LAS VEGAS - During AWFS 2017, Holz-Her and Lockdowel manufactured three new closet systems per day at Holz-Her's booth.
 
Holz-Her's fully operational work cell, featuring the new Sector vertical panel saw, the Auriga edgebander, and the Evolution Connect vertical CNC center, designs, machines and constructs the closet systems.
 
Closet modules are selected, and then components are cut, edgebanded and assembled using the Lockdowel EClips system – a 2017 AWFS Visionary Awards Finalist. 
 
“Lockdowel makes the 5mm closet standard better by completely hiding the EClips fittings from view,” Lockdowel Co-founder and President Bryan Koelling says. “Like all of Lockdowel’s fastening solutions, complete closet assembly is glue-less and tool-less, allowing complete construction in about a third of the time.”
 
Lockdowel assembly requires no glue, saving 60 percent of the time and labor traditionally required for projects, the company says.
 
"Holz-Her sees the amazing value proposition Lockdowel adds to contractors and designers charged with building more efficient, attractive and easy-to construct closets," Michael Cassell CNC Holz-Her product manager adds. "Using our Holz-Her Evolution 7405 Vertical CNC Routing and Machining Center, and the 5 mm Lockdowel Mini EClips fasteners we will manufacture a master-built closet that we are proud to give to the Southern Nevada Boys and Girls Club following the show.”
 
Show attendees saw the work cell in fully-automated production every hour, on the hour in Booth 7065.
