HANNOVER, GERMANY —

“Making more out of wood: Innovation, Efficiency, Vision,” is the theme for the 2011 Ligna Hannover Fair, the largest woodworking event in the world. The show will take place May 30-June 3 at the Hannover Fairgrounds.

Exhibits at Ligna will cover the entire value chain, from coating materials through to production systems, auxiliary materials and services. Featured at the show will be a new production system that enables the seamless application of veneers to upper surfaces and long edges in a single step. The system can go from untreated particleboard to a fully laminated panel in a single run, reducing production times and facilitating “on the fly” veneer changeovers.

Seamless edgebanding is also big and specialists in this field will be on hand to demonstrate glueless and energy-efficient laser and plasma technology-based systems for creating perfect, seamless edges.
