QM has recently purchased the new packaging line from CPC - a wellknown brand of Scm Group – to guarantee excellent productivity whilst minimising the operator’s interventions.
The relationship between QM (Beijing) (www. qumei.com) and SCM Group is based on mutual esteem built up over the years. The widest range of top class Italian technology for panel machining has allowed the Chinese company (known for its ability to offer select products with a modern design) to acquire an enviable position and image amongst Chinese furniture-making companies.
QM (Qumei Furniture) is one of China’s foremost furniture manufacturers, creator of a winning formula that combines design (one of the first Chinese brands to establish a partnership with international designers), ground-breaking production plants (currently 6 production poles for a total area of 800,000 sq.m), and over 600 exclusive retail outlets.
QM’s choice of SCM Group technology is an all-round one: Gabbiani panel saws, Stefani edgebanding machines, Morbidelli and SCM processing centres for boring/milling, and DMC sanding machines.
It’s the latest purchase though – an automatic CPC line for packing the panels in boxes - that clearly indicates the notable request for all-round automation from the Chinese market. Let’s take a look at all the details.
The main advantages of the CPC packaging solution:
