Assembly & Face Frame Construction
Even as wood component production shifted increasing to automation, face frame construction remained primarily a hands-on process until technological advancements helped machinery makers design tools that could flawlessly clamp, glue, dowel and square cabinets and other furniture pieces at a rapid pace. Today, you can add a case clamp assembly process that will create a series of the same cabinet - or different types or sizes of cabinets - one after the other, and make it part of an assembly line or as a stand-alone unit. Throughfeed systems automatically scan box sizes and adjust top and side pressure, and can run 400-600 boxes per shift.
For door and window manufacturing, you can choose from hands-off machines that assemble 5-piece doors or face frames using magazine feed, automatic gluing, and spool nailing, with glue and nailing automatically applied via programming and touch-screen HMI interface. Most machines are operator-free, error-free, safe, and deliver productivity levels that would be impossible with traditional assembly.
