from the presidents desk<br />

This is my last <strong>co</strong>lumn to members as I hand over<br />

the Presidency to Rhys Powell at the Rotorua<br />

<strong>co</strong>nference in June. It would be great to be able to<br />

report loads of positive aspects to the past two years, but<br />

in fact it’s been a tough road for us all since 2009, and a<br />

great deal tougher again for our Canterbury members.<br />

The e<strong>co</strong>nomic environment has thrown, and <strong>co</strong>ntinues<br />

to throw, enormous business challenges at us. I take my<br />

hat off to all of you who’ve survived this recession and<br />

I’m <strong>co</strong>nfi dent that we’ll see the building industry begin<br />

to re<strong>co</strong>ver before the year is out.<br />

The MJF has retained a focus over this period on<br />

introducing NZS4211. I fi rmly believe that this will<br />

spur new life into timber joinery for the home. The<br />

Rotorua <strong>co</strong>nference will introduce our plans for rolling<br />

this out and how members can take advantage of this<br />

new standard.<br />

And this is why it’s a great time to leverage the benefi ts<br />

of being a Master Joiner. We give you a solid brand<br />

that customers can rely on. Customers are aware of the<br />

dangers of shoddy building practices, they’re strapped<br />

for cash and every dollar must <strong>co</strong>unt. But they can<br />

research everything on the net and they’re spoilt for<br />

choice. Most will prefer to choose tradesmen that are<br />

backed by a reputable organisation like MJF.<br />

There’s been a pleasing amount of entries for our national<br />

awards and I’m looking forward to viewing these at<br />

<strong>co</strong>nference in Rotorua. And of <strong>co</strong>urse <strong>co</strong>nnecting with<br />

friends and <strong>co</strong>lleagues from around the <strong>co</strong>untry.<br />

It has been a privilege to represent the Master Joiners<br />

Federation these past years. The Executive team all<br />

bring expertise and skills to the table, and I’ve learned<br />

much from their experiences and have enjoyed working<br />

alongside them. It’s good to see some younger joiners<br />

stepping up to accept tomorrow’s challenges and steer<br />

the MJF and its members towards a prosperous future.<br />

Best wishes to you all, and see you in Rotorua.<br />

Mayor<br />

in hot<br />

seat<br />

DNZ CEO Paul Duffy,<br />

Auckland Mayor<br />

Len Brown and The<br />

Laminex Group<br />

General Manager<br />

Robert Gibbes.<br />

Auckland Mayor Len Brown was in the hot seat recently<br />

during the offi cial opening of The Laminex Group’s new<br />

head offi ce and distribution centre in Penrose Auckland. The<br />

Mayor tried out for size the J Chair which was designed by US<br />

architect Michael Graves. The chair was one of nine designs<br />

created by world-renowned US architects in 2008. It formed<br />

part of a <strong>co</strong>llection that was recently on display at the Formica<br />

Formations Exhibition at the Aotea Centre.<br />

The Laminex Group General Manager, Robert Gibbes, said the<br />

organisation’s new purpose-built 12,378m 2 distribution centre<br />

had brought together fi ve separate sites into the one purpose-built<br />

facility. The premises which took 12 months to <strong>co</strong>mplete were<br />

built by Fletcher Construction, with the Laminex Group leasing<br />

both buildings from DNZ Property.<br />

“The new offi ce building design in<strong>co</strong>rporates environmentallyfriendly<br />

initiatives including maximising the use of natural<br />

lighting in all offi ce areas, low-energy sensor <strong>co</strong>ntrolled lighting,<br />

some reticulated water and waste recycling,” Robert said. “A<br />

number of new technologies have also been introduced including<br />

the placement of a state-of-the-art Hubtex lifting platform in<br />

the warehouse.”<br />

Manufactured in Germany, it is the fi rst of its kind in use in New<br />

Zealand. It moves along a wire embedded in the <strong>co</strong>ncrete fl oor<br />

and features a lifting platform capable of reaching heights of 7-8<br />

metres, carrying weights of 1.5 tonnes.<br />

From The Publisher<br />

Interzum and FSM<br />

I have had the fortunate opportunity to visit<br />

interzum 2011 in Cologne recently to see<br />

how things have developed particularly<br />

in the architectural hardware scene. The<br />

show was heavily attended indicating<br />

things are not as bad as we might think.<br />

Overseas attendees were up 24% over the<br />

last show in 2009. The general feeling was<br />

one of calculated optimism for the future.<br />

New products abound as you will see in<br />

our next <strong>co</strong>uple of issues.<br />

The reason I went to Germany was in fact<br />

to attend the Annual meeting of members<br />

of the International Woodworking &<br />

Furniture Supplier Magazines’ Association<br />

(FSM) of which JOINERS magazine<br />

is now a member. There are some 27<br />

<strong>co</strong>untries involved in this Association. The<br />

aim is to promote <strong>co</strong>operation between<br />

the various publications with such things<br />

as exchange of articles, joint events and<br />

information about individual markets.<br />

This will lead to a better understanding<br />

of the world scene rather than just a<br />

local market. This should have some<br />

exciting implications down the track for<br />

the magazines involved. More on this as<br />

developments occur.<br />

All this aside, we have some interesting<br />

features in this issue. Edgebanding<br />

machinery and related products are a big<br />

part of the joinery arsenal of technology.<br />

We have some of the latest developments<br />

in this issue. When it <strong>co</strong>mes to fi nishes<br />

in the kitchen and bathroom there are a<br />

lot of options to <strong>co</strong>nsider and issues to<br />

watch out for. We have some insights from<br />

some of the leading suppliers on what to<br />

look out for and what they have to offer.<br />

This <strong>co</strong>vers not only walls, ceilings and<br />

splashbacks but also fi nishes for cabinetry<br />

and internal joinery. Another important<br />

aspect of the kitchen and indeed the<br />

bathroom are sinks and benchtops. Having<br />

a good (and expensive) looking sink and<br />

benchtop is no longer the preserve of just<br />

the well to do. They are now priced for any<br />

size pocket. We show some of the latest<br />

product from leading suppliers.<br />

For Master Joiner members note that you<br />

have <strong>co</strong>ming up soon the Annual Master<br />

Joiners Conference to be held in Rotorua<br />

this year. We will have in depth <strong>co</strong>verage<br />

of this including the winners in the Master<br />

Joiner Awards and Apprentice Awards in<br />

our September issue along with more on<br />

interzum and a look at the international<br />

woodworking machinery show Ligna<br />

2011. Catch you next time.<br />

Two of the judges in this year’s inaugural<br />

Formica Formations design <strong>co</strong>mpetition<br />

have been announced and include a top local<br />

and international designer. The Laminex Group<br />

Sales and Marketing Manager, Nicky Duggan,<br />

said she was delighted with the line-up of<br />

judges which include leading New Zealand<br />

designer David Trubridge.<br />

“David Trubridge has worked in the design<br />

industry for over 18 years,” Nicky said.<br />

“During that time, he has notched up numerous<br />

ac<strong>co</strong>lades including being named by a French<br />

magazine as one of the top 15 designers in the<br />

world. In 2007, he was given New Zealand’s<br />

highest design award – the John Britten Award<br />

– by the Designer’s Institute of NZ.”<br />

Also included on the judging panel is Formica<br />

US Vice President of Design Renée Hytry<br />

Derrington who was instrumental in initiating<br />

a similar US design event. A third guest judge<br />

is yet to be announced although The Laminex<br />

Group is expecting that person to be an<br />

internationally re<strong>co</strong>gnised architect.<br />

“Having top industry professionals from<br />

both New Zealand and overseas judging the<br />

inaugural <strong>co</strong>mpetition is a great refl ection of<br />

how well supported the <strong>co</strong>mpetition is within<br />

the design <strong>co</strong>mmunity,” Nicky said.<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 8<br />

Renée Hytry Derrington and David Trubridge<br />

Judges announced for inaugural design <strong>co</strong>mpetition<br />

“Furthermore, having a leading light like<br />

David Trubridge involved in this event will<br />

ensure that New Zealand entries are judged to<br />

a particularly high international standard.”<br />

David said he was looking forward to judging<br />

the <strong>co</strong>mpetition. “I’m very interested in seeing<br />

what kind of clever designs New Zealand<br />

designers and architects can create,” he said.<br />

“There are a number of very talented and<br />

creative professionals in this <strong>co</strong>untry and a<br />

strong <strong>co</strong>llective of promising young designers.<br />

I’m certain there will be some great entries and<br />

am eager to see the fi nished results.”<br />

The Formica Formations <strong>co</strong>mpetition was<br />

unveiled earlier this month by The Laminex<br />

Group. The <strong>co</strong>mpetition aims to en<strong>co</strong>urage<br />

both experienced and emerging designers<br />

to pit their design talents against 10 of the<br />

world’s best architects. The <strong>co</strong>mpetition came<br />

about following a successful <strong>co</strong>llaboration in<br />

2008 between Formica US and the Centre for<br />

Contemporary Arts in Cincinnati.<br />

“World-renowned architects were invited<br />

to design a limited <strong>co</strong>llection of furniture,<br />

using Formica laminates and solid surface<br />

materials,” Nicky said. “Ten distinctive chairs<br />

– all museum pieces in their own right - were<br />

<strong>co</strong>nstructed using over 420m 2 of Formica.”<br />

Spurred on by the success of that project,<br />

Formica in New Zealand devised its<br />

own <strong>co</strong>mpetition for local architects and<br />

designers.<br />

The 2011 Formica Formations <strong>co</strong>mpetition<br />

requires entrants to submit design drawings<br />

for a piece of sculptural furniture that would<br />

use Formica brand materials. The <strong>co</strong>mpetition<br />

aims to celebrate and showcase the creativity<br />

of architects and designers throughout New<br />

Zealand.<br />

There are two entry categories – professional<br />

architects and designers, and emerging<br />

architects and designers. Individual and group<br />

submissions of up to four team members will<br />

be accepted. The Laminex Group will fabricate<br />

the winning design from each category for<br />

display at an offi cial awards ceremony later<br />

this year.<br />

Entries close on 31 July, with submissions<br />

and further information available at www.<br />

formicaformations.<strong>co</strong>.<strong>nz</strong>.

Winning With Wood<br />

Lockwood and Verda<br />

<strong>co</strong>mbine for showcase<br />

The Lockwood Group is marking its 60th<br />

anniversary by <strong>co</strong>mbining with Verda to stage<br />

a showcase of innovative residential design<br />

and building during Rugby World Cup 2011.<br />

Their showcase site, at the Lockwood village<br />

of show homes in Rotorua, will feature four<br />

different designs of houses, together with<br />

outdoor furniture and features by Verda.<br />

The site will be one of a wide range of<br />

showcase sites around New Zealand under<br />

the Winning With Wood programme, aimed<br />

particularly at showing some of the 85,000<br />

RWC visitors the many innovative uses of<br />

timber in New Zealand. Organised by NZ<br />

Trade & Enterprise, Winning With Wood is<br />

intended to promote exports of New Zealandmade<br />

timber products, as part of the Real<br />

New Zealand Showcase featuring 16 industry<br />

sectors.<br />

Lockwood and Verda’s site will be one<br />

of the largest in Winning With Wood and<br />

will feature an example of the innovative<br />

Lockwood E<strong>co</strong>Smart home, as well as Verda’s<br />

sustainably treated outdoor furniture, decking<br />

and panels.<br />

Lockwood Group marketing manager Melanie<br />

Short said the <strong>co</strong>mpany decided to participate<br />

in Winning With Wood because the group is an<br />

innovative, Kiwi organisation and has a strong<br />

export focus. “Verda and Lockwood have a<br />

strong mutual relationship – our products are<br />

<strong>co</strong>mplementary. We are really excited about<br />

the opportunity to meet with returning Kiwis<br />

and overseas visitors. We plan to ensure that<br />

during the showcase overseas visitors are<br />

greeted, wel<strong>co</strong>med and hosted.”<br />

For Verda, a much newer timber success<br />

story, Winning With Wood is an opportunity<br />

to present a medium-sized <strong>co</strong>mpany, with 60<br />

staff, to visitors from around the world. Verda’s<br />

Mathilde Carles said the <strong>co</strong>mpany, founded in<br />

2002, has been developing Australian and<br />

European export markets over the past two<br />

years and plans to grow its exports, especially<br />

of premium decking, from 25% of turnover to<br />

60-70% in the next four to fi ve years.<br />

“New Zealand is hosting one of the biggest<br />

sporting events, with 85,000 visitors from<br />

everywhere in the world. This is a good<br />

opportunity for a medium-sized <strong>co</strong>mpany,”<br />

she said.<br />

Kiwi Lumber<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmitted to high standards<br />

Kiwi Lumber is a privately owned New<br />

Zealand <strong>co</strong>mpany that operates three<br />

modern sawmills in Putaruru, Dannevirke<br />

and Masterton. The plants are strategically<br />

situated to take advantage of the close<br />

proximity to the large <strong>co</strong>mmercial plantations<br />

in the Hawkes Bay, Wairarapa and Central<br />

Plateau areas of the North Island.<br />

Kiwi Lumber, which produces a range of<br />

products specifi cally to meet the needs of<br />

manufacturers in the furniture, joinery,<br />

mouldings and building industries have<br />

recently taken possession of three Clark<br />

GEN2 8-tonne forklifts from NZ distributor,<br />

Clark Equipment New Zealand Limited.<br />

“Kiwi Lumber is <strong>co</strong>mmitted to understanding<br />

the needs of its customers, so it was<br />

gratifying to find that Clark Equipment<br />

has a like-minded approach and were<br />

responsive towards finding solutions to<br />

improve our <strong>co</strong>mpetitiveness,” says Kiwi<br />

Lumber’s Putaruru Site Manager, Grant<br />

Williams. “This is extremely important,<br />

as our customers operate in a <strong>co</strong>mpetitive<br />

global market and we also vie with other<br />

international suppliers for their business.”<br />

The three GEN2 forklifts have been supplied<br />

with 1350mm lumber forks and will be used<br />

for loading green and kiln dried timber<br />

products on to T&T units. Also as a yard<br />

fork for unloading dry timber, stacking and<br />

feeding in and out of fi lleting and de-fi lleting<br />

stations. As well, the forklifts will bring<br />

dry semi-processed timber into the planer<br />

operation and take fi nished goods out to the<br />

pre-despatch storage area.<br />

The GEN2 are particularly suited to<br />

yard applications and in particular,<br />

heavy manufacturing, stevedoring and<br />

warehousing. With the <strong>co</strong>mbination of a<br />

100HP engine, fully automatic 3-speed<br />

‘smart shift’ transmission, wet disc brakes<br />

and rugged chassis design, the GEN2 C80<br />

provides the exceptional performance,<br />

manoeuvrability and durability.<br />

The GEN2 provides maximum visibility and<br />

hydraulic cushioning valves to reduce shock<br />

and vibration. The operator <strong>co</strong>mpartment<br />

is state of the art and features among other<br />

things, a fully adjustable suspension seat,<br />

a tilt steering <strong>co</strong>lumn and hood mounted<br />

hydraulic <strong>co</strong>ntrols. A parking brake that<br />

disengages the transmission when applied<br />

is a major safety feature.<br />

Kiwi Lumber process radiata logs that are<br />

milled entirely from renewable plantations,<br />

all of which <strong>co</strong>mply with New Zealand’s<br />

environmental management policies. “Our<br />

logs are purchased from these leading<br />

forestry <strong>co</strong>mpanies, allowing us to secure<br />

grades of logs that are best suited to our<br />

customer’s requirements,” says Grant<br />

Williams. “With the increasing international<br />

awareness of the desirability to harvest and<br />

use a renewable resource, Kiwi Lumber<br />

has expanded its export markets and now<br />

supplies clients in North America, Asia,<br />

Europe, Australia and throughout New<br />

Zealand.”<br />

3D Kitchen sponsor<br />

TAFE Awards<br />

Chris and Rose Adams, owners<br />

of 3D Kitchen, attended the<br />

Holmesglen TAFE annual student<br />

achievement award dinner in<br />

Melbourne on 18th of May. The<br />

Holmesglem Institute of TAFE is<br />

one of Australia’s largest training<br />

institutions training students in<br />

the joinery, furniture and design<br />

trades. 3D Kitchen has been<br />

associated with the TAFE for<br />

many years now and has been the<br />

main award sponsor for the past<br />

fi ve years.<br />

It was a very enjoyable evening<br />

and a unique opportunity to see<br />

the extremely high degree of skill<br />

these students have achieved. 3D<br />

Kitchen provides over $3,000<br />

worth of sponsorship to the TAFE<br />

annually and it is a delight to be<br />

able to provide sponsorship to such<br />

worthy recipients. Congratulations<br />

to all winners and in particular to<br />

Ruben Becker (pictured above) on<br />

winning the 3D Kitchen prize.<br />

3D Kitchen also provides its full<br />

design and production software<br />

to the TAFE for student training<br />

purposes. Because of the very<br />

limited time the TAFE has to<br />

teach its various modules, the<br />

speed at which this software can<br />

be learned is a key reason for<br />

the TAFE choosing 3D Kitchen<br />

as part of its cabinetmaking and<br />

joinery teaching.<br />

new products to be<br />

shown at Conference<br />

ASSA ABLOY New Zealand wel<strong>co</strong>mes all<br />

Master Joiners to their stand at the Rotorua<br />

Master Joiners Conference, June 23-25. It is our<br />

pleasure to <strong>co</strong>ntinue to offer quality products<br />

and service with the Interlock - Folding and<br />

Sliding range.<br />

The most recent additions to the Interlock<br />

– Folding and Sliding range includes the<br />

Weatherfold Window 20 and Single Run<br />

80. These will be on our stand to check<br />

out, alongside some of our well known and<br />

established folding and sliding products.<br />

Weatherfold Window 20 is an extension<br />

of the proven Window Servery System. Its<br />

self draining, <strong>co</strong>ncealed guide uses modern<br />

technology and provides superior functionality<br />

while allowing it to be in<strong>co</strong>rporated into<br />

traditional timber joinery. Two sash thickness<br />

options are available to suit both single and<br />

double glazed applications.<br />

The Single Run 80 has had a hanger in the<br />

market for some time but a new and <strong>co</strong>st<br />

effi cient 80kg track is now available. This<br />

track, in mill or anodized <strong>finishes</strong>, offers<br />

a smooth look with no seal grooves and is<br />

ideally suited to shutters and lighter door<br />

applications.<br />

Sensational was the general <strong>co</strong>nsensus<br />

amongst exhibitors at the end of this year’s<br />

interzum. With 52,400 trade visitors from 147<br />

<strong>co</strong>untries, the leading international trade fair<br />

for the furniture supplier industry was able to<br />

announce growth of 13%. The internationality<br />

of the visitor structure, traditionally always<br />

high anyway, increased signifi cantly this year<br />

with a plus of 24%. “I’m absolutely thrilled.<br />

What’s been happening here over the last<br />

few days is incredible. For four days, the<br />

exhibitors have been showing what I can only<br />

describe as a fi rework display. The industry has<br />

been celebrating itself – with good reason,”<br />

<strong>co</strong>ncludes Frank Haubold, product manager of<br />

interzum and director of the imm <strong>co</strong>logne.<br />

“With this interzum, Koelnmesse has defi nitely<br />

underlined its position as a bea<strong>co</strong>n for the<br />

furniture industry. I don’t believe there is<br />

any other trade fair venue in the world where<br />

three absolute leading events for the respective<br />

sectors take place so successfully, in such<br />

<strong>co</strong>ncentrated form and in such a brief space<br />

of time. We are creating precedents for an<br />

extremely promising future,” says a visibly<br />

satisfi ed Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse.<br />

This year’s interzum was the international<br />

meeting point for the supplier industry. The<br />

mood was extremely good, exhibitors were<br />

able to make new <strong>co</strong>ntacts and boost business.<br />

And visitors had the opportunity to get a<br />

<strong>co</strong>mprehensive overview of what the sector<br />

has to offer. There were sophisticated newly<br />

developed products on show in all segments.<br />

As in the past, it was mostly decision-makers<br />

who came to interzum, an important aspect<br />

repeatedly applauded by exhibitors. “It was a<br />

very good fair for us. The number of visitors<br />

was much higher than last time, and we’re very<br />

satisfi ed with the quality of the visitors as well.<br />

In our opinion, it was a fi rst-rate interzum,”<br />

<strong>co</strong>ncludes Wolfgang Steib, executive board<br />

member at Hettich.<br />

And it’s not just the exhibitors who are satisfi ed<br />

with the quantity and quality of the visitors.<br />

The visitors were equally enthusiastic about<br />

the <strong>co</strong>mprehensive product spectrum on<br />

show in Cologne. “It was an extraordinary<br />

interzum! Great atmosphere, fantastic fl air,<br />

attractive exhibitors with some very individual<br />

presentations, and some very interesting<br />

proposals for own idea pool,” <strong>co</strong>mmented one<br />

trade visitor from abroad.<br />

The supporting programme for this year’s fair<br />

was more extensive than ever before and went<br />

down extremely well with visitors. In particular,<br />

the se<strong>co</strong>nd edition of “innovation of interior”,<br />

a forum for interior architects, tradesmen,<br />

architects, designers and developers, was a<br />

huge success. Together with Professor Hartmut<br />

A. Raiser and Antonius Quodt, Koelnmesse<br />

created a groundbreaking special exhibition<br />

on materials, fi nishes and lighting.<br />

“In our opinion, the ‘innovation of interior’<br />

<strong>co</strong>ncept is a great success. We were delighted<br />

to wel<strong>co</strong>me so many visitors, principally<br />

architects, but lots of visitors from other target<br />

groups as well, and call their attention to our<br />

innovations. They included lots of new <strong>co</strong>ntacts<br />

for whom our presence in Hall 4.2 was the<br />

starting point before going to our booth in Hall<br />

7 for more in-depth information,” <strong>co</strong>ncludes<br />

Julia Sohler, Marketing Communications<br />

Offi cer at Blum GmbH.<br />

This years “interzum award: material<br />

innovations and design”, presented for the<br />

fi fth time by Koelnmesse in <strong>co</strong>llaboration with<br />

red dot, again honoured some of the industry’s<br />

most outstanding innovations. The top-notch<br />

jury awarded prizes to a total of 43 products,<br />

which were presented in their own special<br />

exhibition on the boulevard for the duration<br />

of the trade fair.<br />

sinks & surrounds<br />

A focal point of the kitchen, the<br />

benchtop and sinkware instantly<br />

create the style of the kitchen. High<br />

functionality and high aesthetics are<br />

a must for most, often tempered by<br />

price where <strong>co</strong>st effective solutions<br />

are required.<br />

And the price can vary <strong>co</strong>nsiderably<br />

across the range of materials<br />

and designs available. We look at<br />

stainless steel, solid timber, laminate<br />

and synthetic options on the market<br />

as well as some of the accessories<br />

available and processes involved in<br />

manufacturing and installing benches<br />

and sinks.<br />

Infi nity benchtops are produced via e<strong>co</strong>nomies of<br />

scale. They <strong>co</strong>me to us prefabricated as blanks and<br />

only require joining together on site. A signifi cant<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntributor to the high <strong>co</strong>st of acrylic tops is the<br />

