Hannover, 21 April 2010: “The prize money of Euro 100,000 is naturally of great value, but the response to the Hermes Award in terms of visitor numbers and media interest is almost priceless.” LPKF CEO Ingo Bretthauer is extremely satisfied with the first days at the show after receiving what must be one of the top innovation prizes from the hands of the German Minister for Education and Research, Anette Schavan.
The award was for the Fusion3D, a highly innovative laser system used for the manufacture of three dimensional circuit carriers made of plastic.
