SCM, global leading producer of machinery and systems for the secondary woodworking industry, confirms its participation in the next VietnamWood trade exhibition, to be held from September 20 to 23 in Ho Chi Minh city.
For the first time the Italian group will directly attend the event with its own booth (Hall A573) in line with the strong attention to Vietnamese and South East Asian markets and the strategic investments that SCM has implemented to be even closer to furniture manufacturers in this region. SCM’s direct participation will not only convey the most suited products and services for this market but this will also be the opportunity to announce great news for Vietnamese customers starting from the next opening of a new subsidiary in Ho Chi Minh in January 2024.
“SCM sees Vietnam as the most important market in terms of volume in the South East Asia area” says Giovanni Casadei, SCM regional manager for the Middle East, Indian subcontinent and South East Asia markets. “The new SCM Vietnam subsidiary will be wholly owned by Scm Group and will employ a professional team comprised of Vietnamese sales specialists and technical service engineers, in order to guarantee a more direct and extensive sales network and technical support to all businesses in the woodworking sector, from pre-sales to after sales”.
SCM has had a branch Malaysia, in Kuala Lumpur, since 2015. So far it has served the Vietnamese market through the most important distributor in the woodworking sector. The next opening of SCM Vietnam will be a major step forward to strengthen its presence in this market.
VietnamWood will be the ideal stage to meet SCM team and discover some of the cutting-edge technologies that are most appreciated for their high quality machining and flexibility by South East Asian furniture manufacturers.
The main attractions will be morbidelli m100, CNC machining centre for routing and drilling, and the stefani kd edge bander.
As a highly modular 5-axis CNC machining centre, morbidelli m100 provides answers to all the problems associated with woodworking. Unmatched finishing is possible thanks to the JQX (Just Quality eXtreme) 5-axis direct-driven spindle head which ensures the total absence of vibrations even with huge material removal at high speed and with the high-performance drilling heads with RO.AX (Rotoaxial spindle technology) spindles and rotation speed up to 8000 rpm.
Other advantages are provided by TV FLEX, the manual positioning table that is able to grant the best flexibility: rails and pods position quotes are visualized on TECPAD remote control display according to the program loaded; no limits manual positioning of rails, pods and clamps; aided positioning through measuring tapes both on frame (for rails) and rails (for pods and clamps); tubeless design.
Software is another main feature: just a few clicks to design and manufacture pieces of any shape, the machine is run by the Suite Maestro which has specific modules for every production cycle.
VietnamWood visitors will also find out the advanced features of stefani kd edge bander. Stefani kd is a versatile edge bander that can process any type of panel, even the most delicate ones, thanks to the upper belt presser. The SGP glue pot, supplied as standard, with the special non-stick plasma treatment allows the use of two different types of glue, EVA and PUR, for perfect edgebanding quality even on the latest generation panels. The optimal glue dosage and the special spreading roller ensures a perfect glue line. The SGP glue pot can be loaded both manually and with automatic pre-melters and the glues can be interchanged thanks to the automatic glue change/cleaning cycle with unloading onto the removable collection box. The possibility of having 2 premelters at the same time, the QMS-P for EVA glue and the PU BOX L for PUR glue, always guarantees the best glue quality. Stefani kd is also a flexible edge bander that allows panels with different edge thicknesses to be edgebanded thanks to the automatic set-up of the operating units with a speed of up to 20 metres per minute.
Many other SCM cutting-edge technologies will be presented in digital mode, including celaschi double-end tenoners that are also conceived for the machining of “click furniture” panels. An SCM celaschi specialist will be present on the booth to illustrate these advanced and customized solutions.
Last but not least, a wide offer of software and digital services will be illustrated by SCM team for more efficient, smart and integrated production: from planning and programming to after-sales assistance thanks to Maestro connect IoT platform.