labour required to fabricate benchtops from scratch<br />

out of raw sheet. Infi nity avoids this lengthy expensive<br />

fabrication process, which allows us to offer a price<br />

advantage with no <strong>co</strong>mpromise on quality as well as<br />

a short lead time.<br />

Seamless joins<br />

A major plus of Infi nity tops is that the joins are almost<br />

impossible to detect.<br />

Hygienic<br />

Infi nity is non-porous therefore hygienic as bacteria<br />

can not harbour in the material.<br />

Easy to Clean<br />

Cleaning with simple soap and water, or Spray ‘n’<br />

Wipe type products. The surface can also handle mild<br />

abrasives like Jiff (which actually does the surface<br />

good as it will remove any minor abrasions and scuff<br />

marks.) Acrylic surfaces are non-porous therefore<br />

will not stain.<br />

Re<strong>co</strong>verable<br />

Infi nity tops can be brought back to their original fi nish<br />

by a simple sand and polish.<br />

Touch<br />

Smooth as silk and not as <strong>co</strong>ld to the touch as stone<br />

or stone <strong>co</strong>mposites.<br />

Colour Fast<br />

Infi nity tops being 100% acrylic are less likely to<br />

fade when exposed to normal levels of UV. One of<br />

the many benefi ts is, that your Infi nity top can easily<br />

be restored to its original beauty many years later by<br />

simply sanding and buffi ng. Consult any one of our<br />

accredited installers to facilitate this work.<br />

Guaranteed to Last<br />

Häfele offers a 10 year warranty on Infi nity bench<br />

tops.<br />

The latest BLANCO range of sinks and taps include<br />

Silgranit Puradur II sinks which are resistant to dirt<br />

deposits, stains, metal abrasion as well as being scratch<br />

resistant, heat resistant up to 280°C and resistant to<br />

impact. The new satin stone fi nish with its unique<br />

properties helps to repel water, preventing the build-up<br />

of surface deposits, stains and lime scale and is easier<br />

to care for than virtually any other surface.<br />

The seamless nature of Infi nity <strong>co</strong>mbined with the<br />

unique natural look of Blan<strong>co</strong>Silgranit Puradur II<br />

sinks and taps, create an unbeatable duo in design<br />

standards.<br />

Mercer Products is proud to remain a<br />

New Zealand manufacturer of Stainless<br />

Steel sinkware and our Christchurch<br />

facility produces a great number of the<br />

excellent items that we sell.<br />

“Cold off the press” might seem strange<br />

at first, but the pressing process is<br />

actually a <strong>co</strong>ld one, done under immense<br />

pressure with utmost care. The annealing<br />

process (pictured in the background<br />

right) is a heat treatment wherein a<br />

material is altered, relieving internal<br />

stresses, refining the structure by making<br />

it homogeneous, and improving <strong>co</strong>ld<br />

working properties.<br />

Our factory also allows us to produce<br />

sinks and sinkware from the durable and<br />

resistant 316 grade stainless steel. Greater<br />

resistance to pitting and <strong>co</strong>rrosion over<br />

regular 304 grade makes 316 the choice<br />

in tough environments, labs and medical<br />

facilities. You will be able to tell the sink<br />

is 316 grade as it<br />

will have this logo<br />

etched on it.<br />

go local call from Mercer<br />

New Zealand’s biggest sink manufacturer is calling on the Government to think local when it <strong>co</strong>ntracts suppliers for the mammoth<br />

housing rebuild in Christchurch. Mercer Products, which manufactures and supplies kitchen sinks, laundry tubs and their “Bisonne”<br />

laminate and “borelli” solid surface benching materials, is currently supporting its trade customers who in turn are tendering for<br />

Department of Building and Housing <strong>co</strong>ntracts.<br />

If they are successful, the Lunns<br />

Rd factory would be able to extend<br />

its 40 hour week, employing more<br />

staff. General manager David<br />

Mayell said allocation of <strong>co</strong>ntracts<br />

to local business would provide<br />

a much-needed stimulus to the<br />

Christchurch e<strong>co</strong>nomy.<br />

“For us, there are opportunities<br />

to assist with both the 10,000<br />

temporary houses that are<br />

earmarked for the city, and also the<br />

thousands of homes that are likely<br />

to be demolished and rebuilt.<br />

The potential for well-positioned<br />

Christchurch manufacturers and<br />

suppliers to be part of the re<strong>co</strong>very<br />

is huge. ”<br />

“It is an excellent opportunity<br />

for policy makers and businesses<br />

to support Christchurch manufacturing<br />

and thus employ people<br />

that make up our Christchurch<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmunity” Mayell says.<br />

The business currently employs<br />

50 staff across the <strong>co</strong>untry,<br />

including 15 at its 3,000 m2 local<br />

factory. The remainder work from<br />

its centralised warehouse and<br />

distribution centre in Hamilton,<br />

which also houses its customer<br />

service centre. Mercer’s products<br />

are warehoused in the both<br />

Hamilton and in Christchurch.<br />

Currently around 70%, domestic<br />

sales still make up the largest<br />

proportion of business with<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmercial sales taking up the<br />

balance. Mercer’s name is part<br />

of the fabric of Christchurch’s<br />

heritage. The manufacturer dates<br />

back nearly 130 years, established<br />

in 1882 by James Mercer in Tuam<br />

St before subsequently shifting to<br />

Moorhouse Ave.<br />

In 2002 Mercer Products built a<br />

new purpose build sink factory,<br />

on the Lunns Rd property shared<br />

with its allied <strong>co</strong>mpany, Mercer<br />

Stainless Ltd which services the<br />

dairy sector.<br />

The move to purpose-built<br />

premises suffered a severe blow<br />

just short of a year later when fi re<br />

damaged the factory’s fi nishing<br />

room and the entire roof, causing<br />

upheaval for the following six<br />

months. Mayell, who’s been<br />

general manager for the past 11<br />

years, has vivid memories of the<br />

work required to keep the factory<br />

onstream.<br />

While Mercer is the biggest sink<br />

manufacturer in New Zealand, it<br />

too has climbed the heady heights<br />

of the building and renovations<br />

boom but suffered falling volumes<br />

during the e<strong>co</strong>nomic downturn.<br />

Despite this, Mercer Products<br />

in New Zealand has remained<br />

profitable – this being due to<br />

its strong market position, its<br />

quality product and ability to meet<br />

customer requirements.<br />

“We’ve been working 40 hours<br />

a week but an automated factory<br />

like ours has potential to greatly<br />

increase production as required<br />

so that we <strong>co</strong>uld <strong>co</strong>nceivably<br />

manufacture around the clock,”<br />

Mayell said. It’s that investment<br />

in sophisticated plant and<br />

equipment, which helps keep<br />

Mercer Products <strong>co</strong>mpetitive in<br />

the face of increasing imports – its<br />

largest rival.<br />

“By manufacturing locally we can<br />

keep our raw materials and fi nished<br />

goods inventory at required market<br />

levels for supply, and keep local<br />

people employed.”<br />

Sinks can be integrated into custom stainless steel benchtops from<br />

Burns & Ferrall. The benchtops are made from 304-grade steel, and<br />

are available in a range of textures, including brushed, satin and<br />

classic fi nishes.<br />

a true trend setter<br />

stainless steel benchtops<br />

Every decade is defi ned by different fashions, but there is<br />

one material that has endured the changing trends in kitchen<br />

design. Stainless steel is in fact even more sought after today<br />

than it was in the 50’s. But it is fair to say today’s kitchen<br />

benchtops and sinks are a far cry from those early models.<br />

The latest designs from Burns & Ferrall refl ect the increasing<br />

high-tech nature of the modern kitchen.<br />

Just as kitchen designs have be<strong>co</strong>me more streamlined in<br />

recent years, so have material palettes be<strong>co</strong>me more refi ned.<br />

And one of the most noticeable trends is the move towards<br />

raw materials that provide a crisp, sleek look. Burns &<br />

Ferrall’s custom stainless steel benching is transforming<br />

modern kitchens. The benchtops, which are made from highgrade<br />

304 stainless steel, once only seen on a sink bench or<br />

in a <strong>co</strong>mmercial kitchen, is now the material of choice for an<br />

increasing number of homeowners.<br />

Burns & Ferrall believe the growing demand for stainless steel<br />

surfaces can be attributed to the sleek, <strong>co</strong>ntemporary aesthetics<br />

and its renowned benefi ts. Stainless steel is a highly durable<br />

and hygienic surface – one that won’t chip or stain. In fact,<br />

many designers say the more it wears, the better it looks.<br />

Burns & Ferrall, a specialist stainless steel benchtop<br />

manufacturer offer new fi nishes and plenty of s<strong>co</strong>pe for<br />

designers. As well as the Classic and Satin fi nishes, a variety<br />

of de<strong>co</strong>rative textured surfaces are available. Custom stainless<br />

steel benchtops also <strong>co</strong>me with a choice of up stand and fascia<br />

profi les, and may in<strong>co</strong>rporate sink bowls.<br />

FRANKE LARGO<br />

The centre of a good kitchen<br />

Proving that big benefits can <strong>co</strong>me in small packages, Franke has developed an<br />

exciting new sink that’s ergonomically designed to maximise every millimetre of<br />

available space. The result is a surprisingly spacious bowl that fits into a smaller<br />

than average cabinet – making it perfect those looking to maximise storage space.<br />

The new Largo LAX 110 45 boasts ultra-modern looks and generous proportions,<br />

yet the bowl squeezes perfectly within a slender 500mm-wide base unit.<br />

Undermounted sinks are essential ingredients for achieving a sleek, streamlined<br />

kitchen design and are particularly stunning when <strong>co</strong>mbined with granite, wood<br />

and other solid surfaces. With their silky stainless steel finish, the five new Largo<br />

models are a great example of the undermounted look working its magic.<br />

CDK Stone makes digital measuring simpler!<br />

CDK Stone New Zealand Ltd, based<br />

on Auckland’s North Shore, is owner<br />

operated and is dedicated to bringing “Quality<br />

Diamond Tooling Solutions” to their customers<br />

to help them process stone both effi ciently and<br />

<strong>co</strong>st effectively.<br />

The <strong>co</strong>mpany offers an extensive range of stone<br />

processors’ tools that will get the job done<br />

from start to fi nish including cutting blades,<br />

abrasives, profi ling tools, handling equipment,<br />

adhesives, sealers and cleaners.<br />

Included in their range of products that will<br />

improve and stream-line the stone industry<br />

are the Proliner ® Series Measuring Devices,<br />

the world’s leading digitizer in 2D and 3D<br />

measurements. The Proliner ® Series uses the<br />

Proliner ® Principle which is very simple:<br />

measuring with a wire.<br />

At the end of the length of measuring wire is a<br />

metal measuring pen. By simply marking the<br />

relevant points with the pen, for example the<br />

<strong>co</strong>rners of a kitchen <strong>co</strong>untertop, the points are<br />

directly translated into a digital DXF CAD fi le.<br />

Measurements can be made of even the most<br />

<strong>co</strong>mplex of shapes to an accuracy of 0.5mm in<br />

just se<strong>co</strong>nds saving time and reducing errors.<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 24<br />

The digital drawing that is produced can<br />

then be used to operate your CNC machine,<br />

print your plots or be used as a base for your<br />

design. To view a demonstration on using the<br />

Proliner ® go to http://www.youtube.<strong>co</strong>m/user/<br />

ProdimInternational#p/f<br />

The Proliner ® can be used easily by a single<br />

person being <strong>co</strong>mpact and easy to carry. It<br />

reduces time spent on-site taking measurements,<br />

and ensures measurements taken are accurate<br />

and reliable. The Proliner ® is an invaluable<br />

investment that will pay for itself for many<br />

years to <strong>co</strong>me.<br />

By simply marking the<br />

relevant points with the pen,<br />

for example the <strong>co</strong>rners of a<br />

kitchen <strong>co</strong>untertop, the points<br />

are directly translated into a<br />

digital DXF CAD fi le.<br />

CDK Stone customers who have purchased<br />

the Proliner ® to date are more than satisfi ed<br />

with it’s performance. And should the need<br />

ever arise that repairs need to be made as<br />

part of their <strong>co</strong>mmitment to customer service<br />

CDK Stone carry a loan machine for that rare<br />

occasion.<br />

CDK cares for your stone<br />

When it <strong>co</strong>mes to caring for stone kitchen<br />

benchtops CDK Stone brings you<br />

Lithofin, a product range that has been<br />

developed in Germany over the past 50 years<br />

and has be<strong>co</strong>me synonymous with quality.<br />

CDK highly re<strong>co</strong>mmends that new natural<br />

stone tops are sealed using a high quality<br />

impregnating sealer to largely prevent liquid<br />

pollutants from penetrating the surface – the<br />

Lithofi n Stain-Stop range has been designed for<br />

this purpose and is available in both water and<br />

solvent based products. The application process<br />

is easy, and with <strong>co</strong>rrect maintenance will help<br />

protect stone for up to 20 years.<br />

As natural and engineered stone in kitchen<br />

benchtops are subjected to heavy wear, they<br />

need maintaining. Regular cleaning with<br />

Lithofi n MN Easy-Clean will not only help<br />

remove grease, oil and general dirt but will<br />

also help enhance the natural <strong>co</strong>lour and lustre<br />

of the stone. MN Easy-Clean <strong>co</strong>mes in a ready<br />

to use spray bottle and has been designed<br />

specifi cally to help support the effectiveness<br />

of the impregnating sealer which in turn will<br />

extend the lifetime of the natural stone top.<br />

To keep stone benchtops looking polished and<br />

brand new, especially marble, Lithofi n MN<br />

Polish Cream <strong>co</strong>mes to the rescue. It produces<br />

a sheen, enhances the natural appearance and<br />

produces a protective layer to help stop any<br />

pollutants from penetrating the stone surface.<br />

Used monthly and after cleaning MN Polish<br />

Cream will also make blemishes and scratches<br />

less visible.<br />

As an ideal gift for new stone benchtop owners,<br />

CDK Stone have available an extensive<br />

Lithofi n Carekit that includes:<br />

• MN Polish Cream White 125mL<br />

• MN Power Clean 500mL<br />

• MN Easy Clean 500mL<br />

• Non-abrasive nylon scrubbing sponges<br />

• Micro fi bre cleaning cloths<br />

• Care Instructions<br />

CDK Stone are the exclusive NZ distributor of<br />

Lithofi n products, and offer a training service<br />

to applicators and resellers.<br />

Appliances<br />

and sinkware<br />

TEKA RANGE<br />

Totara Marketing is pleased to announce the introduction of a select<br />

range of sinks and appliances from our Teka range.<br />

Teka sinks and appliances are available in over 125 <strong>co</strong>untries worldwide,<br />

across fi ve <strong>co</strong>ntinents, and are backed by over 80 years experience.<br />

A household name in Europe, Teka is synonymous with quality and<br />

performance across all sectors that it <strong>co</strong>mpetes in.<br />

SINKS<br />

At the heart of every discerning kitchen is discerning sink wear with Teka<br />

fi tting this bill, however not carrying the price tag you would expect.<br />

Manufactured in 18/10 surgical grade stainless steel for premium quality.<br />

A selection of bowl & drainer and top or under mounted sink options<br />

are available to cater to any requirements.<br />

APPLIANCES<br />

The appliance range includes multifunction ovens in fi ngerprint resistant<br />

stainless steel, ceramic and gas hobs, induction hobs and range hoods<br />

with extremely quiet extraction.<br />

The Teka steam oven has been designed with the reservoir sitting on the<br />

top of the oven, so that the standard width oven lay will fi t inside the<br />

oven. Unique <strong>co</strong>mpared to other European brands where oven width is<br />

often <strong>co</strong>mpromised to fi t the reservoir.<br />

Teka’s attention to design detail ensures that when you look around a<br />

kitchen you’ll notice that the digital displays on <strong>co</strong>ok tops and ovens<br />

match, the luster of the stainless steel used on the gas hob is the same<br />

as the oven and the sink. Often a mismatch of appliances leads to<br />

differing stainless fi nishes throughout the kitchen whereas the Teka<br />

range uniquely avoids this.


PROJECT RANGE<br />

Now Totara Marketing is offering sinkwear and appliance solutions<br />

catering to the developer and home makeover market, where quality<br />

and <strong>co</strong>st effectiveness are factors.<br />

SINKS<br />

All project sinks are .9mm 18/10 304 stainless steel, which is above the<br />

NZ expected standard, making this range not only affordable but reliable<br />

and of the highest quality.<br />

Included in the range is the slim line series, perfect for narrow bench<br />

tops, <strong>co</strong>ming with the option of single, one ¼ & double bowl with<br />

drainer. The 500 series includes all standard sink formats, including a<br />

one ¼ bowl model without drainer, popular for apartments and smaller<br />

kitchens. Our Project range is extensive & can cater and <strong>co</strong>ver the needs<br />

of all requirements.<br />

APPLIANCES<br />

Totara is pleased to introduce the Project range of appliances, which are<br />

affordable <strong>co</strong>ming from leading manufacturers. The range <strong>co</strong>nsists of an<br />

8 function oven, touch <strong>co</strong>ntrol ceramic hob (including a two burner touch<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntrol hob) through to gas hobs and a selection of range hoods.<br />

