Lamello P-System

The time-saving joining system with form-locking anchoring.

The P-System, Lamello's continuously evolving wood connector innovation, is lauded by building professionals worldwide as a revolutionary connecting solution that creates fast, permanent connections in a variety of building materials, including solid wood, plywood, MDF, particleboard, plastics, solid surfaces, and more.

Machined by the Zeta P2 profile biscuit joiner, Zeta P2 cordless, and CNC router systems, the P-System is best recognized for fabricating strong, precise, invisible, fast connections for various on and off-site application needs.


P-System Biscuit Joiners

P-System Installation

The Lamello Zeta P2 and Zeta P2 cordless biscuit joiners are Swiss-crafted for superior quality and precision, and their integrated vertical mechanical drive makes them unlike any other biscuit joiner available. 

As the centerpiece of the Lamello P-System, the Zeta P2 makes machining grooves for connectors fast and easy, even at varying installation depths, using a quick-turn dial.

With its arsenal of connectors, the Zeta P2 makes connections at nearly all angles, at the shop or on the job site, easy and exact.

"It saves so much time, which is huge. This isn't an inexpensive tool, but I guarantee you it will pay for itself if you use it. When I first saw it, I thought, "What wizardry is this?" Whoever thought to have the blade dither like that is up there with the guy who invented zip ties."
