Thermwood's Patented Assembly Marks and Color Coded Labels Simplify Putting Cabinets Together

Posted by Duane Marrett on Tue, Jun 06, 2017

Tags: Thermwood, Assembly Marks, Patented, Cabinet, Save Money, CNC Router, Announcements, Color Coded Labels

Current Problems When Assembling Cabinets in the Field

Creating the components of your cabinets is one aspect of the job, but you also need to be able to assemble them quickly and correctly.

Many cabinet shops manufacture cabinets at one location and then assemble and install at another (the customer's home, etc).  When you flat-pack an entire kitchen's worth of cabinets so that it stacks neatly, it can quickly become confusing and frustrating to then put everything together correctly in the field.  

First, Sorting the Parts For Each Cabinet

Sorting parts for each cabinet can be difficult without Thermwood's Assembly Marks

A typical nested based job consists of hundreds of parts representing perhaps dozens of cabinets, all intertwined into a series of nests.  Your first task is to separate the parts into individual cabinets.

This is normally done by placing labels on each part. Each label has a text statement with the cabinet name. Simply read the name and sort the cabinets by those names - sounds easy, right?

Not So Easy

While this sounds simple, it actually takes quite some time. You must read each label on the stacks of parts you are sorting to find the matching names for each cabinet (this can be a problem if your worker(s) don't read or speak English). This reading also takes time and parts sometimes have similar names so mistakes can be pretty easy to make.

The Solution

Time is money, and Thermwood has the solution to save you both in the form of our Patented Assembly Marks and Color Coded Labels.

Color Coded Labels Speed Up Sorting Time

A nest of parts with Thermwood's color coded labels.

Thermwood’s approach prints a color bar on each label with a different color for each cabinet. (put the red parts with the red parts and the green parts with the green parts, etc.). This simple idea allows you to sort cabinets two to three times faster. This offers a significant productivity improvement. 

Bar Codes for Remaking Scrapped Parts

Each label also has a unique bar code that can be scanned to remake any damaged part(s) easily and quickly.

Thermwood's color coded labels.

Assembly Marks Speed Up Assembly Time 

Thermwood's Patented Assembly Marks are a significant productivity improvement when it comes to actually putting the cabinets together. Simple cabinets are not all that difficult to assemble, but as cabinet designs become more complex, with fixed partitions, shelves or other features, determining exactly how to assemble the parts can become difficult.

Generally you must create and print assembly drawings, and sometimes even with these drawings, the process of sorting out the structure can take significant time.

How Assembly Marks Work

Cabinet parts with assembly marks are easy to put together.

Thermwood’s approach machines unique assembly marks into each joint to define which parts mate together. These marks are hidden once the parts are assembled.

Assembly marks are totally hidden when the cabinet is put together.

Non-Skilled Workers Can Easily Assemble Cabinets

Assembly drawings aren’t needed and in fact, totally non-skilled workers can easily and quickly assemble even the most complex cabinets.

One shop owner asked his cleanup man to assemble a cabinet as a test. This totally unskilled “cabinetmaker” assembled the cabinet quickly and accurately with no drawings or instructions. For most jobs this represents a significant productivity improvement that could rival the machining process itself. 

The Bottom Line

Thermwood's approach can save you significant time and money through the use of Assembly Marks and Color Coded Labels to improve your accurancy and productivity when sorting and assembling your cabinets out in the field.

10 Reasons Why a Thermwood Cut Center Will Save You Time and $$$

Posted by Duane Marrett on Tue, May 16, 2017

Tags: Thermwood, Cut Ready, Cut Center, Save Money, Why Purchase a Thermwood

No fear with a Thermwood Cut Center- We've got this!

The Thermwood Cut Center is all about saving you time and money, using an easy to operate and sophisticated combination of software and machinery that you can feel confident in.  

We've taken the fear out of automation by combining our easy to use interface and years of experience in the industry to create a powerful tool that will allow you to focus more on your products, business, making money, and worry less about being intimidated by the technical details.  Your time is money, and the Cut Center helps you save more of both.

Below, find out just what makes the Thermwood Cut Center so special and profitable:

1. Huge Product Line From Day One

The product offering on the Thermwood Cut Center is extensive, and constantly growing.  It includes cabinets, closets, furniture, doors, drawers, moldings and much more, and the sizes can easily be changed with no programming.The Thermwood Cut Center Has a Huge Offering of Products with No Programming!

