Thermwood Cut Center at IWF 2018IWF 2018 (August 22nd-25th) starts tomorrow, and we are putting the final touches on our booth (#6735).  What better reason to visit Atlanta, than to see the latest technology and products from Thermwood?  

This year, Thermwood is proud to demonstrate the all new CUT READY 43 and the award-winning CUT CENTER (both help you quickly and easily create most products a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer), and both with Artie Inside.

 

Thermwood Cut Ready 43 at IWF 2018

You'll have the opportunity to see just how easy it is to run these powerful CUT READY machines. We'll be demonstrating live during the show, and you can be part of it by helping to operate the CUT CENTER and the CUT READY 43!

We will also have two CUT READY kiosks available for attendees to try out the CUT READY software during the show.  Thermwood personnel will be standing by to answer any questions you may have.

 

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!

Both of these machines in our new CUT READY Series are equipped with Artie Inside.  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 IWF 2018We will also be demonstrating solid wood, aluminum and plastic sheet parts on the Thermwood MODEL 45utilizing a pod system and aggregate tooling.

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  IWF 2018!

Cut Center Display created by Cut Center owner Timberwood Properties in Leesburg, FLThe CUT READY 43, the CUT CENTER and the MODEL 45 will all be on display and cutting live at IWF 2018 (Thermwood booth #6735).  We will also have several displays created on the CUT CENTER, as well as some created by our customers, like this outdoor kitchen, designed and machined by Timberwood Properties in Leesburg, FL .

The 2018 IWF Show (August 22nd-25th) promises to be an exciting opportunity to visit Atlanta and see the very latest technology from Thermwood (booth #6735)! 

Like the all new CUT READY 43 and the award-winning CUT CENTER (both help you quickly and easily create most products a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer) and the heavy-duty MODEL 45 machining solid wood, aluminum and plastic sheet parts.

New CUT READY 43 - With Artie Inside!

Thermwood Cut Ready 43 will be on display at IWF 2018

Thermwood is proud to introduce our all-new CUT READY 43 (shown above equipped with a 5 by 8 table, optional 21-position tool changer and lift vacuum cups and a standard high flow vacuum hold-down system - additional table sizes and options are available). This machine has many of the features of the CUT CENTER, but at a lower price.

Just like a CUT CENTER, it also can help you quickly and easily create most things a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer, but unlike the CUT CENTER, it does require a trained and somewhat skilled machine operator. 

The CUT READY 43 will be in action at IWF 2018 in booth #6735.  

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!

Both of these machines in our new Cut Ready Series are equipped with Artie Inside.  Despite the cute name, Artie is actually a cutting edge, artificial intelligence engine inside the Cut Ready control.

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.

Try out the award-winning CUT CENTER for yourself at IWF 2018!

The CUT CENTER is the ultimate in next generation CNC routers. It doesn't require programming and most people can operate it with little or no training or guidance. It is complete, fully contained with all the ancillary equipment, smoothly integrated into a package that almost runs itself.

Thermwood CUT CENTER at IWF 2016.

Artie guides you through each step of the production process. If there is anything you don’t understand, he will show you a video of what to do. He manages your tooling and keeps track of routine maintenance. He will show you a video of how to clean filters or top off lubrication. He will turn your vacuum pump on or off as needed and will make sure it is holding properly. Should you encounter a problem he will guide you, step by step, through a solution.

Just like the CUT READY 43, you can operate the CUT CENTER as a traditional CNC router.  However, running with Artie represents a whole new way of operating a machine which must be experienced to be completely understood.  It is just so easy!. The CUT CENTER is the ultimate in next generation CNC.

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 (#6735) and speak to a Thermwood representative to get your hands on this exciting machine!

Smart-routers alert you when prominent parts are going to be processed

Posted by Duane Marrett on Fri, Jul 05, 2013

Tags: 3 Axis, Model 45, MTR, Model 43, CNC Router, QCore, CNC Routers, smart-router, alerts

Smart routers alert you when running critical partsSmart-routers alert you when running critical or prominent parts.  Certain parts are prominent on the final product, door and drawer fronts for example.

Smart-routers instruct you to hand select the sheet if it has any of these prominent parts on it. If left to random, it is easy to encounter a flaw or unattractive grain pattern, forcing you to scrap valuable parts. By hand selecting, you can use the best possible material for these important parts. 

And since nesting is done right at the machine, it is easy to use material left from previous jobs. At the beginning of a new job, simply scan the label on any material you want to use and the machine nests on it. You can even use material with flaws by nesting around the flaws. This feature alone can save 5-7% of your material cost each year.

Thermwood at AWFS 2013

Thermwood will be demonstrating many of the features of smart-router technology and nested based manufacturing at the 2013 AWFS show on July 24th-27th (Booth #8400).  Plan to stop by and check it out, or click the button below to request a personal consultation on how we can help improve your production process.

Smart-routers use smart labels to make parts easy to sort and edgeband

Posted by Duane Marrett on Wed, Jul 03, 2013

Tags: Labels, 3 Axis, Model 45, edgebanding, MTR, Model 43, CNC Router, smart-router

Smart labels make parts easy to programSmart-routers use smart labels to make parts easy to sort and edgeband.

Most jobs consist of several individual items, for example, a kitchen full of cabinets. To get the most efficient nests, parts are scattered throughout the job. Once complete, the first thing you must do is figure out which parts go with which cabinets. Smart-routers use a color symbol on the labels. Put the parts with the same symbol together; red circles with red circles, blue triangles with blue triangles, yellow squares with yellow squares, etc. Color symbols are much easier to sort than text descriptions. This saves a ton of labor. Using a diagram of the part, smart labels also show which edges need to be edge banded.
