SCM happily announced that over 4000 “on-line” guests from 100 countries took part in the live streaming event from June 30 to July 2 with company experts on the latest technological new entries dedicated to the entire wood industry.
The show presented the latest 2020 technologies that should have “taken to the stage” at the various international trade fairs that have been postponed or cancelled since last February due to the Covid-19 health emergency. With the “SCM Live Show” event, SCM has decided to use innovative multimedia channels and tools to “open the doors” of its headquarters in Italy, via web, to thousands of customers from all over the world. SCM “brings” the new machines and industrial plants for the entire wood Machining industry, directly into customers own home: from the furniture industry to windows and doors and from the construction industry to artisan businesses. The “Corporate headquarters” in Rimini and the group’s other production sites around Italy were transformed into television studios to achieve the vast show schedule of live link-ups, webinars and talk shows.
The response from industry businesses was even better than expected.
SCM HIGH TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION
The numerous technological new entries displayed – integrated stand-alone cells and machines – satisfy the most varied production needs of secondary wood processing: from upgrades on the wide range of Machining Centres and panel drilling to those concerning machining centres for solid wood and timber construction: from proposals for flexible and j-shape industrial edgebanding, to angular sizing; from integrated surface treatment, with the latest in the ranges for pressing, sanding and finishing, to state-of-the-art solutions for packaging; from specific technologies for windows and doors and integrated lines for doors, to models for squaring-tenoning and profiling. As ever, with a focus on the most wide ranging, sought-after collection of joinery machines, with a new cell for sizing, drilling and edgebanding and the exclusive launch of a new app for artisan workers.
- The Smart & Human Factory for the furniture industry
SCM’s Smart&Human Factory was re-proposed with new additions to further increase productivity and flexibility, reduce waste and optimise the quality of the end product even on more sensitive markets. The new version – involves three modular, flexible automated cells integrated with articulated robots and interconnected by intelligent AMR unmanned shuttles.
- Integrated surface treatment
Three examples of the integrated process for exclusive, sought-after finishing solutions introduced at the “SCM Live Show”, demonstrating SCM’s capacity to make its mark on the market as a unique, complete partner in this sector. They are SCM’s flexible painting cell, painting panels with 3D effects and super-opaque finishing, as well as 3D lamination.
- Machining centres for furniture:
All-in-one “morbidelli m100” machining centre for drilling and routing evolves further with the new ultra-compact, reduced bulk solution, that makes the 5-axis machine the smallest on the market, in the “morbidelli p800” boring-milling and edgebanding centre, the combination between the MATIC work table and the innovative operator unit allows the most complex shaped pieces to be machined in just a few steps.
- Panel sizing
As well as the “gabbiani p80” included in the Smart&Human Factory, the event presented another new world preview: the “gabbiani a2” angular panel saw, designed to meet all the demands of panel machining, from mass production to “batch 1”, and particularly suitable for companies that are more conscious of machine cleaning and the working environment thanks to the innovative “Zero dust system” unit. The “new gabbiani a2 with 95, 115 and 125 blade projection, offers maximum performance in terms of productivity and cutting quality.
“SCM Live Show” was also an opportunity to celebrate the seventy year anniversary of the Edgebanding Business Unit. A long road featuring high technology and know-how, at the side of artisan businesses just as much as that of large industries, thanks to a wide range of models: from the continually evolving single-sided “stefani” and “olimpic” edgebanders, to the cells and plants fitted with rollers, panel return devices, automatic loading and unloading systems, assisted by robots and fitted with IoT sensors for an increasingly more immediate confirmation of the machine’s running, in line with the demands of Industry 4.0. These include the new generation of “stefani cell” and “stefani rocket” flexible industrial edgebanding systems for “batch 1” machining, modular systems available for machining with or without panel squaring, capable of adapting to current production demands and machining quality.
- Windows and doors:
The “accord” machining centres for the manufacturing of windows and doors was also highlighted during the “SCM Live Show”. The latest evolution in the range, “accord 42 fx”, attracts considerable interest both from window and door manufacturers as well as door and staircase manufacturers. With combined three and five axis double machining units with independent heads, it has been designed to best combine the need for high power and profiling with creativity and production flexibility needs.
- Doors: pressing, panel squaring and edgebanding
The SCM event closely examined the latest trends in the door industry and engineering solutions for an intelligent, integrated production. Solutions with different levels of automation and productivity up to a 1000 doors per shift were presented for pressing. These include the “sergiani las” continuous cycle automatic press for highly flexible intensive production of hollow core and veneered doors with a production capacity of 1 door every 20 seconds.
- LVT Flooring
Also taking centre stage on this front, the “celaschi” range of solutions for profiling and squaring for any kind of flooring, with an exceptional quality thanks to the high precision chains for which the “celaschi” range boasts an experience spanning more than 70 years.
- Machining centres for timber construction
Also in the limelight at the “SCM Live Show” was SCM machining centres’ technological innovation for the timber construction industry and their application in the construction of vast structures (bridges, covers etc.. multi-storey buildings and skyscrapers). Of particular note, the “oikos x” and “area” machining centres. The first model, a 6 axis model, is specific for machining structural beams, X-lam/CLT wall panels and large scale columns and is conceived with a view to maximising performance in terms of working volumes, dynamics and power.
- Machining centres for chairs, tables and furnishing accessories
First ever preview of the new numerically controlled “balestrini pico” tenoning-mortising machines, entirely redesigned to optimise safety, ergonomics and ease of use. These include: “balestrini pico fj”, the most complete machine on the market for producing complex joints such as Miter doors, face frames and French joints on doors and shutters, and the “balestrini pico om”, the small “all-purpose” machine that will show how easily joining operations on elements like chairs and tables can be achieved.
- Machining cell for artisans
This cell to create cabinets, whose strong point is its highly competitive price, offers stand-alone solutions specific for both custom designed productions and small series, for the evolved artisan; machines that guarantee excellent performance thanks to their significant technological content, to make even the most complex machining simple.
The new “SCM Thundercut” optimiser/sequencer, an App per iOS and Android OS, that allow to optimise the surface of the panel and guide the operator with the cutting sequences to be made.
DIGITAL SOFTWARE AND SERVICES
At the forefront of the “SCM Live Show” is also the “Digital Integrated Woodworking Process”, which demonstrates how software and digital services can assist the customer at each stage of the process in creating the piece of furniture: from the planning and preparation of the data to the machine production right up to production monitoring, maintenance and after-sales service.
For the data preparation stage in the machinery, the new programming software versions were presented for the Maestro cnc machining centres and Maestro ottimo CUT cutting optimisation.
In response to production planning needs, SCM presented an MES solution integrated into the SCM machines to assist customers with programming and managing the production flow.
