From the Smart Workshop to the Workshop of the Future - Intelligent and Networked Solutions for Every Size of Business

For some time now, digitization has also been the megatrend in the timber industry. The networking of modern information and communication technology with production has taken on concrete, practice-oriented forms - also for the skilled trades and small and medium-sized enterprises.

This is where the concept of the "Smart Workshop" comes in. It is no longer possible to imagine modern production facilities without intelligent, complete solutions that communicate with one another. In keeping with this development, HOLZ-HER offers sophisticated and integrated manufacturing solutions designed for optimisation, transparency and high added value.

Industry 4.0 for artisans - always one step ahead with HOLZ-HER.

The local solution for your production control with the Nesting CNC machines from HOLZ-HER

The Nextec 4.0 solution goes beyond pure machine processing. Nextec 4.0 is the complete solution for entering and controlling production and material flows in the workshop. 

The heart of NEXTEC 4.0 is the Smart Factory network PC for efficient, transparent and traceable production in your future workshop.

NEXTEC 4.0 is the local solution for your transparent production control. With the NEXTEC 4.0 Network PC you can digitally connect furniture planning in the office with the machine. All CAD/CAM data created in the office with the planning software is transferred via the Warehouse Production List to the CNC machine in the workshop. Digitalization is simply thought of and tailored to joineries who want their data to remain in their own workshop. 

With the extensive selection of sizes and variants for nesting machines on the market, HOLZ-HER offers you not only the networking between office and workshop, but also the matching nesting CNC machine.
