New machinery on show will include those in the CNC machining centres range, which will form the basis of a dedicated training event. Also, Cargo – an innovative automatic system for loading and unloading doors and panels – and Maestro lab – the new CAD-CAM programming software – will also be demonstrated.

Cargo will be integrated with the morbidelli m200 pods&rails machining centre – a fully automated cell that requires no operator supervision – which is unique in the market due to its ability to continuously load and unload pieces in masked time, while the machine performs drilling and routing operations. This exclusive solution allows for maximum efficiency by avoiding manual work phases and associated costs and downtime, in addition to an unprecedented ease of use as both the machining centre and Cargo are directly managed by the Maestro active HMI interface.

Software & services

With technological innovation being a core element of the SCM experience, software and services are increasingly the main element of a continuous and shared relationship with the client. Maestro lab is the new cutting-edge CAD/CAM programming software for both office and machine use. Intuitive and dynamic, it allows the user to easily transform an idea into a finished product, thanks to intelligent and technologically advanced programming functions and more than 150 pre-integrated apps; this means that information can be sent from office to factory in record time, thus ensuring a fast user experience.

The contextualised and continuous exchange of information from machine to cloud – made possible due to the IoT Maestro Connect platform – allows SCM to quickly answer customer questions and give specific advice; this supports operators and maintenance workers with specific challenges and needs for autonomy when using, carrying out maintenance, and programming both machine and software.

A specific area created inside the Technology Center will demonstrate how data is transformed into bespoke assistance and advisory services – which are both proactive and predictive in nature – with a view to guaranteeing operational continuity for the client thanks to the most evolved digital technologies and level of service offered by the SCM Service team.

New automated spare parts warehouse

SCM continues to invest in its excellent customer service and during the event, Autostore will be opened – a new automated spare parts warehouse. This innovation has allowed SCM to increase code pick-up speed and increase the number of orders handled within a 24 hour period, which equates to a 26% rise. Along with an energy consumption of under 0.1kWh per robot, this truly confirms the Group’s sustainability focus.

Within this, ergonomics and ease of use also come to the fore, and all machine operators can benefit from the new eye-M control panel, which not only makes work easier but also offers modular programming and higher calculation power.

Other technological innovations – furniture industry

The new SCM Technology Center will see flexible cells integrated with the unmanned AMR shuttles – for beam saws – the gabbiani gt2 with robot for loading and unloading; for edgebanding – stefani cell E with gantry panel return system; for drilling and dowelling – morbidelli cx220, which can be used with either robot only or partially manned. Another highlight will be a beam saw and nesting cell for batch 1 with flexstore hp automatic warehouse and robot for unloading finished pieces, small pieces and waste; the gabbiani p80 panel saw and morbidelli x200 nesting machining centre, which are integrated into the same warehouse.
