Vote for the Plant Engineering 2016 Product of the Year Finalists


It is a cyclical process: More innovation brings more improvement, but since manufacturers constantly strive to improve, they will look for more innovation to continue that improvement. It is in that spirit that for the 29th year, Plant Engineering offers its roster of Product of the Year finalists for your use, and for your vote. Voting is now under way for this year's Product of the Year awards, so consider these products carefully and cast your vote for those products you feel are the best of the best for 2016.

This year's 114 new products across 15 categories present an opportunity for manufacturers to imagine their own innovative process. Together they provide the kind of new ideas needed to help manufacturers improve their operation, better measure and manage the resources they use each day, and keep plant operation running at peak efficiency.
