HOMAG: Many personal encounters during the month of July at the fair


One month, two fairs. SCHULER Consulting thanks you for your visit! Read more about DACH + HOLZ and HOLZHANDWERK here.

One month, two fairs: From 05.-08.07.2022 the DACH + HOLZ took place in Cologne. From July 12 to 15, 2022, the industry came together at HOLZHANDWERK in Nuremberg.

At HOLZHANDWERK, we presented digital value chain optimization live from the show and showed how smartphone technology can be used to seamlessly record production data and implement optimization measures with a extreme precision.

Capture data from any machine? It’s possible! Whether coffee machine or packaging machine from HOMAG – digital value stream optimization can be connected anywhere.

With Digital Value Stream Optimization, all data is consolidated into a single dashboard. The different screens show the interrelationships of the data and allow you to precisely implement optimization measures and monitor their effectiveness over the long term.

Under the motto “Experiment. See. Make”, the timber industry finally found itself in person in Nuremberg. This year, we were present on the HOMAG stand and presented Digital Value Stream Optimization live from the show.

“Digital value stream optimization is attracting great interest in the industry. Especially because, firstly, there are hardly any prerequisites in the IT infrastructure for the use of value stream optimization. numerical value and, secondly, there is no compromise in production in terms of machine types, manufacturers, year of manufacture, etc. The digital Westrom can be connected to anything Everything can be connected to the Westrom digital – from the manual workstation to the machine line and from the parking area of ​​the material trolley to the damping roller conveyor.” – Bastian Schulz, Industry 4.0 team leader

“Timber construction – from A to Z” – that was DACH + HOLZ

Based on its new trade fair concept “Timber construction from A to Z”, WEINMANN presented a complete range from machines to software and services. A live demonstration was the WALLTeq M-380 multifunction bridge in combination with a carpentry table. The software partner granIT presented the possibilities offered by its MES system for production planning and management. In the service area, in addition to the WEINMANN Service and Academy teams, our consultants from SCHULER Consulting were also available for meetings.

The letters “P” for partnership, “I” for investment and “M” for the German word “Mitarbeitende” (employees) were particularly highlighted in the new stand design and thus drew attention to priority topics in the industry.

  • Where can I find partners with whom I can succeed together?

  • Which investments are good, and when?

  • How to keep valuable employees in the company, what solutions exist for the shortage of qualified workers?

The topic “I like in investments” was particularly addressed in the interviews with our SCHULER team: Visitors from the timber construction sector are currently mainly looking for support with investment and strategy advice. The pressing questions here are how the next stage of growth can be mastered – whether by expanding the portfolio, e.g. entering item production, increasing production (greenfield/brownfield planning) or analyzing how current resources can be used efficiently. These are questions that companies of all sizes are bringing to the table. In this sense, the “I” for us also means an individual solution – the basis for lasting success.

One month, two fairs

Rich in impressions and time for personal encounters, two intense and exciting weeks are coming to an end. We thank you for your visit and the good discussions! We are already looking forward to the next time.
