The panels are loaded autonomously by an articulated robot. At the exit, the pickback bridge system guarantees the timely return of the machined panels. All this with a simple and intuitive control thanks to HMI Maestro active edge software.

morbidelli cx220: flexible drilling and dowelling cell with robot to produce all furniture elements more efficiently, even with workpieces that differ considerably from one another. The cell produces one panel per minute and over 400 panels per shift, with one operator, in 50 m2. It can be used exclusively with the robot for a continuous cycle production, or with partial operator supervision.

cut c200: a new solution for "batch 1" cardboard box packaging to produce up to 4 boxes per minute in different shapes and sizes. The ideal solution for optimising the use of cardboard based on the actual product size.


Also taking centre stage at Ligna is an integrated cell for flexible and customised production from the raw material to the finished piece of furniture, enhanced by the integration with the MES Software.


class px 350i: circular saw with mobile saw carriage with a up to 46° tilting blade that allows the maximum safety when working and perfect panel clamping: Advanced technology with the SCM Thundercut Optimizer/Sequencer, unique in driving the operator step by step when inserting the panel into the machine and in cutting.

me 40: automatic edge bander with the new eye-S compact control panel with Maestro active interface for optimal machine management. The control manages the new on/off system for the operating units and graphically represents all the machine functions.

startech cn plus: CNC drilling centre designed to easily and flexibly produce furniture parts without repositioning the tools and without a need for operator-intervention.


An integrated wide range with software, MES and digital services to assist the client at each stage of the production loop, increasing efficiency and connecting the office to the factory.


Data preparation
The updated CAD/CAM office programming software for Maestro cnc machining centres and the 3D Maestro pro view simulator for machining panels and solid wood will be on display at Ligna.

Planning, optimisation and production control

  • MES software: integration of SCM's machines with any customer's MES software to direct the programming, management and interconnection 4.0 of the entire production flow.
  • Maestro optiwise: optimiser for single-blade and angular beam saws to cut times, keep down costs and get the most out of the cut with as little waste as possible for each batch. And a user experience that is even simpler and optimal.
  • Maestro Power TMS: software to simplify and optimise tools management within SCM machining centres tool changers. It maximises the capacity of the tool changer according to the machining to be performed and allows more than 100 tools to be available at all times.

The HMI software and Maestro active line supervisors have also been updated for an even simpler, optimal control and interaction with all of SCM's machines.

Monitoring production, machine maintenance and after-sales assistance
The digital services enabled by the Maestro connect IoT platform are further enhanced to guarantee maximum performance in the machines and plants in sync with the constant support provided by SCM's technicians.
