Xylexpo Is Coming and Greda Is Ready

Greda at Xylexpo 2018

Xylexpo 2018 is one of the most important international fairs for woodworking technology and components for the furniture industry taking place from 8th to 12th May at Fiera Milano-Rho, Milan. The exhibition continues to grow, and this year will cover more than 35,000 square meters. Greda, which has become a reference point for the production of numerical control machining centers, will take its place amongst world leading manufacturers, as it has done for more than thirty years.

“We are all very excited about this year’s Xylexpo” comments Marianna Daschini, co-owner of Greda with her brother Piero. “After a very intense series of trade shows abroad, including Dubai for the Wood Show, China at Interzum Gangzhou, Sofia at Techno Mebel and finally in Russia at the Umids of Krasnodar we are honed and ready to meet our happy customers and potential new clients. You could say this is our World Cup final! Our experience in other shows confirms just how important it is for us to be part of the “Made in Italy” brand; the symbol that makes Italian based manufactures instantly recognisable all over the world”.

To take part in the 26th Xylexpo has become not only a habit for Greda, but also a challenge. It is important to present the company in new and interesting ways while continuing to communicate the traditions of quality, engineering and market leading CNC routers and CNC machining centres with which Greda has become synonymous.

Marianna Daschini continues “We are experiencing strong growth, illustrated by our recent move into a new purpose built factory, coupled with our progressive expansion into new markets The sacrifices made over the last few years have started to be repaid. We have always believed that technological innovation was the only real key to remain competitive, and without doubt we can say that we are also protagonists of the ‘notorious’ industry 4.0, that anyone is talking about.

Industry 4.0 is one of the main themes distinguishing the Xylexpo 2018 Fair. Manufacturing, like many other industries, has progressively opened up to Information Technology, driving the optimisation of processes to reduce downtime and allocate resources effectively while maintaining the opportunity for creativity and originality. Now, more than ever, in a sector experiencing a technological revolution, keeping up with the digitisation of society is essential to continue to compete in a global market.”

‘He who stops is lost’, as the famous proverb says, a phrase that sums up Gredas continued ambition over the past 35 years of activity. Never to be fossilized.

“We have a lot of news for Xylexpo” enthuses Marianna. “Apart from SPRINTER, our five-axis fixed portal with multi-spindle head we will be exhibiting the new version of MITIKA V, one of our key strengths, a five-axis interpolated machining centre designed for turning, milling, shaping and sanding, now with new operating units for even more diverse machining. And finally, Xylexpo will be the stage for a world preview. I’m talking about VENUS: the latest innovation patented by our company, designed to perform turning, milling, honing, and drilling on solid wood elements. A highly innovative working centre, equipped with multiple working groups and a mobile carriage and system for rotating and clamping the pieces by means of a tip and counter-tip which can work up to 4 pieces at the same time”.

The appointment at Xylexpo is a real opportunity for Greda to show off its strength and solidify its mission; the everlasting pursuit of innovation and advanced technology. The premises are enticing, the novelties on the program are numerous but it will only prove the facts, in an exhibition that brings together leading companies in their field, that once again Greda will amaze even those who already knows it. “We are waiting for you at our stand to see firsthand what Greda has in store!”
