HOMAG will show the latest 'laserTec-Next Generation' at LIGNA.
The HOMAG Group will once again unveil a wide selection of new technology innovations at LIGNA and among them will be the latest in edgebanding for workshops and networked batch size 1 solutions.
The diversity of panel and edging types continues to increase – as are the demands made on individual furniture production. To address these demands today, cabinetmakers, joiners and industrial producers require edgebanding machines with the greatest possible flexibility using innovative technologies.
HOMAG will be unveiling just that technology at LIGNA, in the form of stand-alone machines – integrated into workshop concepts and flexible production cells – and in a batch size 1 plant. One focus at the fair will be on edgebanding. Here, HOMAG is now offering new zero joint technologies and PU gluing technology across every performance category.
Zero joint and PU in every performance category
HOMAG will show a tandem plant for edgebanding with PU in batch size 1. The new plant concept for flexible production of kitchen elements comprises two K 610 edgebanding machines. The core is formed by two power jointing-trimming units mounted one behind the other. These are equipped with hydraulic tools for highly precise, splinter-free work piece trimming.
The gluing section is capable of processing 48 different edging types in automatic alternation without manual intervention.
The zero joint experts at HOMAG have also taken the experience gathered from several hundred supplied laser Tec systems and used it as the basis for further development of this proven technique. The result: “laserTec – Next Generation” which goes into series production following LIGNA 2017. The unit is available in two performance categories and offers zero joint quality for industry both in batch size 1 and also in series production.
“laserTec – Next Generation” will offer maximum edge quality for entry-level users via entry-level machines. But that’s just the beginning, HOMAG will also show many other innovations ranging from edgebanders equipped with a new hand-held, wireless terminal and new profile trimming via a multiple-stage unit to new double-end tanners for flooring production featuring a modular configuration and a more rigid, stable design.
