In the vast area of SCM group’s AWFS booth (1200 square metres equivalent to 12,600 square feet), Scm is presenting the excellence of its woodworking technology that can satisfy the needs of any manufacturer, from heavy duty industry to small craft workshops. Many of these technological breakthroughs can be used to process other materials too.
Industry 4.0 remains solid. More specifically, visitors can see the “Lean Robot Cell 4.0” at work. This system takes “Industry 4.0” concepts and puts them to practical use. The system is com-pletely automated, served by two anthropomorphic robots and requires only one operator. The “Lean Robot Cell 4.0” system produces components for wardrobes and consists of a Morbidelli M600 nesting machining centre and a Stefani edge bander, fitted with a panel return device and a drilling centre. The cell uses standard, high performance, easy-to-use machines, operates automatically when the job is launched and has been designed to integrate perfectly with the cus-tomer’s production management system. The result is a system that can perform all the various machining stages, from semi-machined panels to machined panels.
At the end of the process, the individual finished panels are also grouped into their different order lots by robots on special carriages, ready to be assembled in the CPC clamp.
Production speed: 500 wardrobe panels every shift.
“Lean Robot Cell 4.0” is a highly advanced project that Scm has entered for the “Visionary Challenge Award” competition as it clearly demonstrates the level of excellence reached by the Scm Engineering Division.
At the AWFS, Scm will be presenting thirty or so technological solutions to emphasize the strength and depth of its range. There are numerous new products, too, such as the new Mordibelli M 100 and M 200 machining centres that have been immensely successful worldwide since their release at the beginning of the year.
New, even more user-friendly software programs. At the fair there will also be a special focus on the complementary services and products that allow Scm customers to improve their return on investment. In Las Vegas, Smartech and ScmConnect will also be unveiled. These two innova-tive software programs seek to render the group’s IT production technology even more user-friendly. Given the importance of Industry 4.0, Scm experts will also be attending the semi-nars given on digital innovations in the woodworking industry.
“Technology is in our Dna,” comments Giuseppe Riva, the Scm North America Regional Man-ager, summarising the group’s reason for attending this important event perfectly. “Scm offers the best solutions in the woodworking industry sector and our systems offer state-of-the-art technology and Industry 4.0 concepts that allow us to implement this level of excellence. As the company’s motto says, “woodworking technology is in our DNA”. Our mission is to guarantee our customers competitive benefits and we are grateful and satisfied by the enthusiastic response we receive from our partners.”
In addition to exhibiting its production range at AWFS, the Scm Group will also have a second dis-play space dedicated to different surface treatments where the Superfici brand will be presenting its hi-tech solutions.