* SPECIAL<br />

meeting benchlines with a TN38<br />

One of the better known specialists of custom built benchtops using high pressure de<strong>co</strong>rative laminate are Franklin Laminates Ltd<br />

based in Drury, Auckland. Established in 1985, the business is owned by the Smith family headed by Graeme Smith. It has been a<br />

while since JOINERS Magazine last looked at Franklin Laminates so Bob Nordgren caught up with Graeme recently to fi nd out<br />

what’s new.<br />

Although Franklin Laminates<br />

manufacture benchtops for the<br />

<strong>co</strong>nsumer their forte is as a provider<br />

to the trades. There have been two<br />

more recent developments that<br />

have impacted positively on the<br />

growth of the business. The fi rst<br />

was the establishment some seven<br />

years ago of the Benchtops Direct<br />

brand. “This was to cater for those<br />

throughout New Zealand who<br />

wanted to have a replacement HPL<br />

benchtop made specifically for<br />

their home at good prices. With<br />

targeted television advertising this<br />

brand has grown over the last few<br />

years.” Graeme says.<br />

For All Your Cutting<br />

Tool Requirements<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 28<br />

“With these benchtops being<br />

custom made, largely from<br />

Wilson Art Laminate from<br />

Parburys, we are also able to<br />

provide <strong>co</strong>nsultation, design<br />

and pattern making services.<br />

We can supply appliances, sink<br />

inserts and faucets and offer a<br />

door replacement service. We<br />

take pride in our installation<br />

expertise and have the experience<br />

to handle all <strong>co</strong>mmercial and<br />

domestic maintenance projects as<br />

required.”<br />

The se<strong>co</strong>nd development has<br />

been providing for all the HPL<br />

benchtop requirements for Mitre<br />

10 stores, New Zealand wide<br />

through Stewart S<strong>co</strong>tt Cabinetry<br />

who supply both fl at pack or built<br />

up kitchens for Mitre 10.<br />

“We process 30mm and 36mm<br />

thick benchtops in longer lengths<br />

for more flexibility in a range<br />

of some thirteen <strong>co</strong>lours. The<br />

challenge for us has been to keep<br />

up with demand and <strong>co</strong>ntinue to<br />

produce a high quality product<br />

for both Stewart S<strong>co</strong>tt Cabinetry<br />

and Benchtops Direct.” <strong>co</strong>mments<br />

Graeme.<br />

To meet this challenge the <strong>co</strong>mpany<br />

turned to their long time supplier<br />

of specialist machinery Steve<br />

Fifi eld from Pro Form NZ Ltd.<br />

“Pro Form have always been great<br />

for quality both in the machinery<br />

and the service Steve provides. It’s<br />

<strong>co</strong>mforting dealing with a Kiwi<br />

manufacturing machinery in New<br />

Zealand – with the experience of<br />

New Zealand <strong>co</strong>nditions to go<br />

with it.” says Graeme.<br />

In February this year they installed<br />

a brand new TN 38 Flow through<br />

post forming machine from Pro<br />

Form.<br />

Graeme explains “In a nutshell,<br />

this machine provides for a more<br />

exact method of post forming. It’s<br />

effi cient and gives a guaranteed<br />

result. A key to the machine<br />

for us was the ability to form a<br />

tighter radius <strong>co</strong>nsistently. In fact<br />

the machine was purpose built<br />

to meet this requirement. It was<br />

a real plus having a very good<br />

machinery manufacturer like Pro<br />

Form who <strong>co</strong>uld deliver what we<br />

wanted and give us a <strong>co</strong>mpetitive<br />

advantage.”<br />

The TN 38 Flow through <strong>co</strong>mes<br />

with three primary forming stations<br />

plus two se<strong>co</strong>ndary forming<br />

stations and is solidly built from<br />

welded steel plate <strong>co</strong>nstruction.<br />

The PVA glue application is<br />

electronically <strong>co</strong>ntrolled and this<br />

enables the TN 38 to be operated in<br />

full automatic mode “Productivity<br />

with this machine has been great<br />

and more importantly the precision<br />

the machine offers means we can<br />

be assured of <strong>co</strong>nsistent quality.<br />

This is particularly important<br />

when producing larger volumes.”<br />

“making life easier”<br />

Attention all kitchen installers, benchtop manufacturers,<br />

shop fi tters, kitchen & cabinet manufacturers: have you<br />

experienced the benefi ts of using ZIPBOLT innovation yet?<br />

The ZIPBOLT range now includes over 20 different <strong>co</strong>n-necting<br />

solutions and has earned many design awards including the 2007<br />

reddot Design Award ... here’s why!<br />

5805<br />

What is a ZIPBBOLT UT Connector?<br />

The Zipbolt UT Connectors have a unique integrated gearing system<br />

driven by a universal 5mm Hex drive which offers easier, stronger<br />

and faster unrivalled tensioning power. Allows the user to tension the<br />

bolt with a hand-held hex driver or power drill in se<strong>co</strong>nds, eliminating<br />

the diffi cult handling and time <strong>co</strong>nsuming problems associated with<br />

using a spanner.<br />

What about the strength?<br />

Zipbolt’s mechanism is EXTREMELY strong and in addition to this,<br />

the mechanism is a geared one which means that the joint is actually<br />

tighter than the pressure on the driver feels! Add all this together with<br />

the new ALL METAL Housing and ZIPBOLT really is a winner!<br />

What about boards thinner than 30mm?<br />

No problems there, just use the 5808 UT MINI Zipbolt: all the same<br />

design but just SO slim-line it will join boards as thin as 16mm!<br />

The 5808 UT Mini was the result of an engineering challenge to<br />

retain the strength of the Zipbolt mechanism but scale it all down<br />

... we did it!<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 30<br />

5808 Mini Connector<br />

Do they really save time?<br />

Absolutely! In trials we proved it over 75% quicker even than ratchet<br />

spanners! You only have to ask those that use them to hear that they<br />

really do save time and effort.<br />

But they’re more expensive than standard worktop <strong>co</strong>nnectors?<br />

We answer NO! If you accurately put your time to ac<strong>co</strong>unt and allow<br />

for it, you will fi nd that ZIPBOLT saves you money. Not only this,<br />

it also ensures installation on site is SO much quicker: SAVE TIME<br />

WHEN TIME IS MONEY!<br />

FINISHES<br />

making the kitchen and bathroom look just right<br />

When creating a new or<br />

renovated kitchen or<br />

bathroom a key decision in the<br />

fi nal appearance is what fi nish to<br />

use. This is not only important<br />

for aesthetic reasons but also for<br />

practical reasons.<br />

When it <strong>co</strong>mes to paint fi nishes<br />

oil based paints have traditionally<br />

been the paint type favoured but<br />

with the advances made in paint<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 34<br />

technology in recent years this<br />

is not now necessarily the case.<br />

Acrylic water based paints have<br />

in particular made big inroads<br />

into this market. All sorts of paints<br />

can now be <strong>co</strong>nsidered be it for<br />

walls, ceilings, cabinetry and<br />

even painted glass splashbacks.<br />

They are easier to use and offer<br />

characteristics not unlike oil based<br />

paints<br />

The <strong>co</strong>mmon issues to deal with in<br />

the kitchen and bathroom are good<br />

preparation of the surfaces to be<br />

painted, dealing with grease and<br />

mould and exposure to moisture,<br />

splashing or steam. Dealing with<br />

these issues and making sure you<br />

have a durable, cleanable surface<br />

has been to the forfront for paint<br />

manufacturers. Preparation of the<br />

surface to get as smooth a surface<br />

as possible and using purpose made<br />

under<strong>co</strong>ats, largely to remove the<br />

mould element and give good<br />

adhesion, is re<strong>co</strong>mmended by<br />

manufacturers.<br />

Oil based paints have the<br />

advantage of durability but are<br />

not so e<strong>co</strong> friendly with potential<br />

problems with toxins and odour.<br />

Acrylic water based paints have<br />

been developed to give enamel<br />

like fi nishes without these sorts<br />

of problems and the products now<br />

available are signifi cantly better<br />

than even a decade ago.<br />

When it <strong>co</strong>mes to paint sheens<br />

there are a variety to <strong>co</strong>nsider for<br />

different applications. While most<br />

manufacturers have developed all<br />

paint fi nishes with good cleaning<br />

qualities, the general rule is<br />

the shinier the paint finish the<br />

better it will stand up to washing<br />

and cleaning. In kitchens and<br />

bathrooms a semi gloss at least<br />

is the norm while a fl at fi nish is<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmonly used for ceilings.<br />

Gloss paint because of its high<br />

refl ectivity is used for effect on<br />

cabinetry, trim and furniture.<br />

An interesting issue is the<br />

susceptibility of water borne<br />

interior products to surfactant<br />

leaching. This is an appearance<br />

issue not one of durability. Have<br />

a look at the article from Resene<br />

in this feature for more details and<br />

ways to avoid it.<br />

What follows are products<br />

re<strong>co</strong>mmended by some of the<br />

leading paint suppliers from their<br />

particular ranges. These products<br />

are the result of intensive research<br />

and development and offer both<br />

the trade and the <strong>co</strong>nsumer<br />

significant advances in paint<br />

technology, sheens and <strong>co</strong>lours.<br />

For oil <strong>co</strong>atings and stains for<br />

wood there is the range from a<br />

leading German manufacturer<br />

(Osmo).<br />

The key to a good fi nish as with<br />

any job is to use the right product<br />

for the job at hand. The best<br />

advice is talk to the manufacturer<br />

if unsure. They have a wealth of<br />

expert information on tap. With<br />

the multitude of products now<br />

available this is more than just<br />

advice, it is <strong>co</strong>mmon sense.


Resene<br />

kitchen & bathroom range<br />

Resene makes a range of Environmental<br />

Choice approved products to help your<br />

kitchen and bathroom keep its good looks<br />

and clean surfaces. Resene SpaceCote<br />

Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom and<br />

Resene Lustacryl Kitchen & Bathroom<br />

(semi-gloss) <strong>co</strong>mbine antibacterial silver<br />

protection and MoulDefender mould inhibitor<br />

– perfect for minimising unwanted nasties in<br />

kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. Use Resene<br />

SpaceCote Low Sheen on your walls and<br />

<strong>co</strong>mplement it with Resene Lustacryl on your<br />

trims and doors.<br />

We also tend to clean the walls in kitchens and<br />

bathrooms more than many other areas of our<br />

homes. Resene Interior Paintwork Cleaner<br />

is a labour-saving, non-dulling, neutral cleaner<br />

designed for use on all interior painted surfaces.<br />

Quick and easy to use, it dries film-free,<br />

eliminating the need for rinsing. For cleaning<br />

instructions, see the Resene Caring for Your<br />

Paint Finish brochure free from Resene<br />

ColorShops or available from the Resene<br />

website, www.resene.<strong>co</strong>.<strong>nz</strong>.<br />

And to keep your kitchen ceiling looking<br />

cleaner, Environmental Choice approved<br />

Resene SpaceCote Flat Fly Deterrent<br />

dis<strong>co</strong>urages fl ies from sitting on the surface,<br />

reducing the appearance of fl y spots. Resene<br />

Fly Deterrent can also be added into other<br />

Resene waterborne paint <strong>finishes</strong>, such<br />

as Resene Lustacryl, for use on trims and<br />

joinery.<br />

For a <strong>co</strong>nsistently <strong>co</strong>loured finish specify<br />

Resene ArmourCat, an acid catalysed<br />

fi nish designed especially for areas such as<br />

spraypainted cabinetry and benches. This<br />

product is formulated to tint accurately to the<br />

Resene <strong>co</strong>lour standards, so you won’t end<br />

up with poorly matched cabinetry <strong>co</strong>lours.<br />

Resene ArmourCat has excellent <strong>co</strong>verage<br />

and durability and is available in an extensive<br />

selection of Resene Total Colour System hues,<br />

Resene Metallic fi nishes and gloss and satin<br />

clears. Homeowners will be very disappointed<br />

if their wall <strong>co</strong>lour and cabinetry <strong>co</strong>lours do not<br />

match up as expected.<br />

Inject some <strong>co</strong>lour into the kitchen with a<br />

painted glass splashback. Resene Imperite<br />

IF 503 is ideal for this job and with the<br />

introduction of red and magenta tones, you can<br />

tint an extensive range of Resene <strong>co</strong>lours into<br />

this product or enjoy a metallic effects fi nish<br />

if preferred.<br />

But before you start the painting, make sure<br />

you have <strong>co</strong>mpleted the surface preparation<br />

well. This includes treating moss and mould,<br />

grease and applying an adhesion primer such as<br />

Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer<br />

over smooth areas to provide good adhesion<br />

for subsequent top<strong>co</strong>ats. Grease should be<br />

cleaned with Sugar soap or a cleaner such as Jif<br />

and ni<strong>co</strong>tine stains can be treated with Resene<br />

Emulsifi able Solvent Cleaner before applying<br />

the paint system.<br />

Bathrooms and kitchens are prone to high<br />

levels of moisture, which can result in mould<br />

growth. Moss and mould must be killed prior<br />

to applying a paint fi nish, otherwise they will<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntinue to grow through the paint fi nish and<br />

ruin the fresh paintwork. Kill moss and mould<br />

with Resene Moss & Mould Killer, <strong>co</strong>rrectly<br />

diluted with water.<br />

For a fi nishing touch in a kitchen, <strong>co</strong>nsider<br />

adding a wall in Resene Blackboard Paint,<br />

Resene Magnetic Magic or Resene Writeon<br />

Wall Paint and make the use of the wall<br />

space for notes, reminders or hanging photos.<br />

Resene Magnetic Magic is a base<strong>co</strong>at full of<br />

metallic oxides that can be over<strong>co</strong>ated with<br />

your choice of Resene waterborne top<strong>co</strong>ats.<br />

Once dry and cured you can use rare earth<br />

magnets to hold things onto the wall without<br />

damaging the paint fi nish. Resene Write-on<br />

Wall Paint is a clear fi nish designed to impart<br />

a whiteboard style fi nish on walls. Simply <strong>co</strong>at<br />

over any existing Resene wall <strong>co</strong>lour, then once<br />

dry and cured you can write all over it using<br />

whiteboard markers or liquid chalk. Rub out<br />

the writing with a soft lint free cloth and then<br />

start writing all over again. Because the fi nish<br />

is clear the paint <strong>co</strong>lour underneath will show<br />

through, so your ‘whiteboard’ style fi nish will<br />

fi t in with the rest of your room dé<strong>co</strong>r. A Resene<br />

Write-On Wall Paint fi nished wall is a very<br />

handy option for writing reminders and to do<br />

lists in a kitchen.<br />

If you’re looking for <strong>co</strong>lour inspiration,<br />

the Resene The Range 2011/12 has plenty<br />

of exciting <strong>co</strong>lours to try and The Range<br />

Whites & Neutrals provides some classic<br />

Surfactant<br />

leaching<br />

Waterborne interior products in<br />

particular are vulnerable to surfactant<br />

leaching, where some areas of the<br />

paint surface appear to be <strong>co</strong>vered<br />

in white streaks, giving a watermark<br />

effect. Surfactant leaching only affects<br />

the appearance of the paint fi nish, not<br />

its durability. It cannot be accurately<br />

predicted or prevented but tends to<br />

occur when moisture settles on a<br />

fi lm, such as in a steamy room like a<br />

bathroom when there is moisture in the<br />

air on a <strong>co</strong>ld and wet day or in humid<br />

<strong>co</strong>nditions. Colours with higher levels<br />

of tinter are most prone to surfactant<br />

leaching.<br />

Surfactant leaching is caused by water<br />

sitting on freshly applied waterborne<br />

paints. Water softens the fresh paint and<br />

draws out water soluble surfactants. As<br />

water dries off these are deposited on<br />

the surface. These deposits are easily<br />

removed early on by simply cleaning<br />

the surface following the interior<br />

paintwork instructions. The problem<br />

may occur once or twice again before<br />

all leachable material is <strong>co</strong>mpletely<br />

removed. If left, the deposits can etch<br />

the surface and leave a permanent<br />

mark. This should diminish over a<br />

few months and is only of <strong>co</strong>smetic<br />

<strong>co</strong>ncern.<br />

Surfactant leaching is usually associated<br />

with marginal painting <strong>co</strong>nditions. To<br />

prevent surfactant leaching, it is best to<br />

avoid application in the late afternoon<br />

if <strong>co</strong>ol, damp <strong>co</strong>nditions are expected<br />

in the evening or overnight. Ensure<br />

adequate ventilation is maintained<br />

during the drying period. If surfactant<br />

leaching does occur, clean the surface<br />

as soon as possible to avoid permanent<br />

marking.<br />

High Performance Coatings<br />

for Kitchens and Bathrooms<br />

Mirotone has one of the most <strong>co</strong>mprehensive<br />

ranges of <strong>co</strong>atings available designed to protect<br />

and beautify interior wood and wood related<br />

substrates. One measure of a “robust” <strong>co</strong>ating<br />

system, is how easy it is to achieve a good<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmercial fi nish under a diverse range of<br />

application <strong>co</strong>nditions. Another measure is how<br />

well the <strong>co</strong>ating will perform after application<br />

when the <strong>co</strong>ated article is in service.<br />

Does it have the following attributes:-<br />

• Adhesion<br />

• Flexibility<br />

• Impact resistance<br />

• Non-Yellowing<br />

• Chemical resistance to <strong>co</strong>mmon household<br />

reagents including water, wet heat resistance,<br />

acetone (nail polish remover), methylated<br />

spirits (al<strong>co</strong>hol), beetroot juice, <strong>co</strong>ffee, and<br />

household bleach<br />

Which Coating System is the Best?<br />

No <strong>co</strong>ating in any particular product category<br />

is better or worse, in an absolute sense, than a<br />

<strong>co</strong>ating in a different product category. The<br />

question of which <strong>co</strong>ating is “the best” is entirely<br />

dependent upon the application equipment<br />

and environment, skill and experience of the<br />

<strong>co</strong>ating applicators, and the substrate/article<br />

to be <strong>co</strong>ated<br />

MIROBILD Acid Catalysed (AC) Coatings<br />

are two <strong>co</strong>mponent <strong>co</strong>atings with high build,<br />

and usually with extended pot life greater<br />

than 24 hours. They are typically fast drying,<br />

but this is dependent upon fi lm build. A full<br />

range of gloss levels are available from matt<br />

to full gloss, and they offer good chemical and<br />

water resistance. Their typical applications<br />

are <strong>co</strong>mmercial furniture & fi ttings, bathroom<br />

vanities, kitchen cabinetry<br />

MIROTHANE Polyurethane (PU) Coatings<br />

are two-<strong>co</strong>mponent <strong>co</strong>atings with high build;<br />

typically with much shorter pot life than for<br />

AC’s. They are low odour in application, and<br />

in service, and are formaldehyde free. They<br />

offer excellent fl exibility and therefore superior<br />

scratch and impact resistance. Their excellent<br />

chemical and water resistance, means they are<br />

re<strong>co</strong>mmended for very heavy wear or severe<br />

environments such as bar tops, bathroom<br />

vanities, and <strong>co</strong>mmercial table tops.<br />

Some kitchen and bathroom designs demand<br />

the wood grain effect with clear <strong>co</strong>atings to<br />

enhance this. Both water based and solvent<br />

based stains in a wide range of <strong>co</strong>lours are<br />

available to provide this before the fi nal clear<br />

<strong>co</strong>ating fi nishes the job. A recent innovation<br />

from Mirotone is the Sunshield Polyurethane<br />

which is a clear top<strong>co</strong>at with UV inhibitors in<br />

the formulation. The benefi ts to designers are<br />

that it offers a non-yellowing <strong>co</strong>ating suitable<br />

for re<strong>co</strong>nstituted wood veneers and light<br />

<strong>co</strong>loured timbers, in kitchens where the natural<br />

wood look is desired.<br />

To care for your <strong>co</strong>ated kitchens or bathroom<br />

surfaces, use only a soft cloth. If cleaning<br />

is required again, a soft cloth plus mild<br />

detergent.<br />

DO NOT do the following:-<br />

• use abrasive clears or “spray and wipe”<br />

solutions<br />

• use furniture polishes <strong>co</strong>ntaining sili<strong>co</strong>nes<br />

• leave liquid spillages to pond on horizontal<br />

surfaces or to drip down vertical faces<br />

• place hot dishes, pots, pans, cups or mugs<br />

directly onto <strong>co</strong>ated surfaces<br />

• allow fingernail polish and removers,<br />

personal deodorants, perfumes, aftershave<br />

lotions or soaps to <strong>co</strong>me into <strong>co</strong>ntact with<br />

<strong>co</strong>ated surfaces<br />

• drop or throw sharp or heavy objects on or<br />

against the <strong>co</strong>ated fi nish<br />

• use excessive force to remove stubborn dirt<br />

or grease especially on <strong>co</strong>ated fi nishes with<br />

semi-gloss, satin or matt fi nishes

UltraProof<br />

is Ultra Good<br />

Taubmans get it right<br />

for the trade and the <strong>co</strong>nsumer<br />

The developmemt of acrylic enamel technology in recent<br />

years has made great steps forward in response to market<br />

demand for safer alternatives to solvent based paints<br />

particularly for use in areas such as the kitchen and bathroom<br />

where the age old problems of moisture and grease are<br />

factors. The UltraProof range from Taubmans, now owned by<br />

Wattyl, is a very good example. Described as their advanced<br />

third generation of acrylic enamel technology, this range has<br />

characteristics that make it ideal for both the trade user and<br />

the <strong>co</strong>nsumer.<br />

The beauty of the UltraProof product is that it can indeed be<br />

used in most situations where oil based fi nishes have been<br />

traditionally used. The product is based on an advanced<br />

acrylic formulation with enamel like properties. It <strong>co</strong>ntains<br />

crosslinking resins to give an enamel like fi nish which can be<br />

applied over existing suitably prepared enamels or acrylics.<br />

More signifi cantly though is that it is water based, has a low<br />

odour and is non toxic. With anti blocking properties, it is<br />

suitable for use on opening doors and window frames and is<br />

re<strong>co</strong>mmended for interior and exterior trim, timber joinery as<br />

well as broadwalls in wet areas such as bathrooms, laundries<br />

and kitchens.<br />

From the trade perspective the UltraProof range is ideal: it can<br />

be applied by brush or roller, will cure on surfaces as <strong>co</strong>ld as 5<br />

degrees celcius, it is touch dry in forty minutes and re<strong>co</strong>atable<br />

in four hours. The big thing for the end user in the kitchen<br />

or bathroom in particular is that the fi nish is hardwearing,<br />

cleans easily and <strong>co</strong>lours are non yellowing.<br />

The product is available in a range of <strong>co</strong>lours and sheen levels<br />

including gloss, semi gloss and satin as well as eggshell.<br />

UIltraProof Eggshell is of special note because the sheen<br />

level is <strong>co</strong>nsistent regardless of viewing angle, enabling<br />

you to deliver a sophisticated aesthetic without the need to<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpensate for minor defects in the underlying surface which<br />

may result in a lower quality fi nish on walls. The UltraProof<br />

range of fi nishes is well regarded and has a loyal following<br />

of <strong>co</strong>nsumers and those in the trade.<br />

Osmo - a natural finish for all occasions<br />

Osmo Holz & Color GmbH & Co in Warendorf, Germany are world renowned specialists in producing wood fi nishes tailored to<br />

the specifi c properties of wood. In early April, local distributor Richard Lawton of Natural Oils Ltd hosted a seminar at the Home<br />

Ideas Centre in downtown Auckland. Osmo senior technician Paul Lockwood-Lee outlined the Osmo range, including a number of<br />

new products, and answered questions from attendees that included architects, fl oor sanders, cabinetmakers and joiners. JOINERS<br />

