A new innovation has been introduced to the furniture manufacturing world. The WoodTouch project in Spain is an entirely new concept in touch interaction with furniture and wood surfaces, according to BasqueResearch.com.
Technalia, along with Grumal, Nueva Linea, Elson Electronica and Ekoleds, has developed an intuitive, intelligent control system that uses the warm feel of wood. You can light a room, turn on the heating or regulate the intensity of various electrical devices connected to the main power system, without the need to press a button. So far, these companies are the first to use this technology and put it on the market.
Furniture with this technology comes in an assortment of finishes and designs. The project meets the growing demand for a simple way of dealing with household electrical devices. With all the technology out there that’s intended to make our lives easier, it only makes sense that the furniture industry would partake in the effort.
Realizing the dream of being able to economically build custom furniture on a mass scale.
CNC router manufacturer Thermwood set up a furniture-making operation in its own plant to test its cell manufacturing techniques.
This year's NeoCon was an affirming experience.
Q: We are having a problem with shrinkage. We make furniture, but someone else sells and delivers it. This person claims he did everything correctly, including opening the furniture wrapping (we wrapped the furniture with shrink-wrap and it was fairly well sealed) and letting it acclimate to the house climate. When the customer moved in, they said the furniture looked really wonderful, but within a week, it started to warp, open joints and crack in a few places. We are so careful to keep our plant at 40 percent RH and check the MC of the lumber. This is frustrating! Can you help?
Lean manufacturing helps furniture maker expand quickly.
