The MX-System has earned top accolades, is recognised in the highest category by the Red Dot Award, and is honoured with the iF Design Award.
Beckhoff presents the MX-System, a groundbreaking automation solution that has the potential to revolutionise the automation industry by eliminating conventional control cabinets. This innovative system has garnered prestigious awards, including the “Best of the Best” Red Dot Award and the iF Design Award, acknowledging its cutting-edge product design.
The MX-System is a modular and space-efficient automation system comprising an aluminium baseplate and plug-and-play function modules. Notably, this assembly is waterproof and dustproof, allowing direct
mounting on machines without additional protective housing. The system’s versatility extends to its ability to integrate into various machines, both functionally and aesthetically, seamlessly. Beckhoff collaborated closely with the Adrian and Greiser design agency to achieve this, resulting in a visually appealing and ergonomic design that highlights the system’s unique capabilities. The MX-System’s compactness and continuity are evident, making installation and assembly remarkably simple, while each component retains its distinct character.
This innovative design concept also won over the Red Dot jury of around 50 international product design experts. Every year, this award honours industrially manufactured products with outstanding design quality: the products must be aesthetically pleasing, functional, smart, or innovative. The MX- System offers so many special features and benefits here that it was honoured with the Red Dot: Best of the Best Award for groundbreaking design, the highest award in the competition. According to the jury, only the best products in a category receive this award. Another renowned jury, consisting of 132 design experts from 20 countries, is equally convinced. They awarded the MX system the iF Design Award 2023.