Magazine tagged along to see what was on offer.<br />

There are some twenty fi ve <strong>co</strong>lour<br />

shades of transparent and opaque<br />

<strong>finishes</strong> in the Osmo range for<br />

interior use and more than fi fty<br />

for external applications. Some<br />

<strong>co</strong>lours are not held in New<br />

Zealand but can be easily ordered<br />

from Germany.<br />

Paul points out that there are four<br />

key attributes with the product:<br />

high <strong>co</strong>verage saving time and<br />

money while providing a micro<br />

porous finish that allows the<br />

wood to “breathe”; they are safe<br />

for humans, animals and plants<br />

with no biocides or preservatives<br />

and based on purifi ed and refi ned<br />

raw plant materials; the wood<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 40<br />

fi nishes are tailored to the specifi c<br />

properties of various wood<br />

types; and the product has been<br />

independently tested meeting the<br />

required standards <strong>co</strong>mpliance.<br />

Focusing on interior applications,<br />

there are two distinct types of<br />

finishing – clear or <strong>co</strong>loured.<br />

Because they are a safe product<br />

they can be used on all manner<br />

of product from fl oors, cabinetry,<br />

doors and architraves to joinery.<br />

The interesting part is the horses<br />

for <strong>co</strong>urses approach Osmo have<br />

taken. A <strong>co</strong>uple of examples<br />

bear this out. The fl agship of the<br />

Osmo range is Polyx Oil – a clear<br />

hard fi nish in either matt or satin-<br />

0800 477 869 www.ingersollrand.<strong>co</strong>.<strong>nz</strong><br />

matt. It is dubbed “The natural<br />

alternative to polyurethane”. Their<br />

Wood Wax Finish Transparent or<br />

Opaque (now known as Creativ)<br />

is particularly re<strong>co</strong>mmended for<br />

furniture and children’s toys. It<br />

is based on natural oil and waxes<br />

and is resistant to wine, <strong>co</strong>la<br />

and <strong>co</strong>ffee stains. Their Wood<br />

Protector product is re<strong>co</strong>mmended<br />

for woods susceptible to blue stain<br />

in rooms prone to dampness such<br />

as the kitchen or bathroom as well<br />

as children’s outdoor toys which<br />

must be treated with a fi nish that<br />

is safe for humans, animals and<br />

plants. It does not <strong>co</strong>ntain any<br />

biocides either. Another product<br />

of interest is their TopOil which<br />

<br />

is a special oil and wax mixture<br />

used as a clear treatment for<br />

furniture and wooden kitchen<br />

work tops. With a high solid<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntent and porosity as well as<br />

water repellant and non abrasive<br />

characteristics it is ideal for these<br />

types of surfaces.<br />

This specialized approach also<br />

applies to the clear and <strong>co</strong>loured<br />

types of fi nish. Where a <strong>co</strong>loured<br />

finish for a floor is required<br />

one <strong>co</strong>at of Wood Wax Finish<br />

Transparent or Opaque (Creativ)<br />

followed by one or two <strong>co</strong>ats<br />

of clear Polyx Oil be it satin or<br />

matt is the order of the day. This<br />

Polyx (the original Hardwax Oil)


product is a hardwearing, non<br />

abrasive and extremely durable<br />

special fi nish for wooden fl ooring<br />

particularly good for <strong>co</strong>rk and<br />

OSB boards as well as <strong>co</strong>ncrete,<br />

terra<strong>co</strong>tta and unglazed tiles. The<br />

water resistance of fl oors treated<br />

with this product exceeds that<br />

of <strong>co</strong>nventional parquet seals<br />

and varnishes. For a clear fi nish,<br />

two <strong>co</strong>ats of Polyx Oil should be<br />

applied. For even faster drying<br />

properties there is Polyx Oil Rapid<br />

that dries in only two hours.<br />

On the other hand, for oily or<br />

resinous timbers such as Matai,<br />

Totara, Merbau, Rosewood<br />

or Wenge to name a few,<br />

Osmo have developed the 2K<br />

product <strong>co</strong>mmonly called “2<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponent” <strong>co</strong>mments Paul.<br />

This is a professional fi nish for<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmercial use in areas such as<br />

cafes, restaurants and other high<br />

traffi c environments. It is new to<br />

New Zealand and Australia.<br />

On floors, 2K is applied by<br />

machine. Two <strong>co</strong>ats about an<br />

hour apart and each buffed in with<br />

a green pad are the norm. A fi nal<br />

buffi ng with a white pad is then<br />

required. The fi nish is dry in four<br />

hours at which time furniture can<br />

be put back.<br />

The list of products from Osmo is<br />

too exhaustive to <strong>co</strong>ver but there<br />

is something for nearly every<br />

application.<br />

Osmo have a range of accessories<br />

from resin, paint, stain and<br />

mould removers, wood revivers,<br />

buffers, brushes, fl oor roller sets,<br />

many of which are new to New<br />

Zealand. The range of product<br />

for exterior applications is just as<br />

impressive.<br />

Biesse – innovation for growth<br />

In the international environment of Ligna 2011,<br />

the biennial trade fair that makes Hannover the<br />

world capital of woodworking technologies<br />

for fi ve days, Biesse’s management led by<br />

the Chairman, Roberto Selci, presented to<br />

an audience of clients and sector specialist<br />

from over 90 <strong>co</strong>untries, the new technologies<br />

developed to guarantee increasingly targeted<br />

responses to client requirements, high standards<br />

of quality, fi nish and design; the fi rst results<br />

achieved and the new three-year plan.<br />

A real novelty this year was the presence of<br />

Biesse in Pavilion 24, at Ligna, dedicated to<br />

the “lightweight.network” as a global leader<br />

focused on technological innovation and new<br />

materials. This area involved <strong>co</strong>mpanies<br />

which, to different degrees, <strong>co</strong>ntribute to<br />

the processing of light panels and which<br />

are distinguished by the excellence of the<br />

technology they apply to this type of material.<br />

The objective of this pavilion was to create<br />

a focal point within the fair representing a<br />

genuine skills centre and an opportunity for<br />

producers and suppliers. Live demonstrations<br />

were held during the exhibition to show<br />

participants how to produce a fi nished product<br />

with these avant-garde technologies.<br />

The innovations being presented at the Fair<br />

included the <strong>co</strong>mplete range of 5 axes machine<br />

centres, dedicated to the processing of both<br />

panels and solid wood with an offer <strong>co</strong>mbination<br />

capable of satisfying large industrial <strong>co</strong>mpanies<br />

as well as small and medicum sized <strong>co</strong>mpanies.<br />

The solutions for window and door fi ttings<br />

met with a great public reception over the<br />

exhibition, including not only the innovative<br />

technologies of the Multicentri Uniwin and<br />

the Rover WMS machine centres but also the<br />

range of Sanders and Calibrators from Viet, an<br />

historic brand that recently became part of the<br />

Biesse Group, and also the new Hybrid Doors<br />

for packaging doors and windows.<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 46<br />

Biesse also presented signifi cant innovations<br />

in drilling machines which has broadened its<br />

range with the new Skipper V31 and EKO 902,<br />

vertical drilling machines recently introduced<br />

under the Bre.Ma brand for small and mediumsized<br />

businesses.<br />

Another Biesse innovation highlighted was the<br />

NEW E<strong>co</strong>Laser, the latest generation technology<br />

integrated with the Stream edgebander; <strong>edging</strong><br />

using a diode laser that guarantees excellent<br />

aesthetic results! This application eliminates<br />

the adhesive line between the edge and the<br />

panel, whilst retaining optimum adhesive<br />

results. It operates by using laser rays to fuse<br />

the internal layer of <strong>co</strong>extruded edge and<br />

the panel surface. The E<strong>co</strong>Laser solution is<br />

keeping in line with Biesse Group philosophy,<br />

offering a laser machine with a ratio of energy<br />

<strong>co</strong>nsumption to emitted power that is lower<br />

than those of other systems. In fact, with<br />

approximately 6kW of installed power. The<br />

NEW E<strong>co</strong>Laser technology allows for the<br />

<strong>edging</strong> of varying materials, thickenss and<br />

<strong>co</strong>lour, all applied with speed, fl exibility and<br />

effectiveness! For more information regarding<br />

Biesse’s latest innovation goto our Facebook<br />

page www.Facebook/Biesse Group Australia<br />

for an exclusive interview with Pierlugi Tacchi<br />

of Biesse S.p.a outlining key advantageous.<br />

The Ligna Trade fair took place following<br />

a very important year for Biesse, a year in<br />

which the <strong>co</strong>mpany has succeeded in obtaining<br />

good results at the level of both revenues<br />

and margins, and the figures <strong>co</strong>nfirm it.<br />

Consolidated revenues in 2010 rose by 22%<br />

with a return to positive results at both the<br />

EBITDA and EBIT level. The results for the<br />

fi rst four months of 2011 are also reassuring<br />

both because of the signifi cant increase in<br />

revenues and for the <strong>co</strong>nsistent growth in orders<br />

received, which at the end of April was 20%<br />

higher than that for the same period of 2010.<br />

“Investments in technology,<br />

attentiveness to client needs<br />

and energy savings is now the<br />

focus of the Biesse Group’s<br />

development strategies over<br />

the <strong>co</strong>ming years”, says<br />

Chairman, Roberto Selci<br />

Biesse’s leadership in the development of new technologies has been <strong>co</strong>nfi rmed at the Ligna trade fair with the presentation of<br />

avant-garde technological solutions.<br />

“We are delighted to return to Ligna following<br />

an important year like 2010. A year that saw<br />

Biesse return en<strong>co</strong>uraging levels of production<br />

and results”, stated Roberto Selci, Chariman of<br />

the Company. “However, now these positive<br />

results must be maintained through a 360<br />

degree attention to client needs and therefore<br />

to the product portfolio.”<br />

“This year we will launch on the market<br />

machines designed to give clients the possibility<br />

of working in the most effi cient way, through<br />

a <strong>co</strong>mplete range of solutions that respond to<br />

every single requirement. Biesse’s decision to<br />

reinforce its own research and development<br />

activities have had a particularly signifi cant<br />

impact on this trend, which for the Wood<br />

division in particular, will result in the<br />

introduction of new products and technologies<br />

on more than 40% of its range, within the next<br />

12 months”, said Roberto.<br />

At the end of 2011 Biesse Group also approved<br />

an Industrial Plan for the three years 2011<br />

– 2013, with the key focus being to reduce<br />

industrial <strong>co</strong>sts, the reinforcement of its sales<br />

distribution network, technological innovation<br />

through investment aimed at renewing<br />

and expanding the product range and the<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmitment to improving after sales service.<br />

In addition to this the Group will also focus<br />

on the development of management leadership<br />

skills as a key factor in the sustainable long<br />

term growth of the <strong>co</strong>mpany’s value.<br />

Stefani from Gabbett Machinery p.50<br />

The <strong>co</strong>mbination of heat and glue and fast moving<br />

machinery along with a great requirement for accuracy and<br />

<strong>co</strong>nsistency means that edgebanding is a process which<br />

requires a high level of expertise from the operator along<br />

with a high level of sophistication in both the machinery<br />

designed to do it and the materials used.<br />

The following pages look at how technology in this area has<br />

developed over the last decade and the techniques used in<br />

modern edgbanding.<br />

Paintable tape from Hutch<strong>co</strong> p.55<br />

Trimmers on the Vector from Vector System p.57


the question<br />

Why is it that edgebanding is still one of the most frustrating operations in the factory today?<br />

Edgebanding has been around for a<br />

long time yet the same old issues are<br />

still in question today. The development<br />

of the edgebander has made huge<br />

steps in productivity, preciseness, and<br />

simplicity in setting up the units. But<br />

most customers mainly look for so-called<br />

benefi ts like the weight of the machine or<br />

faster speed. What can be overlooked is<br />

that a higher production can be reached<br />

with a smart selection of suitable units,<br />

like e<strong>co</strong>nomical glue application, or<br />

multifunctional units with motorization,<br />

or finishing units to clean the panel<br />

before it <strong>co</strong>mes out of the machine. This<br />

<strong>co</strong>mbined with an easy-to-use <strong>co</strong>ntroller<br />

leads to a highly profi table machine.<br />

Edgebanding machines have a lot of<br />

moving parts and a lot of infl uencing<br />

variables like glue qualities and its<br />

optimum working temperature, board<br />

quality, cut edge quality, tape quality,<br />

and importantly service support quality.<br />

Therefore, the edgebander must be very<br />

fl exible to adapt to all the requirements<br />

of the machined material. When looking<br />

to purchase an edgebander it is a good<br />

idea to go that little bit further in learning<br />

about how the machine can cater for the<br />

many variations and look for a machine<br />

to match the requirements rather than<br />

looking only at the price and weight of<br />

the machine.<br />

What makes Holzher a good choice?<br />

Holzher Direct NZ have the fl exibility<br />

to build a machine not only for the New<br />

Zealand market but also to suit your<br />

individual requirements. This fl exibility<br />

can focus the machine on your demands,<br />

like higher quality with less clean up,<br />

the ability to change the setup quickly<br />

from one function to another, like one<br />

edge fl at and one with radius in the same<br />

pass, different machining options with<br />

motorised adjustment for accuracy, plus<br />

many other features. Holzher have the<br />

highest level of technology available<br />

throughout all their model levels to give<br />

fl exibility and quality of fi nish on smaller<br />

production machines as well as the high<br />

production models.<br />

Cartridge or granules melted on demand and<br />

pushed by pressure through on to the board.<br />

THE HOLZHER GLUE SYSTEM<br />

One unit which brings most of the<br />

banding quality on the Holzher is the<br />

glue application system. This unit is a<br />

unique system which can be <strong>co</strong>ntrolled<br />

to a higher level of performance. Glue<br />

application can be <strong>co</strong>ntrolled with a start/<br />

stop function which eliminates excess<br />

glue at the front and rear of the board<br />

which can mean less clean up.<br />

The glue granules or cartridge are only<br />

melted as required which means they are<br />

only heated up once and are not subject<br />

to burning. Furthermore energy <strong>co</strong>sts will<br />

be saved through the melting-on-demand<br />

system. With the hot glue being pushed<br />

by pressure through a tube out on to the<br />

board, many benefi ts are available. No<br />

poisonous fumes, accurate <strong>co</strong>ntrol of<br />

temperature, accurate <strong>co</strong>ntrol of glue<br />

quantity, and very low maintenance with<br />

very few moving parts.<br />

Once the glue application is <strong>co</strong>mplete and<br />

the edge has a quality bond then the level<br />

to which you want to machine and fi nish<br />

your <strong>edging</strong> needs to be decided. With<br />

Holzher the heavy duty units with easy<br />

adjustment provide a lot of fl exibility.<br />

From the accurate motorised adjustment<br />

of units to fine finishing tools which<br />

give a higher quality result reducing the<br />

expense of manual clean up. The choice<br />

of machine for your level of production<br />

with the choice of functions to give you<br />

the most benefi ts is the fl exibility we<br />

offer at Holzher Direct NZ.<br />

Michael Bressan<br />

“A new edgebanding machine<br />

is a significant investment and<br />

it was important that whatever<br />

we chose would provide value<br />

for money and improve the<br />

quality and effi ciency of the door<br />

manufacturing process,” says<br />

Michael.<br />

Since installing the machine in<br />

December 2008, Arrow Wood<br />

hasn’t looked back. Ease of use, a<br />

wide range of programs to choose<br />

from, instant changeover between<br />

edge types and a higher level of<br />

automation and improved product<br />

fl ow are just some of the benefi ts<br />

that have been noted to date.<br />

“One of the most noticeable<br />

improvements is the decrease<br />

in product handling required,”<br />

says Michael. “Previously, after<br />

the doors had been through the<br />

machine we would have to use<br />

scrapers and thinners to clean<br />

glue residue off doors. Now, with<br />

the Stefani’s built in glue scraping<br />

and cleaning abilities, there is very<br />

little handling required.”<br />

“It was important that the<br />

machinery be able to withstand<br />

a high workload as it is used<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntinuously through each shift.<br />

The Stefani has proven to be<br />

up to the task and the ease of<br />

changing between profi les means<br />

that there is minimal downtime.<br />

As a result of the more effi cient<br />

manufacturing process, Arrow<br />

Wood has seen a significant<br />

increase in productivity and<br />

quality, which is now effectively<br />

supporting our service capabilities<br />

to Western Australia, Tasmania,<br />

Victoria and Queensland.”<br />

Michael speaks highly of Gabbett’s<br />

service both during and after the<br />

installation phase. “Installing<br />

new machinery can sometimes<br />

see teething issues arise, but<br />

Gabbett really showed their true<br />

<strong>co</strong>lours with the level of service<br />

provided. Any technical problems<br />

we have en<strong>co</strong>untered have been<br />

addressed straight away, which<br />

was particularly useful in the<br />

initial stages as our operators<br />

adapted to the new process. On<br />

the odd occasion that we have<br />

needed technical support we have<br />

often had a technician on site the<br />

same day, sometimes even within<br />

a few hours.”<br />

Obviously being impressed with<br />

the machine and Gabbett’s level<br />

of service and support, Michael<br />

says he would re<strong>co</strong>mmend them<br />

to other <strong>co</strong>mpanies. Edgebanding<br />

can be a diffi cult process but with<br />

the <strong>co</strong>rrect machine and advice<br />

it can be an area where great<br />

improvement in productivity can<br />

be made.<br />

Mark Paterson and Rod Lamport with their Casadei V320.<br />

Casadei V320<br />

fast set up little clean up<br />

When asked what work they do, Joinery Visions Owner /Director Rod<br />

Lamport starts by listing recent projects. “Shop fi tting, vanities, kitchens,<br />

<strong>co</strong>ffee tables, exterior joinery… Actually we’ll make anything except a<br />

spiral staircase!” he says. “We’re versatile. Our focus is on top quality<br />

custom joinery in sold timber and melamine products.”<br />

About a year ago year Rod purchased a Casadei V320 edgebander from<br />

Jacks, along with a Holytek extractor. “We were able to get a good job off<br />

our old machine, but it just took too long. Set-up took awhile, and then<br />

the <strong>edging</strong> required a lot of clean up after being applied” he explains.<br />

“We’re at least twice as fast now – and with a good fi nish” Rod says.<br />

“The Casadei is easy to use, quick to set-up and maintain, and works<br />

well. I’d re<strong>co</strong>mmend it to any small to medium sized joinery.”<br />

Capable of processing tape from 0.4mm to 2mm, Casadeis are in use in<br />

many small joinery shops (and more than a few larger ones) around New<br />

Zealand. Features include a fast start-up, a pre-heating plate to warm<br />

the panel to avoid issues with <strong>co</strong>ld and damp, and a two speed gearbox.<br />

Copy rollers rather than static tracing shoes have helped the V320 build<br />

a reputation for <strong>co</strong>nsistent, top quality results.<br />

Common feeding issues with pre-glued machines – for example the tape<br />

feed starting too late – are avoided with good technology. Angled feed<br />

rollers hold the panel into the fence, and the tape feed roller is located<br />

in the bed of the machine rather than in the fence – guaranteeing <strong>co</strong>ntact<br />

with the panel, rather than relying on the panel being pushed hard into<br />

the fence.<br />

Christchurch-based, Joinery Visions has been operating for just under<br />

three years, and already has a strong base of customers who refer work:<br />

“We don’t advertise, but get our work through word-of-mouth” Rod<br />

explains. Before starting Joinery Visions, Rod had 22 years experience<br />

as a joiner, and working with him now is Mark Paterson, Canterbury<br />

Joinery Apprentice of the Year in 2008 and 2009. Together their work<br />

is predominantly in the middle-to upper end of the market, with a focus<br />

on quality that is evident in the tidy workshop and impressive, handmade<br />

workbenches they each use. The quality they’re getting from<br />

KDT edgebanders<br />

To many people the name KDT means nothing, but world wide<br />

KDT is a serious manufacturer of edgebanders and be<strong>co</strong>ming<br />

a threat to European brands. Many importers are lining up at<br />

the factory wanting to buy the KDT range of machines either<br />

under there own brand or under the importers own label.<br />

As a manufacturer of small single sided machine to double<br />

sided machine KDT has a model to suit. All KDT machines<br />

use the same parts for both big and small machines thus you<br />

can be sure of quality. The machines are simple to use and easy<br />

to operate with feed speeds of 12 16 and 20 mpm. Models are<br />

available with premilling, <strong>co</strong>rner rounding, surface scraping,<br />

double sided and quick set. Customer who <strong>co</strong>me in for a demo<br />

generally buy the machine as they can see the value and the<br />

performance.<br />

To go with the KDT machine we have a range of return<br />

<strong>co</strong>nveyor systems. These are simple inexpensive machine to<br />

How do I avoid CNC tool breakage?<br />

Did you know that over 80% of CNC tool breakages are caused<br />

by in<strong>co</strong>rrect or faulty <strong>co</strong>lleting?<br />

You see, a router tool spinning at 18,000rpm is<br />

in trouble if it’s as little as 5 microns off centre.<br />

That’s the thickness of a grain of talcum powder<br />

and about how thick a deposit of resin or dust is<br />

... when it’s squashed inside your <strong>co</strong>llet.<br />

Collets are manufactured to exact tolerances<br />

and when they are 5 microns out of round both<br />

the <strong>co</strong>llet and the tool are strained because<br />

the distorted <strong>co</strong>llet cannot grip the tool shank<br />

perfectly.<br />

The result –<br />

• Poor <strong>co</strong>mponent edge fi nish.<br />

• Less than optimum tool life.<br />

• Metal fatigue and eventual breakage of<br />

the tool<br />

• Increased noise ...<br />

The extra noise is a clue as to what is happening<br />

to the machine. Tool run out causes high<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 54<br />

frequency vibrations in the high speed motor<br />

bearings. This drastically reduces their service<br />

life; with repairs <strong>co</strong>sting you thousands of<br />

dollars and downtime.<br />

Colleting and Collet life Span<br />

Collets have a life span of 3 months if used 8<br />

hours a day. Replacing the <strong>co</strong>llets will ensure<br />

that your operation runs <strong>co</strong>nsistently and<br />

prevents tool breakage. When inserting a tool<br />

into the <strong>co</strong>llet, make sure the fl ute fade out does<br />

not enter the <strong>co</strong>llet. If the <strong>co</strong>llet is gripping on<br />

the fadeout, it will cause runout and potentially<br />

tool breakage. To ensure proper clamping the<br />

tool shank should fi ll, at a minimum 80% of<br />

the depth of the <strong>co</strong>llet.<br />

Collet Maintenance<br />

Cleaning is an essential part of <strong>co</strong>llet<br />

maintenance. As material is cut, extremely<br />

fi ne dirt and resin migrates up the tool shaft<br />

Use the ‘Ultra Precision’ tooling systems for –<br />

1. Better Part Finish<br />

2. Increased Tool Life<br />

3. Quieter, Easier Cutting<br />

With <strong>co</strong>llet chucks, shrink chucks, mechanical<br />

grip chucks + the ‘Ultra Precision’ <strong>co</strong>llets with<br />

50% more gripping power!<br />

Just call 0800 488 647 to get the<br />

optimum for your operation<br />

into the <strong>co</strong>llet, causing the <strong>co</strong>llet, <strong>co</strong>llet nut,<br />

toolholder and spindle interface to be<strong>co</strong>me<br />

dirty. This causes your tool to cut in an elliptical<br />

fashion which will decrease tool life and cause<br />

in<strong>co</strong>nsistency in your operation.<br />

Keeping <strong>co</strong>llets and toolholders is as essential<br />

as it is easy. Tungsten and Tool have their TMK<br />

(Tooling Maintenance Kit) which includes<br />

everything you need to perfectly clean and<br />

lubricate cutters, <strong>co</strong>llets and chucks – all in a<br />

handy carry case.<br />

For ‘Ultra Accurate’ gripping use the ‘Ultra<br />

Precision’ Toolholders and <strong>co</strong>llets from<br />

Tungsten & Tool. Just call 0800 488 647.<br />

<strong>edging</strong> with EXwood<br />

In <strong>co</strong>ntrast to other paintable edgebanding materials (ABS, PVC)<br />

this alternative has the advantage that the panel itself exhibits<br />

identical dimensional changes as the EXwood – for example in<br />

changing climatic <strong>co</strong>nditions.<br />

The front of the EXwood edge is fl ashed and can be painted over<br />

with all <strong>co</strong>mmercially available wood <strong>finishes</strong> and paints. In<br />

fact a pre sand is not re<strong>co</strong>mmended! The back side has a special<br />

adhesive primer layer to ensure it bonds with EVA, PU, or polyofi ne<br />

adhesives.<br />

EXwood is a <strong>co</strong>mposed material based on wood fibres and<br />

polypropylene and is available in 2mm thickness up to 65mm<br />

wide.<br />

The story of furniture manufacturer Furnware Ltd is a good one. Their success has been despite the prevailing e<strong>co</strong>nomic <strong>co</strong>nditions<br />

of the last few years and at a time when local furniture manufacturers have faced increased <strong>co</strong>mpetition from cheap imports. A key<br />

factor in this success has been the proactive approach taken by Furnware management, using design and marketing as their weapons<br />

of choice. JOINERS Magazine spoke with Marketing Manager Jeremy Ross to fi nd out why their strategy has been so successful.<br />

