LIGNA 2017 preview: Weinig Group presents digitised production

The Weinig Group will be presenting its complete range for solid wood and panel processing in Hall 27 at LIGNA this year. Under the motto “THINK WEINIG”, small businesses will stand to benefit from a product range including planing and profiling, cutting and optimisation, jointing technology and window & furniture production segments. W 4.0 Digital, project business and alternative materials will all be under the spotlight.

All 40 Weinig Group exhibits will be demonstrated live. Another first in Hanover will be the group’s joint presentation with the business unit Panel Processing. Holz-Her will be exhibiting solutions for CNC processing, panel splitting and edge banding on the Weinig Group stand as well as presenting panel storage systems.

Industry 4.0 is the key mega trend in the wood industry. However, as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Gregor Baumbusch underlines, “Digitisation for its own sake does not give you a competitive advantage. Our solutions are always targeted towards customer benefits.”

Efficient and resource-saving planning and production as well as intelligent maintenance run like a common thread through Weinig’s networked production solutions, also known as W 4.0 Digital. All solutions are tailored towards providing the customer with the right information at the right time and in a user-friendly manner. This applies equally to industry and small business, which are increasingly difficult to differentiate.
