SCM is confirmed as a solid group which continues to grow and innovate, investing in its industrial sites in Italy to increase its production capacity and further enhance its relationship with customers. One clear example is the new Technology Center created as part of an expansion and modernisation programme at the Headquarters in Rimini, which will be unveiled from 28 to 30 September 2023 with a Grand Opening aimed at companies and stakeholders from the entire woodworking industry at global level.
This 4,000 square metres space is the new digital home of woodworking innovation: every detail has been designed to offer the widest range of technologies and services and provide integrated, connected, flexible, more sustainable and optimised processes at each stage of secondary wood processing.
The event will be an opportunity to discover the latest solutions developed by the Group which combine the strong technological skill for the production of solutions for furniture, doors and windows, timber construction and artisan joinery with the development of software and services, to accompany the client at each stage of their production process.
However, if it is true that the technology remains the heart of SCM’s experience, the software and services are increasingly the guarantor element of a continuous and shared relationship with the client. Maestro lab is the new cutting-edge CAD/CAM programming software for both the office and machine use. Intuitive and dynamic, it allows you to easily transform an idea into a finished product, thanks to intelligent and technologically advanced programming functions and more than 150 already integrated apps. So, from the office to the factory in a flash via an enjoyable and fast user experience.
The contextualised and continuous exchange of information from the machine to the cloud thanks to the IoT Maestro Connect platform means SCM can provide clients with rapid access to answers and specific advice which will support the operators and maintenance workers with their challenges and needs for autonomy when using, carrying out maintenance and programming the machine and software. A specific area created inside the Technology Center will demonstrate how data are transformed into bespoke assistance and advisory services of a proactive and predictive nature with a view to guaranteeing the client operational continuity thanks to the most evolved digital technologies and constant attention by the SCM Service team.
SCM continues to invest in the excellence of its customer service and, for the event, will open the doors to Autostore, its new automated spare parts warehouse. This innovation has allowed SCM to increase fivefold the pick-up speed of the codes and increase the number of orders handled within 24h by 26%. All this with an energy consumption of less than 0.1 kWh per robot, confirming the Group’s focus on sustainability.
