Homag UK’s Open House, taking place from November 3 – 5, 2015 at Castle Donington will be treated to a showcase of the Homag Group’s latest automated solutions after an 18-month investment.
Simon Brooks, sales and marketing director for Homag UK, said: “The aim has been to bring all the various brands within the group together to deliver a more joined up approach for the customer.”
He added: “All Homag machinery can be driven by Homag’s own software and the PowerTouch control panel makes it easy for operators to move from one machine to another without having to undertake specific training.”
At the Open House showcase in November, visitors will be able to experience new innovative solutions no matter what their level – including entry-level productions.
“On the CNC front, we will have a nesting cell featuring the Weeke Vantage 100,” added Mr Brooks. “This can take a full size sheet and split it out into small parts, drill it and process it. The cell will include Weeke’s ABD 260, a vertical and horizontal drilling and dowel insertion solution. This will be linked to Vantage 100 so it is a one-man operated cell that improves efficiency and speeds up production.”
As well as this, Homag UK will also be demonstrating their 5-axis which is run by their own woodWOP 7 software.
