SCM announces dates for grand opening of Technology Centre for woodworking processing

The Technology Centre features the latest solutions by SCM Woodworking

From 28-30 Sep 2023, SCM Group will be unveiling their new Technology Centre at their Rimini, Italy headquarters.

According to SCM, the 4,000m2 Technology Centre is the new digital home of woodworking innovation. Every detail has been designed to offer a range of technologies and services and provide integrated, connected, flexible, more sustainable and optimised processes at each stage of secondary wood processing.

The grand opening of the Technology Centre is aimed at companies and stakeholders from the entire woodworking industry at global level, and will showcase the latest solutions developed by the group, be it for the production of furniture, doors and windows, or timber construction, or software services.

For example, the Technology Centre will feature Cargo, an automatic system for loading and unloading doors and panels, and the new computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) programming software, Maestro lab.

Cargo will be presented integrated with the morbidelli m200 pods&rails machining centre. It is a fully automated cell that requires no operator supervision.

It can also continuously load and unload pieces in masked time while the machine performs drilling and routing operations.

Maestro lab allows users to transform an idea into a finished product with its advanced programming functions and more than 150 already integrated apps.

The Technology Centre will also feature the Maestro Connect digital platform, which provides clients with rapid access to answers and specific advice by SCM.

This helps to support operators and maintenance workers with their challenges and needs for autonomy when using, carrying out maintenance and programming the machine and software.

SCM also mentioned that a specific area inside the Technology Center will demonstrate how data are transformed into “bespoke assistance and advisory services of a proactive and predictive nature”, with a view to ensuring client operational continuity.

The new automated spare parts warehouse Autostore will also be opened to visitors, and other technological solutions from the surface treatment and joinery machines segment will be on display.

Visitors interested to know the full product line-up featured inside the Technology Centre, and interested to sign up for the grand opening can head over to SCM Woodworking Technologies’ website.
