Digitization as the Driver of Innovation,
As a driver of innovation, digitization is bringing about a fundamental change in the entire value-added chain of the woodworking industry for all those involved – from SMEs to industrial enterprises. LIGNA, too, is focusing on digital change, continuing the successful focus themes of previous years.
Industrial plant providers are increasingly opting for robotics systems for materials handling, human-machine interaction and surfacing functions. Key themes include cloud-based data management, standardization and interfaces, building information modeling (BIM), timber flow management and augmented and virtual reality applications.
Digitalization is also opening up major opportunities in the skilled trades, both when it comes to meeting the rising demand for custom solutions and the implementation of complete concepts.
