"Holzbau Forum", the most important world event dedicated to timber construction, is about to open in Innsbruck, in Austria, where the 25th edition of the International Timber Construction Forum will be held from 4 to 6 December.
SCM will take part in the event together with the key players in the production chain (architects and designers, technology suppliers and builders) presenting state-of-the-art technological solutions for wood joinery.
For a fast growing industry in Europe and the rest of the world, both in the sector's more soundly established markets as well as emerging ones, the use of innovative technological solutions nowadays is increasingly more decisive, in line with market demands.
As the Business Unit Manager of the SCM machining centres for timber construction, Tommaso Martini points out, "this is where SCM's contribution slots in, as it aims to be a competent partner for all the professionals in the industry who, for various reasons, require technology to machine joinery elements and who are looking for a new and different approach to the one they have encountered so far". An exclusive approach: SCM is providing its decades of experience in the development and production of highly evolved, flexible machining centres to produce components for timber constructions, thus creating a new standard for the sector.
The SCM team will be at visitors' disposal during the Forum at stand DG011 to highlight the exclusive strong points of Oikos x, the new 6-axis machining centre, specifically designed to machine structural beams, X-lam/CLT wall panels and insulation panels, the result of careful research and development aimed at offering the industry an ever more technological, performing response.
Oikos x was designed with a view to maximising performance in terms of dimensions, dynamics and power.
Fitted with a 13kW standard electrospindle (optional 24 kW), the machining centre machines beams and panels with a maximum section of 1,250x300 mm and maximum length of 19,000 mm, with an end weight of 4,000 kg.
The exact symmetry of the new 6-axis machining head is designed for any kind of machining to be carried out on every side of a piece, from a single position and in limited space. The excellent ability of the self-centring grippers and pressure rollers to lock the workpiece prevents sliding at the machining stage.
The new machining centre is in perfect harmony with the needs of the 4.0 factory; the Maestro beam&wall software ensures complete integration with the most commonly used CAD systems in the industry; the multi-function, multi-touch eye-M operator panel makes every day work much easier; the video-surveillance system means the entire process can be monitored in real time and integrated with Maestro smartech glasses which place an SCM expert at the client's side, at any time, no matter where they are in the world, thanks to augmented reality technology.
