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 door processing.

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 processing.
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.
