Vote for the DirectIndustry i-NOVO Awards


Last July 7 DirectIndustry launched its first i-NOVO Awards at the EMO trade show. The competition highlights the most innovative products of the show in two categories:

This competition was open to industrial manufacturers in various sectors: machine tools, industrial IT (CAM, CAD/CAM, etc.), metrology and robotics.

It attracted more than a hundred European contestants.
