LIGNA 2015: World’s No. 1

LIGNA reflects rapid strides made by Industry 4.0

Live demonstrations of furniture production in simulated factory settings were right on target for LIGNA visitors, offering them a first-hand glimpse of the benefits of integrated manufacturing. There was also a wealth of information to support attendees in their future purchasing decisions, with exhibitor presentations focusing strongly on the aspects of flexibility and economic efficiency.

Wood Industry Summit a success from the outset

LIGNA’s status as an international networking hub for the industry was further enhanced by the Wood Industry Summit. With its mix of discussion and presentations, the summit proved an instant hit with its target audience.

Exhibitors and trade visitors used the forum – which attracted international participants from industry, research and government – as a valuable source of leads for project deals in high-growth markets.

"Surprisingly Versatile" meets with keen interest

LIGNA concentrated on a completely different aspect in the special presentation entitled "Surprisingly Versatile." Here the main focus was not on wood; instead, exhibitors showcased the flexibility of their technologies for dry-machining many different kinds of materials.

The spectrum ranged from plastic machining technology to equipment for processing alloys and composites. And thanks to targeted ads placed in related publications, professionals with backgrounds in interior finishing, building materials and the automotive industry also made their way to Hannover.
