Visual Components, an established developer of 3D manufacturing simulation technologies based in Espoo, Finland, is making its LIGNA debut this year, presenting its solution specifically for the wood industry.
Digitization along the value chain is one of the major focus topics at LIGNA 2023, the world’s leading trade fair for the woodworking and wood processing industry, which will be held in Hannover to showcase the resulting transformation processes. Against this backdrop, Visual Components, a developer of 3D manufacturing simulation technologies based in Espoo, Finland, will be exhibiting at LIGNA for the first time this year. In Hall 16 (Booth F01), the company will be presenting solutions for the automation and simulation of manufacturing processes in the wood industry – from rough woodworking to the finished product.
Robotics Solutions as a decisive competitive Ffactor
The demand for wood as a raw material is booming unabated. At the same time, sustainability, consistent quality and more efficient production are becoming increasingly relevant. Automation solutions help to meet all these requirements in parallel, and therefore they are increasingly becoming key technology in the industry. “Robotic solutions are a crucial competitive factor, as they increase the overall efficiency of production, always work with consistently high precision, reduce waste and scrap, and relieve employees from heavy, monotonous as well as dangerous work,” summarizes Chris Douglass, Managing Director of Visual Components GmbH.
Running through what-if Scenarios
This is exactly where Visual Components comes in with its 3D manufacturing simulation software, enabling companies from all stages of wood processing to easily simulate, test and thus optimize factories and production facilities. The applications are many and varied: Visual Components’ customers use the software not only to plan new production plants, but also, for example, to test automation solutions in existing plants, identify bottlenecks and weak points in production, and run through what-if scenarios.
From the Log to the finished Product
At the Visual Components booth, interested visitors will gain detailed insights into the many possible applications of 3D manufacturing simulation along the production chain from the log to the finished product. Visual Components will also present concrete practical examples. Chris Douglass and his team will be on site for questions and discussions on these topics and are looking forward to the professional exchange with the trade fair visitors.
