Innovative and Automated Wood Working Technologies in WMF 2018


Wood has been used in furniture making and architecture for a long period. A new breed of highly sophisticated timber products and leading-edge technologies has ushered in a new era for timber. Wooden products are now more premium and customized. In addition, policies of energy saving are tightened in many places. Consumers require higher standards of living, product customization, safety and environment protection. All these lead to big challenges of development in the value chain of wood architecture and products, in terms of consumption reduction, intelligent production and customer services. Thus, manufacturers of different layers in the industry have to acquire more equipment and techniques throughout different processes of making wood into panel boards or furniture, in order to upgrade the businesses.


To help processors and manufacturers enhance their productivity and competitiveness, the Shanghai International Furniture Machinery & Woodworking Machinery Fair (WMF) will gather a full spectrum of woodworking machinery, equipment, green and intelligent solutions. In addition, zones will be set up in the fair with different themes and product categories, in order to facilitate visitors to visit and source according to their needs. The fair will be grandly staged on 10-13 September 2018 in collaboration with CIFF (Shanghai) at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, China.
