This year’s Weinig Group InTech at-home trade fair was a show of superlatives. With 1550 professional visitors from 34 countries, the event once again surpassed those of previous years. Visitors from all over Europe saw the largest number of machines and systems ever shown at the event in Tauberbischofsheim, with 50 pieces of technology over a record exhibition area of more than 4000 sq m.
Under the motto ‘Weinig technology offensive 2014’, the Weinig Group rang in the Ligna year 2015 with innovations from all product units – from solid wood and panels to system solutions. Visitors were also able to learn first-hand about the comprehensive portfolio of Weinig services, from financing, maintenance, spare parts and training to engineering, which offer customers maximum added value.
There was a particular focus on window production at this year’s InTech. Visitors were particularly fascinated with the complex, networked system technology which demonstrated Weinig’s leading position in this segment.
The subject of networking was a core theme at the InTech event. Weinig offers a range of application-oriented solutions in this area of the future, from work preparation with the Moulder Master and the Millvision production software to design with FenCon and the modular control concept for window production.
In Weinig’s core skills of planing and profiling, it unveiled the Powermat 700, launching a new generation of moulders, which inspired with their standardised operating concept.
Two impressive customer systems, which are already in use, were used to illustrate the expertise of Weinig Concept, an engineering think tank and partner for complete solutions and projects across all aspects of wood optimisation.
Besides an innovative solution for cost-reducing finishing of solid wood parquet, the new patented process for block gluing with butt joints, which saves on raw materials, met with great interest.
The panel processing side of the operation was represented for the first time at InTech. The innovative product range from Holz-Her gave further impetus to the company trade fair. In the Evolution vertical CNC processing centre and Glu Jet glue application system, Holz-Her exhibited two products that recently won the Challengers Award for outstanding innovations in the USA.
