Two innovative small businesses based in the City of Salisbury have been recognised for their development of innovative products at several recent awards.
The iAwards honours companies at the cutting edge of technology innovation and recognises the achievements of home-grown Australian innovators.
XPed was recognised for its ADRC Platform, a revolutionary technology that allows anyone using their smartphone to connect, monitor and control electronic devices and appliances found in our everyday environment. ADRC has the capability to standardise the way we interact with the thousands of devices and appliances around us.
Salisbury South firm, K-Tig, won the Innovator Award at the DTC Defence Industry Awards.
The awards, organised annually by the Defence Teaming Centre, are the peak industry event and play a critical role in identifying and acknowledging the contribution of leading companies within the defence community.
K-TIG has developed an ultra-high-speed, full penetration welding technology that welds up to 100 times faster than conventional welding in materials up to 16mm in thickness – in one pass.
“It’s tremendous to be acknowledged by the defence industry as a leading innovator” said Belinda Latz, K-TIG Operations Manager who accepted the award. “Innovation is literally at the core of what we do, and this award comes at a very exciting time in the development of our company and technology”.
