Filderstadt / Beijing, June 2012 – In mid-June, a CMJ Machine-building and Metal-working Award was bestowed on Dürr Ecoclean in recognition of its development of the EcoCBase W3 cleaning system. With this distinction, presented for the first time in eight categories in 2012 by the China National Machine Tool Corporation in conjunction with the CMJ Chinamac Journal (a specialized technical periodical) and Adsale Publishing House, the award sponsors acknow­­ledge innovative technologies and outstanding accomplishments in the machine tool building and toolmaking sector. In all, 40 companies won the coveted prize.

The CMJ Machine-building & Metal-working Awards were presented in the categories of exceptional technological innovation relating to machine tools, cutting tools, testing equipment, lubricants, parts and accessories, as well as for best customer service, high corporate social responsibility and major market influence. Applications had been invited from companies around the world. Among the 40 winning entrants, Dürr Ecoclean was the only manufacturer of cleaning machines.

As a globally active equipment manufacturer, Dürr Ecoclean convinced the experts with its EcoCBase W3, a compact aqueous-based cleaning system. This powerful yet cost-efficient machine distinguishes itself by innovative process features resulting in enhanced cleaning and energy efficiency. One such capability is the choice offered between hot cleaning at 65°C and cold cleaning at around 35°C. Moreover, the standard machine package includes a vacuum dryer which delivers 100% dry parts even after cold cleaning while saving up to 50% energy compared to conventional technology. Thanks to its modular design, the EcoCBase W3 is adaptable to diverse cleaning tasks encountered in the metalworking industry. These range from single-stage processes through intermediate wash and rinse cycles up to sophisticated final cleaning operations involving washing, rinsing and preservation steps.

The award-giving ceremony took place on 13 June in Beijing within the framework of the CIMES trade fair, China International Machine Tool & Tools Exhibition. Of the award winners, 70% were selected by research and academic experts while the remaining 30% were determined through a poll taken among the readers of CMJ Chinamac Journal.
