Cut Centers become more valuable over time...

In addition to not requiring a programmer, Cut Centers are continuously evolving, providing you with more and more features and products to offer your customers.  When new features and products become available, your Cut Center will automatically alert you, keeping you up to date with the latest offerings (circled in red below).  Because of this, over time, Cut Centers increase in value to your operation instead of falling behind and becoming obsolete.

The amount of products/offerings included in the Cut Center has grown significantly

  • Cabinet definitions are up from 8,169 to 24,465…a 300% increase!
  • Doors and Drawer Front styles increased from 492 offerings to 3,166…a 643% increase!
  • Furniture offerings increased from 30 to 186 offerings.
  • The Shapes Area began with 8 basic shapes and is now up to 30 unique shapes (including trapezoids, octagons, etc.).

In addition, a wide variety of new useful features and tools have been added – some of the most popular ones are:

  • Addition of Stair Stringers
Cut Ready's Stair Stringer Interface
  • Expanded Grain Matching options for Doors and Drawer Fronts
Cut Ready's Grain Matching Interface
  • Print Face Frame dimensions/cut lists at the machine
  • Adjustable edge banding thickness (part sizes are adjusted automatically)
  • Improved Run Screen Interface
  • Base cabinet height adjustments (along with depth and width)
  • Addition of the Publisher tool (easily send your eCabinet designs to the Cut Center)
  • Ability to machine more types of materials, such as Starboard for Outdoor Cabinets

Artie is always available to help
  • Combination Cabinets (combine multiple cabinets into one, large cabinet)

How much do updates cost and who gets them?

Updates are free for Cut Centers, ALL of them…regardless of age.  This ensures that you stay competitive as new technology is developed and new products become available. 

In fact, our latest and most significant update included the ability to make Combination Cabinets, a custom cabinet feature that allows you to create large kitchen cabinets with multiple sections. This feature reduces the machine time by 25 to 35 percent and part count by up to 50 percent, thus dramatically lowering the production time and the material cost of the job.

This latest update alone has increased the amount of cabinet configurations you can make from several million to several trillion…continuing to make the Cut Center much more valuable than when it was first introduced. 

The amount of product at your fingertips (without programming or expensive design software) truly is remarkable!

Latest Cut Ready Update Adds Combination Cabinets and Much More

Posted by Duane Marrett on Mon, Aug 12, 2019

At the recent AWFS show, Thermwood announced exciting new features for its Cut Ready systems. Called “Combination Cabinets” this creates a single structure comprised of multiple cabinets, and like all Cut Ready products it all happens with no CNC programming, making the Cut Ready Cut Center even more valuable.

But, what about all the folks who already have Cut Centers who don’t have this feature? The good news is that with the next free system update, they also get all the new features (even though they didn’t exist when the machine was bought new).

Cut Centers don’t go obsolete, they become more valuable over time.

This latest update features the addition of Combination Cabinets, dovetail drawer box updates and the ability to generate a dimensional listing of all face frame parts.  No matter if your Cut Ready/Cut Center is brand new or was the first one delivered, this will update your machine to the latest features available for you to use, and it’s free.

New Combination Cabinets Feature Added

One of the most important time and material cost saving features ever released – Combination Cabinets – allows you to easily create large kitchen cabinets with multiple sections.  This feature reduces your machine time by 25 to 35 percent and your part count by 50 percent or higher, all without the need for a programmer or expensive design software.

By customizing the size and style of each opening, you can now create endless combinations for both frameless & face frame kitchen cabinets.  Choose from many different options for these sections from one or two doors, with/without drawers, false fronts, open sections, slotted areas for storage along with numerous other variations.

Cut Ready Cut Center at AWFS 2019The 2019 AWFS Show (July 17th-20th) promises to be an exciting opportunity to visit Las Vegas and see the very latest technology from Thermwood!  Like the award winning Thermwood CUT CENTER (make virtually anything a cabinet shop would want to make - with no programming) and the powerful and versatile MODEL 45 with a pod system (machining solid wood, plastic and aluminum).

This year, Thermwood is proud to demonstrate the award-winning CUT READY CUT CENTER (with Artie inside to help you quickly and easily create most products a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer).  

You'll have the opportunity to see just how easy it is to run this powerful machine.  Just tell it what you want, and it makes it...it is that easy! 

We'll be demonstrating live during the show, and you can be part of it by helping to operate the CUT CENTER.  Please visit our booth (#7425) and speak to a Thermwood representative to get your hands on this exciting machine!

CUT READY Series With Artie Inside

Artie is inside both the Cut Ready 43 and the Cut Center to help you easily make most products a cabinet shop would want to make with no programming!

Despite the cute name, Artie is actually a cutting edge, artificial intelligence engine inside the CUT READY control.

You tell him what you want and he creates a program to make it. These are not pre-programmed libraries. No part programs exist in the control until Artie creates them. This is nothing less than a bold next step in the evolution of the CNC router.

Artie is already capable of programming tens of millions of unique products and is constantly learning how to make and do more and more new things. Artie is easy enough that virtually anyone can work with him with little or no training.

Solid Wood Machining on the Thermwood MODEL 45

Thermwood Model 45 at AWFS 2019We will also be demonstrating solid wood, plastics and aluminum utilizing a pod system and a horizontal aggregate on the Thermwood MODEL 45.

The heavy-duty MODEL 45 is designed for a variety of functions including the machining of rotary operations when equipped with our optional C-Axis. This expands the capability of this already useful machine to include volutes, carvings, chair parts, stair components and much more.  The MODEL 45 is also equipped with smart-router technology that helps save labor and material, are easy to use and will make you a lot more money than ordinary routers.

See in operation at  AWFS 2019!
