More than 2,500 visitors from all over Europe, Asia, and North and South America, crowded the Scm Group headquarters in Rimini from 28 to 30 September to open the new Technology Center dedicated to the entire woodworking industry.
This new space has been enlarged to 4,000 square metres and presents technological and digital innovations for every machining requirement in the furniture industry, windows and doors production, timber construction and bespoke joinery.
The Technology Center was created as part of a redevelopment plan involving an additional 11,000 square metres of the entire Rimini industrial site.
Other investments, totalling an increase of 20,000 square metres, were made to increase production efficiency at the Scm sites in Monza, Piacenza and Siena, as well as at the Villa Verucchio site of the controlled company Hiteco, which specialises in electromechanical components.
The Grand Opening was an opportunity to discover the latest solutions developed by the Group for flexible, sustainable and optimised integrated processes.
Great interest was shown in automation systems that come to the aid of companies in the sector, which are increasingly forced to deal with a shortage of qualified technicians. Many visitors also wanted to discover new software and digital services: in the Technology Center's Digital Control Room, in particular, they were able to find out how Industrial IoT and machine learning are revolutionising the customer care field: here, in fact, data from machines connected worldwide to Scm's IoT platform are analysed and processed with the help of the most advanced digital technologies and the expertise of Scm's Service team to provide customers with customised assistance and advisory services of a proactive and predictive nature, to guarantee operational continuity.
The event was preceded by two days of sharing all the latest Scm news with the entire international sales network, between the Rimini Headquarters and Campus, the Scm Group's training centre.
