Lights Out Woodworking at  Ro-Bois-Tic

More than 50 woodworkers participated in a tour of Ro-Bois-Tic, a new "lights out" cabinet and case goods plant in St.-Apollinaire, QC. The tour was organized by CNC Automation. When completed the robotic line will be able to produce up to 1,200 cabinets a week working around the clock.
