leave a comment »

Lockdowel has announced a new promotion offering a $10,000 incentive to purchase its Lockdowel-ready equipment.  The promotion lasts the entire month of July.

Lockdowel is a tool-less, patented, fastening system that enhances production efficiency and simplifies assembly.

Major machinery manufacturers Biesse, Gannomat, and SCM are producing automated solutions for the Lockdowel System and all have CNC boring and insertion equipment and/or CNC machining centers engineered for production using Lockdowel fittings.

This July, purchasers of qualifying Lockdowel-ready equipment will receive a credit good for $10,000 in Lockdowel fasteners.  That’s enough hardware for 30,000 connections.

At AWFS in Las Vegas, SCM will showcase the new Lockdowel/Omal Insert 1300.  This CNC boring and insertion machine provides cost-effective, precise, repeatable placement of Lockdowel hardware.  It is capable of edge-boring and insertion as well as face-boring of the workpiece.  The Insert 1300 has a capacity of up to 180 panels per hour.

Tyrolean family-ran business Format-4, in time for the start of the New Year, will be handing over their 30,000th Format-4 woodworking machine to its proud new owner, Baravian carpenter Fritz Oberhauser.

“After the first time I visited the factory in Hall in Tirol (in Austria), I was more than impressed,” said Oberhauser. “The standards and level of quality are extremely high, yet the traditional values are still kept at the forefront, the same as how it is in our company.”

With detailed solutions, numerous innovations and patents, and its operating comfort and precision, Format-4 has been a success story ever since its launch at the turn of the millennium.

International awards such as the Bayerische Staatspreis, the IF-Design-Award and the Adolf-Loos-Preis, are testimony of the brand. Countless customers worldwide already rely on the Austrian designed and built machines and profit from their productivity in woodworking.

Format-4 is carried by the U.S. Felder office in Delaware.

Smart manufacturing to be featured at Ligna

leave a comment »

In 2015, Ligna (www.ligna.de) is focusing even more on automation systems, with exhibitors who incorporate such systems into their processing machines and exhibitors who develop and supply the actual automation components, as well as a new exhibit.

Furniture manufacturers have to respond to increasingly fragmented markets and customer demands for ever-shorter turnaround times and highly customized products and services. To survive, they need to offer a greater variety of products, reduce the size of their production runs and increase their throughput speeds. Manufacturers, particularly those in high-wage countries that compete internationally, stand to profit from an integrated manufacturing approach, which offers numerous benefits, including greater process security, increased flexibility, and improved energy and resource efficiency due to the ability of plant and machinery to self-optimize, self-configure and self-diagnose.

Christian Pfeiffer, Ligna director at Deutsche Messe, said: “Taking an integrated manufacturing approach will increasingly become critical to the long-term survival of any furniture company that’s exposed to global competition. The world’s top machinery and automation systems suppliers have already developed many groundbreaking innovations in this space that give us a very clear indication of which way things are heading. As the world’s leading fair for the forestry, timber and furniture industries, Ligna is ideally positioned to help industry professionals navigate the very complex technologies involved and to convey the resulting challenges and opportunities in an easy-to-understand fashion to a wide audience. We will continue to listen closely to and take guidance from manufacturers as we chart the future development of the show and decide how best to present both the myriad possibilities and the limitations of the latest innovations in an accessible fashion.”

In 2015, the trade fair will feature a new “Smart Manufacturing” display. The Integrated Manufacturing display will put the spotlight on smart and fully integrated production systems for the value networks of the wood processing and woodworking industries. Visiting furniture industry professionals, in particular, can see a range of new and innovative manufacturing concepts and solutions. Visitors will be able go on guided tours of key Smart Manufacturing exhibits on each of the five trade fair days.

One section of the new display area will deal with the question of how materials and products within the value chain can be securely tagged with relevant information. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology offers one possible solution. From May 11-15, Ligna partner abaco Informationssysteme GmbH will stage the RFID-Factory display in Hall 17. Visitors to the 500-square-meter (5,380 sq. ft.) interactive exhibit will be able take a captivating tour of a fully integrated supply chain. The exhibit comprises nine segments featuring various partners – from freshly felled tree to timber processing, woodworking and furniture component production, furniture manufacturing, logistics services, retailing, and through assembly of the furniture.
