Biesse - Master of materials returns to Ligna
[Jul 06, 2023]

Biesse returned to Ligna this year with a new look that expresses the company’s evolutionary journey.

“At Ligna we share how our work can unleash the potential of any material through an immersive installation that showcases creativity and technology,” says RaphaŽl Prati, chief marketing & communications officer. “Our customers create products that are increasingly multi-material and Biesse provides access to a vast range of skills through a single company and a single brand.”

The installation used physical and video elements to stimulate the visitor’s imagination and present multi-materiality. On one side, five stations presented the processes that allow the material to be transformed while, on the other, multimedia elements showed the result of the transformation, emphasising the potential of the processed materials themselves. The itinerary ended with a display featuring four finished products made from the different materials to showcase the theme chosen for this installation at Ligna 2023, the seat.

“Among the novelties, part of the stand was dedicated to previews, concepts and trends and presents an ever-growing selection of glimpses into the future,” comments Alberto Tuberti, product management director, Wood.

“We wanted to prime visitors to envision their own factory of tomorrow. Our showcases at Ligna 2023 included an edgebanding line with the new corporate colours and nomenclature and the Hydrogen Force System (HFS) hydrogen gluing system, a novelty in the field of edgebanding, designed with sustainable production in mind, that combines technological innovation and environmental performance.”

Turning to the machines and integrated lines available in the catalogue, the focus is on integrated automated solutions: specific machines shown in action are the Rover B FT HD machining centre, served by a robot, and the Rover A machining centre, integrated with Synchro and featuring a new, even more efficient and user-friendly configuration, guaranteeing limitless creativity. The Rover B FT HD nesting machining centre is in operation with the new ‘Dynamic Vacuum System’, which enables more efficient work by reducing electricity consumption and CO2 emissions.

“Ligna is an opportunity to confirm our partnership with Imos, a point of reference in the development and distribution of software for the furniture and woodworking industry,” says Ettore Vichi, chief regional officer EMEA and APAC.

“Thanks to a technological partner like Imos, we have raised the technological and digital level of our solutions, offering software specifically created for the design and construction of cabinets.”