Sales and marketing are important for any<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpany selling a product or service. What<br />

underlies Furnware’s approach?<br />

“The key has been using design to create a<br />

unique range of products which better suit<br />

the needs of our clientele and differentiates us<br />

from our <strong>co</strong>mpetitors. We spend a lot of time<br />

understanding the needs of our customers and<br />

tailoring the resultant relationship ac<strong>co</strong>rding to<br />

their specifi c requirements. Marketing for us<br />

is a careful integration of product packaging<br />

and service, selling systems and support<br />

into a package that meets the needs of those<br />

customers.” explains Mr Ross.<br />

Some 90% of your business is in the education<br />

sector which is a demanding, niche market.<br />

How have you been able to keep your product<br />

range fresh and unique?<br />

“Design and marketing are obviously to the<br />

fore,” <strong>co</strong>mments Mr Ross “but you also have<br />

to have the capability in the factory that allows<br />

the sales and marketing team that fl exibility to<br />

be different. It may sound obvious but one of<br />

the important things in making furniture for the<br />

school market is that there are no sharp edges to<br />

the furniture. This is a health and safety issue.<br />

Curved edges have be<strong>co</strong>me essential.<br />

All our <strong>co</strong>ntour banding was performed<br />

by hand which created real challenges with<br />

quality, repeatability and productivity. As a<br />

result the number of <strong>co</strong>ntoured <strong>co</strong>mponents<br />

we made were kept to a minimum. This was<br />

what attracted us to the Vector Revolution<br />

180 <strong>co</strong>ntour edgebander from Vector Systems<br />

when it came out in 2007. We trialled it, saw<br />

the potential and it has now be<strong>co</strong>me a central<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponent in our manufacturing process.<br />

For curved edges we are now able to perform<br />

all the processes at once: band glueing and<br />

application, trimming and surface scraping. We<br />

have been able to redevelop our product range<br />

to include a much higher percentage of curved<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponents. With the quality and speed of the<br />

machine it has been possible for our design<br />

team to tap into a far larger design gallery in<br />

the last few years. In fact the quality of all the<br />

machinery we have employed has been a big<br />

reason for our success.”<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 56<br />

Health and safety has be<strong>co</strong>me an increasingly<br />

significant aspect of industry in general.<br />

The education sector more so than most one<br />

would suspect. How has Furnware addressed<br />

this issue?<br />

“Health and safety standards are important. We<br />

are <strong>co</strong>nstantly talking to our clientele about this<br />

issue. Be<strong>co</strong>ming part of the Environmental<br />

Choice Programme is a response to this. For<br />

our factory employees it was about ensuring<br />

a safe and pleasant working environment, for<br />

our clientele it meant they had the reassurance<br />

that the product they bought met re<strong>co</strong>gnized<br />

health and safety standards. We made a number<br />

of changes to our production process to meet<br />

these standards. For example, the glues we use.<br />

Another important development has been the<br />

introduction of our Body Furn range of school<br />

furniture which is based on sound ergonomic<br />

design making it <strong>co</strong>mfortable for students and<br />

allowing them to <strong>co</strong>ncentrate better.”<br />

Furnware has been referred to as a <strong>co</strong>mpany<br />

model others should follow. Why do you think<br />

that is so?<br />

“Among other things already mentioned,<br />

I think it <strong>co</strong>mes down to a willingness to<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntinually develop and improve our processes<br />

to the betterment of both the <strong>co</strong>mpany and it’s<br />

staff as well as its customers.<br />

Our close association with Vector Systems<br />

is a good example. By working closely with<br />

Vector we have <strong>co</strong>ntinued to get optimum<br />

performance from the Vector machine both in<br />

terms of withstanding the demanding workload<br />

(eighteen hour days are not un<strong>co</strong>mmon) and<br />

the desire to improve productivity. This results<br />

in a better product delivered quicker. The<br />

development of the surface scraper by Vector<br />

was in no small part due to our <strong>co</strong>llaboration<br />

with them. It now features on most Vector<br />

machines sold today.<br />

Our successful sales growth including the<br />

opening of our Australian operation in<br />

Melbourne in July 2009 and exports to China<br />

has meant the need for a se<strong>co</strong>nd Vector <strong>co</strong>ntour<br />

bander due to be installed in June this year.”<br />

or Head Offi ce Hastings<br />

Ph. 0800 655 155<br />

Furnware Ltd was established in<br />

1935 in Hastings and was a caravan<br />

manufacturer up until 1979 when<br />

they started to make polypropylene<br />

furniture for se<strong>co</strong>ndary schools and<br />

upholstered furniture for meeting<br />

rooms, bars and restaurants. The<br />

advent of the government initiated<br />

Tomorrows’ Schools programme in<br />

the early 90’s saw the <strong>co</strong>mpany dealing<br />

with schools direct as the Education<br />

Department was no longer directly<br />

involved. The <strong>co</strong>mpany was eventually<br />

bought by Hamish Whyte and his<br />

family in 1993. Furnware <strong>co</strong>ntinues<br />

to focus on the education sector selling<br />

locally and now internationally. Today<br />

with around eighty employees the<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpany has recently established an<br />

Auckland sales and marketing centre to<br />

<strong>co</strong>mplement its Hastings head offi ce.


Kiwi ingenuity finds international success<br />

Duncan Such, well known in the woodworking machinery industry, and incidentally also our very own Dr Buzz, established Vector<br />

Systems Ltd eight years ago to <strong>co</strong>nvert a problem solving idea into a practical reality. JOINERS Magazine caught up with Duncan<br />

to fi nd out more about the progress of this <strong>co</strong>mpany.<br />

The problem was how to press the working<br />

head of an edgebander against a shaped panel<br />

while travelling around it’s <strong>co</strong>ntour. A simple<br />

idea Duncan admits but no satisfactory solution<br />

had been forth<strong>co</strong>ming to deal with the problem<br />

of edgebanding <strong>co</strong>ntoured <strong>co</strong>mponents <strong>co</strong>st<br />

effectively. There existed a huge gap between<br />

using manual machines <strong>co</strong>sting up to $60,000<br />

and automatic CNC hybrid <strong>co</strong>ntour banders<br />

<strong>co</strong>sting over $500,000.<br />

How did you get started?<br />

The first step was to patent the invention<br />

followed by making the fi rst sale. Kevin Shuker<br />

of Ultra Offi ce stepped into the picture and there<br />

is no question that the willingness of visionaries<br />

like Kevin in ordering the fi rst machine along<br />

with the exceptional skills of Mike Powick of<br />

Powick Engineering in Taranaki who worked<br />

with Vector to develop the Revolution 180<br />

were instrumental in getting this project off<br />

the ground.” Duncan <strong>co</strong>mments.<br />

How did you realize the machines potential?<br />

Once we had developed the machine to a<br />

certain level it became possible to not only<br />

THE FUTURE OF CONTOUR EDGEBANDING<br />

BORN IN NEW ZEALAND<br />

TAKING ON THE WORLD<br />

sell to the New Zealand market but to also<br />

explore overseas markets. We now have<br />

dealers in Australia, UK, USA, Japan, Italy,<br />

Greece, Spain and Portugal. The product is<br />

only part of the equation, distribution is the<br />

other important element. The uniqueness of<br />

the machine has enabled us to link with some<br />

of the strongest machinery dealers around the<br />

world which would not have been possible if<br />

we were making straight line banders of which<br />

there are literally hundreds of manufacturers<br />

worldwide.<br />

Why has this technology been successful?<br />

Two things. Firstly, simplicity, that’s the Vector<br />

philosophy. A lot of effort is made to fi nd<br />

elegant solutions which reduce <strong>co</strong>mplexity,<br />

improve reliability, create ease of use and<br />

performance. We have found our dealers love<br />

the simplicity of the Vector <strong>co</strong>ncept even in<br />

sophisticated markets such as the USA and<br />

Europe. Se<strong>co</strong>ndly, simultaneous processing.<br />

This is where all processes are performed at<br />

the same time (band glueing and application,<br />

trimming and surface scraping). This is unique<br />

in a <strong>co</strong>ntour bander. To this we have now added<br />

Sidewinder trimmer unit on the VECTOR.<br />

our new Auto Endtrim vacuum pods which<br />

is really an outside the box solution. These<br />

vacuum pods have built in end trim units for<br />

fi nishing square <strong>co</strong>rnered panels automatically<br />

while the head is traversing to position.<br />

What’s next for Vector Systems?<br />

The progress we have made to date particularly<br />

in the acceptance of the Vector Revolution<br />

wherever we have taken it, offers the opportunity<br />

for it to be<strong>co</strong>me the predominant method for<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntour banding around the world.<br />

ascent - faster with a higher finish<br />

Surrounded by fields and birdsong, and<br />

looking out on bush <strong>co</strong>vered hills, it doesn’t<br />

feel as if Maymorn Joiners Limited is just a few<br />

kilometres from Upper Hutt. Owner Anthony<br />

Neustroski began his career as an apprentice at<br />

Odlins before setting up at Maymorn in 1991<br />

– enjoying the area so much he has recently<br />

moved in next door.<br />

Maymorn has four full time staff, offering<br />

solid wood and panel-based joinery across the<br />

Wellington region, including general joinery,<br />

kitchens, and work for schools – receptions<br />

and classrooms in particular. “There’s probably<br />

not a school in the region we haven’t been in”<br />

says Anthony.<br />

A little over a year ago Anthony decided<br />

the well-used Casadei edgebander they had<br />

purchased 2nd hand many years earlier needed<br />

replacement, and he asked Wellington-based<br />

Jacks rep Bernie Kilkelly to keep an eye out<br />

for a suitable se<strong>co</strong>nd-hand hot-melt machine.<br />

After years of pre-glue tape and fi nishing by<br />

hand, Anthony was ready to move up, but<br />

thought buying a new machine was outside<br />

of his budget.<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 58<br />

“I saw plenty of machines at AWISA when<br />

I went in 2008, but with a starting price of<br />

near 50k a new one wasn’t an option for us”<br />

Anthony says. Knowing that Jacks had a new,<br />

entry-level edgebander in development, Bernie<br />

<strong>co</strong>nvinced Anthony to wait a few months<br />

– advice Anthony is now pleased he took.<br />

“When I heard that I <strong>co</strong>uld buy a brand new<br />

hot-melt machine for under 30k, with warranty,<br />

support etc, why would I buy se<strong>co</strong>ndhand?”<br />

he says. “And knowing Jacks technician Ross<br />

McCulloch - who has been looking after us<br />

for years - was been heavily involved in the<br />

development of the machine, I was happy to<br />

wait.”<br />

The AscentPro MF508L was designed<br />

specifi cally by Jacks to provide an affordable<br />

entry-level hot-melt machine – a perfect nextstep<br />

from a Casadei. The benefi ts of hot-melt<br />

machines – scrapers, a cleaner glue line, more<br />

fl exible tape options, and speed – are well<br />

known, but price has usually been a barrier.<br />

Despite its low price the MF508L has some<br />

features you wouldn’t expect on a machine in<br />

this price bracket. Tracing rollers instead of<br />

shoes throughout the machine give an excellent<br />

fi nish. And two heating units – one in the glue<br />

tank and one in the application head – mean<br />

the temperature of the glue can be very fi nely<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntrolled right where it’s applied.<br />

Installation was quick and simple. “Ross<br />

trained us on the machine” Anthony explains.<br />

“It’s plug and play really – you just turn it on.<br />

We’re all <strong>co</strong>nfi dent with the machine now.”<br />

The guys at Maymorn have quickly embraced<br />

their upgrade in technology – literally! “One<br />

of the guys in the workshop was so pleased<br />

to have the new machine he kissed it!” says<br />

Anthony.<br />

“Having the pieces <strong>co</strong>me off fi nished makes a<br />

huge difference. Not to have to do any further<br />

processing is saving us so much time. Our<br />

Casadei worked hard for years and years but<br />

with this machine we’re working so much<br />

faster. We’ve also got more flexibility of<br />

processing – 3mm solid clashings for example.<br />

And we’ve got the capacity to do a lot more<br />

processing for others too. This machine will<br />

make us money”.


latest release ... the Mini-Spraybench<br />

Egmont Air, specialists in dust & fume extraction have release a new Mini Spray-Bench unit for manufacturing and maintenance<br />

workshops. This innovative <strong>co</strong>ncept is the perfect solution for in-line spray-stations, linear production lines, or alternatively as a<br />

touch-up or trial-spray extraction booth for off-line or maintenance applications.<br />

“The spraybooth regulations are <strong>co</strong>nsidered<br />

onerous by many, who need a spray-painting<br />

facility for painting and/or gluing of small<br />

parts and <strong>co</strong>mponents” <strong>co</strong>mments Mr Cameron<br />

Prestidge from Egmont Air, “the Mini-<br />

Spraybench provides a fully-<strong>co</strong>mpliant solution<br />

for that application”<br />

This extractor has been designed to provide<br />

three primary functions;<br />

1. Safe capture of overspray from painting or<br />

gluing processes.<br />

2. Protection of the operators breathing zone<br />

from harmful gases.<br />

3. Compliance with spray-booth legislation<br />

and facilitating safe operating procedures.<br />

Clean air is drawn past the operator at 0.5m/s<br />

being the optimum airfl ow ratio to achieve<br />

extraction of excess overspray and harmful<br />

gases without disturbing the spray pattern<br />

required for a perfect paint fi nish. Parts are<br />

placed on the turntable which can be rotated<br />

so all sides of the objects are painted evenly.<br />

Concertina filter-paper captures the sticky<br />

paint or glue overspray and the clean air then<br />

passes through the fl ame-proof rated fan and<br />

discharges out the top of the unit. The discharge<br />

outlet has a simple square fl ange for ducting<br />

<strong>co</strong>nnection; ducting (supplied separately)<br />

and clean-air must discharge vertically to<br />

atmosphere.<br />

The unit <strong>co</strong>mes <strong>co</strong>mplete with fl ame-proof<br />

rated fan, single-stage filtration, turntable<br />

and can be quickly assembled on-site by 2<br />

persons in 1 hour. Discharge-ducting, two-stage<br />

fi ltration, spray-guns and <strong>co</strong>ntrol-boards are<br />

available separately.<br />

The Mini Spraybench<br />

• Designed for painting and gluing<br />

applications<br />

• Dry media filtration, optional 2-stage<br />

fi ltration available<br />

• Centrifugal fan, maintains optimum airfl ow<br />

under load<br />

• Stand-alone unit, no building fixture<br />

required<br />

• Quick on-site assembly and installation<br />

• Exe fl ame-proof certifi ed<br />

• Turntable for placement of objects to be<br />

sprayed<br />

Egmont Air has a huge range of ready-to-go<br />

spray-booth systems, especially designed<br />

for engineers, machinery dealers and woodworkers<br />

requiring a simple but effective spraybooth<br />

solution.<br />

Egmont Air’s range includes a range of both<br />

dry-media and wet-booth options so the best<br />

unit can be offered for any application where a<br />

generous quantity of overspray is created.<br />

Dry-booths provide an e<strong>co</strong>nomical solution<br />

for most engineering & machinery painting<br />

applications with a lower initial investment,<br />

inexpensive to operate, ease of fi lter disposal,<br />

and quiet, trouble-free operation.<br />

Wet-booths offer a superior fi ltration method for<br />

high-volume paint users, gluing applications and<br />

increased fi re protection safety. Contaminated<br />

air passes through 3 separate water-veils to<br />

remove all paint particulates. The water is then<br />

drained off through a paint separator where<br />

solids are <strong>co</strong>llected for safe disposal.<br />

Full professional advice is available from<br />

Egmont Air’s technical dept along with a free<br />

on-site <strong>co</strong>nsultation to evaluate your particular<br />

application and re<strong>co</strong>mmendations with a<br />

guaranteed solution.<br />

mityboy at the beach<br />

A few blocks away from the famous Coromandel beach is Mastercraft Kitchens Whangamata<br />

