Koenig Wins Industry Award

The Bakery Machine Manufacturer From Graz Wins The Race For The Prestigious "iba AWARD"

The iba trade fair in Munich was a success story: 1,073 exhibitors from 46 countries presented their innovations and highlights. A total of 57,000 visitors from 150 countries streamed through the halls during these five days. Austrian bakery machine manufacturer König was also very satisfied with the trade fair. The Graz-based company won the highly competitive "iba Award" in the "Robotics" category at iba, the world's leading trade fair for the bakery industry.


At the end of October, König takes part in the iba trade fair in Munich, the world's leading trade fair for the bakery industry. There, the traditional Graz-based company wins the iba Award in Munich, the highest accolade in the bakery industry.

At the trade fair, König was recognized for its AI-controlled iSCORE bread cutting system. An international jury of experts came to the conclusion that this world first from the Styrian company perfectly combines both tradition and innovation, especially thanks to its intuitive and fast operation.

Before the baking process, pieces of bread and pastries are traditionally cut in order to achieve an attractive and even decoration. Until now, this process was usually carried out manually, a labor-intensive process with sometimes high quality fluctuations. With König's automated cutting process, bakeries can save valuable resources such as personnel, time and dough.

König's iSCORE scans each individual baked item and uses AI to calculate the perfect cuts. This also makes it possible to individualize bread, which is a significant competitive advantage, especially today in an increasingly competitive market. iSCORE works with 3 different cutting systems on a robot arm that can make up to 12,000 cuts per hour, adapted to each individual baked item. In addition, every bakery can easily and intuitively customize bread with this system.

The trade fair in Munich was a complete success for our company with visitors from all over the world and an extraordinarily high level of interest in high-quality bakery technology. Winning the iba Award crowns our efforts and motivates our entire team. This is yet another sign that König is one of the leading suppliers of bakery technology.
