This year at LIGNA we have a quite broad product range, which we clustered into three topics. One is our topic regarding innovation, which is our core business where we always try to increase our value for our customers. Here, I would like to mention the Technomelt PW 863 which is a new grade for panel lamination that has a couple of advantages, especially when it comes to melting behavior, high surface hardness and heat resistant – so ideal for industrial experts. Then, we also have new services when we are talking about Digitalization, IoT and Industry 4.0 under the new brand ‘Henkel Connect’. With those services we want to use data that we can gather during the adhesive application process, for instance regarding pressure, temperature or humidity.The data is provided to our customers in order to facilitate their processes so that at the end of the day they have a better end product. Furthermore, they can easily connect with our technical customers service by our new tool.
And lastly, we also have some exciting topics which rely on our unique internal corporate expertise. We offer 3D printing solutions, which are a hot topic at the moment. Also, Printed Electronics – where we provide inks to make surfaces smart for instance regarding pressure and temperature – is of interest. In a nut shell, this is our range of products: classical innovation, digitalization and new services that we want to introduce to the woodworking industry.
