Construction industry is turning more responsible than ever and this LIGNA will witness some of the finest manufacturing possibilities carved out of wood. Timber house construction has gained massive market share over conventional construction methods in recent years. Also, the woodworking industry has introduced technological innovations for a responsible use of natural resources and the upcoming tradeshows are putting sustainability at the forefront.

As the trade show with the world’s widest range of processing machinery for wood construction, LIGNA 2023 will examine the focus topic “Prefab Building Processes” from all angles.

The timber houses are becoming increasingly cost-efficient – a trend that can be further enhanced by optimising prefabrication processes. This is because the prefabrication of wall and ceiling elements including doors and windows, complete roof trusses, stairs and much more, which can be preassembled under controlled conditions, helps achieve higher quality as well as faster construction times in timber construction.

Darko Zimbakov, Executive Vice President at WEINMANN Holzbausystemtechnik GmbH is responsible for the Construction Elements Solutions division, explains the solutions his company will be proposing at LIGNA 2023 to help users around the world get started in sustainable housing and building production.

A myriad of prefabrication products at LIGNA 2023

At LIGNA 2023, visitors will be able to experience the entire prefabrication process, from planning to machining and processing to logistics in the plant, as well as to and on the construction site. For example, in Hannover, Sweden’s Randek – a major player in prefabrication in wood construction with its combination of technological advances and decades of experience – will be showcasing everything from simple machines for use on construction sites to complex systems with robotic elements for large production plants. The German company Reichenbacher Hamuel GmbH will also be demonstrating at LIGNA 2023 why it plays an important role in timber construction. With its wide range of products and expertise, the specialist in CNC machining of complete wall and ceiling elements helps construction companies save time and thus costs, while improving the quality of their work.

LIGNA 2023 puts the spotlight on prefabrication processes

The special formats at LIGNA 2023 on the focus topic of “Prefab Building Processes” will address how the individual process steps in prefabrication can be harmonised with current trends in wood construction – for example, elementization and standardization, multi-storey wood construction, hybrid buildings, modular buildings and serial construction.

The presentation of the German Timber Construction Award, which is organized by Holzbau Deutschland and held under the patronage of the German Federal Minister of Construction, also pays tribute to the focus topic of “Prefab Building Processes”. The well-established “Zimmerertag” on May 16, 2023, will also take up the topic.
