Homag and Grenzebach to enter into strategic partnership

28/03/2018 - 09:10 AM

The Homag Group has joined forces with the Grenzebach Group, leading specialist for the automation of industrial processes. The companies have agreed intensive cooperation in the field of automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

Their aim is to offer the woodworking industry smart solutions for the flexible transport of workpieces between processing machines and cells. The Homag Group has extensive industry expertise and knows customers' processes and requirements inside out, while Grenzebach adds experience in closing automation gaps in production logistics using AGVs.

Pekka Paasivaara, CEO of the Homag Group, says: "Together with Grenzebach, we can develop smart material flow solutions and even better fulfill our customers' requirements for increased flexibility in their production."

The two partners already presented their first successfully completed project at HOLZ-HANDWERK trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany. At its stand, the Homag Group showcased the first cell that works completely autonomously. The fully automated processing machines are linked via an automated guided vehicle (AGV) made by Grenzebach, which takes care of parts transport and interim buffering.

The Homag Group is the world's leading supplier of integrated solutions for production in the woodworking industry and woodworking shops.
