Christopher Manclière, senior software specialist at Planit Canada and Dennis Barg, shared software and machining insights.
Planit Canada delivered the first in a series of Canada-wide, Real-World Training Events at the new SCM Technology Center in Port Coquitlam, B.C.
Attendees were Cabinet Vision users or those considering it, SCM machine owners and those looking to invest.
Christopher Manclière, senior software specialist at Planit Canada and Dennis Barg, a long-time Planit Canada technical consultant, shared software and machining insights gathered over their combined more than twenty-five years of experience in manufacturing kitchen cabinets.
“These are two of our most experienced techs, who’ve been in hundreds of shops, helping to resolve issues and seeing how people do things,” said Peter Mate, Planit Canada President
‘This wasn’t about teaching people how to draw kitchens; this was about demonstrating what manufacturing gains could be achieved using Cabinet Vision and SCM’s cutting-edge machines.”
Topics covered included pros and cons of common assembly methods, how to take advantage of screen-to-machine for nesting, tooling tips to improve machining, designing and cutting MDF shaker doors, how to prevent small parts from moving on a nested sheet during the cutting process and how to automate the process of redoing broken or missing parts.
Presentations were divided between classroom-style instruction and demonstrations on live machines.
“It is the best way to learn, and I enjoyed the group scenarios to problem solve,” said one of the participants.
The second event, for which there is already a waiting list, will be held in French at Castaly Canada Inc. in Granby, Que. on March 20.
