The prize was handed over by Roland Weigert, State Secretary in the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy during an official ceremony at the trade fair grounds in Munich on Sunday, March 17th 2019.

The LSK-1 universal welding head complies with all requirements for the application of Industry 4.0 and provides full network possibilities in the industrial production process.All process-relevant functions are digitally monitored which ensures a smooth and very efficient production flow.

Since 1988 the family-run enterprise from Wörthsee has won the Bavarian State Prize for excellent trade performance five times.
