At the PANAS stand visitors will be able to examine a wide range of innovative machine models from Italian concern SCM Group; a whole range of new machines from SCM will be on display, incl.:

At the trade fair the above company will also present formatting saw FORMÁTKA for solid wood and laminate – new, robust, perfectly made, high-performance, for an excellent price and with a long service life without any operational difficulties.
