MONTREAL– Biesse Canada hosted a what it says was a highly successful Industry 4.0 seminar October 4 at Biesse Factory in Montreal, in partnership with software developer Web-Cab.
More than 40 people from 22 companies experienced the newest production/assembly optimization technologies shown there.
“Biesse Canada is excited to see a significant level of interest in Industry 4.0 technology,” Biesse Canada Vice President of Sales Matt Fleming said. “No longer is 4.0 a term or option for large companies. It can now be integrated with small to medium companies with machinery that is 4.0 ready."
In collaboration with Web-Cab, Biesse showed real-time connection of work in progress moving from a point-to-point Rover B CNC to an Elix advanced horizontal drill, glue and dowel insertion machine, to a Stream A edgebander, to an entry-level Klever CNC.
“All data is logged and utilized to track the parts from raw material to the outbound finished product," Fleming said. "Our customers were able to see and touch this integrated solution and realize what this can do for their production.” 
 
Biesse Canada and Web-Cab are both exhibiting at WMS 2017, the Woodworking Machinery & Supplies Expo running November 2-4 at the International Centre near Toronto.
