More than 3,000 registered visitors from all over the world came to the Pesaro Biesse Group Campus to take part in the traditional three-day event dedicated to the technological innovations at the service of those who work with wood and advanced materials.Biesse reports an order intake of almost 10 million Euro, most of which originating from the internal market, a reconfirmation of the economic recovery of the Italian area. “Our order intake, in fact, is 250% higher than what achieved in the previous edition and the event attracted 16% more visitors from the 5 continents compared to the previous one. Geographically, Italy stands for 30% of such result confirming the international success of the event and a considerable percentage of said order intake is directly connected to the Biesse 4.0 technologies” states with great joy Federico Broccoli - Wood Division Director / Sales / Subsidiaries Division Director of Biesse Group. The “Smart 4 all” theme of this edition has allowed the visitors to acquire a 360° vision of the potentials that digitalization can offer to the manufacturing sector. "4.0 ready" machines, systems and software marked Biesse for the big and small size companies which want to gain competitiveness through the optimization of their own design and manufacturing processes.
A more in-depth study of said 4.0 industry theme was also made possible through a series of seminars held by Accenture, Biesse Systems and Wood-Skin. More than 400 customers took part in said seminars. “These testimonials demonstrated from various view points how it is possible and convenient to set up a digitalization process within productions sites while keeping strong the value and skills of those who know how to work wood and other materials. This is the Era of the artisan’s digitalization” explains Raphaël Prati, Marketing and Communications Director of Biesse Group.
The interest from the companies in what has now become an appointment of reference for the sector was so high that the event was obliged to declare itself sold out one week prior to its happening, due to logistical constraints, thus it was decided to schedule an additional date of the Inside event which is confirmed to take place from the 17th to the 19th of November in the same place, Pesaro Biesse Group Campus.
