At NexGen, Delmac Machinery Group’s President John Park and others
demonstrated the company’s lean flow layout for Rapid Case
Construction. The lean cell incorporates nesting, boring and dowelling,
banding and clamping for case assembly in just minutes. For this
demonstration, the layout incorporated a Busellato JET Optima RT CNC
router equipped with a linear load/unload system, an OMAL CNC bore and
dowel insertion machine, an IDM edgebander featuring quick changeover
and a Bonacin electronic case clamp. According to the company, this
system can be used to manufacture 70 cabinets per day, in less than
2,000 square feet of space. The picture shows the finished piece.
