Overview
The Biesse digital factory at LIGNA 2019: a winning alliance between man and robot.

At LIGNA, Biesse is presenting the future of Industry 4.0: 6000 square metres where automation and interconnection become an even more effective spur and bring to life the Automaction concept - Biesse's constant innovative spirit.

Three completely automated process solutions, from raw materials to the finished product, will highlight the results of an evolved production system that's attentive and efficient, personalised and flexible. For this reason, Biesse has set up the Testimonial in Automaction project to establish close collaboration with three top design names who work at international level and share the same values and production principles.

One fully automated solution will be able to produce up to 1,500 panels per shift. Thanks to its collaboration with CUBO DESIGN, Biesse can demonstrate how to produce a complete kitchen with flexible, top-performing systems, displaying its production line directly on the stand.

The second automated solution is the result of collaboration with LAGO, an Italian design brand that makes furniture for every area in the home. Up to 1,000 panels can be produced during every shift with this product for the living/sleeping area - a solution that brings together the latest ideas in flexibility with regards to sectioning and robot-assisted machines. The third solution will produce up to 600 panels per shift, and is especially recommended for manufacturers of bathroom furniture and shop fittings. Emerging from the collaboration with BMT BAGNI, it highlights the advantages of a company that fully exploits all the opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution, including machines with additional automatic systems, robots and software for integrated production management.

The personnel on the stand will demonstrate a total of 49 solutions aimed at all the manufacturing companies, from large-scale with notable production volumes to businesses looking for flexibility and personalisation and small firms that can be transformed into real “smart factories”.

Highlights
BIESSE AT LIGNA 2019

The future is already here.

Biesse will also be presenting its ROS (Robotically Operated System) integrated robots for handling panels, ensuring efficiency and versatility without the need for the operator's intervention. The ROS robots will provide support for the sectioning, boring, smoothing and CNC machines.

In the search for optimum finish quality, lower consumption and easy use, Biesse is presenting Ray Force System - the revolutionary new method for applying edgebanding strips to shaped panels thanks to an exclusive technique based on the melting of a reactive layer with the use of infrared lamps.

Another solution on display will be the Rover machining centre, always at the top in terms of reliability but now enhanced even further thanks to the new FPS tables that improve speed and productivity. Edgebanding discovers new levels of compactness with the Akron 1100, a new automatic single-sided edgebanding machine for artisans and small businesses.

In Hall 11 visitors will also be able to get a close-up view of technologies dedicated to the construction world: alongside the Uniteam E-MIX, a machining centre specifically designed for CLT machining, LIGNA will also see the début of the Uniteam RC, a new entry-level machining centre for beams and partitions for creating prefabricated panels and frame structures. Ideal for small- and medium-sized firms that want to respond to the most complex demands of modern design.

The stand will rotate around the Digital Hub - a link between the software packages - where visitors can examine the true heart of the applications installed on Biesse technologies: from SOPHIA to B_CABINET, from B_PROCESS and B_AVANT to B_SUITE and OPTIPLANNING, the hub of the digital connections of the platforms will be on show in the dedicated area, with specialised technical personnel on hand.

One unmissable feature is SOPHIA, the IoT service platform, whose new functions focus on predictability with the aim of improving the personalised interaction with the customer on the basis of the machine, and reducing assistance times even further.

ELLIPSE & LEON

Creativity, software, technology: design becomes art.

Masterpieces made of wood, natural sculptures forged by human creativity and the millimetric precision of technology. Ellipse and Leon are two unique pieces, exhibited as part of the day of Italian design in Mumbai this past March, and now on show at Biesse booth at Ligna exhibition. Designed by the Indian Bram Woodcrafting Studio, these design objects are the result of the combination between the power of Rover A CNC machining centre and bSolid software.

50 YEARS PERFORMANCE

Il Suono Nascosto: transforming noise into harmony.

Machining centres at the service of art and creativity, no longer simply manufacturing tools, but protagonists in their own right taking centre stage. The result is a symphonic composition like nothing else in the world: not violins, percussion or wind instruments, but Biesse machines. At Ligna, Biesse will celebrate the company's 50th anniversary with an exceptional performance: Il Suono Nascosto (The Hidden Sound) is a research project focused on the sound of Biesse, which highlights the relationship between man and technology, and is designed to reveal the "hidden/emotional" side of machines. The study, which is the result of a project in collaboration with Umanesimo Artificiale and NeuNau, aims to enhance the internal sound of machines, which is not audible to the human ear: accordingly, it will unveil a degree of expression never seen before, translating the power of movement into sound power, and transforming noise into music.

MAKE MAGAZINE

Make 50 Years: future makes history.

A special edition of MAKE, the magazine that presents Biesse Group to the world, is also set to be launched at LIGNA. The new edition will feature a new headline and refined but modern graphics, and will tell the story of the past 50 years of the company, as well as the 50 years that await us. CINQUANTA, intentionally left in Italian, is the key word around which this special edition is centred, and as ever, the magazine will be available throughout the world during the trade fairs and events in which Biesse Group takes part, celebrating history and imagining the future through a fascinating combination of interviews and customer stories which share a focus on the future, in addition to reflections from the experts, engineers, architects and designers who are already shaping this future.
