That was the Holz-Handwerk 2022
Spectacular success at the trade fair with the live presentation of the vacuum presses PIONEER and MOVE.
Already on the first day it was clear – this Holz-Handwerk will be different. A special energy of optimism, of hands-on mentality and of the cohesion of the craft community was noticeable, and this lasted until the very last visitor had left the exhibition center. It was a great reunion of many colleagues, who are connected at heart by a single cause, and genuine interested parties who are passionate about one thing. It wasn't just a trade fair, it was – in the truest sense of the word – a celebration, celebrating an entire industry.

Craftsmanship is real, craftsmanship is living and craftsmanship must be seen, felt and touched. Of course, we are all the happier to finally be able to meet our customers personally again after this long break. Because it is only possible in a personal conversation to fully understand what is important to our fellow craftsmen and how we can support them in the best possible way, says Ruth Koppenberger, CEO of Columbus.

First live presentation of the patented vacuum press modular system PIONEER


Of course, the market launch of PIONEER could not be stopped by the pandemic, but unfortunately had to take place virtually in 2020. At this year's Holz-Handwerk, the live presentation has finally been rescheduled and celebrated a great success. It was as if the anticipation had only increased over time.

PIONEER is the first patented vacuum press modular system. The high-quality vacuum press is available in 3 different sizes and, based on PIONEER BASIC – the high-precision vacuum table with flap opening – can be upgraded with 2 individual modules. On the one hand with the module called VERTICAL – the vertical opening system – for processing very high workpieces. On the other hand with the module called HEAT – the external high-performance heating system – for heating up plastics for subsequent forming on the vacuum table.

In this way, PIONEER offers the possibility of producing extraordinary workpieces by laminated bending, form-veneering and forming solid surface materials and plastics.

MOVE and INFINITY – the new stars with very special abilities


In addition to PIONEER, two other new machines from Columbus were presented.

MOVE – the inexpensive and space-saving mobile vacuum press was exhibited live directly at the booth. MOVE offers all the advantages of a vacuum press for wood processing but is particularly flexible. Thanks to the construction designed for mobility with 230 V connection, castors and the revolutionary folding mechanism (only 45 % space requirement) with which it fits through any standard door, MOVE is ready for use wherever it is needed.

INFINITY – the vacuum press system in special lengths - could not be exhibited live due to its size, but was welcomed with particular interest. We invite all interested parties who are looking for a vacuum press of 10 meters length or more at an excellent price to find out more HERE.

A great reunion with Columbus dealers


A personal highlight for the Columbus team, which was represented at the trade fair, was the opportunity to meet many well-known and friendly dealers again. The warm words about the good cooperation over the years were particularly pleasing. We are happy and really appreciate working with such a great dealer network, where appreciation and honesty are lived with every cell. Because that is also the Columbus philosophy.

Next step – LIGNA Hanover


Columbus finally breathed trade fair air again and what else can we say than: It feels great. Now it goes on. For this reason, Columbus decided to also present the new machines at the LIGNA in Hanover. So, save the date: May 15 - 19, 2023. We’ll be there!

In summary, it can be said that the Holz-Handwerk was a wonderful start to a new era. We were able to collect many impressions and wishes from our customers and interested parties and are fully motivated to catapult the wood and plastic processing companies further towards success.
