Ganter Engineering Challenge – The Winning Entry
Design for an automatic contour miller with CAD components by the CADENAS PARTcommunity convinces the jury
In the autumn of 2012, Otto Ganter GmbH & Co. KG and CADENAS GmbH started the first Engineering Challenge with standard parts of their 3D CAD product catalog. Engineers had time until the end of November to enter their most exciting application for the challenge in Ganter's CAD catalog in the PARTcommunity download portal to win a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
Jury amazed at the wealth of interesting design ideas
Ganter's technical jury picked the lucky winner from over 45 practical engineering entries.
"Our challenge together with CADENAS was a resounding success. We were amazed at the number of applications entered. For Ganter this was a convenient way of receiving ideas and concepts for the advance development of products directly from engineers", Axel Weber, head of marketing at Otto Ganter GmbH & Co. KG, summarised the success of the joint Engineering Challenge.
The design by a Singen-based engineering office for an automatic contour miller ultimately convinced the jury. The machine automatically contour-mills plastic or wooden window construction profile sections. The profile sections are milled fully automatic after inserting the profiles and setting the depth stops.
The lucky winner received a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
Ganter GmbH & Co. KG spared no effort to meet the winner of the design competition in person and to hand him the prize together with a first prize certificate.
