Digital transformation, increasing demands on efficiency, and a resource-conserving approach to wood as a raw material as the driving force behind green materials processing: Fire protection and measurement technology specialist Fagus-GreCon responds to these trends at the upcoming LIGNA 2023 as an exhibitor.
“We are offering a lot of new products in this regard and are looking forward to presenting this to the trade audience,” commented Uwe Kahmann, managing director of Fagus-GreCon. “Extensive investments have been made in product developments and our services. This is now paying off for our customers. At LIGNA, we present the right answers to urgent industry questions.”
For instance, the further development of the GreCon THICKNESSCONTROL inline thickness measurement system focuses on the increasing demands on measurement technology systems. Even at high production speeds, the system enables measurements of almost the entire board.
With GreCon GASANALYSER MC, the company also presents its product development for the determination of the formaldehyde emission of wood-based materials. It shortens test times, further improves operability, and extends calibration intervals.
The full-area measuring mat scanner GreCon MATCONTROL HF, which is used for measuring basis weight and detecting foreign bodies in the area of particleboard and fibreboard, also offers customers improvements in terms of efficiency and resource management, and optimising operating costs.
With the GreCon EDGEINSPECT edge inspection system, the company draws on its years of specialism in the field of scanner technology. EDGEINSPECT is a system for quality control of furniture edges and door frames that detects defects such as broken edges, missing or too short decorative strips, or breaks in edges.
In preventive fire protection, Fagus-GreCon has continued the digitalisation of its product portfolio and, following intelligent detection technology (IDT) at the last LIGNA, is now presenting maintenance-optimised extinguishing with intelligent extinguishment technology (IET).
“An important aspect of our digitalisation plans is the diagnostic properties of our systems in order to detect wear effects and prevent downtime,” explained Nils Vespermann, head of product management at Fagus-GreCon. Among other things, the goals are “better planned and shortened maintenance operations, which contribute to increased productivity”.
Structurally, Fagus-GreCon is also continuing to invest in the expansion of its services, such as the newly created position of service advisor. With this, the company hopes to provide even closer customer support over the entire service life of the GreCon systems.
