A guaranteed show in Las Vegas, but this time it is the best of woodworking technology to take to the stage in this famous "stars and stripes" destination. The AWFS Trade Fair continues with excellent attendance at SCM's exclusive stand, firm in the knowledge of its continuous, outstanding expansion over the last two years, even on the North American market. The widest, most varied range of advanced solutions for the entire secondary wood processing sector is on display at the vast SCM exhibition area (stands 8200, 8207, 8214, 8600, 8607) where the general public can enjoy daily guided demonstrations of the Smart&Human Factory. The intelligent factory of the future unveils itself to visitors with its flexible, automated, modular cell system, easily reconfigurable and integrated by 7-axis anthropomorphic industrial robots, collaborative robots that work alongside the operator in complete safety, as well as unmanned shuttles. The cells contain state of the art SCM solutions for nesting, edgebanding, sanding and assembly, with new IoT Maestro digital software and services to simplify and optimise the processes for achieving previously inconceivable productivity levels. “You will never work alone” is the concept taking centre stage at the trade fair, demonstrating SCM's strong capability of acting as a partner to all the companies in the industry, both pre and post sales, and never leaving them on their own. Innovation at the Las Vegas trade fair also goes hand in hand with solidarity. SCM Nord America reiterates its endorsement of the charitable “Semper Fi Fund” organisation which provides support to members who are war veterans or survivors with critical irreversible physical injuries and health issues.
