See you in Ligna!!

Companies IMA Klessmann GmbH and Schelling Anlagenbau GmbH will present themselves for the first time under their new corporation name IMA Schelling Group (ISG) as well as with a new logo and Corporate Design. However, nothing has changed with the joint presentation of IMA, Schelling and Priess+Horstmann aka the “IMA Network”.

Batch-size-1 production using a fully automated and integrated production line will be the predominant theme on show at this year’s fair. IMA will once again present itself as a machine and plant manufacturer for complete solutions from one source.

New solution for panel cutting

A new flexible panel cutting cell for custom production of furniture will be one of the exhibition highlights. It will for the first time combine the panel cutting technologies from IMA and Schelling into a high-volume line with flexible cutting possibilities and panel optimisation.

Moreover, IMA will present its machines at beginners level at the Ligna 2017, for example the Novimat Contour with IMALUX – i.e. the direct laser system for truly seamless edge banding in small industrial shops – and a ›Feedback‹ return conveyor. The new features of the high-volume drilling machine ›IMAGIC Flex‹ will also be presented. And last but not least, the IMA Service will be represented with its own booth at the Ligna fair.

IMA, Schelling and Priess+Horstmann the “IMA Network” will be displayed on a common, 3608 m² large exhibition stand (Hall 12 / Stands A 50 – E 50).

The Weinig Group at LIGNA 2017:  Digitized production at the customer’s service

LIGNA 2017 will open with a new space concept. This means that, for the first time, the Weinig Group will be presenting its complete range for solid wood and panel processing in Hall 27. The 4000 m2 stand will pro-vide customers with a unique offering for small business and industry under the motto “THINK WEINIG”. The solid wood processing area will present the product range from the planing and profiling, cutting and op-timization, jointing technology and window & furniture production seg-ments. W 4.0 Digital, project business and alternative materials will all be under the spotlight.

The Weinig Powermat world

In the Powermat, Weinig has created a modular system that fulfills these precise requirements. The new Powermat 2400 will celebrate its world premiere at LIGNA. The moulder is designed for industrial bead produc-tion at feed speeds up to 100 m/min and will be demonstrated in a mech-anized process with charging and discharge. The 3D version can pro-duce freely-programmable structured surfaces during throughfeed. A new feature is the facility to produce work pieces with conical or curved contours on the machine. For newcomers to the world of Weinig profil-ing, we have the Powermat 700 Compact. A window version is availa-ble in the same performance category for planing scantlings and profiling mouldings. On the next level, the Powermat 1500 is available in a wide range of variants covering various requirements and applications. Whether producing different widths with a mobile spindle or small batch sizes on one and the same machine, the Powermat 1500 is a moulder for all occasions. The Powermat 2500 SP splitting unit equipped with kerf saws for separating lamellae, as used in central layer production for ex-ample, completes the Weinig Powermat world.

MARTIN has every reason to celebrate this year: For more than 95 years the name MARTIN has stood for premium-class woodwork-ing machinery. What Otto Martin, the founder, had started in 1922 with basic and solid machinery, eventually developed to become a benchmark for quality and functionality in the woodworking ma-chinery sector over the following nearly 100 years. Ground breaking innovations and numerous awards and patents date back to our traditional company from the Allgäu region of Germany. MARTIN has shaped the production environment of workshops and industrial enterprises worldwide.

Martin is at hall 12, stand E30.
