LIGNA 2019: Number One Platform For The Wood-Based Industries

May 27th to 31st, 2019, Hannover, Germany

LIGNA 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for woodworking and wood processing plant, machinery and tools will be taking place in Hannover  from 27th to 31st May 2019. Organised by Deutsche Messe AG and VDMA e.V, LIGNA 2019 will occupy some 130,000 square meters (1.4 million sq. ft.) of net display space, spread across 10 exhibition halls and the open-air site at the Hannover Exhibition Center.

The primary wood industry is an integral part of  LIGNA and will feature prominently at the show. All the leading providers of plant and machinery for the primary wood industry have already registered for LIGNA 2019“. Said  Ms.Geeta Bisht,  Director, Hannover Milano Fairs India Pvt. Ltd. Along with the exhibiton, the organisers will also host LIGNA.Forum, Wood industry Summit, Future Workshop for Forestry & Wood“ – the innovations platform for the forestry and wood industry. There will also be Guided tour on Sawmill Technology – Innovations and Trends“, 14th German Logging Championship, Outdoor demonstration site for forestry technology, added Mr. Ingo Bette - Marketing Director, VDMA e.V.(German Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers’ Association, Frankfurt a.M./Germany) 

There’s an impressive participation from the Indian industry as well at LIGNA 2019. Leading Indian companies in the wood industry viz., Industrial Boilers, Master Handlers, Matrix Cutting Tools and HR Industries are participating in LIGNA 2019 while many have industry leaders are visiting the fair.  

Few of the highlights of LIGNA 2019 includes the following :

Forestry 4.0. In today’s forestry industry, digitization starts among the trees, with all processes, from crop to log yard, now fully integrated. Large scale machines, such as harvesters and forwarders, now have onboard computers and are networked with each other. This is Forestry 4.0, a topic that will also be covered by the displays on the open-air site in front of the pavilion. Highlights here include displays of log-yard data flows and data processing. There will also be displays of technologies dedicated to hazard detection and prevention, safety and rescue for forestry workers. Topics here include “Natural Disasters in the Forest”, “Precision Forestry” and “Forest First-aid and Survival”.

Guided Tour On “Sawmill Technology – Innovations and Trends”
In 2019, for the very first time, LIGNA will offer a Guided Tour (in German and English) for visitors with an interest in sawmill technology. Faced with dwindling wood resources, sawmill operators are increasingly looking for technologies that enable them to efficiently process sawn timber into value-added products. 

Manufacturers of sawmilling machinery are rising to this challenge with new high-tech, high-efficiency systems for maximizing sawn timber yield and detecting key characteristics in individual timbers and logs.

Wood Industry Summit and “Future Workshop for Forestry & Wood” – the innovations platform for the forestry and wood industry

“Access to Resources and Technology” is the focus theme for the 3rd Wood Industry Summit. Organized by Deutsche Messe in partnership with the German Forestry Council (KWF), it is an international dialogue and technology showcase comprising a forum, lounge and exhibition area. Its purpose: to help visitors access new growth markets. For the first time, the summit will also feature the “Future Workshop for Forestry & Wood” showcase – a group pavilion for startups that is inspired by the German government’s “Charter for Wood 2.0” policy.

14th German Logging Championship
In 2019, for the first time, Deutsche Messe and the German Woodsmen’s Championships Association (VWMD) will be co-staging the German Logging Championships – the “Formula 1” of forestry skills – on the open-air site at LIGNA.  At the 14th German Logging Championship, Germany’s best 100 or so forestry professionals will demonstrate their chainsaw skills under the watchful eye of an expert panel of judges. The contestants’ endurance, handling skills and precision will be put to the test in five disciplines: tree felling, chain fitting, combined cut bucking, precision bucking and delimbing.

Energy from Wood
The wood industry uses a lot of energy, so efficiency and cost reduction are key priorities. The good news is that wood industry plant operators can achieve major cost reductions and efficiency gains by generating their own power from their own waste wood, chips and sawdust, and by utilizing waste heat and harnessing cogeneration. The Energy from Wood showcase at LIGNA 2019 will show them how. Located in halls 25 and 26, on the open-air site and in pavilions 32, 33 and 35, the showcase will present technologies that wood-industry manufacturers can use to recover process energy and re-use it for heating and electric generation.
