Ligna 2017 was a great success for our partner Biesse: the Italian firm attracted a lot of visitors on their 5000 m² of stand area. Between the crowd, some high-tech innovations stood out. A lot of the new machines/solutions were introduced for the first time during Ligna in Hal 11. An overview:
Industrie 4.0 is a collective term for new technologies and concepts within the knowledge and manufacturing economy. It refers in particular also to the advanced digitalization of the industry. The classic example: Biesse its Smart Factory. This connection of machines and robots completes wood panels from start to finish. Click here for more information and the corresponding video.
During Ligna in Hannover, Biesse proudly announced their new Parts Portal: a free system which allows you to order the right (spare) parts for your Biesse woodworking machines 24/24, 7 days on 7. More information about the system can be found here.
With the ‘Internet of Things’ (IOT) everything is about the wireless connection between the machines. Biesse its Machine Knowledge Center illustrates this smart inter-mechanical communication perfectly: by continuously collecting information, the production process is optimized. The production process is from now on directed where necessary. More information about this principle can be found here.
During Ligna, Biesse introduced new expansions of her Italian machinery. Both the Rover K FT, Rover A Synchro and Akron 1400 + Stream A possess some high-tech features.
