Industry 4.0 at Ligna 2015


 Networked Production, Industry 4.0, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Internet of Things, you name it, all these are buzz words for the future wood working industries.

The world wide market for woodworking and wood processing machinery is worth an estimated nine billion euros and it's on show in Hannover in just a few days' time.

Whether it's kitchen cabinets, doors, windows or roof trusses - if it's made of wood, it's made using machines of the kind on show in Hannover at LIGNA 2015.

"Process optimization. Automation. Product Individualization. They're the big themes at LIGNA 2015," said Dr. Joech Köckler, a member of the Managing Board of Deutsche Messe, the company that organizes LIGNA.

Companies that work with wood are working smarter as they embrace the automated, connected world of Industry 4.0. They are looking for ways of making their production processes more efficient.
