"Doors and Windows" Technology Days A Resounding Success3/21
Over 300 Door and Window manufacturers gathered in Rimini, Italy on February 5 – 7, 2015 to experience first-hand the technological innovation content and performance of the Xilog MAESTRO software
The “Doors and Windows Technology Days” delivered on its promise and turned out to be a huge success due to the training and idea exchange opportunities that took place for the many door and window manufacturers who descended upon Rimini from all over Italy and many foreign countries, particularly from North, Central and Eastern Europe, the United States, Japan, Malaysia and North Africa.
Over 300 businesses attended the event: from small artisans who wanted to familiarize themselves with numeric control technology to large businesses that were interested in larger production volumes, new finishes and higher overall process quality. All this was possible thanks to the presence of a wide range of solutions, which has always been the SCM Group's hallmark.
THE NEW “ACCORD 25 FX” PROCESSING CENTRE
“The new “Accord FX” range model”, stated Gianni Franchini, Manager of the SCM Group's Housing Business Unit, “was developed on the basis of the growing appetite for processing centres shown by artisans and small to medium enterprises. This is a model designed to deliver maximum performance with the lowest possible investment: a powerful, versatile processing centre with an extremely accelerated learning curve, thanks to software programs that are increasingly easier to use and program. The “Accord 25 fx”, boasts a high workpiece passage, a reduced footprint, greater ease of loading and uploading, high tool magazine capacity, maximum tool and working unit accessibility, coupled with utmost reliability. We have taken the best of the entire “Accord” range and have concentrated it in an “easy” machine,” concludes Franchini.
SOFTWARE PROGRAMS THAT CREATE NEW OPPORTUNITIES
During the “Doors and Windows Technology Days”, thanks to numerous special demonstrations of door and window specific software programs, visitors were able to experience the immediacy, precision and control with which the machine can “launch new work programs” to achieve finished products of impeccable quality. All this has been made possible by the “Xilog Maestro” processing centre software and its specific modules: “Maestro WD”, the parametric application software to design and manufacture doors and windows; the new “Maestro 3D”, developed to design and process three-dimensional surfaces; “Proview”, the simulator for the real-time visualization of workpiece and machine parts, and “MSL”, the interface that enables the dialogue with external management software, importing data directly into Xilog Maestro. These machines offer a full “package” that makes any types of machining operation extremely “easy”.
SMOOTHING AND FINISHING INNOVATIONS
With respect to finishing, the new Superfici “Mini” automatic “plug & spray” spraying machine, which is ideal for managing small batches, aroused everybody's interest. It is a complete, integrated solution that only requires a modest investment.
WORKING TOGETHER: ONGOING DIALOGUE
“During these three days,” added Mr Franchini, “we put on the table our experience, which is the result of our vocation for the wood and door and window segment in particular, and our ability to translate our know-how about door and window manufacturing processes into technologies, software programs and products that guarantee results. These results are only possible – I would like to stress it again– because of our choice of flanking our customers in their day-to-day activities and always being close to them, as this is the only way of finding new ideas and solutions together!”
