CalDoor purchased five complete Omec production lines for the company’s new box facility, including CNC dovetail machines, automatic glue machines and clamping machines.
CalDoor’s Ed Rossi said that this is a new plant and this is the first time the Morgan Hill, California, company is making drawer boxes.
The new plant was designed to produce 1,000 boxes a day in one shift. Rossi said that the new operation has been open about 18 months and they are currently producing a little more than 500 boxes a day.
“They are configured as assembly lines being feed by a Weinig automatic chop saw with 10 kick-out stations capable of cutting around 1,500 boxes a day so we have a lot of room to grow,” Rossi said.
The Omec equipment provides centered dovetails and the ability to change to custom dovetails on the fly, an advantage for CalDoor.
Rossi said there are three major projects going on at the company. A new Burkle RTF press is going in. New Biesse routers with complete material handling system and a new fully automated Mereen Johnson milling system are also being installed.
Rossi said that after 30 years since he started Cal Door they are really busy. See.http://caldoor.com.
