Ligna 2017: Towards Industrie 4.0

Under the general heading of “Integrated Manufacturing”, LIGNA features an array of intelligent and integrated manufacturing systems, accompanied by innovative concepts and strategies for incorporating these into the value-adding networks of the wood – working and timber processing industry.

Integrated manufacturing is now used intensively in both series and small-batch production, where extreme customization is increasing.

LIGNA is the perfect platform for exploring this highly complex topic area through a combination of accessibly presented information and examples of practical applications, brought to life for visitors in guided tours and talks by industry experts.

Other important news for the month of April 2017 is as follows

We would like to thank all our clients who attended our two in – house shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg.  We were overwhelmed by the success of these events and look forward to releasing the new technology to our clients in this manner in the future.

The winners of the three in-house show visitor’s draw for Freud tooling prizes were:-


R20,000 : Moa Bamboo

R10,000 : BM Interiors

R5,000 : Wood Savvy

The two company’s who drew the above names from our visitor’s competition (as one draw was not a manufacturer) were:-

QuickFit Cupboards, who receives a gift R2,500 worth of Freud Tooling for his efforts of ensuring the draw was independent;

Concept-Y, who receives a gift of R1,000 worth of Freud tooling for his independent draw of the 3rd name to replace that of the non-manufacturer drawn in the first draw.

Congratulations and thanks for visiting our in-house shows.
