Product-Highlight DACH+HOLZ 2024

Expertise and innovation for the Timber construction

The stars of the SCM stand will be the OIKOS XS cnc machining centre and the new Maestro active beam&wall HMI software. SCM is at DACH+HOLZ International with state-of-the-art innovations and a rich programme of technical demonstrations and insights.

OIKOS XS is the most versatile model in the Oikos range, cnc machining centre for timber construction ideal for companies looking for high speed and precision combined with a small footprint and low cost.

It is suitable for the production of straight beams, prefabricated walls, trusses, roofs and blockhouses, i.e. structural elements requiring both very fast operations such as cutting, and more complex operations such as drilling, routing, dovetails and slots for hardware, on pieces that can have a maximum length of 16 metres, a maximum width of 450 mm and a maximum thickness of 240 mm.  

The speed of execution is one of the main advantages, because the work piece feed rates can increase up to 3 m/sec. Furthermore, combined movements of the operating units cut down unproductive time due to axis repositioning.

OIKOS XS enables the coverage of the work piece 6 faces. Several operating units strategically positioned within the work area, resulting in a high degree of configurability to meet every specific customer need. Another plus is the innovative 4+1 axes revolver unit with differentiated speeds for each tool which allows for a unique finish.

The machine also stands out for its machining precision, which is achieved by extremely stiff clamping system for work piece feed, horizontal and vertical pressure rollers located close to the work area, a dynamic work piece support system active during processing and a laser probe to realize precise dovetails.

Maestro active beam&wall is the new human-machine interface software dedicated to machining centres for timber construction, which offers numerous functions in a simple and fast way. 
Multi-project: it allows the production of elements of the same section but which are part of different projects to be optimised on the same raw bars, in order to minimise material waste. The optimisation process is fully automatic.

3D visualisation: possibility of exploring the workpiece and taking measurements. On the 3D element, the tool paths of the machining units are traced in real-time.

Complete job management: management of routine maintenance, machine alarms, work shifts, printing of labels and creation of production reports... these are just some of the functions that the software makes available to the customer.

Advanced user management: different levels of authorisation can be enabled for each machine operator depending on their capabilities, in order to protect the machining centre from incorrect manipulation.

The new version of the HMI software is characterised by a totally renewed graphic interface aligned with that of the latest generation of software. Maestro active beam&wall is based on Maestro active, the HMI software adopted by the entire SCM group for complete job order management.

Last but not least, the presence of the new eye-M top plus operator console compatible with all models in the Area and Oikos ranges. On the same console, upon request, the Maestro beam&wall programming software can also be installed, closely connected to the HMI software. The possibility of using Maestro beam&wall both on a PC in the office and on the operator console, i.e. directly on the machine even for the programming phase, is an important advantage for companies that reckon on flexibility of use to increase their productivity.
