At this year’s International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, Hymmen is presenting its latest innovations in industrial digital printing along with its other proven plant technologies for the wood-based materials industry: from liquid coating and laminating lines to press technology, flanked by handling equipment, service and plant control.
Brand new is the Industry Intelligence solution smart2i from Hymmen. “SATURN Digital Prining Line – a breakthrough in manufacturing digital decor paper” is the slogan with which Hymmen welcomes its visitors to Booth C1847.
The expert for background information on this new technology is Sebastian Bazyk, Area Sales Manager at Hymmen, who also gave a presentation on the topic entitled “Digital printing of decor paper – the whole value chain at your site” at the Education Conference on Tuesday, Aug. 23.
As an alternative to digital printing with water-based inks, wood-based panel manufacturers can bring expertise for digital design of their surfaces in-house with UV-drying technology: whether digitally printed decor or digitally printed structure – both are covered by the JUPITER Digital Printing Lines from Hymmen, which have won several innovation awards.
With the aid of film footage showing the digital printing line in operation and product samples, visitors to the trade show booth will be able to see for themselves the benefits of the technology, just as several American companies have already done. Three of these digital printing systems with Lacquer Embossing (DLE plus) technology are currently being manufactured for U.S. customers at Hymmen in Bielefeld.
Hymmen staff at the booth will also be happy to answer questions about Hymmen’s other equipment technologies (liquid coating, presses and laminating lines). Hymmen’s double belt presses can now even be called the “grandes dames” of wood-based material technologies – even after more than 40 years on the market, they are still as much in demand as ever. This is demonstrated by the 6 plants alone that Hymmen currently has in its order book.
Hymmen’s recently developed Industry Intelligence solution “smart2i” (www.smart2i.cloud), which can be integrated into both new and existing machines or plants, offers special added value for all plant types alike: After all, an outstanding success factor of any technology is ensuring the reproducible quality of the surfaces produced.
To ensure this desired quality in the long term, Hymmen has developed a cloud-based quality control system that enables the manufacturer to monitor all production parameters in real time, store them in the cloud, analyze them at any time, and counteract deviations in surface quality in a timely manner. The Hymmen team welcomes its visitors to booth C1847 to provide more detailed information on all topics.
