SCM‘s Renato Benelli said this was an indication of the high volume of customers the company saw on the first day of Ligna.

The Italian woodworking machinery manufacturer came to Hannover after having achieved considerable success at its own in-house exhibition in Rimini, where more than 1,000 customers from across Europe were in attendance.

SCM’s Ligna stand featured more than 120 machines spread over 4,000m2.

Technology aimed at small-and medium-sized companies was much in evidence, with the Record 100 NT machining centre designed for the production of doors, windows, staircases, kitchen elements and other products. The unit can be equipped with a new automatic TVN SET worktable for automatic positioning of the bars for linear components.

On the edgebanding front, SCM Group‘s Stefani brand presented its new single-sided squaring-edgebanding machine for flexible processing – the Evolution SB One.

Designed for small batches, the SB One is equipped with a portal feeding system which inserts panels lengthwise and crosswise, while the right feeding line moves at a maximum 10m/min – up to 18 panels a minute.
