The huge wooden Hashtag welcomed the woodworking enthusiasts at the world’s largest woodworking fair in Hannover, for five long days in the month of May 2019. The hashtag, which took several hours of careful work and then FH Melle assembled and placed in the middle of the fair ground, was a unique attraction at the fair area.
Dr. Giuseppe Bacci, CEO BACCI Automation, culminated on the fifth day stating, “This year, LIGNA showed again that it is the world’s top trade fair for the wood processing industry. LIGNA attracts a high number of visitors from around the world so, from a commercial standpoint, it is the best platform for presenting new and innovative machines and process solutions. LIGNA 2019 featured a large number of robotics solutions for production process automation. For many machinery manufacturers, robotics-based automation offers exciting new development opportunities and solutions. We decided to showcase the Bacci Group’s entire product range at LIGNA 2019 and are pleased to say it was a great success. We offer our sincere thanks to the LIGNA team and are looking forward to coming back again in 2021.”
LIGNA 2019 also presented “all-in-one” solutions that can efficiently bring together multiple standalone machines to create integrated process flows. The show likewise featured new developments in saw technology that deliver industrial safety benefits. These involve high-performance sensor systems for material detection – a new generation of self-learning scanner technology that represents an exciting initial implementation of AI in woodworking.
This year’s highlights of the wood-based construction area exhibited the world premiere of a six-axis aggregate that processed work-pieces on all sides without repositioning. There was also a newly developed membrane press that can handle curved and uneven surfaces.
