IFOY AWARD Finalists in Test



Hall 3 of Messe Dortmund is the venue for the IFOY TEST DAYS 2022. From March 18 to 23, 14 products and solutions from twelve companies nominated for an IFOY AWARD 2022 will undergo the world's hardest intralogistics test.

Products and solutions from Cargotec Engineering, Jungheinrich, Locus Robotics, Magment, NAiSE, Noyes Technologies, robominds, SICK, SSI SCHÄFER, STILL, stow robotics and SYNAOS are nominated for an IFOY AWARD 2022.

In the three-stage audit, all the appliances first undergo the IFOY test by Dutch intralogistics expert Theo Egberts. The finalists in each category are not compared with each other, but with the relevant equipment in the competition. The appliances undergo standardised driving and functional tests, including the IFOY test protocol, which comprises more than 80 criteria such as sustainability, cost-effectiveness, safety and ergonomics of the nominees.

In the second part of the audit, experts carry out the IFOY Innovation Check. Scientists from the Dortmund Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML), the Chair of Technical Logistics at the University of Dresden, the Chair of Materials Handling Material Flow Logistics at the Technical University of Munich and the Stuttgart Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA assessed the nominees in terms of market relevance, customer benefits, type of design and degree of innovation. The audit is concluded by the assessment of the 25 jurors and their approved advisors.
