Announcing the 2017 NED Innovation Award Winners!

New Equipment Digest took the stage at the IW Manufacturing & Technology Show in Cleveland this week to announce the 11 winners of the 2017 NED Innovation Awards.

In January, NED editors and advisors poured through over 2,000 new industrial products published on the pages of New Equipment Digest in 2016 to select 27 of the most disruptive, industry-shifting innovations we could find. After that, we put the hard decision up to you, asking our readers to vote on their choice of the most innovative products of the year.