Run by Clive and Sue Roberts the<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpany, which is also known<br />

as Whangamata Woodworks,<br />

was established 18 years ago<br />

when Clive and a fellow builder<br />

branched into joinery, unsure<br />

if the town was large enough<br />

to support a joinery business.<br />

Three kitchens later they gave up<br />

building altogether to <strong>co</strong>ncentrate<br />

on joinery. The decision to stop<br />

building was a deliberate one,<br />

and the <strong>co</strong>mpany enjoys a lot<br />

of support – and subsequent<br />

referrals – from local builders.<br />

And Whangamata Woodworks has<br />

been a major player in the region’s<br />

development – particularly of<br />

up-market holiday homes – ever<br />

since.<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 60<br />

As well as being the Mastercraft<br />

Kitchens franchise in the area,<br />

Whangamata Woodworks also<br />

provide a wide range of solid<br />

timber and joinery services,<br />

including pre-hung doors and a<br />

paint booth. Add to the mix their<br />

new Mityboy and you have a local<br />

business that offers a wide range<br />

of effi cient and quality solutions<br />

to Whangamata and wider<br />

Coromandel joinery market.<br />

CNC technology was something<br />

Clive had been attracted to –<br />

and evaluating – for 10 years.<br />

“I visited AWISA and <strong>co</strong>uld<br />

immediately see the benefits.<br />

But CNC scared the shit out<br />

of me because I’m <strong>co</strong>mputer<br />

illiterate!” he says. But Clive’s<br />

personal lack of <strong>co</strong>nfi dence with<br />

the <strong>co</strong>mputer side of CNC didn’t<br />

stop him introducing <strong>co</strong>mputer<br />

aided design, in preparation for<br />

the eventual transition from panel<br />

saw to CNC kitchen manufacture.<br />

Changes in the business, including<br />

a substantial building extension<br />

as well as buying out his business<br />

partner meant the CNC project was<br />

put on hold waiting for fi nances,<br />

but this gave Clive plenty of time<br />

to fully investigate CNC market<br />

and choose the most appropriate<br />

machine.<br />

After much deliberation<br />

Clive eventually settled on a<br />

Mityboy from Jacks, <strong>co</strong>mplete<br />

with PRO100 kitchen design<br />

software. Part of the reason to<br />

go with the Australian-made<br />

machine was Jacks’ reputation for<br />

service and support. “We knew<br />

there’d be a steep learning curve<br />

moving to CNC manufacture, so<br />

it is important to know we have<br />

support available when we need<br />

it” says Clive.<br />

He was also impressed by the<br />

PRO100 software package.<br />

“We’ve had two of the bigger<br />

kitchen design packages here,<br />

but I felt they were expensive<br />

for what we got – particularly<br />

technical help and the ongoing<br />

update packages.” Having worked<br />

with some of the biggest software


packages in the industry, inhouse<br />

Design Consultant Lorraine<br />

Fuller is very happy working in<br />

PRO100. Following a customer<br />

visit, Lorraine prepares a 3D<br />

design in PRO100, and then does<br />

all of the pricing. When <strong>co</strong>nfi rmed,<br />

she passes the fi le to James who<br />

takes the fi le through the steps<br />

to prepare for machining, before<br />

transferring it to the Mityboy via<br />

USB stick.<br />

Even knowing about the quality<br />

of machine and service they were<br />

buying, Factory Manager James<br />

Drew didn’t believe it when<br />

Buddy from Jacks told him they’d<br />

start running jobs the week of<br />

installation. “But it was true. The<br />

Mityboy went in at a particularly<br />

busy time for us late last year, but<br />

the day after installation we cut<br />

out two really <strong>co</strong>mplicated jobs.<br />

What really stood out for me was<br />

the fact that during installation I<br />

was using the saw right beside the<br />

Mityboy during <strong>co</strong>mmissioning.<br />

And while I worked away on the<br />

saw, the guys were loading sheet<br />

after sheet onto the CNC, getting<br />

perfectly cut pieces with the holes<br />

drilled!”<br />

Since installation, Clive and<br />

James are glowing about their<br />

Mityboy. “I <strong>co</strong>uldn’t go back to<br />

cutting kitchens the old way” says<br />

James. “It used to drive me crazy<br />

watching a guy spend all morning<br />

cutting out a curved pantry” says<br />

Clive. “That basically forced me<br />

to buy CNC – just seeing that time<br />

wasted”. James estimates whereas<br />

they used to cut a <strong>co</strong>uple of sheets<br />

an hour before <strong>edging</strong>, then getting<br />

all the jigs out for drilling holes,<br />

the Mityboy processes six sheets<br />

an hour, including holes.<br />

Clive has also very sensibly<br />

allowed for the fact that moving<br />

to CNC takes time, support, and<br />

patience. So it’s no surprise that<br />

James has recently been on an<br />

Advanced Users training <strong>co</strong>urse<br />

with Anthony Scammell from<br />

PRO100. “I came back with a<br />

fried brain” he says. “There’s so<br />

much more I’m learning to do.<br />

For example while PRO100 has<br />

the <strong>co</strong>mplete library of kitchen<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponents to use, sometimes we<br />

want to vary the distance between<br />

the drawer rail and drawer bottom,<br />

but still have the <strong>co</strong>nstruction<br />

holes drilled. So I’ve learned<br />

how to modify the appropriate<br />

settings from a standard cabinet,<br />

and over time I’m adding new<br />

cabinets specially adapted to the<br />

kind of work we do. Once I’ve<br />

done it, next time it’s just a matter<br />

of selecting the required cabinet,<br />

and changing the dimensions. The<br />

software does the rest”.<br />

The Whangamata team have been<br />

quick learners, and have adapted<br />

to CNC manufacture very well<br />

- something their Jacks rep Tony<br />

Christiansen has noticed. “We’d<br />

usually expect to be talking to a<br />

new CNC customer reasonably<br />

regularly in the fi rst few weeks<br />

after installation, while they learn<br />

what they’re doing” says Tony.<br />

“But these guys never called!<br />

They were so quiet I had our<br />

service engineer call just to make<br />

sure they were ok – which they<br />

certainly were!”<br />

James and Clive have also been<br />

investigating other possibilities<br />

with CNC – such as stairtreads.<br />

“To be successful we need to have<br />

a strong point-of-difference” says<br />

Clive. “And you don’t get there<br />

without moving outside of your<br />

<strong>co</strong>mfort zone. Which we did to<br />

invest in CNC during a recession,<br />

but I know it was the right<br />

decision. Effi ciency is important,<br />

and the Mityboy is undeniably<br />

effi cient. But we now have the<br />

capacity to expand as the market<br />

picks up, and we’re working on<br />

diversifying what the business<br />

can offer customers” Clive says.<br />

“We’ve barely scratched the<br />

surface in terms of what we want<br />

to do with the Mityboy”.<br />

VacuMaster “Comfort 180” – lifting capacity up to 250 kg!<br />

Safe handling of<br />

airtight or porous panels<br />

FDS Vacuum in Auckland round off their vacuum lifting product<br />

range at the top end with the VacuMaster “Comfort 180” series,<br />

specialist vacuum lifting devices for rotating sheet steel, wooden<br />

sheet and panel products. The new VacuMaster “Comfort 180”<br />

lifting devices permits a single person to move, rotate, and handle<br />

fl at loads weighing up to 250 kg easily, safely and precisely. Four<br />

different versions of this device are available: the VacuMaster<br />

“COMFORT” horizontal can handle panels up to a maximum weight<br />

of 750 kg; the VacuMaster Standard, a load weight of up to 2000 kg;<br />

the VacuMaster “Comfort 90” can lift panels with a weight of up to<br />

750 kg to a 90° position; and all of the VacuMaster range up to 750kg<br />

can lift panels using the alternative, “basic” <strong>co</strong>ntrol system.<br />

The Schmalz VacuMaster “Comfort 180” illustrated can handle<br />

panels up to 2400 x 1800 with a maximum weight of 250 kg but<br />

has to have a reasonable thickness to provide rigidity.<br />

While the fi rst four versions each have two or four suction pads,<br />

the remainder can have up to eight pads depending on the load.<br />

These suction pads can also be positioned individually to match the<br />

panels to be lifted. The lifting devices have a very robust mechanical<br />

<strong>co</strong>nstruction and are thus suitable for use in the rough <strong>co</strong>nditions<br />

in workshops and factories. The versions for <strong>co</strong>mbined horizontal/<br />

vertical/90º/180° handling of panels have a swivelling system driven<br />

by an electric motor that cannot be actuated inadvertently. The<br />

VacuMaster “Comfort 180” devices are delivered fully assembled<br />

and ready for use with the electric hoist pre-wired to suit the “raise/<br />

lower” two speed <strong>co</strong>ntrols. The vacuum pump used for generation<br />

of the vacuum have a very high suction capacity, permitting even<br />

porous materials (38 mm thick chipboards are regarded as porous in<br />

vacuum technology) to be handled safely and without damage.<br />

Monitoring and warning devices ensure safe operation in all<br />

<strong>co</strong>nceivable situations. The vacuum lifting devices of the<br />

VacuMaster “Comfort 180” series are suitable for the handling<br />

of steel sheet, raw and laminated chipboard, of MDF, OSB, staff<br />

and plasterboard panels, and of plastic panels in stockrooms and<br />

production.<br />

The recent <strong>co</strong>mpletion of the Novotel Hotel at Auckland<br />

International Airport marked the <strong>co</strong>mpletion of a six month<br />

project for Auckland specialist timber fabricator Woodform Design.<br />

The <strong>co</strong>ntract to the main <strong>co</strong>ntractor Hawkins Construction required<br />

the manufacture, supply and installation of over 450 a<strong>co</strong>ustic wall<br />

panels made out of Southland Maple Beech (NZ grown and FSC<br />

certifi ed FM - COC 001148) supplied by Tuatapere based Lindsay<br />

& Dixon Ltd. The foyers, reception areas, <strong>co</strong>nference rooms and<br />

lift shaft facings, around 550m2 in total, were <strong>co</strong>vered by the panel<br />

in a building which is distinctly New Zealand.<br />

Each panel was <strong>co</strong>nstructed of strips of Southland Maple Beech<br />

of varying width and depth to provide a visually appealing and<br />

a<strong>co</strong>ustically effi cient panel that not only provides relief from an<br />

A380 super-jumbo taking off next door but also <strong>co</strong>unterbalances<br />

the prevalent use of hard surfaces such as glass, stone, marble and<br />

metal which feature in the hotel design.<br />

Woodform Managing Director Dave Pratt said the job was both<br />

challenging and exciting. “The precision involved at all stages of<br />

the job was critical to its success. The bulk of the panels were made<br />

on four different jigs with different layouts, each strip of beech<br />

was separated by a 5mm gap with a 2 1/2 mm gap between panels.<br />

Each piece of Southland Maple Beech had to be sanded, sealed and<br />

polished on all six sides to ensure stability of the timber in its air<br />

<strong>co</strong>nditioned environment.”<br />

Installation was equally challenging. Placement followed a precise<br />

plan which ensured identical panels never faced each other. “With<br />

so many parallel lines we were working off a very small tolerance<br />

of less than 1mm, this caused some diffi culties in dealing with the<br />

vagrancies of <strong>co</strong>nstruction, where tolerances can be larger, and<br />

required the <strong>co</strong>nstruction of special panels adjusted to fi t <strong>co</strong>rners<br />

and meeting points with other <strong>co</strong>nstruction materials.<br />

Dave Pratt said the job displayed the versatility of timber and of<br />

his fi rms ability to work with it. It also displayed the need to work<br />

in with partners on a project such as this. “Hawkins Construction<br />

were great in ac<strong>co</strong>mmodating our requirements on what was a very<br />

busy site. The achievements by our installers Rean Construction Ltd<br />

needs acknowledgement, Tony and Leon <strong>co</strong>mplimented the visual<br />

expression the architects were looking for. Thanks to all.”<br />

new designs for maximum wood yield<br />

The name Weinig stands for <strong>co</strong>mprehensive expertise in solid wood processing. In Hanover the full-range supplier exhibited innovative<br />

technology divided into four product areas Pre-cutting, Profi ling, End profi ling and Windows. Innovations ranged from separating,<br />

cutting, scanning, optimisation, fi nger-jointing and gluing through planing and profi ling to window production and automation.<br />

Planing and profi ling<br />

Especially innovative, applicationoriented<br />

solutions were at the<br />

forefront at Ligna 2011. A<br />

Powermat 2000 PP for producing<br />

MDF panels in working widths<br />

up to 600 mm was just one of the<br />

exhibits. This machine is able to<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntrol several processes over<br />

large areas in a single run. In<br />

addition a Powermat 500 for the<br />

production of window edges and<br />

a Hydromat 450 for working large<br />

widths for sizes 450 x 300 mm<br />

was also on display. The heavy<br />

Hydromat 3500 for high-speed<br />

planing represents the upper<br />

performance range.<br />

Cube: reinventing planing<br />

The Cube <strong>co</strong>ntinues the long<br />

series of Weinig innovations in<br />

planing systems. The <strong>co</strong>mpact,<br />

user-friendly machine is designed<br />

primarily for businesses which<br />

use traditional methods to plane<br />

on four sides. Time-<strong>co</strong>nsuming<br />

adjustments are a thing of the<br />

past with the Cube, the high risk<br />

of errors has been eliminated. The<br />

intelligent “moulder preview”<br />

laser process guarantees maximum<br />

wood yield. Four-sided processing<br />

in a single run ensures perfect<br />

right angles, true dimensions and<br />

parallel lines. The fast, highly<br />

practical Cube will pay for itself<br />

in a very short space of time. In<br />

suction mode energy savings of up<br />

to 60 % can be achieved.<br />

New Weinig systems for trades<br />

In addition to the Cube, at<br />

Hanover Weinig exhibited a range<br />

of other attractive machines for<br />

craftsmen working in wood. The<br />

new FlexiRip Compact from the<br />

RaimannLine stands out, currently<br />

the most flexible cross-cutting<br />

saw for artisan businesses in the<br />

market and the new UniRip for<br />

ultimate accurate, fast cutting<br />

with the QuickFix saw shaft and<br />

the Safety Plus-System for maximum<br />

operator safety. Weinig<br />

exhibited the new VarioRip 310,<br />

the successor to the proven multiblade<br />

and optimised circular saw<br />

Profi Rip 310. The double-sided<br />

prism guide system ensures chain<br />

guides without play, resulting in<br />

excellent cutting results.<br />

Wood optimisation<br />

Maximum wood yield is the<br />

decisive factor in determining<br />

the profitability of a business.<br />

Weinig has long been setting new<br />

standards in this field with its<br />

innovative optimisation solutions<br />

in the DimterLine. The latest<br />

version of the fastest cross-cut<br />

saw in the world, the OptiCut 450<br />

Quantum II, offers another 15%<br />

more performance. It was viewed<br />

as a <strong>co</strong>mplete system at Hanover<br />

capable of cutting and optimising<br />

up to 100 running metres wood/<br />

min. From destacking the raw<br />

material to restacking the cut<br />

lengths, the whole process is fully<br />

automatic.<br />

Weinig demonstrated its expertise<br />

in detection of errors and quality<br />

sorting with the CombiScan +<br />

200 R for double-sided scanning<br />

via laser and <strong>co</strong>lour camera and<br />

the EScan for certified rigidity<br />

measurements. The new gluing<br />

press ProfiPress PPL II 2500<br />

generated great interest in the<br />

“Optimisation” sector. This<br />

universal press reduces grinding to<br />

a minimum. Multi-track operation<br />

is still possible with a difference in<br />

width of 150 mm. This means the<br />

unit can achieve especially high<br />

performance.<br />

Finger-jointing systems<br />

Finger-jointing allows you to<br />

make longer lengths from short<br />

parts with high stability and<br />

<strong>co</strong>nsistently high quality. Wood<br />

improvement through fingerjointing<br />

is therefore be<strong>co</strong>ming<br />

more and more interesting and<br />

has excellent prospects due to<br />

a shortage of resources. The<br />

Weinig Gre<strong>co</strong>nLine offers a wide<br />

range of finger-jointing units<br />

for all performance classes. The<br />

CombiPact was shown at Hanover.<br />

Its outstanding feature is the newly<br />

developed drive technology which<br />

raises this unit to the performance<br />

level of series which previously<br />

were superior. The CombiPact is<br />

designed fl exibly for horizontal<br />

and vertical operation. Pre-s<strong>co</strong>rers<br />

ensure especially high quality of<br />

fi nished goods.<br />

Weinig window production<br />

The successful Conturex<br />

profi ling centre is known for its<br />

fully automatic, <strong>co</strong>st-effective<br />

production of single parts.<br />

Workpieces are clamped in position<br />

for <strong>co</strong>mplete processing. Designed<br />

as an open, modular system, the<br />

Conturex guarantees customers<br />

the greatest possible security<br />

for the future. At Ligna Weinig<br />

demonstrated its high fl exibility<br />

using a 124 model with the new 5<br />

axis technology. Demonstrations<br />

at the stand included window,<br />

door and <strong>co</strong>nservatory elements<br />

to illustrate the almost limitless<br />

possibilities of the profiling<br />

centre.<br />

New window centre<br />

A new system for surface<br />

machining for windows, doors<br />

and <strong>co</strong>nservatories celebrate its<br />

world launch at Ligna. Weinig is<br />

expanding its product programme<br />

in this segment. The new clamping<br />

system is registered for patenting<br />

and offers fast, highly flexible<br />

operation. The automatic <strong>co</strong>nsole<br />

new to NZ<br />

Centauro CNC machinery<br />

for joinery <strong>co</strong>mponents and doors<br />

Jacks are pleased to introduce the Alfa, and Beta – CNC machinery for joinery<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponents and doors. Manufactured by Centauro from Italy, the Alfa and<br />

Beta represent the latest European technology for processing doors and other<br />

timber <strong>co</strong>mponents – and offering at least 100% effi ciency savings over manual<br />

methods.<br />

The 3-axis Alfa offers a variety of milling operations for doors or windows,<br />

including hinge recessing, lock slots, handle holes, key slots and grooves etc. With<br />

a large milling capacity of up to 2800mm the Alfa can also be suitable for stair and<br />

furniture <strong>co</strong>mponents.<br />

The Beta is a fully programmable 3 axis horizontal CNC swing chisel mortiser<br />

suitable for general joinery and furniture production. The machine can be equipped<br />

with a separate dedicated programmable hollow chisel head for producing the<br />

small mortise holes for glazing bars. Alternatively a horizontal milling head can<br />

be specifi ed that can be used for hinge recessing, slotting for louvre doors etc. The<br />

Beta can work off either the face of the timber or the thickness, and can produce<br />

mirror image <strong>co</strong>mponents (left/right hand) in one program.<br />

Programming of both machines is extremely simple thanks to the <strong>co</strong>lour graphic<br />

touch screen <strong>co</strong>ntroller using pre-installed electronic macros.<br />

Jacks and Centauro will be holding demonstrations of both these machines<br />

during July – with limited space available. For further details or bookings <strong>co</strong>ntact<br />

Longevity through quality<br />

experience and the right equipment brings success<br />

Having been around a long time and<br />

having established a solid track re<strong>co</strong>rd<br />

for quality work and on time delivery has<br />

been the mainstay for Commercial Joinery<br />

(Wgtn) Ltd. Established back in 1988, the<br />

business is located in the Wellington suburb<br />

of Kilbirnie operating from an 8000 square<br />

foot site they moved to in 2008. The <strong>co</strong>mpany<br />

has developed its reputation specializing in<br />

the design and manufacture of customised<br />

kitchen <strong>co</strong>mponentry as well as a wide range<br />

of timber joinery including doors, windows,<br />

staircases and handrails in the Wellington area<br />

and environs.<br />

Manager Barry Telford <strong>co</strong>mments “Producing<br />

custom made product is quite demanding. No<br />

two jobs are the same. We have found that using<br />

<strong>co</strong>nventional machinery and hand making<br />

such things as cabinetry and other <strong>co</strong>mponents<br />

using experienced staff has worked very well<br />

for us.”<br />

The <strong>co</strong>mpany recently purchased an SCM<br />

SI400EP Class dimension saw from Gabbett<br />

Machinery which forms a big part of their<br />

operation. “This saw had a number of features<br />

we were interested in to make panel processing<br />

easier and more effi cient <strong>co</strong>nsidering it is used<br />

on average at least three to four hours daily.”<br />

says Mr Telford.<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 66<br />

“In particular, the machine has the Parallelogram<br />

swiveling crosscut fence for angular cutting<br />

<strong>co</strong>mplete with angular digital display and three<br />

digital stops on the crosscut fence which gives<br />

us the stability we need when machining large<br />

dimensional panels. It can be easily moved<br />

from one position to another due to the rapid<br />

locking/unlocking of the fi xing devices.”<br />

The cutting accuracy of the saw is down to<br />

0.005mm along the entire 3.8 metre carriage<br />

meaning the load capacity is a lot higher<br />

than other machines. Mr Telford points out<br />

“This accuracy <strong>co</strong>mbined with its rigidity and<br />

<strong>co</strong>mplete lack of vibration and the powered<br />

rise, fall and blade tilting and the fastest<br />

ripfence available on the market make for an<br />

easily used machine. The easily understood<br />

electronic <strong>co</strong>ntroller is very handy as well<br />

given that in our operation the machine is used<br />

by several staff.”<br />

The dimension saw fi ts well as there are several<br />

other SCM factory machines in the business.<br />

“We make a lot of different product and view<br />

ourselves as a one stop shop for all our clients’<br />

needs.” says Mr Telford. Indeed, the <strong>co</strong>mpany<br />

has had some quite high profi le work in recent<br />

Joinerysoft adapts to the New Zealand market<br />

Launched seven years ago, Joinerysoft’s Joinery Management Software (JMS) has shaken up the joinery industry and is spreading<br />

throughout the English speaking world. Providing software for joinery manufacturers of custom and heritage windows, double hung,<br />

doors (internal & external), stairs and gates, Joinerysoft has grown from a UK only <strong>co</strong>mpany to one serving joinery manufacturers<br />

in South Africa, Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand.<br />

JMS provides joiners with the tools<br />

they need to not only design and<br />

make beautiful products but also<br />

manage their business effectively,<br />

including <strong>co</strong>st analysis, pricing,<br />

supplier orders, manufacturing<br />

sheets, automatic machine output,<br />

delivery notes and invoicing.<br />

Steve Bencich, of Ceder Windows,<br />

based in Victoria, Australia<br />

purchased JMS in August last year.<br />

He <strong>co</strong>mments, “Since purchasing<br />

the program I can only say how<br />

it has improved all sections of<br />

my <strong>co</strong>mpany: Presentation;<br />

Accuracy; Inform able for both<br />

clients and factory staff; as well<br />

as increased my <strong>co</strong>nfi dence that<br />

prices are <strong>co</strong>rrect.<br />

With many joinery manufacturers<br />

in New Zealand still having a<br />

diffi cult time due to a depressed<br />

market, being customer focused<br />

and offering a fast professional<br />

presentation can make the<br />

difference between winning an<br />

order or missing out.<br />

Visiting New Zealand last year,<br />

Managing Director, Alan Turner is<br />

returning this year for the Master<br />

Joiners Conference in June to<br />

demonstrate how JMS has been<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 68<br />

adapted to better suit the needs of<br />

New Zealand joiners as a direct<br />

result of last year’s feedback.<br />

Committed to helping New<br />

Zealand joinery manufacturers<br />

Alan plans to visit personally<br />

each year and offers local backup<br />

through Bruce Syder based in<br />

Palmerston North as well as<br />

a dedicated technical support<br />

team.<br />

Keith Trask of Serene Joinery<br />

in Auckland purchased JMS 12<br />

months ago. He says, “Purchasing<br />

JMS we have formed a partnership<br />

with Joinerysoft. They have<br />

proved efficient and answered<br />

our queries in a timely manner. I<br />

would re<strong>co</strong>mmend Joinerysoft to<br />

anyone. The biggest benefi t to us is<br />

the customer focused presentation<br />

of quotations, accurate instant<br />

pricing, quick and accurate cutting<br />

lists and integrated invoicing.<br />

Holding all the information about<br />

the job in one source reduces<br />

duplication of information and<br />

ensures a <strong>co</strong>nsistent customer<br />

focus.”<br />

Joinerysoft is in the process of<br />

making JMS even easier to set up<br />

and use by including NZ standard<br />

section sizes in their templates<br />

and pre-inputting fittings and<br />

gear from leading NZ suppliers to<br />

reduce <strong>co</strong>nfi guration during startup.<br />

While designed to be fl exible<br />

for custom and heritage joinery,<br />

utilising templates as a starting<br />

block for design saves time where<br />

manufacturers have a stock size<br />

or <strong>co</strong>mmon styles. During his<br />

trip in June Alan will be visiting<br />

hardware and timber suppliers to<br />

ensure that JMS not only includes<br />

images and pricing for all major<br />

suppliers but also prints purchase<br />

orders to further save joinery<br />

manufacturers time.<br />

Alan Turner, <strong>co</strong>mments: “The<br />

feedback received last year from<br />

joinery manufacturers in New<br />

Zealand was valued and has been<br />

implemented to provide a better<br />

product even more suited to the<br />

market. It was very interesting<br />

to see the difference in the way<br />

joinery is <strong>co</strong>nstructed. One of the<br />

main areas is how New Zealand<br />

<strong>co</strong>nstruct the cill of a window,<br />

due to the limited sizes of timber<br />

available. The New Zealand cill is<br />

now available within JMS, so when<br />

we say we listen to customers we<br />

really do, and the enhancements<br />

regularly introduced demonstrate<br />

this.”<br />

Since last year’s visit several<br />

features have been introduced<br />

specifi cally for the New Zealand<br />

market. These include: bifold<br />

doors, New Zealand cill<br />

<strong>co</strong>nstruction, and flyscreens.<br />

Also very soon Joinerysoft will be<br />

including cross sections, with 3D<br />

images and profi les also <strong>co</strong>ming<br />

soon to all customers as a free<br />

upgrade with maintenance and<br />

support.<br />

JMS is designed for all sizes<br />

of joinery manufacturer as<br />

JMS can be purchased in two<br />

formats to make it more specifi c<br />

to the needs of large and small<br />

joiners. Joinerysoft offers JMS-<br />

Professional version of the same<br />

software which includes advanced<br />

features such as time and machine<br />

scheduling, management statistics<br />

such as order success rate and


profitability, and the ability to<br />

link to ac<strong>co</strong>unting programs.<br />

The alternative version JMS<br />

provides all the essential features<br />

necessary for small joiners to<br />

design, manufacture and manage<br />

their businesses without the big<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpany features or price tag.<br />

