M & M Kitchens of Queanbeyan, New South Wales have doubled their sales turnover and increased productivity after the adoption of CAD/CAM processes. Planit Cabnetware software was installed a decade ago, enhancing M & M Kitchens design processes. M & M Kitchens then integrated CNC manufacturing.
M & M Kitchens design, manufacture and install their kitchens, supervising all trades work.
According to M & M Kitchens, Cabnetware software show computer-generated drawings as to how their kitchen will look. While people might not understand plans and elevations, they can easily relate to a 3D presentation.
People also like the fact that the computer-generated drawings give them the opportunity to refine their chosen designs before construction of the kitchen begins.
A few years ago, M & M Kitchens made the decision to integrate their computer-aided designing with a CNC woodworking machine, choosing a Biesse Rover router and borer.
Cabnetware software controls the automated nesting process that cuts, routes and drills the kitchen parts quickly and accurately.
M & M Kitchens observe that with CNC manufacturing, the job is easier for tradespeople. With plans going straight to the machine, they can turn out parts for a kitchen quickly.
As all the parts are labelled, they know which ones belong to what job and where they go. This makes the kitchen simpler to assemble.
M & M Kitchens note that sales turnover had doubled in the four years since the installation of Biesse Rover router and borer. The increased sales turnover was due to the quickness and accuracy of Biesse Rover router and borer.
Engineered wholly and solely for the woodworking industry, Planit Cabnetware software is a screen-to-machine software. For those workshops automating their businesses with CNC equipment, Planit are integrated with the Planit CNC centre, therefore providing a complete screen-to-machine solution that confirms all parts and part operations before sending data to the factory.
Planit Cabnetware software is easy to set-up for the building of cabinets using joinery techniques. Based on a simple wizard, it allows the creation of several set-ups, mixes various settings per job, changes from one style to another instantly and allows saving of the construction methods for repeated use.
An operator can customise cabinet sizes, shape, or any construction to suit the customer's needs. Colours and textures can be selected for the whole room or for individual cabinets and parts. Lighting and reflections can be controlled to bring these designs to life before any manufacturing has begun.
Following are the features of Planit Cabnetware software:
- users can configure openings and interior parts.
- placement of shelves, dividers, trays, and subassemblies.
- control of door reveals, styles, guides and other options per opening.
- materials can be changed per job, per room, per cabinet, or per part for complete control.
- cabinet shapes can be edited in plan view, elevation view or side view.
- prints are made for colour or detailed line drawings.
- instant change is facilitated between various construction settings.
- parts in part operations change instantly.
