The new Lockdowel EClips evaluation kit includes samples of the slide-lock, removable connectors, ChanneLock, and the permanent H-Clip fasteners. The new single-piece system is ideal for RTA products of all types including cabinets and doors, casegoods, furniture and picture frames, Lockdowel says. The company adds EClips allows woodworkers with a CNC machining center and edge-boring capability to simplify manufacturing, packaging, warehousing and transportation processes by flat-packing finished goods. Fast and easy final assembly can then occur on-site. In addition to EClips, Lockdowel offers the Lockdowel Component System (CS), a three-piece snap-together system for high-speed automated manufacturing. CNC drilling and insertion equipment for the Component System is available now from major machinery manufacturers including SCM Group, Biesse and Gannomat. Automated, high-speed CNC boring and insertion solutions for EClips will be available in 2016. Both fastening systems are available in the Cabinet Vision hardware library and are being added to IMOS, Wood CAD/CAM and TopSolid design and production software as well.
