20 years of the HOMAG Treff connecting...25-28 September 2012.
Looking back over 20 years of the HOMAG Treff: 35,000 visitors from 70 countries and innovations which shape our industry. Yesterday, today, and into the future.
At the 20th Treff for the woodworking industry, this year visitors may look forward to an unprecedented array of smart solutions for the production of furniture, windows, floors, staircases and doors. In an area of over 10,000 sqm., HOMAG will be showcasing just how the company has linked innovation with fascination over its 50 year history.
There has never been such a wide array of large-scale plants live on show at a HOMAG Treff. Smart batch size 1 solutions from the entry-level machine to the high-end plant attract just as much interest as flexible concepts for efficient series production. 20 customer orders in the making will be in action to demonstrate the broad-based expertise of HOMAG's plant specialists and the trust placed in them by customers.
Batch size 1 production: The whole range
An office furniture manufacturer from Southern Europe places its trust implicitly in the laserTec process for its batch size 1 production both for through-feed and 5-axis stationary technology.
Another customer in the furniture manufacturing sector is all about high-speed production: Without compromising its extreme standard of quality, it clocks up feed rates of 30 meters, fast changeover in a 400 gap and 20 cycles a minute. For edge processing, this plant is also fitted with laserTec and the FK31 powerTrim profile trimming unit. With these benefits, this solution provides extreme output while retaining outstanding flexibility.
Using a single-sided sizing machine, an edge bander with handling system and a gantry processing center with edge banding unit and 5-axis spindle, a German equipment producer will be providing its customers with bespoke trade fair stand and shop-fitting solutions in the future. For this producer, efficiency and maximum processing scope are the key to its credentials as a one-stop high-tech supplier of display concepts using everything from wood through aluminum to plastic.
Series production: 70-80 % higher output
With a 6-sided line, a furniture manufacturer from Poland aims to achieve maximum output in sizing and edge banding. Compared to a classical production line, the 6-sided line delivers around 7080% higher output.
The reacTec laminating plant delivers 25 % higher output for the furniture manufacturer Swedwood China for a conventional laminating plant. The completeLine production concept is able to laminate surfaces and wrap continuous work-pieces simultaneously. This producer favors the off-line method which entails gluing and winding the decor foil on a separate pre-coating machine. Under the influence of pressure and temperature, the glue layer is then reactivated in the completeLine production plant. The result: Optimum plant availability coupled with maximum flexibility and economy.
Panel sizing and profiling
The wide variety of products that can be manufactured in throughfeed is demonstrated by the following examples:
A production plant for three-layer parquet with click profile for high-speed flooring production.
Complete factory equipment for the processing of door leaves from panel sizing to the processing of locks and hinges.
A plant for panel sizing and profiling of wood fiber insulating panels up to 300 mm in thickness as part of an overall project by a wood material manufacturer.
Customers back complete concepts also with CNC processing
The fact that a large number of customers decide in favor of integral solutions from the HOMAG Group is clearly evident, also in the field of stationary technology. Many customers opt to supplement their existing production lines with processing centers from HOMAG. One renowned manufacturer of kitchen worktops, for instance, intends to start using a HOMAG BOF 512, while a highly efficient BOF 322 production cell with TBA automation solution will soon be operational for a customer in the challenging shop-fitting and interior fittings sector. This will not only help to cut staffing costs but also extend the utilization period by producing during break times and extended shifts.
