SCM showcased its best at the Dach+Holz 2024 fair

Making the best use of the Dach+Holz 2024 fair in Stuttgart , SCM presented its latest innovations in the timber building sector before the industry. It attracted attendees and visitors who showed interest in the program of activities developed by the SCM team. All of the arrangement included live demos on the CMC machining center OIKOS XS and on the new HMI Maestro active beam&wall, managed to engage and best explain all the potential of SCM solutions. Furthermore, DMC SYSTEM XL was presented, the automatic sander-calibrator with the addition of three new groups for processing both the upper and lower faces of CLT panels.

The OIKOS XS competition was also a great success and the winners of the various days were able to personally check the speed, precision and flexibility of the SCM 5-axis machining center.

OIKOS XS: speed of execution and high configurability
OIKOS XS is the most versatile model in the Oikos range, CNC machining centre for timber construction ideal for companies looking for high speed and precision combined with a small
footprint and low cost.

It is suitable for the production of straight beams, prefabricated walls, trusses, roofs and blockhouses, i.e. structural elements requiring both very fast operations such as cutting, and more complex operations such as drilling, routing, dovetails and slots for hardware, on pieces that can have a maximum length of 16 metres, a maximum width of 450 mm and a maximum thickness of 240 mm.
The speed of execution is one of the main advantages, because the work piece feed rates can increase up to 3 m/sec. Furthermore, combined movements of the operating units cut down unproductive time due to axis repositioning.

OIKOS XS enables the coverage of the work piece 6 faces. Several operating units strategically positioned within the work area, resulting in a high degree of configurability to meet every specific customer need. Another plus is the innovative 4+1 axes revolver unit with differentiated speeds for each tool which allows for a unique finish.

The machine also stands out for its machining precision, which is achieved by extremely stiff clamping system for work piece feed, horizontal and vertical pressure rollers located close to the work area, a dynamic work piece support system active during processing and a laser probe to realize precise dovetails.

New HMI Maestro active beam&wall for quick and easy all-round control
Maestro active beam&wall is the new human-machine interface software dedicated to CNC machining centres for timber construction, which offers numerous functions in a simple and fast way:
Multi-project: it allows the production of elements of the same section but which are part of different projects to be optimised on the same raw bars, in order to minimise material waste. The optimisation process is fully automatic.

3D visualisation: possibility of exploring the workpiece and taking measurements. On the 3D element, the tool paths of the machining units are traced in real-time. Complete job management: management of routine maintenance, machine alarms, work shifts, printing of labels and creation of production reports… these are just some of the functions that the software makes available to the customer.
Advanced user management: different levels of authorisation can be enabled for each machine
operator depending on their capabilities, in order to protect the machining centre from incorrect

The new version of the HMI software is characterised by a totally renewed graphic interface aligned with that of the latest generation of software. Maestro active beam&wall is based on Maestro active, the HMI software adopted by the entire SCM Group for complete job order management.

Last but not least, the presence of the new eye-M top plus operator console compatible with all models in the Area and Oikos ranges. On the same console, upon request, the Maestro beam&wall programming software can also be installed, closely connected to the HMI software.
The possibility of using Maestro beam&wall both on a PC in the office and on the operator console, i.e. directly on the machine even for the programming phase, is an important advantage for companies that reckon on flexibility of use to increase their productivity.


OIKOS XL+ for great eco-sustainable challenges
OIKOS XL+ is the new CNC machining centre for the production of columns and structural beams with a max. cross-section of 1250×610 mm. This solution has inherited all characteristics of OIKOS XL, a machining centre chosen by leading companies both in Europe and North America, amplifying all its advantages, thanks to the implementation of a second independent machining unit with a 1150 mm diameter saw blade.

In line with the increased expansion of multi-storey wooden buildings globally, OIKOS XL+ has been designed to overcome even the most complex challenges. The robust and adequately sized structure of the machine means very heavy elements of up to 4 tons can be processed, as well as very hard materials.
Flexibility is another key point, in fact any operation on any side of the work piece can be performed with no need of repositioning, thanks to the innovative 6-axis architecture of the main machining unit. Productivity and precision are other primary requirements that are the basis of this model.

The second 5-axis saw blade unit allows a blade radius of an impressive 400 mm. Furthermore, the use of a saw blade rather than a chainsaw aggregate means to work faster and achieve a better quality.
Another advantage is the ability to execute cuts from bars with a maximum thickness of 610 mm. Decisive is the machining strategy behind the OIKOS XL+, which combines the second saw blade unit with the main machining unit that has a 740 mm diameter saw blade.

DMC SYSTEM XL: built bigger to work harder
Two years after the launch of DMC SYSTEM XL, automatic sanding-calibrating machine for timber construction sector, with its firsts three modules (roller, pad and crossbelt units), the machine has been further enriched with new units that enable to process both top and bottom face of CLT
panels up to 3.700 mm wide and 500 mm thick.

New features presented at Dach+Holz 2024 are: bottom roller unit, top/bottom pad unit and “piggyback” crossbelt unit, modules that can be fully combined and integrated with each other according to the customer’s production requirements, by offering very high configuration versatility (a distinctive plus of DMC SYSTEM XL) and unification of components and common parts to optimise operating costs.

The solid steel structure is conceived to last long and withstand the most intense machining, by granting zero-vibration. Furthermore, the automatic sanding-calibrating machine has been developed to make the operator’s maintenance work easy, fast and always safe.
Energy saving is a key issue: the machine has been specifically engineered with an optimised design and technological solution for minimum compressed air consumption.
Even this solution, as well as all SCM sanding technological offer, is aimed at improving the surface finishing and increase the value of the finished product. Reflecting the latest market trends in having visible CLT walls and a product that is as natural as possible (without resorting to additional surface treatments).

Present in Hall 10, Stand 421 from March 5 to March 8, 2024, the company presented its best with ultimate satisfaction. SCM made use of the opportunity and was able to make the company’s distinctive solutions better known, while rendering the visitors a better insight into the industry.
