Battistella Company: High Quality Furniture in Batch Size 1 with woodFlex cell control

Industry 4.0 and Digitization at Battistella Company


2016/08/17   |   Italy

The new cell for four-sided edge banding is used to produce small series and batch size 1 furniture parts at the Group’s own supplier company Baco SRL. The production line measuring over 100 meters in length will be seamlessy integrated by the HOMAG Systems experts into the existing production with several cutting plants from HOLZMA and HOMAG Automation and a drilling line from WEEKE. 

The edging cell comes with a high-tech equipment outfit in terms of machine technology – including data transfer, edge preview and an overview for the return of produced stacks. woodFlex takes control of the complete cell – in Italy, this is the fi rst plant to be equipped with the new cell control system.

XYLEXPO visitors will be able to view this project as a multimedia experience – combined with additional concrete projects which have been implemented not only in Italy but internationally.

NEW: woodFLEX cell control system

Control and visualization of flexible production cells and their part flow

woodFlex ensures:

The control system is modular in structure and standardized for all the HOMAG Group plants – making it open for future requirements or extensions, particularly for the production of complex and completely networked plants. woodFlex engenders security for the user, creates process transparency and reduces the defect quota.

It is not to be confused with planning software: it optimizes sequences, ensures a certain standard – even when working with different cells – and signifi cantly enhances e ciency. With woodFlex, the user is making another decisive step towards the future with “Industry 4.0”.
