Sophisticated solutions from IMA Schelling

The first flexible high-performance CombiCut cutting centre was put into service successfully at a German kitchen manufacturer in the summer of 2018

The IMA Schelling Group is a reliable provider of solutions for sophisticated and innovative wood processing plants and a leading supplier of batch-size-1 work cells for a digital, fully automated networked production.

In close cooperation its two sister companies, IMA Klessmann and Schelling Anlagenbau, it develops and manufactures intelligent high-end solutions.

Two years ago, the IMA Schelling Group presented the first common product: the flexible high-performance CombiCut cutting centre at Ligna 2017. This pilot system has been in service successfully at a German kitchen manufacturer since then.

The customer reached the project targets and is very satisfied with the innovative technology and another CombiCut is soon being delivered. The trend towards fully automatic work cell solutions continues and  there is a great need for flexibly usable robot solutions and intelligent automation concepts.

The young robotics and plant control portfolios are  also into this and for some time now the number of robots per job has been increasing gradually, whereas so far enquiries for robots have only been processed rarely. Also, the robotic solutions themselves are getting more and more complex and powerful.

The IPC.Net plant control system, which was developed by the group, is becoming increasingly popular with customers. Its main application is individualized batch-size-1 production. But the benefits of intuitive operation and part tracking can also be seen in batch production and small automation applications.
