Kitchen Manufacturers tell their stories.

Real life stories about how Nested Based Manufacturing has change the way business do business and how they have achieved exceptional results in productivity and profitability.

Company Name:
Fine Detail Joinery

NBM Software:
KitchenCAD

Machine Type:
Multicam SR3618v
Fine Detail Joinery is a modest business run by Anthony Teuma. In August last year he purchased his first Multicam CNC Routing machine. When asked about the decision to move in to CNC machining Anthony explained "We don't have a large staff here so in order to remain competitive with the big guys we have to be efficient and flexible. We also need to be responsive to an ever demanding market. I started looking at CNC machinery as a way of increasing the productivity and profitability of the business without having to increase staff. In short I wanted to make better use of my existing resources and at the same time have the ability to ramp up production as required." Anthony adds "I contacted Multicam and looked at their range of CNC machines. In the end I decided on a 12'x6' machine because of the added flexibility the large process area offers. I also knew that a vacuum hold down bed and automatic tool changer were essential in order to get the best possible production cycles. Multicam even supplied us with software that allows us to create Kitchen and carcass components, nest the parts on a sheet of material and send them to the machine for cutting quickly and efficiently. Getting all this from the one supplier is an added bonus and, because service and support are not an issue, I can concentrate my efforts on growing my business."
Company Name:
Crafty Kabinets

NBM Software:
KitchenCAD

Machine Type:
Multicam SR2418v
Earlier this year Crafty Kabinets took delivery of a Multicam CNC Routing machine with 8'x6' process area, vacuum hold down bed and travelling rotary tool changer. "The decision to purchase the Multicam machine was made after a lot of research." says Chris Kokkoris, owner of Crafty Kabinets. "The investment in Nested Based Manufacturing is a significant one and I wanted to be sure that we got the best return on our investment in terms of reliability, flexibility and ease-of-use." He continued by saying "The build quality of the Multicam is obvious. Its solid construction means that it will be able to withstand the day-to-day demands of production for a long time to come. We find it very simple and safe to operate and the inclusion of the KitchenCAD software supplied by Multicam meant that we got a complete NBM system for minimum cost."
Company Name:
Cummins Joinery

NBM Software:
Cabinet Vision

Machine Type:
Multicam SR2418v
Geoff Cummins, Managing Director of Cummins Joinery and General Manager, Steve Wicks openly state that purchasing the Multicam SR2418v CNC routing machine has led to a significant growth in business. "What we found was that we can turn around jobs much more quickly than we were able to in the past." says Geoff. "Because of this we have been able to expand the business into other areas, such as contract cutting. Prior to owning the Multicam this is something that we would never have been able to contemplate." Geoff adds "This of course means that the business is made more profitable as it becomes more diversified. We can now offer a wider range of services and increase our customer base." Steve admits that there was a certain scepticism concerning the move to Nested Based Manufacturing. "As a cabinet builder I had to be convinced that what I saw on the computer screen was going to be cut as I wanted. Once the first couple of jobs came off the machine I could quickly see how this was so much better than building cabinets the old way. The process of Kitchen building is so integrated and streamlined that the whole factory runs much more efficiently as a direct result."
 Company Name:
 Murphy & Langfield Joinery

 NBM Software:
 Cabinet Builder

 Machine Type:
 Multicam SR2418v
"Even though we have only had our Multicam machine and Cabinet Builder software for a little while we are already seeing significant increases in productivity and profitability." states Phil Murphy who, together with his wife Donna have been running Murphy and Langfield for the last 11 years. "We have all the machinery traditionally associated with kitchen manufacture, but this is our first CNC machine. We have been truly impressed by the advanced features of the Multicam machine and the level of automation that can be achieved. The Automatic Tool Changer and 8'x4' vacuum bed make even the most complex job easy to accomplish." Phil was asked about his decision to get in to NBM. "Initially we were nervous about getting in to NBM so we spent a lot of time researching machines and software. The obvious expertise of the guys at Multicam in Mt Waverley made us feel confident that the Multicam machine was the way to go." Phil continues by adding "I have to admit that we were bewildered by the range of software that there is available. Most of it appeared far too complicated and I could see that it was going be tough to get to a point where I felt I had mastered it. In the end I was sold on a program called Cabinet Builder. It integrates perfectly with the Multicam machine, is very simple to use and yet has all the features. The combination is perfect for us ." Phil attributes his increase in business to the installation of the Multicam machine. "The increased throughput generated by the machine has meant that we can actually create more kitchens with the same number of employees in the same time as we were previously able to."
