ThruWave 3Dmm Wave Imaging Named Best New Product Innovation, 2021 MHI Innovation Awards

Seattle, WA – April 14, 2021 – ThruWave announces their 3D millimeter wave (mmWave) Imaging was named Best New Product Innovation 2021 from the Material Handling Institute as part of their annual MHI  Innovation Awards.  

ThruWave is pioneering 3D mmWave imaging for industry with a groundbreaking new sensing technology that  allows their customers to detect objects inside closed packages. ThruWave applies millimeter wave technology  to “see” through plastic, cardboard, packaging material and even walls at high speeds.  

“We entered ThruWave’s solution into the awards knowing that we have something truly unique and  groundbreaking. It is not a common occurrence these days for new sensing technology to be developed and  commercialized,” explains Pieter Krynauw, CEO of ThruWave. “We are providing, for the first time ever, a  human-safe and cost-efficient way for manufacturers, material handling and logistics operators to see inside of  sealed containers that can allow them to drive down operational cost, improve safety AND improve quality.” 

ThruWave’s new 3D mmWave sensing technology can solve problems that previously could not be solved  without manual human intervention or through the usage of expensive and potentially health hazardous x-ray  equipment, making it either impractical or cost prohibitive in many supply chain applications. In some cases  cameras are deployed today, but current camera technology is limited by only being able to see the surface of  packages (not inside OR behind them) and are greatly exposed in dusty and low/no light conditions.  

“Our new sensing and imaging solution provides transformative technology to identify and reduce operational  cost and carbon footprint, improve quality control, safety and security as well as increase efficiency of capital  investments in automation,” explains Pieter Krynauw, CEO of ThruWave. “ThruWave is bringing to the table an  un-matched solution that will change sensing in the supply chain forever.” 

ThruWave’s 3D mmWave imaging solution is an easy and quick retrofit to existing conveyors or materials  handling systems and can operate as a standalone system or a fully integrated solution exchanging data with  WMS’s, WES’s and/or Control Systems. 

ThruWave is introducing their 3D mmWave imaging solution for material handling, manufacturing, logistics and  supply chain during ProMatDX including live sessions including a product demonstration and an educational  seminar titled, “Make Invisible Waste Visible: Optimize Shipping and Storage Costs with Real-Time 3D  Imaging”. Visitors to can live-chat in sessions during April 12-16, with on-demand viewing  access starting on April 19.

About ThruWave  

Based in Seattle, Washington, ThruWave makes the invisible visible with human-safe3D millimeter wave  imaging. Our groundbreaking millimeter wave imaging technology is the only high-throughput, human-safe  approach for seeing through opaque materials like corrugated boxes and plastic totes to automatically  dimension, count, and detect anomalies on the items inside. ThruWave sensors and software analytics are an  easy retrofit for existing conveyor and robotic material handling systems, enabling supply chain and logistics  customers to measure and improve their inbound and outbound item handling.
