IMKO wins the bauma innovation prize 2016. The award rewards IMKO’s water-cement analyzer SONO-WZ, a mobile measuring device to measure fastly and safely the water content of fresh concrete. Customers just have to set parameters of the concrete and immerse the probe fixed at a rod several times into a bucket filled with concrete. The display then shows the respective water content. There are no more long waiting times as in the common Darr procedure. It avoids too early setting of the concrete and increases with this the quality and life time of concrete buildings.
The Bavarian minister for economic affairs Ilse Aigner hands over the prize in a glamorous event in Munich’s church of All Saints.