With a Cut Center, you can:

  • Make your products with little effort
  • Make your competitors products with little effort
  • Expand your current offering to other profitable products with little effort
  • Profit from an ever-expanding product line with no programming

We can also help you develop custom libraries for your specific product(s) in the size range and material you want and install them in your machine.   

2. Virtually Instant Start Up

It is likely you will be in full production with a Thermwood Cut Center in about a half a day.

A typical CNC router can take as much as six months to program and get to that point. A half a day or a half a year? There is serious cost associated with that half a year. 

Virtually Instant Start Up with a Thermwood Cut Center

With the Cut Center, it is all figured out for you, and from Day One you get:

  • No programming
  • No extensive training required
  • No tooling to figure out and buy
  • No cutting parameters to figure out 

3. Feel Confident That the Details are Taken Care Of

The Thermwood Cut Center is engineered and programmed by experts who have taken all of the worry and headaches out of the equation.  This gives you the confidence and peace of mind to focus on what is important - making money!   You can concentrate on your product (its configuration, material and dimensions), as well as marketing and growing your business. 

Feel confident that the details are taken care of with a Thermwood Cut Center

All the technical knowledge needed to make the machine work is already in place and invisible to the user - no new technical skills are necessary. You simply select what you want to make, right at the machine, and it makes it.

Running a Cut Center is much easier than a typical CNC router:

  • It manages tools for you
    • Figures out which tools to use for each job
    • Figures out proper cutting speeds
    • Tracks tool life
  • It recovers from problems easily and smoothly
    • Easily remake damaged parts by simply scanning a label
    • Recover from broken tool(s) without scrapping parts
    • Easily recut a defective sheet
  • It manages maintenance
    • It tells you when to clean filters
    • It tells you when to lubricate
    • It easily connects you to a service tech if you ever need more help 

4. Constant Updates and Additions

We are constantly adding new libraries, features and capabilities to the Award-Winning Cut Ready Cut Center.  

Now resize width and depth of corner cabinets in the Cut Center
For instance, our latest update ads:
  • Resize width/depth on corner cabinets
  • Turn air assist on or off
  • More efficient run screen interface
  • Ability to save Shapes jobs
  • Ability to manually check for updates
  • Variety of boxes added to Cut Center library

5.  Also Operate As a CNC Router

Thermwood Cut Center Nesting Drawer Boxes

You can also operate the Cut Center system as a CNC router in the traditional manner, running programs generated with virtually any CNC software. 

It is simple to switch between operating as a CNC router and operating as a Cut Center to assure that all machine parameters are properly reset and that the standard Cut Center tooling is properly installed, checked and ready to run. 

6. With Other CNC Routers - Programming Required?

Other CNC Routers are not so cheap after all compared to the Thermwood Cut CenterEvery CNC router, regardless of price, has one thing in common..it must be programmed. You will need a CNC programmer.  You will also need an operator with knowledge of tooling, feed speeds and holddown.  

This programming and operating knowledge takes a lot of time and experience to master. That can be time away from running your machine and making money.   

7. Other CNC Routers - Not So Cheap After All

A typical CNC programmer will cost you more each month than the payment on a Thermwood Cut Center, which does not need CNC programs or CNC programmers.

So, even if a machine was FREE, it would still cost you more than a Thermwood Cut Center, and in a few years the Cut Center payments go away while your programmer costs most likely will go up. 

When you consider everything, a cheap router isn’t so cheap after all. In fact, some CNC router manufacturers will charge 3-5 times more for spare parts and service.

In these cases, the manufacturers plan is to double or triple their profit over 5 years through spare parts and service.  This is why the initial cost of the CNC router is cheaper.

You are going to spend the money anyway...what will you have to show for it?
  • With another direction you will need extensive training
  • With any other direction, you will spend a lot of time programming a highly limited product offering
  • With any other direction, someone will need to develop programs virtually every day (either you or someone you hire)
  • With any other direction, you will produce less each day, because it is more complicated
  • With any other direction, you will spend more and get less.

8. Buying a Cut Center vs. Buying a Typical CNC router

With a Cut Center, you don't need any extensive training, specialized knowledge or expensive employees to get started.  Everything is already set up for you to succeed.

Items you will need to learn (or hire someone who knows) to operate a typical CNC router:

  • G & M Code Programming
  • Tooling
  • Maintenance
  • Fixturing
  • Scrap Recovery
  • File Handling
  • Software(s)

9. Absolute Commitment to Your Success

Thermwood is committed to your success with the best service and support in the business!Thermwood is committed to you and your success.  We want you to love your new Cut Center, and for it to help move your business to the next level.
