The Celette Eagle has won the 2022 Automechanika Frankfurt Innovation Award in the Body & Paint category.
The Eagle is a laser-assisted electronic measurement system used to determine chassis distortion. Results are compared with CAD coordinates supplied by the vehicle manufacturer, with the system able to detect deviations of 1.5 millimetres. An entire vehicle can be measured in no more than 10 minutes.
Overall, 133 products were submitted for judging in eight categories, which were evaluated by an international panel of 14 experts. The panel examined various criteria including the degree of innovation, cost-effectiveness, user-friendliness, functionality, relevance to the aftermarket, safety and quality, and contributions to environmental protection and sustainability.
According to Automechanika, this year’s award-winning products revealed a clear focus on digitalisation, new mobility and sustainability.
“Innovations are the focal point of Automechanika,” said Stephan Kurzawski, Senior Vice President of Messe Frankfurt, the organiser of Automechanika Frankfurt. “Over the next few days, more than 2800 exhibitors will be presenting their latest products and services, many of which are world firsts. In recent years, new products and smart solutions have been developed at a staggering rate. This once again highlights the wealth of innovation on offer in the international automotive aftermarket.”
The winners and finalists were featured in a special area located in the new Innovation4Mobility showcase in Hall 3.0.
