The Weinig Group at LIGNA 2017: Networked production with maximum added value for the customer
In the 4,000 m2 of the Weinig stand, customers have seen a wide range of products in all performance classes. The visitor was sure to find the technologies that interested him.
This is why our theme for this trade fair is “THINK WEINIG”. The solid wood processing area presented the product range from the planning and profiling, cutting and optimization, jointing technology and window & furniture production segments. W4.0 digital, project business and alternative materials was all under the spotlight. Using networked systems, Weinig demonstrated its solution expertise across the entire value chain. Another first in Hanover was the group's joint presented the business unit Panel Processing. New Standard W4.0 digital/software In the field of networked production, Weinig has developed its own standard with W4.0 digital, which was presented for the first time in Hanover. The focus here is on efficient and resource-saving planning and production, as well as intelligent maintenance. We have a clear philosophy that guides us here: “Digitization for its own sake does not give you a competitive advantage. Our solutions always focus on providing added value to the customer,” explains Gregor Baumbusch, Director of Sales and Marketing. The Moulder Master combines all processes up-stream of production. The Weinig Solid Woodwork Flow opens up the CNC system for use in many different work environments in window and furniture manufacturing. Parts tracking, machine monitoring and predictive maintenance are further topics that will be covered. Also in Hanover, we will be demonstrating the various possibilities offered by the Weinig Service App. For example, the integrated live window allows you to perform various actions on a smartphone, regardless of your location: identification of machine problems, initiation of service inquiries, and reduction of down times.
