DRIVEN BY INNOVATION
Our commitment to innovative engineering has earned us the reputation of producing the highest quality and most competitive industrial woodworking machinery manufacturing in the global market. We’re constantly innovating new and exciting products for both our stock machine product lines and custom manufacturing solutions.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
Our machines have won nationwide industrial machinery supplier awards, including the Challenger’s Awards, numerous Challenger’s Award Finalists, and many patents. You may know us for pre-glued dowels, CNC bore and dowel machines, and many other products for which we hold the patents.
All our machines use CNC technology; our newest machines use a SynqNet controller, we developed in the language C#. Our programmers have experience in writing features such as custom parametric programming and offline programming as well as more complex code such as Carriage collision algorithms, used for running multiple carriages on the same plane like our VX or HPM. Another complicated design is our “Arch configurator” for easily creating arches on both panels and top rails. Our programming is written “in house” by our software engineers. This allows us to have control over our designs, and to better serve our customers. Our software design is “object oriented” this makes it very easy to create new programs; all programs on our machines can be created at the machines computer. Programs can be written in one minute or less and saved for instant recall thereafter.
For our mechanical design we use the 3D design software, SolidWorks. This allows us to design anything from the smallest of assemblies and parts, to massive production machines. Our assemblies are modular, this gives us the capability to easily pull assemblies from several past machines and implement them into new ones, including custom manufacturing. This keeps from having to “recreate the wheel” every time we develop a new machine. This software also gives us many other capabilities such as collision control which reduces the number of mistakes that are made through the engineering process. Once the parts are completely modeled they can be kept as a solid model and imported into the GibbsCam software our machine shop uses to manufacture all our American-made machines.
