Automation in the furniture industry

This is the domain of "Industry 4.0" – the science of staying ahead of the competition by having intelligent, integrated and technologically sophisticated production and logistics processes.


It's an increasingly important fact of modern life in all process-intensive industries such as furniture manufacturing, which is already one of the most heavily automated industries out there.

LIGNA 2015 is therefore putting a major spotlight on a whole range of innovative ideas and solutions for tailoring the integrated manufacturing paradigm of "Industry 4.0" to industries that process and work with wood.

The world's leading providers of automation solutions have been an integral part of the LIGNA exhibition lineup for many years. They are a diverse group, spanning everything from machine manufacturers to automation specialists, and they showcase solutions and expertise for all stages of the furniture value chain. We'll be running an extensive promotion campaign before and during LIGNA to highlight the pivotal role that automation plays in keeping the furniture industry flexible and competitive.
