Examining automation at LIGNA.
LIGNA will highlight the pivotal role automation is playing in keeping the furniture industry flexible and competitive.
Integrated manufacturing and automation are the cornerstones of Industry 4.0 – the science of staying ahead of the competition by having intelligent, integrated and technologically sophisticated production and logistics processes. These kinds of developments continue to gather steam and are an increasingly important fact of modern life in all process-intensive industries. And that is why LIGNA 2015 is putting a major spotlight on a whole range of innovative ideas and solutions for tailoring the integrated manufacturing paradigm of Industry 4.0 to industries that process and work with wood.

Education, Tours, Seminars
LIGNA will also offer dozens of guided tours and seminars, among them the first-ever expert guided tour of automation technology highlights at LIGNA.
Faced with ever-growing expectations in terms of efficiency and product individualization, furniture makers are increasingly turning to automated production for answers. It’s a growing trend – and one that cuts across all types of manufacturing, from one-off to mass production, and all classes of furniture makers, from niche craftsmen to mid-sized manufacturing firms.
The tours take about two hours each and cater to a range of target groups by providing key insights into several specific areas of automation technology. The information will be presented in the form of a series of 10-to 15-minute presentations given at the display stands of each tour’s participating exhibitors.
