SCM is once again taking the centre stage at Xylexpo 2022. This trade fair is a special opportunity for the Italian Group to celebrate its 70th Anniversary as well.

With an innovative, multimedia stand of over 2,000 square metres in the Hall 22, the Group is presenting its vision of a digital, connected and integrated factory, designed to accompany all the businesses and fields of application in the sector: artisans as well as large industries; furniture, windows and doors, timber construction and joinery.

Integration is one of the key concepts that will drive the experience of visitors at SCM’s stand. The Smart&Human Factory model already successfully applied by global manufacturing leaders, will present different innovations aimed at making customer processes even more efficient and sustainable and will be re-proposed in two specific versions for industry and artisan.

In both cases, SCM will propose integrated automated flexible cell systems that are modular and easily reconfigurable, capable of meeting all the Industry 4.0’s demands.

Cells that combine the advantages of SCM technologies in terms of solidity, efficiency and reliability, with world class manufacturing digital products and services: MES systems to manage and control production; line and cell supervisory software to monitor the state of each of the products being machined throughout the entire process; IoT systems and apps to gather and analyse data from machines, for complete control and implementation of intelligent and prognostic maintenance models. Without forgetting the robotic and automation systems integrated into the machines, these too are flexible and modular, for use in large industries.

Also integrated is the digital transformation vision that visitors at Xylexpo will have a chance to see for themselves in the SCM Digital Integrated Woodworking Process. Here, technologies, software and services integrate at each of the stages – preparation of data, planning, production, monitoring and assistance – to increase productivity and connect the entire process from the office to the factory. Among the many new entries in process software, considerable interest is expected for easyFlow, SCM’s new MES plug&play that is simple, scalable and available even to artisan businesses, and SCM Thundercut, the cutting optimiser-sequencer that brings the potentials of a circular saw closer to the most powerful industrial panel saws.

In the same area, there will be the opportunity to discover the increasingly customer-centred digital services that support the customer from pre to after sales. In evidence the new My Scm portal that grants access to a vast range of technical support services anytime, anywhere, even via smartphone. Also highlighted is the IoT Maestro connect platform perfectly integrated to the “Woodworking made Izy” project that sees the most important machinery manufacturers committed to offering a common language for their technologies, as part of a complete integration of the customer’s machines.

Made in SCM innovation will encompass the entire range of solutions on show for the industry: sizing, nesting, edgebanding, drilling, assembly and packaging as part of panel machining; integrated SCM Surface Technologies for sanding, pressing and painting to meet all the demands for exclusive, state-of-the-art finishing results; technologies for windows and doors and solid wood machining; squaring, including the latest for click furniture; systems for timber construction and 4.0 joinery.

Equally innovative will be the presentation method of the various new entries with 7.5x3m LED wall, multimedia and interactive systems, video cameras and 3D flow animations ready to let visitors enjoy a unique, real-time experience on each production process.
