Innovative and at the same time economical:
The winners of the Engineering Newcomer 2021
The popular design competition is again promoting promising ideas from young talents this year.
A fanfare for the winners of the Engineering Newcomer 2021: At the norelem stand at the Motek trade show, the norelem ACADEMY, together with the sponsors CADENAS, TENADO, Zuken E3, MDESIGN and the Federal Working Group of Technical Colleges, selected the best design projects from students and pupils.

On 5 October, Martin Ahner, head of the norelem ACADEMY, selected the winners and drew a thoroughly positive conclusion: "As a project sponsor, the norelem ACADEMY is delighted with the many interesting entries and the well-attended award ceremony. We are eagerly awaiting the Engineering Newcomer 2022!"


This year, 35 teams from all over the world submitted their projects for the Engineering Newcomer. Participants come from countries such as Germany, Croatia, Italy, Macedonia, Turkey, Sweden, Great Britain, Canada, South Africa and even Nigeria. Since 2014, norelem has been looking for the best Engineering Newcomer, for which pupils and students can apply with their project or final thesis in the fields of engineering and development. A top-class jury selects the winners, who are rewarded with an attractive cash prize for the students and their educational institution.

First place went to Christian Rieger from the Munich Technical College: He developed a high-temperature 3D printer with tool changer. The jury was particularly impressed by the device's light and compact mechanics. "As a private person, it was not easy to get the necessary parts." says Christian Rieger, who also had to deal with pandemic-related delivery problems. "In this respect, norelem was a great help to me".

Second place went to the SmokeMatik automated pellet smoker developed by Jonas Zirlik, Michael Pröll, Patrick Körber, Thomas Hahn and Christian Roder from the Rudolf Diesel Technical College in Nuremberg. The smoker differs from conventional models by its size, octagonal shape and a 17-inch touchscreen. The five collaborators invested a total of 1,400 working hours in the project.

Third place went to Alexander Berkmann, Wilhelm Menke and Ilona Pollari also from the Munich Technical College: they designed a screwing-in device that is more ergonomic and faster than a hand-held device. The junior designers had worked so carefully during the development that they were finally able to realise the device exactly as envisaged in CAD.



"The Engineering Newcomer supports young engineers and introduces them to professional life," says Harald Achner, project manager at CADENAS. "That is the reason why we co-initiated the competition many years ago and continue to be a sponsor. André Kohut, Executive Partner at TENADO, has a similar view: "Every new generation of engineers is the engine for progress and innovation in the industry. As a future-oriented, innovative company, TENADO therefore places extraordinary value on promoting young talent as well as supporting schools." Joachim Frank, Managing Director of Zuken E3 GmbH, was impressed by the projects submitted: "In the end, it was a close race. I liked the practical relevance and how almost marketable new products were created here."
