There are certainly a lot of innovative products in the running and in that slideshow, but the one that I see that has the option of reducing system use effort and pain is that "hand-tightened high pressure hydraulic coupling" from Gates. NOt with it being used in the intended mining applications, but for use in industrial areas where quick repairs and changeovers are often vital and always needing to be done quickly. Not as cool as some of the new processors and controllers, but definitely filling a need. Perhaps the Gates marketing people will consider telling their industrial customers about this product.

Very informative Lauren.  A very impressive lineup this year.  I would be hard put to vote for one over the other.  Excellent selection.  I am assuming all of these are production products and none are awaiting commercialization.  That actually makes the decision more difficult.   Very informative.
