With 899 exhibitors booked and even more to come, IWF 2022 is on track to deliver more woodworking technology and design innovations.
The manufacturers you’ll see at IWF 2022 are engineering breakthrough innovations into the products you must have to keep your business moving forward. For four straight days this August IWF will deliver the industry’s newest business solutions and largest U.S. product mix in North American woodworking’s must-attend show.
Woodworking machinery makers have continuously improved the operation of equipment, with electronics simplifying set-up and operation. From freestanding floor machinery to highly sophisticated, high volume CNC production systems, visitors to IWF 2022 will find technology has improved in leaps and bounds in the four years since the last IWF. An added benefit: systems are easier for new employees to learn to operate, and often can be run by a single operator.
At IWF 2022, visitors will see three factors at play in new technologies:
Reduced labor requirements: infeed and offload systems, and materials transfer equipment lets just one individual manage jobs like lifting panels, and feeding CNC machines.
Digitalization is transforming individual freestanding machines—clamping stations, cut-off saws, edgebanders, and more—from manual mechanical set-up to electronic controllers, which are often able to recall frequently run jobs at the touch of a button.
Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) now links a mix of manual and equipment-focused work centers, or entire plant floors, with paperless job tickets with electronic versions. In some cases job-to-job changeovers are read right off the electronic job ticket by the new generation of advanced technology.
