Holz-Handwerk 2014 - Growing with the HOMAG Group
What starts out today as a compact workshop fitting into an area of below 80 square meters can evolve into an entry-level industrial-scale solution tomorrow – opening up exciting scope for new products, materials and designs. The technology, software and services needed are all waiting to be discovered in HOMAG City.
30 machines on over 1700 square meters
Individual solutions from the small edge bander to the large-scale fully automated solution and a choice of technologies for producing an optical zero joint – these are just some of the highlights visitors can look forward to at this year’s show. Also featuring: innovative window technology for maximum flexibility and performance.
The HOMAG Group is out this year to demonstrate just how efficient modern production can be, with smart PRACTIVE workshop concepts of all sizes – including coordinated operating and data concepts – and a wide range of stand-alone machines (sawing, storage, CNC technology, sanding technology, throughfeed machines, transport, handling and automation).
- Modular upgrading of workshops and stand-alone machines
- Flexible response to the demands of tomorrow
- Efficiency and transparency in terms of data structures and process flows
- Seamless software
- One point of contact for all machines
Software: Solutions such as woodCAD|CAM deliver a simple, reliable process flow from the initial idea through to the finished product – including 3D room planning at the customer’s point of sale, free design and a fully functional CAD program.
woodWOP goes 3D: woodWOP 7 is on the starting blocks and promises to provide some surprising new functions.
Zero joint with an attractive price tag – airTec: Where there used to be a joint there is now nothing visible at all. Today, the production quality aspirations of woodworking shops are just as high as they are in industry. This is why the HOMAG Group will be presenting an array of solutions for zero joint production in the woodworking shop – also in combination with edge processing using hot-melt glue. The airTec systems on show are already in successful operation. Here, the edge’s function layer is reactivated using heated compressed air to create a zero joint – with quality results every bit as good as those of laser technology but requiring significantly lower investment.
Automation and logistics: Innovations on show in this field will include some surprisingly flexible and high-powered solutions including feeding systems suitable both for entry level users and also larger-scale production outfits. Visitors may look forward to discovering a brand new storage/sawing/nesting concept with smart surface labeling system. There are also new features to discover for the Cut Rite optimization software, where performance meets flexibility to create intelligently networked solutions.
Flexible, efficient window technology: Also on show will be CNC processing centers for window production with an output of between 15 and 50 windows per shift, machine technology for producing windows of all shapes, from the small component through upright and transom elements to arched elements and doors. This diverse offering is supplemented by machines for wrapping profiles in plastic and aluminum in small production runs (fensterbau frontale / hall 3, stand 129).
Service: HOMAG Group original spares for optimum quality. The HOMAG Group has succeeded in driving down the prices of over 40 % of its spare parts by making the most of preferential purchasing conditions. Customers benefit from original spare parts from the HOMAG Group complete with warranty at a fair price as a guarantee of avoiding production outages. The spares are available from the online spare part shop www.eparts.de around the clock and are rapidly and safely dispatched to customers around the world.
