Our portal also has a special catalogues section to allow professionals and operators in the sector to view in a practical way all the catalogues relating to the various products (furniture hardware, upholstery materials, furniture paints, etc.). In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product. The video section, on the other hand, presents numerous video interviews given by professionals and manufacturers that report news, insights and informative content on the best technologies in the sector.

The technologies of Scm Group to the 25th edition of Xylexpo

For small wood working workshops and large industries

Scm Group, the leading group in the design, production and distribution of technologically advanced solutions for the furniture industry and wood-working companies, will be the protagonist of the 25th edition of Xylexpo, which will be held at Fiera Milano-Rho in Milan from 24 to 28 May 2016.  The attendance to the fair sanctions once again the importance and strategic roles of the Italian, and European, market for the Rimini-based group, which operates in 120 countries. “We want to reaffirm our global leadership position and, at the same time, promote our Italian spirit ”, explained Luigi De Vito, Scm Group Machine Division Manager. “We have chosen to take part in Xylexpo to give a strong message to the market and to continue supporting the development of the Italian manufacturing technology industry, a globally recognised excellence and the reference point for wood manufacturing. For over 60 years we have supplied the widest and most innovative range of solutions and advanced systems, designed for those working with wood and other materials, such as plastic and composite materials and we want to maintain our guiding role in the sector”.
At Xylepxo, Scm will present the latest developments of the group and its brands in a large exhibition space of over 2600 square metres. These will include integrated solutions and modular cell systems, which reflect the intelligent innovation approach, a direct interpretation of the “Smart Manufacturing“. In particular we will present integrated production processes for machining panels and solid wood, all “intelligently flexible”, and capable of combining different levels of profitability/productivity, utmost customisation and extremely easy reconfiguration possibilities. The aim is to provide the industry with solutions for productions with shorter time-to-market, to increase competitiveness on the markets and at the same time allow for a greater level of specialisation.  The technologies presented by the Scm Group are therefore designed to optimize and facilitate the creativity of small wood working workshops and large industries, supporting them in the process towards “mass customization”.
The software, a centrally important aspect to the “Smart Manufacturing” logic, will be one of the strong points at Xylexpo. Scm Group will bring to the show all its know-how and a suite of state of the art, and continuously evolving, programs, designed to guarantee the complete use of the machines’ functions and achieve a more agile and customised production and industrial process.
