OUR SHOWROOM

Our showroom is constantly evolving, as new products and components are added or changed. A library of finishes and styles can be reviewed and compared.  An array of ergonomic components, such as monitor supports, keyboard arms, under glass monitor supports and adjustable height tables are set up for hands-on comparisons.  Casegoods and work surface details are also on display.

PANEL PROCESSING

From raw sheet stock to finished products, our facility was designed for the efficient processing of laminated and veneered panels.  This includes items like work surfaces, cabinet components, and shelving.  Because of our capacity, the use of computers and microprocessors in the manufacturing equipment, and our relationships with our suppliers, all size orders are handled quickly and efficiently.

COMPONENT SIZING

All work surfaces and cabinet parts are accurately cut in our manufacturing facility on a computerized/microprocessor controlled panel saw.  This unit is capable of cutting parts as large as 13 ft. x 13 ft., 3 in. thick, in one stroke.  Parts ride on special air cushion tables.  Each cut is made by two separate saw blades at the same time, which eliminates all chipping.   Each part is then tagged with a unique computer generated label and placed on a conveyor for further  processing.

PANEL EDGE PROCESSING

After parts are precisely cut, they typically are transferred via the factory conveyor system to the eight station, automatic edgebander.  This is a 32 foot long station, applying all types of edge trim.  Solid wood lumber, high pressure plastic laminates, PVC tapes, 3mm thick PVC, veneers and 3mm solid wood are all glued, applied, set, trimmed and buffed on the panels in a single pass.  An edge on a part can be finished in only 6 seconds.

CABINET ASSEMBLY

After casegood components are precisely cut to size with edges finished on the automatic edgebander, they may have 32mm system holes and dowel assembly holes drilled on microprocessor controlled boring machines.  To improve production capability, one drilling machine has 51 drill heads and another has a total of 34.  With our unique system, a wide variety of cabinet finishes and styles can be manufactured very efficiently as modules.  Components are then assembled with a high quality Type II water resistant adhesive, in our large pneumatic caseclamp under high pressure.

THE BACK

   Many of our customer's installers and drivers are familiar with our Shipping, Receiving and Will Call areas in the back of the Santa Ana facility.  It is also where the facility's central dust collection blower system is located.  This is a state of the art, zero pollutant system.
