STW sales manager Klaus Gnahm, by Bomag’s Timo Löw, head of electrical engineering, Jens Gick, manager global purchasing, and Oliver Michel, commodity manager electricals.
