LIGNA 2023: HOMAG to “share passion” with visitors


Under the theme ‘Sharing Passion’, HOMAG will showcase a range of innovations from individual machines, integrated cell concepts and robotics up to complete system solutions together with key HOMAG partners tapio, Benz Tooling and Schuler Consulting at LIGNA. Besides woodworking solutions, HOMAG will also present solid wood solutions from WEINMANN, Kallesoe and System TM.

EDGETEQ S-500 with WZ14 and 40mm narrow parts

The WZ14 workpiece feeding system is now available for edgebanding machines in the EDGETEQ S-500 series. With the extended push catches of the WZ14, workpieces are guided safely under the top roll pressure unit. The moving gantry ensures precise parallel cuts — a prerequisite for achieving correct angles. This means that even rough-edged workpieces can be processed optimally. Another supplement to the EDGETEQ S-500 is the LOOPTEQ O-600 gantry return conveyor system. Intelligent automation forms the basis for a high-performance, interlinked material flow. The defined part rotation when moving the workpieces results in a process-oriented return for incomplete parts, and all finished workpieces can be ejected or stacked by this system. With the EDGETEQ S-500 narrow parts machine, users can now also precisely process narrow workpieces of down to 40mm.

World premiere: SAWTEQ B-300 and B-400 panel dividing saws

HOMAG will be presenting the first time the all-new SAWTEQ B-300 and B-400 series panel dividing saws, both of which have been updated with new features. The cutting solution combines performance, speed and reliable technology with increased intelligence and digital, self-learning
functions. With its improved working positions, the way the operator works with the saw control system is now more flexible and ergonomic. The intelliGuide Classic operator assistance system — which is now included as standard — supplements these optimisations and guides the operator through the cutting process safely and intuitively using LED signals.

STORETEQ panel storage platform

HOMAG will also be presenting the new, revised range of STORETEQ panel storage technology for the first time. The portfolio will be enhanced through the introduction of a feeding solution for the entry-level segment as well as second- and dual-level storage systems. Processes are improved as a result of increased reliability, availability and standardised data integration and processing. This is achieved by the consistent use of HOMAG’s woodStore storage system software. The second- and dual-level STORETEQ storage systems also offer optimal utilisation of available resources and address the issue of space limitations that exist in many countries.

SmartWOP design software

With SmartWOP, all users, including those without any prior computer-aided design (CAD) knowledge, have the CAD/computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) SmartWOP system at their disposal which they can use to design furniture intuitively in the shortest possible time using drag-and-drop. The furniture simulations created can then be saved in the library and be called up or modified at any time. The production data generated, such as computerised numerical control (CNC) programmes and parts lists for cutting, can then be transferred directly to HOMAG apps and digital assistants.

Focus on service

For HOMAG, ‘Sharing Passion’ means developing and offering individually tailored solutions with passion, from technology to software, through to service and support. This is exactly what HOMAG LifeCycleService stands for: The group has recently revised the price and performance offers so that the solutions offered are now better tailored to the company size.

HOMAG will be at Hall 14: Stands E28, G02, G06, G16, G24, G40, H16, H34, H48, H60/1, J02, J18, J34, J50.
