Homag trendsetting technology whether in windows or edges
No gain without pain has been the motto adopted by
Homag over recent months: every one of the company’s
divisions has been working at full steam on a range of
innovations, new developments and technical highlights.
Those aspiring to be abreast of the latest trends in batch
size one throughfeed technology will welcome the new
K350 series, designed primarily for application at the entry
level. In the field of stationary technology, Homag will be
unveiling the powerProfiler BMB 900 for high-performance
processing in the field of window and facade construction.
In yet another tour de force, Homag is also set to
impress Ligna visitors with a new automated cell for complete
Throughfeed Technology K 350 series:
entry into a whole new world of flexible production
One of the highlights at this year’s Ligna will be the K350
series, designed to open up flexible production right down to
batch size one, primarily with the entry level users in mind.
An outstanding work-piece transport system engineered for
optimum running noise and work-piece guidance ensures
the best possible standard of processing quality. The series
combines all the important features of the high-tech machine
series and is ideally suited as stepping stone into the
world of flexible production. Just like its bigger sister, the
K600 series, the K350 series comes complete with a rolling
block link chain designed to minimize chain running noise.
An additional polygon compensation function reinforces the
effect of the smooth running chain, substantially reducing
wear. Work-pieces are transported with pinpoint precision
and absolute dimensional and repeat accuracy.
The improved shaving and waste piece disposal facility in
the sizing section makes for improved machine availability
and a longer service life.
PowerProfiler BMB 900 – a whole new class in window
One of the major highlights in the field of stationary technology
this year is the new PowerProfiler BMB 900, a true
multi talent that comes equipped with up to 432 tools.
The challenge to produce “100 windows a day” was what
prompted Homag to launch the development of automated
processing centres capable of executing the whole
range of tasks required for complete individual part processing
in CNC precision – in other words the achievement
of a degree of ready-to-assemble fitting accuracy requiring
no finishing or reworking processes.
Practive for the practitioners – expertise tailored to the
needs of woodworking shops
Today’s woodworking shops and joineries are reliant on the
benefits of high quality products, flexibility and integral
solutions at an affordable price. The efficient use of resources
is assuming an ever more important role here, as
increases in productivity coupled with energy saving measures
can add up to appreciable savings in hard cash.
The companies Bargstedt Handlingsysteme, Brandt Kantentechnik,
Bütfering Schleiftechnik, Holzma Plattenaufteiltechnik,
Homag Holzbearbeitungssysteme, Ligmatech Automationssysteme
e Weeke Bohrsysteme already have a range of
high-powered individual solutions on offer. But even more
importantly, the partners’ products are all ideally coordinated
to work together: networked with the support of innovative
software concepts from Homag eSolution, they can
be combined to create top-class system solutions. Since
January 2011, Homag eSolution has raised the networking
of machines and software to a whole new integral dimension
which marks a brand new departure for the industry.
BÜTFERING: Rediscovering flexibility
The Bütfering presentation will be concentrating particularly
on innovations in the field of unit technology.
The focus of will be on wide-belt sanding machine SWT
315 X featuring the X unit at its nerve centre.
A complete new development, the patented X unit forms
the perfect symbiosis of combination unit with contact roller
and sanding unit with chevron belt. In this way, the X
unit fulfils a wide variety of different applications – from calibration
through fine sanding to the most challenging highgloss
finish. As the X unit can be used comprehensively in
all the machines of the 300 and 500 series, it can be combined
with up to five different sanding units.
