This competition has really been a defining experience for many people at Turcar. After last year’s success and learning experience, we really wanted to take a step further this time. We collected ideas from all over the company and received many ideas for both categories. We went through the stages that define our company’s philosophy: from creative ideas to design, process realization and – in case of #MadeonANCA – also production. We profit not only from the strong message in this contest, but also the joint learning experience. We will definitely be back to defend this victory.

It’s been an honour to be selected by ANCA as a judge in the Tool of the Year competition on behalf of ZOLLER Inc. It was great to use our technology to measure which finalist’s tool was closest to the nominal tolerance stated on the drawing in terms of diameter and profile. In the commercial world the level of accuracy on a finished tool is what sets tool manufacturers apart from their competition.
