MILAN, ITALY — Scm Group, manufacturer and distributor of CNC machinery, took part in the “I Wood Like – Handmade & Digital Crafting” project held during the 2013 Milan Furniture Fair.

Developed in conjunction with FederlegnoArredo (branch of the Italian Manufacturer’s Association), Scm and Culturalegno (spreads the culture of wood and its traditional, artisan and artistic transformation), the I Wood Like initiative highlighted how wood is processed — from raw material to finished product. Examples of these wood products were on display as well as woodworking machinery, including Scm’s Tech Z5, a 5-axis CNC machining center suitable for the production of custom furniture and for panel machining.

At the I Wood Like booth, three craftsmen were on hand to demonstrate how to produce the wood products by hand and Scm technicians demonstrated how to make them with the machining center. The Tech Z5 was used to create the “Valuted Table,” a table/sculpture designed by London-based Bloomlab Architecture & Design.
