The award was presented on November 22, at the STARTUP THE FUTURE event in Stuttgart, with Dieffenbacher securing the “Winner” category for its AI-supported digitalization solution EVORIS. 

Baden-Württemberg’s Minister of Economic Affairs, Dr Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, attended the awards ceremony. 

Manufacturers in the wood-based panels and forming industries use EVORIS software to intelligently digitalize, monitor, analyse and optimize their production. 

Collected data is processed in various EVORIS apps. Each app has its own functions, but combining their results provides manufacturers with a comprehensive analysis. 

“EVORIS initially helps our customers digitalize their production across plants and independent of make and manufacturer,” explained Jürgen Woll, vice president automation at Dieffenbacher. 

Dieffenbacher CEO Christian Dieffenbacher said the award validated EVORIS as an “outstanding digitalization solution” for the wood-based panels and forming industries.
