Colonial Saw Debuts the Connector of the Future

KINGSTON, MA, 5.16.2017 - Tuesday, May 16 will see the widely anticipated worldwide debut of Cabineo, an innovative and time-saving one-piece RTA cabinet connector. Cabineo was developed by Lamello AG of Bubendorf, Switzerland, the pioneering wood joining company. Colonial Saw is the exclusive U.S. importer for Lamello and will be showcasing Cabineo in the U.S. at AWFS, woodworking's largest tradeshow of the year in Las Vegas.

"Cabineo's unique design requires significantly fewer processes and eliminates the chance for errors during assembly," said Dave Rakauskas, Vice President of Colonial Saw. "In comparison with the standard cam and dowel fitting, Cabineo delivers more efficient production, faster installation, stronger connections and a higher clamping force. There is no more need for edge drilling or wooden dowels."

The concept behind Cabineo was to use a minimal amount of resources for a maximum of functionality, offering considerable advantages throughout the entire process. Cabineo is inserted into a surface-only routed shape on the cabinet components during production or at the final destination. When factory-installed, they are easily flat-packed for transport, and end-users don't need to install loose fittings. Cabineo can be used with all kinds of CNC machines, including very simple 3-axis and nested-based machines.

Installers can then singlehandedly install the finished product with just a cordless drill in seconds. Optional, aesthetic cover caps are also available in a variety of colors. Product testers report drastically reduced setup time and absolutely zero mistakes during assembly.

"We share Lamello’s commitment to innovation and we're excited to bring Cabineo to the AWFS Show," Rakauskas said. "With time-savings built in to production, transportation and assembly, we expect it will be a huge hit."

To see Cabineo in action, AWFS attendees should stop by Booth #9211. More information can be found at
