WEINMANN Treff 2018: Experience the latest technologies and trends live
This year, WEINMANN is once again opening up its production facility to present the latest machine technologies and digital solutions for timber work. Visitors can see live presentations of concepts for flexible production processes, increased levels of prefabrication and digital networking. Visitors can see these highlights in St. Johann-Lonsingen from November 8 to 9, from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.
Experience machine technologies live
As a complete system provider for timber work, WEINMANN is presenting its entire product portfolio, with practical applications demonstrated live on the machines.
Carpentry machine BEAMTEQ B-660
The BEAMTEQ B-660 carpentry machine is designed for complex beam processing at great speed and with a high degree of accuracy. Not only does this increase production efficiency, but the compact machine layout with integrated noise protection also offers space-saving installation. The highlight of the BEAMTEQ B-660 is the integrated underfloor unit. All six sides of the component are processed fully automatically in one throughfeed at any angle and tilt. Traditional block house joints, blocking grooves on rafters and dovetail joints on both sides of ridge beams can be produced quickly and easily. In combination with the 12-part tool changer and the second integrated main spindle, the underfloor unit enables the highest possible beam processing performance at a consistently high quality.
BUILDTEQ A-530 carpentry table
This carpentry table is ideally suited to the manufacturing of wall, gable, roof and ceiling elements as well as frame walls and roof dormers, and the integrated technology guarantees a high level of dimensional and angular accuracy. The BUILDTEQ A-530 can be expanded with modules and offers a series of options which allow the carpentry table to be perfectly adapted to suit any requirements.
WALLTEQ M-120 multifunction bridge
With the WALLTEQ M-120 multifunction bridge, WEINMANN offers a machine for producing wall, roof, ceiling and gable elements that can process even small quantities highly efficiently. Equipped with chucks for stapling and nailing devices and a routing unit, the machine can secure and process the sheathing automatically to produce elements with highly accurate dimensions. This includes creating openings for windows, doors and sockets, as well as free shapes such as circles, curves or diagonal cuts. With low procurement costs, the WALLTEQ M-120 offers an excellent price/performance ratio and is the perfect entry-level solution for small and medium-sized carpentry businesses.
WALLTEQ M-340 multifunction bridge
Another machine being presented live is the WALLTEQ M-340 multifunction bridge. The all-rounder for timber frame construction can be expanded to meet individual needs, which makes it incredibly versatile. The integrated 12-part tool changer quickly finds the correct tool, keeping setup times to a minimum and increasing efficiency. Securing, sawing, routing and drilling are all fully automated. The WALLTEQ M-340 also offers a series of equipment options for specialized applications.
FRAMETEQ F-700 frame work station with integrated robot
In recent years, WEINMANN delivered the first two systems with integrated robots. And this year, visitors to the WEINMANN Treff will be able to see a robot in action again. The robot is used to insert the plates and beams when creating frame works. It accesses both standard beams and special beams as well as top and bottom plates with cross-sections from 40x100 mm to 160x250 mm. The robot can pick up components weighing up to 75 kg and is controlled via a wup data record.
Timber work 4.0 — the path to the digital future
An integrated data flow and the corresponding information flow enable an efficient and flexible production process. Software is increasingly becoming the decisive factor for the benefits of machines. At the WEINMANN Treff, visitors can see a wide selection of new, digital productions which offer a clear advantage for everyday work on the CNC-controlled machines. Experts from our software department are available for questions and consultation.
MMR Professional optimizes the production sequence and ensures systematic data recording. It records the number of workpieces produced, the operating time of the machine and much more.
All CNC-controlled machines from WEINMANN are tapio ready, which enables the use of cloud-based technologies such as DataSave, ServiceBoard and MachineBoard.
