Creating a world of smart factories

Dr. Federico Broccoli, Wood Division/Sales Director and Subsidiaries, Division Director

Product/Solution: Woodworking machines

Three completely automated process solutions, from raw materials to the finished product, will highlight the results of an evolved production system that’s attentive and efficient, personalised and flexible. A total of 49 solutions aim at all the manufacturing companies, from large-scale with notable production volumes to businesses looking for flexibility and personalisation and small firms that can be transformed into real “smart factories”. Biesse presented its ROS (Robotically Operated System) integrated robots for handling panels, ensuring efficiency and versatility without the need for the operator’s intervention.
In the search for optimum finish quality, lower consumption and easy use, Biesse is presented Ray Force System – the revolutionary new method for applying edgebanding strips to shaped panels thanks to an exclusive technique based on the melting of a reactive layer with the use of infrared lamps.
Another solution on display was the Rover machining centre, always at the top in terms of reliability but now enhanced even further thanks to the new FPS tables that improve speed and productivity. Edgebanding discovers new levels of compactness with the Akron 1100, a new automatic single-sided edgebanding machine for artisans and small businesses.
Visitors also got a close-up view of technologies dedicated to the construction world: alongside the Uniteam E-MIX, a machining centre specifically designed for CLT machining, LIGNA will also see the début of the Uniteam RC, a new entry-level machining centre for beams and partitions for creating prefabricated panels and frame structures.
Biesse’s focus was around the Digital Hub – a link between the software packages – where visitors examined the true heart of the applications installed on Biesse technologies.
