Weinig Group, with its two brands Weinig and Holz-Her, will be presenting and conducting live demonstrations of their solutions at LIGNA 2023, that can address the lack of skilled labour and the need for optimised production.

Under its motto ‘Weinig Offers More’, the company invites visitors to experience a view of its range of machines, systems, software and services — for the production of single workpieces through to automated series production of solid wood and panel products.

These solutions focus on resource optimisation, ranging from individual technology solutions for machines to full-fledged production systems.

For example, Weinig will present their new Hydromat moulder. With a feed speed of 400m/min and WMC machine control, the new Hydromat can optimise chip removal and save material during pre-planing, and can also be flexibly equipped for the production of profiled goods.

Weinig is also showcasing the OptiCut 450 Quantum high-speed cross-cut saw. According to Weinig, the VarioStroke sawing unit of the OptiCut 450 Quantum can be flexibly adjusted to eight different cutting positions, enabling short cutting times for all cross-sections within the maximum cutting range.

For customers who need to produce solid wood panels cost-efficiently at a high output, the ProfiPress C 2500 HF can be seen in live operation. Up to 100 lamellas per minute can be glued at the edge, collected and continuously pushed into the press.

Specialists at Weinig Systems Solutions will also be at the stand to inform visitors about Weinig’s competences for the implementation of integrated production lines in the solid wood sector, new developments for the optimisation of production processes, and about current large-scale projects.

Furthermore, specialists from the Weinig New Business & Innovation will demonstrate how specific applications increase the availability of the machines and relieve skilled personnel through efficient production control.

Weinig will be at Hall 27: Stands D32, D40, D50, D60, D66, D74, D40, E50, and E60.

The group will also be opening the doors to its Weinig Grecon production site in Alfeld, near Hannover, where LIGNA is based. Over there, finger jointing lines for optimum material utilisation and efficient utilisation of residues of the raw wood material will be on display.
