LIGNA 2017 will open with a new space concept. This means that, for the first time, the Weinig Group will be presenting its complete range for solid wood and panel processing in Hall 27. The 4000 m2 stand will provide customers with a unique offering for small business and industry under the motto “THINK WEINIG”. The solid wood processing area will present the product range from the planing and profiling, cutting and optimization, jointing technology and window & furniture production segments. W 4.0 Digital, project business and alternative materials will all be under the spotlight.

Holz-Her will be exhibiting solutions for CNC processing, panel splitting and edge banding on the Weinig Group stand as well as presenting panel storage systems.

Industry 4.0 is the key megatrend in the wood industry. However, as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Gregor Baumbusch underlines: “Digitization for its own sake does not give you a competitive advantage. Our solutions are always targeted towards customer benefits.” Efficient and resource-saving planning and production as well as intelligent maintenance run like a common thread through Weinig’s networked production solutions, also known as W 4.0 Digital.

High-tech solutions place high demands on operating personnel. If businesses are to remain fully operational at a time when qualified personnel remain scarce, operation of complex production systems must be kept as simple as possible. OptiCom/Plus software, used in all machines and systems from the product unit Cutting, provides a uniform user interface.

02Monitoring sensors prevent collisions in the machine and other severe damage.

The key to success is digital order preparation on the PC. In Moulder Master, Weinig offers a software package for the perfectly organized working environment.

Today, modern production systems must be capable of creating single-item batches and industrial series production equally profitably. At the same time, processes and working methods industry and small business are merging. Consequently, operations require variable, modular systems based upon leading-edge technology.

At LIGNA, the Weinig Group will be presenting production cells of wide-ranging complexities for a broad spectrum of demands under our unique selling proposition “Everything from a single source”.  “Weinig offers more” is not merely a slogan. It is an unconditional promise when it comes to quality, reliability, value creation and consultancy services. Weinig specialists will be on hand for customers throughout all four days of the trade fair, answering any questions covering the Pre-owned Machines, Service and Finance segments.
