These included two Gold Award triumphs in two key categories: Reindustrialisation and Smart Manufacturing with the “OWL” Intelligent Production Line for high-tech safety control devices and the C2M – Intelligent Manufacturing Application for Mass Customised Jewellery Production respectively.
Organised by the MIS Division of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE), the Award aims to recognise the excellent achievements of relevant industries in Hong Kong in enhancing their manufacturing productivity, product quality and innovation in real industrial cases. This year, it includes three award categories: Reindustrialisation Award, Smart Manufacturing Award and Innovation Award; each with gold, silver, bronze and merit awards. HKPC is proud to attain two gold awards in two key categories, Reindustrialisation and Smart Manufacturing, which are both key driving forces of the new economy.
