SCM Group’s annual Technology Days Doors+Windows drew 1,200 door, window and wood manufacturers from all over the world, including Germany, UK, Belgium, Belarus, Portugal, Switzerland, Romania, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, Spain, France, Tunisia, and its home base Italy.

Among the group were U.S. woodworkers who visited the Rimini, Italy headquarters of SCM Group. The tour in late March allowed visitors to see not only the latest SCM Group technologies for door and window production, but to visit a number of significant wood manufacturing firms in Italy.

The event, which followed a similar tour at Rimini by SCM Group woodworking machinery dealers, included technical presentations, demonstrations in a new showroom and product concept presentations of SCM Group’s upcoming offerings for production of doors and windows, some of which will be on view at Ligna May 30-June 3.

Participants also visited SCM Group’s equipment factory site. SCM Group is distinctive in its manufacturing process: the production of its CNC wood routers and moulders is vertically integrated to the metal casting process.

One highlight of the factory open house was a panel discussion with executives from several key Italian companies in their field: Claudio Bussi of Bussi, Erio Cavazzoni from Cormo, Maurizio Campini from Fail, Giancarlo Cinci from MC Infissi and Gianfranco Danese from Danese. June W&WP will include reports on site visits.
