1,567 exhibitors showcased their leading-edge solutions, technologies and innovative production equipment on over 120,000 square meters of display space
The next LIGNA, which runs from 22 to 26 May 2017, will feature a revamped, more visitor-centric layout of themes.
LIGNA 2015 was an outstanding success for all parties concerned, featuring an impressive array of innovative technologies and production scenarios, large-scale machinery and the rapid strides made by Industry 4.0 in the woodworking and wood processing industry.
Some 1,567 exhibitors showcased their leading-edge solutions, technologies and innovative production equipment on over 120,000 square meters of display space. There was a clear focus on integrated, high-efficiency manufacturing. The new Wood Industry Summit was an instant success, and the new "Surprisingly Versatile" theme also met with keen interest."
Outstanding international turnout 96,000 trade visitors attended LIGNA to witness the latest innovations and place new orders.
LIGNA’s status as an international networking hub for the industry was further enhanced by the Wood Industry Summit. With its mix of discussion and presentations, the summit proved an instant hit with its target audience.
Exhibitors and trade visitors used the forum – which attracted international participants from industry, research and government – as a valuable source of leads for project deals in high-growth markets.
"Surprisingly Versatile" meets with keen interest
LIGNA concentrated on a completely different aspect in the special presentation entitled "Surprisingly Versatile." Here the main focus was not on wood; instead, exhibitors showcased the flexibility of their technologies for dry-machining many different kinds of materials.
The spectrum ranged from plastic machining technology to equipment for processing alloys and composites. And thanks to targeted ads placed in related publications, professionals with backgrounds in interior finishing, building materials and the automotive industry also made their way to Hannover.
Under the slogan "Surprisingly versatile", machine tool manufacturers at LIGNA are showcasing their machines' potential for uses beyond conventional wood processing. Established machine tool manufacturers are increasingly developing products for everything from metalworking to high-tech processing for companies in the automotive, facade, yacht building and aerospace industries
Interest is high wherever machining, sawing, drilling and sanding is needed. Solutions for processing plastic and composite materials are particularly widespread, with their rising popularity driven by today's highly developed CNC 5-axis machining technology. Today's woodworking machines can do everything that is required of modern manufacturing in other sectors, and very efficiently.
Whether plastics, composite materials or non-ferrous metals, modern woodworking machines and tools can master any material without any major adjustments. Existing 5-axis technology offers full processing in shorter times and with fewer work steps, because a reduced number of processing assemblies carry out the production task and eliminate setup periods. And there is almost no limit to the possible shapes and sizes.
