AWFS Fair 2021

For AWFS 2021, Thermwood Corporation, an innovator in the design and manufacture of 3 and 5 Axis CNC Routers, is proud to demonstrate two systems. We’ll have our versatile and affordable CabinetShop 43 510-8 and our powerful Cut Ready Cut Center machining on site.

Cabinetshop 43

CabinetShop 43 510-8

We will be machining plastic sheets, signs, outdoor furniture and nested based applications on our CabinetShop 43 510-8 CNC Router. This machine features a 5'x10' base with a 5'x8' table, allowing it to offer 21 tooling positions with its automatic bar style tool changer. It also has an improved dual pipe dust collection system, programmable pop-up pins, auto tool length measurement and an automatic lubrication system. This configuration is also available as a 512-10, with a 10 foot table on a 12 foot base. Auto labeling and an unload rake system for nested based production are also available as an option. 


Cut Ready Cut Center

Cut Ready Cut CenterThermwood will also be demonstrating the award-winning Cut Ready Cut Center. This powerful system helps you quickly and easily create most products a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer (cabinets, furniture, doors, drawers, moldings, stair stringers and much more). Just tell it what you want to make via a simple touch-screen interface, and it makes it. Or, you can operate it as a traditional CNC router.  

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.


Check us out in Booth #1701

CabinetShop 43 510-8We'll be demonstrating live on both machines during the show, as well as operating an eCabinet Systems kiosk.  Our eCabinet Systems expert will be designing nested-based applications on the fly to send to the CabinetShop 43 to be machined.  In addition to our Cut Center live demonstrations, we will also have two Cut Ready kiosks, where you can explore the software and see just how easy it is to design most things a cabinet shop would want to make. 

Please visit our booth (#1701) and speak to a Thermwood representative to learn more about these two powerful and affordable additions to any shop!

Pre-drill your cabinets for a wide variety of slides, hinges, and hinge plates!

We have all the popular hardware patterns within Cut Ready including Blum, Accuride, Grass, Hafele, and Salice. Not only does this speed up production, it also increases the accuracy and placement of the hardware itself. Simply select your preferences within the Settings menu, or change it on-the-fly when processing a job.

If you haven’t decided on hardware yet, you can turn the patterns off, or use Cut Ready’s Universal Patterns and get to cutting.

Latest Cut Ready Update Adds the Combination Feature to Bath Cabinets

Learn How Easy it is to Machine a Cabinet in Cut Ready

Cut Ready’s Bath cabinets now have the option to combine into one larger combination cabinet.  We successfully introduced this feature several months ago for kitchens and are expanding it to include bath cabinets too.  As customers have found, there are many benefits with combination cabinets over the traditional single cabinet layouts.

Some Benefits:

  • Less material & expendables (labels, tooling, etc.)
  • Less parts to sort, assemble, edge band or potentially damage
  • Increased cabinet space
  • Better grain matching
  • Easier to level/straighten one cabinet vs. multiple cabinets
  • Reduced labor and overhead
  • Increased profits

Latest Cut Ready Update Adds the Combination Feature to Bath Cabinets

To Access this Feature:

As you select options to make your bath cabinets, you will eventually be asked this question:

Latest Cut Ready Update Adds the Combination Feature to Bath Cabinets

Note:  This is an unusually large update and will require time to download.  Continue using the system as you normally would while it is downloading. 

Shutting the machine down will not cause any harm.  The system will continue downloading when it is turned back on.

New Plans to Connect With Customers

With IWF cancelled for 2020 - Thermwood has put new plans into place to connect with our customers who won't get to see us live in Atlanta.

We are currently working to produce a series of Info Spot videos featuring our Cut Ready Cut Center, 3 Axis and 5 Axis CNC routers and LSAM (Large Scale Additive Manufacturing Systems) that highlight the capabilities of each, in addition to giving tips and tricks to help with tooling and fixturing.

Thermwood Info Spot Virtual Demo Videos Coming Soon!

The Thermwood team is always available to consult in the form of web demos/videos and time studies.  We are also ready to welcome customers to our Dale, Indiana, headquarters for in-person demonstrations, or use the web to stream live demonstrations if preferred.

Thermwood is Open For Business

Thermwood is open for business, and ready to demo your projects on our machines to prove our CNC equipment can machine customer applications more efficiently and with a significant cost savings.

See Our Machines in Action Without a Trade Show

At IWF, we had planned to demonstrate three of our machines.  First, our Cut Ready Cut Center, which allows users to make virtually anything a cabinet shop would want to make, with no programming required.

Thermwood Cut Ready Cut Center

We were also planning to show the heavy-duty Model 45 (composites, plastics, nested base, aluminum, non-ferrous metal and wood) and the high-performance Model 43.

Thermwood CabinetShop 43 5'x10' with Optional Labeling System and Unload Rake


See the Cut Center in action in our upcoming Info Spot videos!The Cut Center would really have been the star of our show. Once people see it in action, and understand how easy it is to operate, they love it.   The machine control actually walks the operator through the entire process, using a touch-screen interface to easily select and configure what they want to make.   

It also keeps track of all maintenance items (lubrication, tooling, filters, etc.), and handles selecting the correct tool and nesting the sheets for maximum efficiency. It also automatically prints labels for each part, as well as a diagram to apply them.

Info Spot Videos Coming Soon - Stay Tuned!

With this in mind, our first round of videos, or Info Spots will feature the Cut Center, and walk viewers through everything from understanding the differences between the Cut Center and a regular CNC router to operating the machine and selecting and cutting out cabinets.

Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks for the first in this new series of videos from Thermwood!
