Ligna 2013 is May 6-10 in Hannover, Germany. HANNOVER, GERMANY - For large-scale production of furniture and windows, Scm Group says it will launch new integrated work cell machining centers at Ligna 2013 next month. 

For the first time, the Scm Group will present a number of what it calls "true factories,” including a yet-to-be-named work cell dedicated to the production of window frames and solid wood machining, able to work without supervision.

Highly automated for batch production, it is also able to manage special pieces, custom-shaped window frames, and one-off pieces, says Scm.  

Three work cells to be presented by Scm Group's Furniture division, designed for a market seeking more integrated production systems include the cutting cell  by Gabbiani, the boring cell by Morbidelli and the Easy Order Az by Stefani, a  smart, one-batch edgebanding cell which checks a thousands times per second all the operations being carried out.

Scm's systems from its home-building related systems will include new versions of the Accord work center series for window frames and solid wood, in addition to the Dogma angular work center and the Superset moulder.

In its custom woodworking lines, Scm Group will show new developments on its L'Invincibile line, at Ligna in Hall 11, where as many as 28 machines, including completely new solutions or solutions with new aggregates, will be on display. 


Scm Group will show the Olimpic K 660 edgebanding machines; the TI 145 Ep Class electronic spindle moulder with programmer and tilting shaft; and the new Scm Tech Z1 pro space boring and milling work center.
