World leader in technologies for secondary wood processing, SCM, is taking part in the 12th edition of India Wood (BIEC, BENGALURU, from 2 to 6 June 2022) with a wide, state-of-the-art selection of solutions ready to meet any machining need, from panel to solid wood.
Boosted by its continuous and significant growth right across India, with a turnover that has more than doubled in the last year alone, SCM offers both small craftsmen and large companies an extensive and unparalleled range at international level.
The industry professionals will be able to see for themselves by visiting SCM's stand (H4J313/ J312): as well as top of the range, uniquely performing joinery machines for woodworking, some of the best-loved automatic machines for craftsmen and industry will also go on display.
With a particular interest for machining solid wood will be the BALESTRINI PICO OM, tenoner-mortiser and profile drilling, a compact "all-purpose" machine that makes machining joints extremely easy on chair parts and table elements.
For panel machining, it is the SCM edge banding machine range that makes its mark, from the compact, versatile Stefani Olympic range to the most advanced STEFANI KD, ideal for those looking to obtain a perfect line of glue thanks to the "SGP" tank that allows for the use of EVA and PUR glue. There is also space for solutions to treat surfaces with the highly versatile SERGIANI GS120 press, and the DMC SD70 wild belt sander, ideal for calibrating MDF, plywood and solid wood as well as sanding veneered panels and finishing painted surfaces. We will demonstrate GABBIANI P80 beam saw cutting machine with advance options
At India Wood, SCM will also bring its exclusive "All-in-one" 5-axis technology with the MORBIDELLI M100 drilling-routing CNC machining centre, capable of satisfying the most far ranging demands for machining different materials used for furniture to the high-efficiency production of doors, as well as with MORBIDELLI CX100 for fast drilling solutions with RO.AX technology drilling head.
SCM's investments in the Indian market
In India, as with the whole area including Bangladesh, Nepal & Bhutan, SCM has made a strategic investment to provide local businesses in the woodworking industry with an even more extensive, all-round assistance. This is thanks to the specific warehouses and to the local experts and technical and sales staff. As Giovanni Masino, Regional Manager SCM India and Middle East, and Balkar Singh, Area Manager & Key Account Manager India explain, the aim is to provide “an even more direct, widespread assistance at sales and services level to all the businesses in the sector, from craftsmen to large industries and at every stage of the relationship with the client, from pre to after-sales”.
The SCM’s investments continue to further strengthen the sales and after sales services with more professional sales managers, sales admins and service engineers directly appointed by the Italian Group, ready to support customers at each stage of the technologies’ life cycle.
Despite the ongoing uncertainties linked to the pandemic and the problem of a lack of raw materials, the Indian market is also witnessing a significant demand for machinery and systems and a strong desire to modernise factories to make them more efficient and digital.
The woodworking industry in this market maintains its growth rate and SCM continues to be a benchmark partner for this market thanks, in part, to its ability to offer a wide choice of technological solutions that are unique at international level and therefore satisfy the needs of the entire industry: from the artisan to industry, from panel to solid wood machining, from furniture to windows and doors.
The outlook for 2022 is even more positive and the Indian market will continue to offer excellent opportunities to the manufacturers of industrial machines for woodworking.
It is a highly dynamic market focusing on a quality product, even better finishing’s, and one that can compete with European standards. As a result, there is a growing desire for technological solutions that not only increase productivity but allow you to obtain precise and high-quality machining work.
Demands that SCM manages to satisfy in full with its extensive range of products and services: from the wide range of machines for woodworking to the automatic entry level solutions for beam saw, edge banding, numeric control machining centres for drilling-routing, an integrated offer of surface treatment solutions (panel pressing and veneering, sanding and finishing), right up to the integrated lines for the industrial production of furniture, windows and doors and flooring.
There is also a growing focus on digitalisation and IoT, requisites that SCM meets with its vast range of digital software and services to allow wood operators to achieve a tangible optimisation of assistance and maintenance activities, even remotely.
Giovanni Masino and Balkar Singh add: “Our strength lies in our ability to assist customers with their business and optimise their production processes. We are further strengthening our sales network on the Indian market by focusing on a more widespread presence. This is thanks to a firmly rooted and even more extensive network of dealers in these areas but also with the help of an SCM sales team working directly in situ and capable of transmitting a know-how with 70 years of experience in the industry behind it to the local woodworking businesses, something only SCM can boast at global level".
