SCM recorded outstanding success at the 2023 edition of the Ligna Trade Fair. Thousands of customers and business visitors from more than 100 countries, crowded into the Group's stand covering more than 3,000 m2 of exhibition space and more than fifty technological solutions between Hall 13 and Hall 16 (the latter being Superfici technologies for finishing).
There was an excellent return in terms of orders, negotiations and contacts on a vast range of product types and important opportunities arose in all the international markets, especially the DACH area, North and Eastern Europe, North and South America and South-East Asia.
SCM presented innovations in all the application fields for secondary word processing, both physically at the trade fair as well as digitally and interactively. As well as the extensive demo programme organised at the SCM Live Show, at the heart of the stand, there was no lack of contributions to Ligna.Recruiting and Ligna.Stage on the new trends for digital transformation and automation, timber construction and surface treatment.
Some of the new entries that elicited the greatest interest included automated and connected solutions developed for highly bespoke, versatile and sustainable production such as the Smart&Human Factory system for the furniture industry including new flexible cells with robot and integrated with unmanned AMR shuttles, and a new Smart&Human Factory model for joineries, an integrated cell for flexible and bespoke production from raw material to the finished piece of furniture, enhanced by its integration with an MES software.
Considerable interest at the fair for the latest integrated offer on software and services presented at the Digital Hub supporting each stage of the process.
Some of the most popular machines include the new entries for timber construction and prefabricated houses, especially oikos xs, a cnc machining centre offering operating speed and high configuration levels, dedicated to the production of straight beams, prefabricated walls, trusses, roofs and blockhouses.
Also on show were SCM Surface Technologies products for integrated surface treatment, starting with the new dmc system tc automatic sanding-calibrating machine with laser unit and Never ending power sources, developed to create three-dimensional marking on parquet, wood elements, MDF panels to be ennobled, fibre cement panels and solid surfaces. Solutions capable of satisfying any processing demand for exclusive, sophisticated, fashionable finishing effects, as well as the Superfici new entries on display in Hall 16.
Lastly, an extensive offer for artisan joinery where the new "Blade Off" safety system and the new starteck cn k 3-axis compact are highlighted.
