The response couldn’t be clearer – in countless conversations and presentations at the Schelling industry stand at Ligna, experts were convinced by this innovative cutting concept for single production run manufacturing. And they ordered the product, too! Schelling was also able to display attractive feed solutions in the production hall, which also met with a great response from the expert audience.

The fact that saws from Schelling are the leader of the pack in terms of single production run technology was impressively proved at Ligna.

“The cutting technology impressively provides more precision, increased speed thanks to simple processes, less scrap and dust, and noise simultaneously with less power consumption,” summarises Schelling darketing director Thomas Gsellmann.

Cut boards to size individually
The new Schelling ls1 achieves new levels of productivity, e.g. for kitchen manufacturers, who work with individualised offers. In cases where each kitchen needs to be produced according to the personal specifications of the end customer, mass production and stack processing is passé. Digital kitchen planning is translated into parts lists and cut plans. Each part is cut individually and fully automatically.

A challenge in this case is presented by the constantly changing boards in diverse, often expensive qualities, colours, and textures. Other challenges include guaranteed high degree of board recycling in spite of single production on the one hand, while constant utilisation of the saw is ensured on the other.

Compact truing wheel concept
Different strategies trigger these tasks, for example the intelligent combination of area storage system and return feed of board scrap. The “turning wheel concept” was made visible at LIGNA.

The latter ensures that the boards are able to be cut to size via multiple cuts.

In this case, the board and its parts run through the saw as often as is desirable for optimal recycling of the board. Third and fourth cuts are proof of maximum cost-effectiveness. Bonus effect: Because the system technically only requires one saw line, the saw may be practically utilised in continuous operation. The compact construction of the system is revolutionary, since it delivers high technology and productivity into very little space.

Unmanned system for Häcker Kitchens
Many essential detail improvements, for example brush tables instead of rollers, provide more process security and ensure precise implementation. Fully automation means unmanned operation.

The turning wheel system presented in hall 26 is the core of a complex single production run system for kitchen manufacturer Häcker, the third-largest in the industry in Germany.

fh4 and fh5 with stationary motor
The core of this system features the proven Schelling cut-to-size saw fh4. In any case, this now also features new specifications since Ligna 2015: The fh4 moves up one class and is now equipped with a stationary motor for all serial versions. Recently, it is also complemented with the fh5, which closes the gap in terms of cutting performance, i.e. saw blade clearance, between the Schelling fh6.

In production hall 11, Schelling also demonstrated that small companies can also profit from using Schelling technology. Productivity and flexibility were demonstrated with the Schelling s 45 in combination with a Barbaric brand feed device.

Cut boards to size with mitre cut: s45
The s45 is an all-round cut-to-size saw with mitre cut. It revolutionises the work processes involved with cutting board-shaped wood construction materials, since it not only cuts boards highly efficiently, it also simultaneously produces mitre cuts with an incline from zero to 46 degrees. The possible applications for you are almost limitless. Besides completing many existing processes simpler and more economically, it also opens up entirely new applications, markets and customer groups for many users.

Schelling considers the most recent presentation at Ligna, the world’s leading exhibition for forestry and wood companies, a confirmation of its strategy for defending its market leadership in cut-to-size saw technology. Because quality, precision, and machine availability are the main criteria that persuade investment: positive exhibition reactions and orders have impressively proved this one again.
