With its innovative MesoFocus X-ray technology, Comet takes the lead in the prestigious Fribourg Innovation Award, winning first place in the category “company awards”. The award ceremony took place in a festive setting on the evening of November 9, 2022.
Innovation for an increasingly mobile, connected world
The world is more mobile and connected than ever before - thanks in part to increasingly powerful and durable batteries. For batteries to be safe, they need to be tested. That's where Comet's MesoFocus comes in. Through the development of the MesoFocus X-ray tube, Comet enables battery manufacturers to visualize even the finest details in batteries when inspecting them on production lines, and to detect potential defects at an early stage. Even more, this inspection can now be performed with unprecedented accuracy, speed and practicality.
"Comet made it to the podium because it offers a practical answer to an extremely current and relevant problem" explains Jerry Krattiger, Managing Director of the Fribourg Development Agency, the decision of the 13-member jury.
"The Innovation Award fills the entire Comet team with pride and gratitude. The award impressively demonstrates that with its technologies Comet is making an important contribution to today's connected, mobile world", said Stephan Haferl, CEO of Comet Group.
"Behind the MesoFocus innovation is outstanding teamwork, but also a stable, innovation-promoting environment, which we appreciate here in the canton of Fribourg," said Michael Berger, President X-Ray Modules. “The award confirms we are doing the right things and drives us to achieve even more in the future.”
