High technology and innovation for the timber construction industry: SCM at the International Mass Timber Conference

Mar 14, 2019

The new SCM cnc machining center for timber construction Oikos X continues its international tour through the most important worldwide events dedicated to timber construction. The leader for secondary woodworking technologies will attend the International Mass Timber Conference, to take place from 19 to 21 March in Portland in order to examine the new face of mass timber construction.

With 22 countries represented and nearly 1,200 attendees registered so far, the conference will feature an exhibition hall with over 60 international companies and a presentation lineup of over 70 experts, some from countries with a longer history of using mass timber products in urban construction.

Solidly backed by the experience it has matured over ten years in this specific sector, SCM will provide its contribution. An in-depth knowledge of this industry’s demands which, together with intense R&D work and solidity of a brand like SCM, has led to state-of-the-art technological solutions, including Oikos X, the new CNC machining centre for manufacturing structural beams, X-lam/CLT wall panels, and insulating panels. During the event, Tommaso Martini, Business Unit Manager of cnc machining centers for timber construction, Luciano Tagliaferri, Product Area Manager, and the SCM North America team will outline the strong points of Oikos X; starting from the 6-axis machining head unit that allows any machining operation on all sides of the component with no rotation or repositioning required and in reduced space, achieving high standards of precision and productivity.

Hi-tech and “smart”, the new Oikos X machining centre is in perfect line with the needs of the 4.0 factory: it is further enhanced by Maestro beam&wall software whose strong point is its total integration with the most common CAD systems in the sector and its new multi-function, multi-touch eye-M operator panel, which facilitates daily operations significantly. Oikos x also offers an exclusive video surveillance system which allows the operator to control in real time the entire machining process. Furthermore, it can be integrated with Maestro smartech glasses that revolutionize after-sales assistance, allowing the customer, through augmented reality technology, to always have an expert on his side in every corner of the globe.
