Connectors eliminate the need for edge drilling

LANCASTER --  Colonial Saw's Cabineo is a time-saving furniture connector that eliminates the need for edge drilling. The concept behind Cabineo is to use a minimal amount of resources for a maximum of functionality, offering considerable advantages throughout the entire process.  Cabineo is inserted into a surface-only routed shape on the cabinet during production or installation. When factory-installed, they are easily flat-packed for transport, and end-users don’t need to install loose fittings. Cabineo can be used with all kinds of CNC machines, including very simple 3-axis and nested-based machines.  Installers can then singlehandedly install the finished product with just a cordless drill and clip on astatic colored cover caps in seconds. Product testers report drastically reduced setup time and absolutely zero mistakes during assembly. 
Advantages and features
  • Process optimization due to clean surface machining; No horizontal boring required
  • Reduced height of 10mm for panel thicknesses of 12mm or more
  • One-piece connector without dowel; no need for preassembly of screws or dowels in the side sections
  • Flat-pack delivery with preassembled connectors
  • Possible disassembly for transportation or if the fixed shelves need to be adjusted
  • Possibility of retro connector fixed shelves or vertical partitions in a cabinet that has already been installed
 Cabineo is inserted into a surface-only routed shape on the cabinet during production or installation.
