IMA Schelling Group USA Highlights Process Integration at IWF Atlanta


IMA Schelling Group USA, a provider of sales and after-sales support of IMA and Schelling products for the woodworking industry, will introduce new machines at the International Woodworking Fair 2018 in Atlanta, August 22-25. Schelling’s booth (#5013) theme this year is “The Space Where Innovation Meets Automation” – a nod to their integration of a CR Onsrud router with a Schelling fh5 panel saw and Schelling vs Area Storage Retrieval System all connected via Eurosofts’ SquareOne MES software.

Also new at IWF, will be an integration of edgebander and return conveyor controlled automatically via barcode through SquareOne software. The IMA Novimat Compact R3 edgebander handles all aspects of edge processing. Coiled materials can be applied with PUR glue and the R3’s IMALUX laser. Included are additional units for smoothing operations. The Barbaric RTS 02 Return Conveyor automatically back-turns 90° or 180° and requires only one operator to manually insert panels, eliminating a second operator.

Other machines on display at IWF 2018 include:
