SCM Group unveils highlights for LIGNA 2017

The SCM Group 

Boasting a double-digit growth over the last two years, the SCM Group will participate in LIGNA 2017 offering clients “Industry 4.0” solutions.

At Hall 13, the Group will display a cell system combined with robot, able to provide a concrete implementation of the “mass customisation” concept, all in order to meet all customer-specific needs, while maintaining the advantages of industrial production.

Outstanding new solutions include an interface with an innovative and stunning “multi-touch” system, with a 21-inch display and a new graphic look which makes preparation work, production control and diversification easy and safe for operators.

The Maestro suite also had a new make-over. Excellent results have been achieved with beam saws using the new system optimiser, allowing an 80 percent reduction in computation time and up to 50 percent reduction in waste. The Watch system supervisor will demonstrate its great capabilities running by itself the cell system on view at Ligna 2017.

In general, the SCM Group software suites are designed as open systems that can operate with any type of machine, allowing total control over every machine function, while being easy and intuitive to use by any operator.

More than sixty products will be on display to meet the needs of any type of company. The new Morbidelli Author M100 and M200 machining centres will also be presented, ready to start the “AuthoR-Evolution”.

The Group’s 2016 revenues amount to nearly EUR600 million, up from 513 million in 2015 and 466 million in 2014. Exports accounted for a major part of SCM Group’s market share, but the Italian domestic market also demonstrated impressive recovery.
