Success in silver 2022!


Awarded: defortec wins the Focus Open design award 2022 in vilver


We are pleased about the Focus Open 2022. Defortec continues the long series of awards also in 2022.

The new VOITH InfibraFiner impressed the jury with its design, high level of innovation and clear added value for customers.


Vision becomes reality – BlueLine InfibraFiner


Clear lines combined with numerous technical advantages - the new VOITH InfibraFiner combines optimal user guidance with a new design.

The specially developed SmartLight on the front of the InfibraFiner is not only an eye-catcher, but also provides information about the machine status, performance and maintenance condition at any time via its light signals. Significantly simplified and time-saving maintenance by the operating personnel is the result of the innovative SmartLight.

Thanks to the compact design and the calm language of form by means of large clean surfaces, the InfibraFiner clearly stands out from its highly complex surroundings.


Efficient und user-oriented

Compared to conventional refiners, the award-winning InfibraFiner has a significantly higher capacity and is designed to be extremely energy-saving.

The new design combines the modern appearance with numerous technological advantages, which enable a significantly more constant and energy-optimized refining process.


With the aid of three colored illuminated segments, the SmartLight provides information on the machine status, performance and current maintenance status of the refiner at any time and at a glance.

For this purpose, numerous parameters such as temperature, pressure or the vibration profile are recorded and evaluated.


Another focus of the development team was on very high occupational safety and particularly user-friendly maintenance by means of a compact design. The smooth outer surfaces allow easy cleaning. All electronic components and cabling are well protected and integrated into the machine in the control cabinet specially designed for the InfibraFiner.


"We have developed a completely new refiner concept that clearly stands out both in terms of design and performance values. During development, we pursued the highest quality standards. In line with our "Papermaking Vision" design study, the design focused on an appealing appearance, optimized user interfaces and the implementation of a "Clean Design". We are therefore very pleased to have won the Focus Open International Design Award Baden-Württemberg together with the design agency defortec."