Speaking at the Master Joiners<br />

Conference in Rotorua Alan<br />

wel<strong>co</strong>mes the opportunity to fi nd<br />

out more about the regulation<br />

changes of NZS: 4211 affecting<br />

the New Zealand industry. Having<br />

just gone through a period of<br />

change in the UK joinery market<br />

with the introduction of energy<br />

ratings and the requirement to<br />

provide U-values, Joinerysoft is<br />

ideally placed to provide similar<br />

information for New Zealand<br />

joinery manufacturers.<br />

“We have already introduced a Uvalue<br />

calculator into JMS and now<br />

produce certificates for joinery<br />

manufacturers to present to their<br />

end customers demonstrating<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpliance with regulations.”<br />

With the development work<br />

already <strong>co</strong>mpleted to provide<br />

this feature inputting the NZ<br />

regulations into JMS will provide<br />

a NZ specifi c U-value calculator<br />

quickly and easily. Looking to<br />

learn more about NZS 4211 and<br />

the new section sizes that are<br />

being introduced into the NZ<br />

industry, Alan plans to include<br />

these section sizes preset within<br />

JMS to ease their introduction for<br />

joinery manufacturers.<br />

The title of Alan’s talk at the<br />

Master Joiners Conference is<br />

‘Software the New Joinery<br />

Machine’. Joinery software<br />

should be treated like a traditional<br />

woodworking machine, but it’s<br />

a machine in a different room,<br />

the office. Software can help<br />

increase your professionalism,<br />

improve effi ciency and increase<br />

profits. Software can also help<br />

the joiner <strong>co</strong>mply with the latest<br />

legislation. See why over 550<br />

joinery <strong>co</strong>mpanies use this<br />

software.<br />

If you would like to speak to Alan<br />

further about how JMS can help<br />

your business, he will be arriving<br />

in Auckland on 19th June and<br />

leaving Christchurch on 30th June<br />

to fl y to Melbourne, then Sydney<br />

and fi nally Brisbane before fl ying<br />

back to the UK. You can <strong>co</strong>ntact<br />

HOLZMA<br />

solutions from S to XXXL<br />

Holzma is taking another big step<br />

forward with the new 4 series.<br />

This innovative generation of<br />

saws was presented for the fi rst<br />

time at LIGNA 2011. The new<br />

models integrate perfectly with<br />

all the other series in the closely<br />

interlinked product portfolio,<br />

providing customers with more<br />

possibilities than ever before.<br />

The new 4 series<br />

Many of the innovations that have<br />

already proved themselves in the 3<br />

series can now be found in the new<br />

4 series. These include the energysaving<br />

e<strong>co</strong>Line technologies<br />

which are now being marketed<br />

under the name of “e<strong>co</strong>Plus”.<br />

Other new features include a<br />

window in the pressure beam,<br />

which allows a clear view of<br />

the rear machine table, twofi<br />

ngered clamps throughout and<br />

a table height of 920 mm. As<br />

in the 3 series, a <strong>co</strong>mpletely<br />

redesigned saw carriage <strong>co</strong>mbines<br />

improved performance with high<br />

energy effi ciency. It also allows<br />

the installation of new optional<br />

extras such as the new “ascending<br />

vertical saw” option. Other new<br />

features markedly improve<br />

operator <strong>co</strong>mfort and enhance<br />

performance.<br />

e<strong>co</strong>Line is now e<strong>co</strong>Plus<br />

Back at the 2009 LIGNA Fair,<br />

the e<strong>co</strong>Line technologies from<br />

HOLZMA were a cause of great<br />

interest. In the 3 series, they<br />

achieved an energy saving of<br />

up to 20% <strong>co</strong>mpared with the<br />

previous models. EFF1 motors,<br />

the green stand by button, an<br />

improved extraction system and<br />

much more impressed customers<br />

from all over the world. Then, in<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 70<br />

HPP 380 profiLine<br />

2010, HOLZMA demonstrated<br />

that e<strong>co</strong>Line was a strategy that<br />

they were <strong>co</strong>mmitted to pursuing<br />

when they implemented a further<br />

energy saving of up to 20%.<br />

This was achieved by further<br />

improving the extraction system,<br />

by optimising the pneumatic<br />

system and replacing pneumatic<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponents with electronic<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponents and by developing<br />

new design approaches.<br />

Innovation Center<br />

HOLZMA showcased a further<br />

technological highlight with the<br />

new “s<strong>co</strong>ring saw bearing”. It<br />

uses what is called an absolute<br />

measuring system. With its<br />

help, the position of the saw<br />

blade is saved, allowing precise<br />

repositioning after a saw blade<br />

has been changed. This allows,<br />

among other things, the “vertical<br />

s<strong>co</strong>ring” of books. The edge of the<br />

entire book is s<strong>co</strong>red to a depth<br />

of up to 15 mm, making this a<br />

perfect optional extra for cutting<br />

parts with veneer, paper or ABS<br />

edges.<br />

XP stands for extreme performance<br />

Robertson and Sinclair Ltd represent two<br />

of the worlds leading tool makers, Leu<strong>co</strong><br />

Germany and Vortex USA. Their differing<br />

product ranges <strong>co</strong>mpliment each other enabling<br />

them to provide customers with an extensive<br />

range of tooling to suit the wide range of<br />

materials used in NZ.<br />

The Robertson and Sinclair sales team all<br />

have long service in the industry, and they<br />

have the knowledge to re<strong>co</strong>mmend the most<br />

appropriate tooling to suit the type of material<br />

and machinery you are using the tool in. The<br />

benefi ts when using the <strong>co</strong>rrect setup are, no<br />

chipping on either side of the material, and no<br />

sanding is required. The panel can go straight<br />

onto the edge bander. The life span also<br />

increases <strong>co</strong>nsiderably, reducing down time<br />

and increasing profi t margins.<br />

The latest tooling developed by Vortex is the<br />

3100XP series of <strong>co</strong>mpression spiral cutters,<br />

which have been <strong>co</strong>mpletely re-designed to<br />

suit hard to cut materials, such as the new high<br />

pressure laminates now being used. This new<br />

range has been tested in our market by high<br />

volume users, who monitor the metres cut by<br />

each tool.<br />

3100XP SERIES<br />

Graeme Britten trialled various cutters before fi nding the Vortex XP by far superior for their work.<br />

One of these has been local motorhome<br />

manufacturer Kea. The <strong>co</strong>mpany needed<br />

a stylish lightweight panel for the fi tout of<br />

the interior of their vehicles and settled on<br />

European Poplar 16mm ply panels. They were<br />

light and good looking, but as a softwood were<br />

diffi cult to machine and very hard to achieve a<br />

keen edge. Kea CNC operator Graeme Britten<br />

worked closely with Robertson and Sinclair<br />

in trialling various cutters before fi nding the<br />

Vortex XP far superior for their work.<br />

U.S.A<br />

Extreme Performance Compression Spirals<br />

Vortex have just released the best performing <strong>co</strong>mpression spiral available on the market.<br />

Completely re-designed to suit Hard to Cut materials, which are tough on tool life.<br />

VORTEX 3100XP Compression Spiral<br />

Trialled in NZ over the last six months, this spiral has been proven to last 5 to 10<br />

times longer in diffi cult to cut materials, such as high pressure laminate where<br />

customers have been achieving 50 to 100 sheets. These cutters have also shown<br />

amazing tool life in MDF and particle board.<br />

If this spiral doesn’t out perform your existing cutter, we will supply your replacement at half price<br />

Tooling • Saw Doctors • Woodworking Machines<br />

Celebrating our 50th Anniversary 1961 - 2011<br />

Graeme cuts all the panel for the interior<br />

fi tout of around 20 vehicles a month, which<br />

represents hundreds of panels a month. He<br />

has found the Vortex XP lasts a month to fi ve<br />

weeks by far the longest life. “Some spirals we<br />

trialled only lasted a <strong>co</strong>uple of weeks and none<br />

gave as good an edge as we are achieving with<br />

the Vortex. The longevity of these cutter is so<br />

good we don’t bother with resharpening - it’s<br />

done its job and we throw it away.”<br />

Dr Buzz<br />

Half way there … or half way to go<br />

This issue of Joiners marks half way through<br />

2011 and the fi rst half has certainly had<br />

its moments. The Queensland floods, the<br />

Christchurch earthquake followed by the<br />

Japanese disaster has left us wondering what<br />

<strong>co</strong>uld happen next.<br />

There will be plenty of us who have re-visited<br />

our insurance policies to see what kind of <strong>co</strong>ver<br />

we have and whether it would be satisfactory<br />

in the face of these kinds of disasters. Certainly<br />

there is something to be said for having solid<br />

insurance <strong>co</strong>ver.<br />

However a <strong>co</strong>unterpoint to this is that insurance<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpanies are not throwing money around<br />

without putting claimants through the hoops.<br />

It is not proving to be a simple matter to get<br />

payments and <strong>co</strong>mmitments from insurance<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpanies to allow businesses to re<strong>co</strong>ver and<br />

get back to where they were. While this is<br />

understandable given that they are a business<br />

just like everyone else, the idea is that they have<br />

risk assessors to try to estimate the likelihood<br />

of certain events happening. It does appear that<br />

there have been a larger than usual number of<br />

disasters worldwide and <strong>co</strong>nsequently they are<br />

not making the money that they had planned.<br />

But isn’t that why we have insurance<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpanies. They are the ones who are taking<br />

the risk. Usually it works out fi ne and they<br />

pocket healthy profi ts which are distributed to<br />

shareholders or re-invested. In this instance,<br />

it appears they have had worse issues than<br />

expected.<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 72<br />

That’s the way it rolls. So suck it up as they<br />

say.<br />

While the Christchurch earthquake will no<br />

doubt have had an overall negative effect on the<br />

New Zealand e<strong>co</strong>nomy, from the woodworking<br />

industry perspective, there should be some<br />

positive spin off. Given that the <strong>co</strong>nstruction<br />

and building industry <strong>co</strong>mprise a signifi cant<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponent of the e<strong>co</strong>nomy, the re-build of<br />

Christchurch when it gets underway in earnest<br />

should provide an impetus which has an effect<br />

throughout the <strong>co</strong>untry.<br />

Whether it be <strong>co</strong>nstruction, fit-outs, office<br />

furniture etc we can expect a decent uplift at<br />

the end of 2011 and into 2012. That will be<br />

wel<strong>co</strong>med when it arrives.<br />

Expect it to be ac<strong>co</strong>mpanied however by a<br />

period of higher and persistent infl ation. While<br />

there doesn’t appear to be a lot of local pressure<br />

causing infl ation, it is building overseas and<br />

this will naturally fl ow through into the the NZ<br />

e<strong>co</strong>nomy. Our dollar is also trading above it’s<br />

likely resting point so a future lowering of the<br />

NZD will only add to infl ation.<br />

This will be ac<strong>co</strong>mpanied by higher interest<br />

rates though I suspect not the 15 to 20% rates<br />

the oldies of us remember from the 80’s.<br />

Given that it was the low deposit interest rates<br />

which forced a lot of retired people to “invest”<br />

in the likes of Blue Chip etc because of the low<br />

returns from cash on deposit – higher bank<br />

deposit rates may be a good thing.<br />

Higher interest rates will also suppress property<br />

values somewhat which should en<strong>co</strong>urage<br />

investment in more productive assets than<br />

property. A further goal of the government to<br />

<strong>co</strong>rrect imbalances in our e<strong>co</strong>nomy.<br />

Lets further hope for the Japanese Housewives<br />

and Belgian dentists to lose interest in the NZ<br />

dollar so that it can settle back down. I know<br />

it makes fl at screen TV’s and holidays overseas<br />

more expensive, but if it makes the exporters<br />

happy and lets our local manufacturers <strong>co</strong>mpete<br />

better against cheap imports, then I’m all for<br />

it.<br />

That’s the Buzz for now.<br />

See you next time.<br />

update<br />

Every quarter as I sit down to write this <strong>co</strong>lumn I hope to be able to talk<br />

about the imminent market uplift. However, yet again our industry<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntinues to face very challenging times, especially business people<br />

in Christchurch. Judging by the recent media headlines – “Building<br />

slump drags on”, “Building <strong>co</strong>nsents trends keeps falling”, “Housing<br />

data probably cannot get any worse”, etc. You would be forgiven for<br />

thinking that it all looks too hard.<br />

National new house <strong>co</strong>nsents are at a 40 year low and the key macro<br />

statistics indicate a slow e<strong>co</strong>nomy for some time yet. The GDP forecast<br />

is fl at (in<strong>co</strong>me levels), slower employment re<strong>co</strong>very (peoples <strong>co</strong>nfi dence<br />

in keeping their jobs), net migration (number of new people moving to<br />

New Zealand) translates to a drop in peoples willingness to spend money<br />

especially on new housing.<br />

The residential outlook looks fl at in the short term, while <strong>co</strong>mmercial<br />

looks better but is mixed. While there will be a re<strong>co</strong>very longer term, in<br />

the meantime businesses need to survive. What this means is that we will<br />

need to take a much closer look to search out the opportunities.<br />

How do you win? Standing out is the key. I came across a great quote<br />

recently, from a very successful business man called William Taylor.<br />

“Don’t aspire to be “pretty good” at everything – fi gure out how to be<br />

the absolute best of something”<br />

Recent research shows that today’s customers are more motivated by<br />

quality than quantity and by experience rather than objects. I read a NZ<br />

survey that found 58.7% of customers were either, neutral, dissatisfi ed<br />

or very dissatisfi ed with levels of service. The top 3 factors that defi ne<br />

good customer service are showing a willingness to help, listening and<br />

understanding your customers needs and taking responsibility to ensure<br />

those needs are met.<br />

I am currently touring the <strong>co</strong>untry delivering presentations to key<br />

customers of The Laminex Group on where I see the opportunities in the<br />

market. For example there are still strong prospects in the renovation<br />

market with over 70,000 kitchens being renovated annually. Over half<br />

of these renovations are in the mid market of customised kitchens.<br />

To support our kitchen customers to go after these kitchen renovations<br />

and other opportunities, The Laminex Group has recently launched<br />

a number of new products including Formica, Melteca and Samet<br />

Hardware. However, the product that has potential to add signifi cant<br />

value to our customers is Laminex Metaline – an innovative splashback<br />

product that can be cut to size and fabricated on site. Have a talk to your<br />

local sales representative if you haven’t yet received the information<br />

on this exciting new product. We have a number of other new products<br />

almost ready to go, so watch this space!<br />

As I sign off, I would just like to say that the road ahead is what we<br />

will make of it. There is no doubt that we are in very tough times and<br />

the outlook is fl at. However there are opportunities when you look<br />

closely. Driving a successful renovation experience is one-such key<br />

opportunity in the residential market – but to win it you must stand out<br />

and be remarkable. The Laminex Group is in the business of supporting<br />

successful customers. Together we’re creating the future.<br />

3D winners<br />

In a recent giveaway promotion, 3D<br />

Kitchen provided software to Cabinets<br />

by Webb in Wangaratta Victoria.<br />

Unknown to owners, Dean and Blair<br />

Webb their office administrator,<br />

Kimberley Risstrom, had entered<br />

them into the 3D Kitchen software<br />

giveaway promotion. When they were<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntacted and advised that they had<br />

won the software, they were shocked<br />

and skeptical before be<strong>co</strong>ming excited<br />

at the prospect of in<strong>co</strong>rporating 3D<br />

kitchen into their business and taking<br />

advantage of the design and production<br />

features with particular interest in the<br />

time saving they would achieve over<br />

their current business methods.<br />

Dean and Blair had for some years<br />

used a MultiCam CNC machine, but<br />

had not ventured into the realm of<br />

software for automating their design<br />

and production. 3D Kitchen provided<br />

Webbs with its Pro ToolPath version for<br />

automatic linking of design jobs to their<br />

tried and true MultiCam machine. This<br />

was a three day on site process, with<br />

the installation and training being done<br />

personally by Chris Adams (owner of<br />

3D Kitchen) and Rob Wegmann the<br />

3D Kitchen representative for Victoria.<br />

The on site process is essential and<br />

provides for the precise adjusting of<br />

the production software to <strong>co</strong>rrectly<br />

cut, shape and drill panels to exactly<br />

match the requirements of the business<br />

<strong>co</strong>ncerned. At the end of the 3rd day<br />

on site, Webbs were very excited to<br />

see their fi rst job processed directly<br />

from 3D Kitchen to their MultiCam<br />

machine cleanly and accurately - “just<br />

like magic!”<br />

Cabinets by Webb is a high volume<br />

cabinet producer requiring accuracy<br />

and versatility in a software product,<br />

delivered to a high standard by 3D<br />

Kitchen. Webbs have an informative<br />

website (no pun intended) at http://<br />

www.cabinetsbywebb.<strong>co</strong>m.au<br />

3D Kitchen is focused on moving<br />

businesses ahead in large strides towards<br />

higher effi ciency and productivity. Our<br />

best wishes to Dean and Blair, keep that<br />

machine running hot!


