The John Munck Award is presented each year to a product developer or designer, or a team, for outstanding contributions to the overall quality of an Atlas Copco product.
John Munck Award for technical innovation 2016
The John Munck Award for technical innovations was given to a team of six people at Atlas Copco’s Vacuum Solutions division: Andries Desiron, Mark S. Taylor, Glenn Vinck, Joeri Coeckelbergs, Jens Boeckx and Werner De Bruyn. The team developed a rotary screw vacuum pump (GHS VSD+), which incorporates much of the celebrated variable speed drive compressor technology. The quiet, intelligent and highly efficient pump quickly gained popularity with customers.
