All the latest from SCM at LIGNA.Innovation Network.
SCM confirms its partnership with Ligna for the new digital trade fair, where it will be presenting its latest technologies for the widest range of application fields in the woodworking industry.
SCM confirms its participation in LIGNA.Innovation Network, the digital event organised by Deutsche Messe, from 27 to 29 September 2021. After more than sixty years of partnership with the Hannover event, SCM continues to network with all the key players in the production chain, stay close to its business partners, even remotely, and illustrate the variety of new technologies it has to offer for 2021, designed for the widest application fields in the industry.
New developments resulting from consistent and continuous investments in R&D. SCM's technological innovation projects continued even in 2020, with a 20% increase in new R&D projects. SCM will benefit from further investments in the period 2021-2024, with an overall allocation of 100 million Euro.
Market investments are also steadily continuing in order to guarantee an ever spreading international presence for SCM. Directly-managed branches have been further increased and reinforced, with a view to improving customer service both at the consultation and sales stage, as well as after-sales technical support, for a service that is with the customer every step of the way. This is clear both from the upgrading of pre-existing sales structures as well as the recent opening of new branches in strategic markets like Turkey and India.
These consistent and continuous investments in technological innovation and markets have also contributed to SCM's excellent balance sheets for the first half of 2021. The Group has recorded a turnover growth into double figures and record results even on orders, way beyond the budget forecast for the period. Also of significance is the increase in engineering projects for high automation plants or entire "turnkey" factories, proof of the excellent trend recorded by the entire woodworking industry globally.
ALL THE LATEST AT LIGNA.INNOVATION NETWORK
Digitalisation, automation and eco-sustainability are the three main features found in all the solutions that SCM will present at the digital event. From stand-alone technologies to plants, all the latest products from the Group have been designed to further increase the productivity of our business partners, simplifying their everyday work even in flexible and more complex processes and keeping costs down, by reducing the amount of space occupied in the factory, machining times and margins of error.
The new Smart&Human Factory is an example of this and will be at the centre of discussion during one of the in-depth Forums at LIGNA.Innovation Network: SCM's user-friendly digital factory expands to further meet the demands of "batch 1" production. Automated flexible, modular and easily reconfigurable cells, integrated by industrial articulated and cooperative robots and intelligent unmanned shuttles, programmable according to the production unit layout, capable of moving and working alongside the operator in total safety.
