From a compact 80-m² workshop to industrial use
Something that starts with a compact 80-m² workshop today can grow to become an entry-level industrial solution in future. At the Holz-Handwerk trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, the HOMAG Group is presenting a wide range of options for expanding production on a modular basis at any time so that businesses can respond flexibly to tomorrow's requirements, increase efficiency, and optimize work processes — in line with the motto: "Growing with the HOMAG Group".
With intelligent workshop concepts and a wide range of individual machines (saws, storage, CNC technology, sanding technology, throughfeed machines, transport, handling, automation), the HOMAG Group is showing just how efficient production can be — including coordinated operating and data concepts. HOMAG eSOLUTION provides integrated software for all aspects from sale to delivery of the finished furniture. For example, the HOMAG Group is displaying the woodCAD|CAM software solution which provides a simple and reliable process from the initial idea to the finished product — including 3D room planning at the customer's point of sale, free design, and a fully-fledged CAD program. All software solutions, including woodNET and woodFactory, can be used either as stand-alone solutions or in combination. The modular structure allows the software to be introduced into the company step by step.
In the trade sector, there is a noticeable trend toward automation and logistics. Here, the HOMAG Group is surprising everyone with a new saw-storage combination consisting of the HPP 300 profiLine panel dividing saw and the TLF 211 area storage system. A particularly unusual feature is the transport of panel material with a textured surface using a newly developed special suction device. Edge processing is not resting on its laurels in terms of automation either, playing a trump card with an edge processing cell featuring circulation and a barcode reading system.
HOMAG powerProfiler BMB800/900: benchmark for flexibility and performance
The new generation of window processing machines in the form of powerProfiler BMB800/900 has successfully arrived on the market. Orders have been received in all relevant performance classes and expansion stages; these are currently under construction or already being actively used by customers.
The basic concept of the machine, with its options and scalable expandability, is impressive: in addition to new gripping and clamping technology with new options for profile design and the ability to process not only straight parts but also curved elements and doors, the machine impresses above all with its performance. Parallel processing of multiple components and quick tool changes ensure high performance even for complex work processes. Automation solutions with feed and interlinking options to the upstream plane or the subsequent flow priming integrate the powerProfiler as the core in an integrated continuous production in batch size 1.