Why you need to think about training now<br />

If you have been reading the<br />

papers lately, or listening to the<br />

news, you will realise that New<br />

Zealand is heading for a major<br />

skill shortage ─ particularly in the<br />

<strong>co</strong>nstruction industry. This is due<br />

to a variety of factors, the main<br />

ones being:<br />

• The rebuild needed after the<br />

Christchurch earthquakes<br />

• Weather-tightness related<br />

issues<br />

• Delayed demand for building<br />

and <strong>co</strong>nstruction sector activity<br />

foregone during the recession<br />

• Residual and on-going demand<br />

for building and <strong>co</strong>nstruction<br />

activity.<br />

The level of building <strong>co</strong>nsents<br />

being applied for has dramatically<br />

reduced throughout the recession<br />

but the signs are that it will soon<br />

start to increase again, and in some<br />

areas even exceed previous levels.<br />

Research shows that in the next<br />

few years the equivalent of 40,000<br />

new homes per annum will be<br />

required throughout the <strong>co</strong>untry.<br />

This is due to the:<br />

• 40,000 houses that are a part<br />

of the leaky building spectrum.<br />

Amendments to the legislation<br />

are due to <strong>co</strong>me into play<br />

very soon, and will require<br />

repair <strong>co</strong>sts to be <strong>co</strong>vered by<br />

Government (25%), Local<br />

Bodies (25%) and homeowners<br />

(50%). The majority of these<br />

homes are in Auckland.<br />

• 10,000 Homes in Christchurch<br />

are either demolished or are<br />

about to be.<br />

• 100,000 homes in Christchurch<br />

will require extensive<br />

refurbishment.<br />

• 200,000 homes require<br />

extensive work over the next<br />

fi ve years<br />

Even if 20% of all skilled labour<br />

available at the 2006 Census were<br />

able to be redeployed to address<br />

the Christchurch and weathertightness<br />

challenges, it would take<br />

at least four, and up to six, years<br />

for the rebuilding and remediation<br />

to be <strong>co</strong>mpleted.<br />

As manufacturers, no matter<br />

which part of the <strong>co</strong>untry you<br />

work, the impacts will ripple out.<br />

The problem is so large there is<br />

not one solution.<br />

What is JITO doing?<br />

JITO and BETA ( the <strong>co</strong>nstruction<br />

ITOs), have been meeting<br />

with the Tertiary Education<br />

Commission and the Ministry<br />

of Social Development, who in<br />

turn have been working with the<br />

Prime Minister and Ministers<br />

of Construction, Education and<br />

Finance. These meetings have<br />

resulted in the initiation of a<br />

variety of programmes, including<br />

the $42 million earmarked to help<br />

training for Christchurch. The<br />

detail of this initiative is yet to be<br />

determined.<br />

There is a BETA project that you<br />

will hear about directly from us<br />

about screening and redeploying<br />

people who are currently<br />

unemployed in Christchurch.<br />

There will be remuneration for<br />

those <strong>co</strong>mpanies who register and<br />

sign up one of these people.<br />

We will be working directly with<br />

our industries in Christchurch to<br />

help them take advantage of the<br />

Government training packages.<br />

What can you do?<br />

Work towards retaining your<br />

people in employment. This needs<br />

to be a priority and if that is not<br />

possible, actively keep in touch<br />

with past qualifi ed staff you know<br />

about.<br />

Ensure your supervisors and<br />

managers have been trained to<br />

be capable in their role. If they<br />

have not received training I would<br />

strongly suggest you <strong>co</strong>ntact<br />

your JITO Area Training Advisor<br />

(ATA). Contact details are on the<br />

JITO website www.jito.org.<strong>nz</strong>.<br />

Use this window of opportunity<br />

and ensure all your long term<br />

staff (7yrs in the industry and<br />

over 25) who are not qualified<br />

be<strong>co</strong>me qualifi ed through the RCC<br />

process (Re<strong>co</strong>gnition of Current<br />

Competence). Talk to your ATA<br />

or go to www.jito.org.<strong>nz</strong> for more<br />

information.<br />

Consider your position for starting<br />

a new apprentice sooner. Contact<br />

an ATA to help you recruit the most<br />

suitable person. It is possible to get<br />

their fi rst block <strong>co</strong>urse <strong>co</strong>mpleted<br />

in 2011 whilst business is still<br />

quiet. As you know, bringing on<br />

a new apprentice requires a lead<br />

in time for that person to be of<br />

value to your business. Use your<br />

ATA to help with the recruitment<br />

process.<br />

Be proactive. Underestimating<br />

the magnitude of the issue will<br />

be your loss. If your government<br />

has stood to attention you should<br />

be very interested.<br />

a view from both sides<br />

Tony DeLore<strong>nz</strong>o<br />

When I first moved to<br />

Wellington my first real<br />

job involved setting up a health<br />

and safety policy for a <strong>co</strong>ntainer<br />

shipping yard. Like most<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpanies at that time health and<br />

safety was seen as a huge expense<br />

and time waster. Every <strong>co</strong>ntainer<br />

yard owner was <strong>co</strong>nvinced they<br />

had good practices and looked<br />

after their staff. This whole policy<br />

paper trail did nothing and tied<br />

up valuable staff time. Trying to<br />

change the mindset that came from<br />

the directors themselves was no<br />

easy task.<br />

Practices like a 28 hour shift for<br />

a <strong>co</strong>ntainer loader driver, night<br />

shift fi lling up paint bottles by the<br />

light of cigarette lighters, using<br />

empty thinner drums as ladders<br />

for welding, and no evacuation<br />

plans, were all ingrained. Even<br />

on my fi rst day on a tour of the<br />

yard the director took a short cut<br />

between 2 <strong>co</strong>ntainers, only to say<br />

“don’t do that” when we got to<br />

the other side. Earlier that year<br />

a surveyor in another city was<br />

crushed attempting to get through<br />

before a loader pushed the 2<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntainers together.<br />

Happily with a little persistence<br />

and buy in from the directors<br />

things changed. The yards are<br />

no longer accidents waiting to<br />

happen, health and safety is taken<br />

seriously and the risk of serious<br />

injuries is near to zero.<br />

Sixties rewiring or modern bomb kit.<br />

From the small number of factory<br />

tours I have been on it seems that<br />

our industry is pretty good at<br />

setting up and following policies,<br />

at least for the big stuff. However<br />

it is the small stuff that can trip<br />

you up.<br />

At an NKBA meeting recently I<br />

was told of an incident which I<br />

will have to say is un<strong>co</strong>nfi rmed<br />

and no names were mentioned.<br />

An installer had taken to bringing<br />

a cleaning solvent to a job site in<br />

a pump water bottle. It was always<br />

kept with their tools and everyone<br />

involved with the installation<br />

and at the factory knew that the<br />

bottle did not <strong>co</strong>ntain water, it<br />

also looked a bit grimy and well<br />

used.<br />

On one installation when it was<br />

time to pack up the bottle was<br />

grabbed and put away as usual.<br />

However the wrong bottle was<br />

picked up as the owner of the<br />

house had left a well used pump<br />

bottle in the kitchen. This should<br />

not have been a problem but in the<br />

rush to get to work in the morning<br />

the owner grabbed the bottle<br />

without checking. While driving<br />

he took a swig before registering<br />

the odour. Nasty.<br />

As I said earlier it is the small<br />

things that trip you up. Health and<br />

Safety policies <strong>co</strong>ver the entire<br />

workplace, but there is a tendency<br />

to focus on the really big things.<br />

No one would let someone drive<br />

a forklift drunk, but putting a<br />

poisonous liquid in a drink bottle<br />

is such a small thing and well,<br />

what are the chances.<br />

The biggest thing I learnt doing<br />

health and safety was that people<br />

only do things if they are easy, so<br />

make things as easy as possible.<br />

If high viz vests are needed make<br />

sure you get more than are needed<br />

and put them where they are<br />

easily grabbed. Put ear plugs<br />

everywhere on the workshop<br />

fl oor, and buy the right bottles and<br />

labels for storing and transporting<br />

dangerous goods.<br />

It may <strong>co</strong>st a little but it is worth it<br />

when you see what <strong>co</strong>uld happen<br />

to someone’s life.<br />

The Ranfurly Challenge<br />

- Our Own Personal Project<br />

The Electrics<br />

You would think a 110 year old<br />

house would have some mod<br />

<strong>co</strong>ns? Well it did <strong>co</strong>me with a<br />

UHF aerial, but that is now useless<br />

as they have turned off terrestrial<br />

TV.<br />

We did have electricity. The fi rst<br />

job was to get it dis<strong>co</strong>nnected<br />

so we <strong>co</strong>uld jack the house up.<br />

Easy. The following month we<br />

received a power bill for over<br />

$800 which was our estimated<br />

use over the period the house was<br />

suspended 5 feet above the ground<br />

with the power cable physically<br />

dis<strong>co</strong>nnected from the building.<br />

The reason it was an estimate<br />

was the meter reader did not have<br />

a ladder to get in the front door to<br />

read the meter!<br />

Our electrician did a quick check<br />

and said the house had been<br />

rewired sometime in the sixties,<br />

but as it was an old house there<br />

were limited power points. Most<br />

rooms only had 1 but strangely 2<br />

rooms had none whatsoever.<br />

Luckily as the house was suspended<br />

in the air it was easy for the sparkie<br />

to walk under the fl oor and wire<br />

up through the fl oor for all the<br />

power points that we needed. The<br />

lathe and plaster wall <strong>co</strong>nstruction<br />

was a bit of a challenge for fi xing<br />

the sockets to and so he came up<br />

with an innovative time saving<br />

solution. He left them hanging out<br />

of the wall.<br />

When one of the bedroom lights<br />

blew we noticed that the wire<br />

was the old fabric <strong>co</strong>vered type<br />

that needed replacing. While in<br />

the ceiling space fi xing this up<br />

the truth of the rewiring became<br />

apparent. All the wires <strong>co</strong>ming<br />

from the fusebox were replace<br />

in the 1960’s but they only went<br />

half a meter into the ceiling and<br />

were then spliced into the old<br />

wires. These old wires with rotten<br />

insulation ran through metal<br />

<strong>co</strong>njugate to all the old lights and<br />

switches. It was incredible that the<br />

attic space was not ‘live’.<br />

Due to the small number of original<br />

electrical points in the house it was<br />

a quick and inexpensive rewire<br />

and only resulted in minor damage<br />

to our bed. Long story ... perhaps<br />

next time.<br />

Due Process<br />

Geoff Hardy<br />

Dark days and dirty deeds<br />

It usually takes a recession like the 2008-<br />

10 global meltdown to expose the worst<br />

<strong>co</strong>rporate abuses. We mostly associate this<br />

particular recession with the <strong>co</strong>llapse of the<br />

fi nance <strong>co</strong>mpanies and the loss of investment<br />

savings that went with it. Many of those<br />

<strong>co</strong>llapses were merely due to foreseeable<br />

risks <strong>co</strong>ming to fruition, and their owners and<br />

managers have been unfairly maligned. But<br />

in the more blatant of cases, the owners and<br />

managers either misled and deceived investors<br />

from the outset, or eventually diverted public<br />

funds into their own private projects without<br />

authority. The Financial Markets Authority is<br />

thankfully pursuing the worst excesses and<br />

bringing the perpetrators to justice.<br />

However, bad behaviour is not <strong>co</strong>nfi ned to<br />

those who have public money at their disposal.<br />

Recessions also test the ethics and morality of<br />

owners and managers of smaller, privatelyfunded<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpanies. The problem is that they<br />

be<strong>co</strong>me accustomed to a certain privileged<br />

lifestyle, and are extremely reluctant to give it<br />

up despite the dramatic decrease in profi tability<br />

of their <strong>co</strong>mpanies. There simply isn’t enough<br />

money to go around, and since they don’t want<br />

to reduce their share, someone else’s share<br />

has to reduce. In a <strong>co</strong>mpany-run business,<br />

there are only two suitable candidates to<br />

force this involuntary sacrifi ce upon. One is<br />

the <strong>co</strong>mpany’s creditors, and the other is its<br />

shareholders.<br />

Ripping off your creditors can be done in a<br />

variety of ways. The least sophisticated method<br />

is simply to suspend payments to all creditors<br />

(except the ones you really need to do business<br />

with), buy more time with a host of excuses,<br />

put up as many obstacles as you can in front of<br />

anyone who attempts to re<strong>co</strong>ver their debt from<br />

you, and pay only those who really put the heat<br />

on you, at the <strong>co</strong>urtroom door. At the other end<br />

of the scale are the sophisticated schemes that<br />

are intended to leave your creditors picking<br />

over the carcass while you escape with the loot.<br />

A typical example of this is the old phoenix<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpany scam.<br />

Phoenix <strong>co</strong>mpany schemes work like this. The<br />

shareholder/directors of <strong>co</strong>mpany ABC Ltd<br />

decide to shed themselves of their creditors.<br />

They form another <strong>co</strong>mpany XYZ Ltd. They<br />

then change the name of ABC Ltd to LMN Ltd,<br />

and at the same time change XYZ’s name to<br />

ABC. This is done in secret, dis<strong>co</strong>verable only<br />

by those who search the Companies Offi ce<br />

register, and happen to notice that the names<br />

of the <strong>co</strong>mpanies have changed. All other<br />

details such as registered offi ce, directors and<br />

shareholders remain the same, deliberately<br />

so.<br />

The shareholder/directors then fi nd a friendly<br />

liquidator. They negotiate in advance for the<br />

payment of the liquidator’s fees and for the<br />

purchase by the new ABC Ltd of the old ABC<br />

Ltd’s <strong>co</strong>re trading assets at a fi re sale price.<br />

They then put the old ABC Ltd (now named<br />

LMN Ltd) into voluntary liquidation, leaving<br />

its creditors with nothing but a claim against<br />

the net proceeds of the sale of the <strong>co</strong>re trading<br />

assets, which are often paid in instalments<br />

by the director/shareholders over a lengthy<br />

period.<br />

Very few people, particularly ABC Ltd’s<br />

ongoing customers, are any the wiser. That is<br />

the whole idea. Everyone except the creditors<br />

who have been left in the lurch, think that<br />

ABC Ltd is exactly the same entity that they<br />

traded with in the past, blissfully unaware that<br />

the director/shareholders are not exactly as<br />

creditworthy as they appear.<br />

An alternative to ripping off your creditors<br />

is ripping off your fellow shareholders.<br />

Shareholders are entitled to all the surplus<br />

profi ts of the <strong>co</strong>mpany after the creditors have<br />

been paid. Majority shareholders who <strong>co</strong>ntrol<br />

the <strong>co</strong>mpany can simply cut off the in<strong>co</strong>me<br />

stream to the minority shareholders by paying<br />

themselves excessive salaries, making overpriced<br />

investments in personal projects, and<br />

building up reserves rather than paying out<br />

dividends.<br />

The minority are then effectively shut out<br />

of active participation in the <strong>co</strong>mpany.<br />

Shareholders’ and directors’ meetings are<br />

dispensed with, as are all of the formalities<br />

prescribed by the Companies Act except<br />

for those that are inescapable, and the fl ow<br />

of information to the minority shareholders<br />

dries up.<br />

At the more blatant end of the scale are scams<br />

such as the old “hive-down”. This is intended<br />

to defeat selected creditors and shareholders<br />

alike. Essentially, those in <strong>co</strong>ntrol of the<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpany simply transfer its business and assets<br />

to another <strong>co</strong>mpany that they own. Although<br />

this can be done legitimately, the “just do it”<br />

brigade never bother to observe the proper<br />

formalities. They either take the assets and pay<br />

nothing back to the original <strong>co</strong>mpany in return,<br />

or they get some bogus back-of-the-envelope<br />

valuation done to justify paying what is in<br />

reality a massive undervalue for the assets they<br />

have acquired.<br />

But it’s not all bad news for the creditors and<br />

shareholders who have been left out in the<br />

<strong>co</strong>ld. There is a host of remedies available<br />

to them and forms of leverage they can use<br />

against the <strong>co</strong>rporate bullies. For example,<br />

promoters of phoenix <strong>co</strong>mpany schemes can<br />

now be made personally liable for the unpaid<br />

debts. And majority shareholders can be held<br />

to ac<strong>co</strong>unt for breaches of their statutory duties<br />

or unfairly prejudicial <strong>co</strong>nduct against minority<br />

shareholders. So if you are in that situation,<br />

don’t despair. You don’t have to take it lying<br />

down.<br />

voice search<br />

Google voice search is an interesting<br />

new Google innovation that enables<br />

you to do a Google search by<br />

speaking the words.<br />

To use it you will need a microphone<br />

and the Google Chrome browser (it<br />

can be downloaded from www.<br />

google.<strong>co</strong>m/chrome if you don’t<br />

already have it). Open the browser<br />

and enter http://www.2lingual.<strong>co</strong>m/<br />

To do a voice search, select your<br />

language, click on the microphone,<br />

and speak. You may need to adjust<br />

the microphone settings for voice<br />

search to re<strong>co</strong>gnise your words and<br />

may need to adjust your volume<br />

Speak clearly. The results will show<br />

your words in the search box and<br />

also ask you “did you say any of the<br />

following?” in case it misheard.<br />

Like any voice activated programme<br />

it’s not perfect – but it’s not too bad.<br />

I tested it by searching for a variety<br />

CNC Spiral Cutters<br />

Prowood now imports<br />

its own range of CNC<br />

Spiral cutters for nesting<br />

based manufacturers.<br />

These cutters are made<br />

in the USA by OEM<br />

(Overseas Equipment<br />

Manufacturer) thus we<br />

use our own branding of<br />

WOODMAX.<br />

By buying from a reliable manufacturer<br />

with out their label we are able to<br />

purchase the tooling cheaper and pass<br />

to you the customer a cheaper price.<br />

We do not make claims that the tools<br />

are better than others other than the<br />

performance should be similar but the<br />

pricing should be cheaper. These are<br />

solid carbide tools not cheap carbide<br />

tools welded to steel bodies.<br />

<strong>co</strong>mpact lightweight powerful<br />

Festool is expanding its range of <strong>co</strong>rdless drills with the new CXS. The <strong>co</strong>mpact 10.8<br />

volt drill impresses with its lightweight design weighing just 900 grams and is extremely<br />

powerful, has two gears and is well-balanced for optimal power transfer - also ideal for<br />

all areas that are hard to access.<br />

The pleasant effortlessness of its <strong>co</strong>mpact design and balanced weight distribution is<br />

immediately noticeable, as is the power that the new 10.8 volt CXS delivers when used<br />

for drilling and boring. Great for hard-to-access places, overhead work and anywhere<br />

where it is particularly narrow and hard to access. The high-performance lithium-ion<br />

battery packs represent real value in terms of endurance, with up to 340 chipboard screws<br />

(4x40 millimeters) from just one battery charge. And the 12-phase torque adjustment<br />

allows the power to be transferred to the respective work either by fi ne metering or<br />

<strong>co</strong>ntrolled metering. Festool manufactures its new CXS <strong>co</strong>rdless drills in Germany<br />

and offers a three-year guarantee on the <strong>co</strong>rdless drill, battery pack and charger of its<br />

battery-operated units.<br />

High technology for all types of machining<br />

As part of the SCM Groups ongoing research and development process, the very<br />

successful Pratix range of CNC machining centres has been redeveloped to give us<br />

the Pratix Z2.<br />

Customization and fl exibility thanks to the wide choice of optional devices and<br />

equipment presettings, with high performance multifunction aluminium work table,<br />

pendulum machining, drill units with 18 to 26 drills, electro spindles with 10 or 15hp,<br />

C axis, dedicated horizontal routing units or 0-90 saw unit, tool changer with up to 18<br />

positions and a working <strong>co</strong>mponent passage of 180mm.<br />

Performance/Overall Dimensions Ratio thanks to the technical solutions such as the<br />

bumpers safety protection and the electric cabinet intergraded inside the machine<br />

base.<br />

As standard the SCM range of CNC machining centres are fi tted with HSK 63 tool<br />

<strong>co</strong>upling technology, this gives you absolute positioning accuracy, the highest degree<br />

of rigidity and the ability to run at faster speeds and feed rates while achieving a better<br />

fi nished product. The HSK tool holders can be interchanged between the SCM range<br />

of CNC spindle moulders, allowing for a dramatic reduction in set-ups over multiple<br />

machines in your workshop.<br />

The SCM Pratix Z2 is now the ideal solution for solid timber and nesting based<br />

manufacturing without <strong>co</strong>mpromise.<br />

BMW ORACLE Racing select CMS machining centres<br />

CMS Industries is very proud to announce its<br />

sponsorship <strong>co</strong>llaboration as Offi cial Supplier<br />

of BMW ORACLE Racing, a relationship<br />

which began in 2008 with the supply of a<br />

CNC machining centre for the manufacture of<br />

<strong>co</strong>mposite-material boat parts, an important<br />

tool in the high-tech carbon fi bre <strong>co</strong>nstruction<br />

of racing yachts.<br />

The association with BMW ORACLE Racing<br />

has enhanced CMS’s leading role in the racing<br />

field. The number of racing vehicles with<br />

<strong>co</strong>mposite parts being machined on CMS<br />

machining centres is steadily increasing with<br />

the <strong>co</strong>mpany’s growing presence in sports<br />

applications from racing bicycles to F1 car<br />

<strong>co</strong>mponents.<br />

Giulio Gasparini, CMS Area Manager, said<br />

“Our machine’s technical features, the price<br />

/ performance ratio but also CMS <strong>co</strong>mpany’s<br />

soundness and reputation in the machining<br />

of <strong>co</strong>mposite materials, especially in racing<br />

applications, have been the key factors enabling<br />

CMS to win their <strong>co</strong>mpetition with other<br />

suppliers. CMS stands by BMW ORACLE<br />

Racing ready to provide their products and<br />

support in order to win together.”<br />

JOINERS Magazine June 2011 page 86<br />

Tim Smyth, the <strong>co</strong>-<strong>co</strong>nstruction manager of<br />

BMW ORACLE Racing, explains why the<br />

team has chosen the CMS machine: “Americas<br />

Cup Yachts employ the latest technology in<br />

materials and <strong>co</strong>nstruction processes. CNC<br />

produced tools and fi nished parts are one of the<br />

most signifi cant advances in Yacht <strong>co</strong>nstruction<br />

over the past decade and they now play a<br />

crucial role in our build program. To produce<br />

these <strong>co</strong>mponents quickly and to preserve our<br />

design innovations it is important to posses<br />

your own CNC machines. We have used CMS<br />

machines extensively throughout the past<br />

two editions of the Americas Cup through the<br />

services of sub<strong>co</strong>ntractors, and based on their<br />

performance we choose CMS to supply our<br />

fi rst machine in 2009.”<br />

<br />

BMW Oracle Racing<br />

Founded in 2000 by American Larry Ellison, the<br />

professional sailing team’s main focus is to win the<br />

America’s Cup. BMW ORACLE Racing represents<br />

the Golden Gate Yacht Club of San Francis<strong>co</strong> and<br />

is based in Valencia, Spain. The team’s <strong>co</strong>mposite<br />

boat <strong>co</strong>nstruction expertise is also available for<br />

non-team projects through Oracle Racing Ltd in<br />

Warkworth, NZ.<br />

Poseidon machining centre from CMS. Oracle Racing<br />

Ltd based in Warkworth just north of Auckland is<br />

<strong>co</strong>mmissioning one with an X-axis of 6 metres a Yaxis<br />

of 18 metres and a Z-axis of 3 metres.<br />
