The announcement Italian company BIESSE made at a press preview event for this year’s LIGNA in Hannover shows the supplier of innovative woodworking machinery has some big ideas up its sleeve. As it celebrates its 50th anniversary, BIESSE is unveiling its latest innovations in the field of robotization and technological digitization at the world’s leading trade fair for wood processing tools, machines and systems. For instance, the company's 6,000 m2 stand is showcasing three automated process solutions that illustrate the journey from raw material to finished product. On top of that, BIESSE will also present several integrated production lines and various robotized cells capable of providing incomparable levels of customization, modularity and flexibility, which are fundamental to contemporary production.

What links all these solutions is a new business strategy that seeks to place people at the center of any machine development. Thanks to years of investment in services and technology designed to help develop digital factories, and guided by the Automaction concept - the principle that perfectly describes the tangible impact of BIESSE solutions on automated and interconnected production - BIESSE is increasingly acknowledging and reinforcing the bond between man and robot. It's able to do this, not just by showcasing numerous robot-controlled solutions at its stand, but also by demonstrating how people can benefit from using them. "We believe in the future and in the work of those who have played a crucial role in BIESSE's international growth over the past 50 years. This is why we want to dedicate our 50th anniversary to the future and to those who made BIESSE the Group it is today," says Raphaël Prati, Corporate Marketing Communications Director at BIESSE.
