The Krško Posavje Chamber of Commerce awarded the best innovations of the Posavje region for the year 2021. The event took place in the Rajhenburg castle in Brestanica on Monday, September 20, 2021. The seven-member commission received 11 innovation applications. Four gold, three silver and two bronze awards were given. According to the Posavje Regional Chamber, which operates within the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, gold and award-winning companies will compete for awards at the national level, including Kovis with a one-piece railway brake disc for the passenger transport.
The one-piece FLEX brake disc introduces a revolutionary carrier design that enables the brake disc to improve its main features. Thanks to the new carrier, the brake disc is suitable for higher speeds. Due to the combination of high thermal efficiency and low air resistance, it is optimally powerful and also impresses with lower weight and longer durability of the braking surfaces.
Uroš Grivc, David Deržič, Bogdan Blažinč and Ivan Smolej signed the innovation “One-piece railway brake disc for passenger transport”.
The recognition reflects the hard work and experience of the entire team and shows that good ideas lead to positive and innovative solutions.
