Weinig, Hall 12, stand B48 - F48
The name Weinig stands for comprehensive expertise in solid wood processing. In Hanover the full-range supplier will be exhibiting innovative technology for industry and artisan trades on over 300 sqm. Divided into the four product areas Pre-cutting, Profiling, End profiling and Windows, flexible machines and systems "made in Germany" will demonstrate maximum wood yield. Innovations range from separating, cutting, scanning, optimisation, finger-jointing and gluing through planing and profiling to window production and automation. The leading Weinig technologies will be demonstrated in detail in an innovation forum. The "Product Pavilion" will emphasis the unique position of Weinig in the global market with practical examples of customised solutions with the Ligna motto "Making more out of wood".

Weinig core competence: Planing and profiling
With its range of moulders, Weinig covers the whole performance spectrum. Especially innovative, application-oriented solutions will be at the forefront at Ligna 2011. A Powermat 2000 PP for producing MDF panels in working widths up to 600 mm is just one of the exhibits. This machine is able to control several processes over large areas in a single run. In addition a Powermat 500 for the production of window edges and a Hydromat 450 for working large widths for sizes 450 x 300 mm will also be on display. The heavy Hydromat 3500 for high-speed planing represents the upper performance range. The proven Powermat series focuses on implementation of modern surface structures with individual designs with optimum product quality.

Cube: reinventing planing
The Cube continues the long series of great Weinig innovations in planing sys-tems. The compact, user-friendly machine is designed primarily for businesses which use traditional methods to plane on four sides. Time-consuming adjustments are a thing of the past with the Cube, the high risk of errors has been eliminated. The intelligent "moulder preview" laser process guarantees maximum wood yield. Four-sided processing in a single run ensures perfect right angles, true dimensions and parallel lines. The fast, highly practical Cube will pay for itself in a very short space of time. In suction mode energy savings of up to 60 % can be achieved.

New Weinig systems for artisan trades
In addition to the Cube, at Hanover Weinig will be exhibiting a range of other attractive machines for craftsmen working in wood. The new FlexiRip Compact from the RaimannLine stands out, currently the most flexible cross-cutting saw for artisan businesses in the market and the new UniRip for ultimate accurate, fast cutting with the QuickFix saw shaft and the Safety Plus-System for maxi-mum operator safety Weinig is exhibiting the new VarioRip 310, the successor to the proven multi-blade and optimised circular saw ProfiRip 310. The double-sided prism guide system ensures chain guides without play, resulting in excellent cutting results.

Wood optimisation with WEINIG: Making more out of wood
Maximum wood yield is the decisive factor in determining the profitability of a business. Weinig has long been setting new standards in this field with its inno-vative optimisation solutions in the DimterLine. The latest version of the fastest cross-cut saw in the world, the OptiCut 450 Quantum II, offers another 15 % more performance. It can be viewed as a complete system at Hanover which is capable of cutting and optimising up to 100 running metres wood/min. From destacking the raw material to restacking the cut lengths, the whole process is fully automatic. A high-performance scanner CombiScan +200C with a maxi-mum scan speed of 240 m/min is integrated in the unit.

Weinig will demonstrate its expertise in detection of errors and quality sorting with the CombiScan + 200 R for double-sided scanning via laser and colour camera and the EScan for certified rigidity measurements. The new gluing press ProfiPress PPL II 2500 is certain to generate great interest in the "Optimisation" sector.. This universal press reduces grinding to a minimum. Multi-track operation is still possible with a difference in width of 150 mm. This means the unit can achieve especially high performance.

Finger-jointing systems for all needs
Finger-jointing allows you to make longer lengths from short parts with high stability and consistently high quality. Wood improvement through finger-jointing is therefore becoming more and more interesting and has excellent prospects due to a shortage of resources. The Weinig GreconLine offers a wide range of finger-jointing units for all performance classes. The CombiPact will be shown at Hanover. Its outstanding feature is the newly developed drive technology which raises this unit to the performance level of series which previously were superior. The CombiPact is designed flexibly for horizontal and vertical operation. Pre-scorers ensure especially high quality of finished goods.

Weinig Conturex: window production of the future
The successful Conturex profiling centre is known for its fully automatic, cost-effective production of single parts. Workpieces are clamped in position for complete processing.
