The Lamello name is synonymous with connection solutions. This was once again impressively demonstrated at this year's LIGNA. Products for the quick and easy attachment of plates, connection solutions for furniture making and our wide range of portable tools were presented at the Lamello booth. The innovative Lamello connection solutions were also ever-present at our CNC partners' booths. We took the opportunity at LIGNA to talk with them and ask them about their experiences with Lamello:
Vera Katharina Zimmermann –
Manager Product Management
"We were delighted to have presented a CNC machine – the CENTATEQ N-600 – at this year's LIGNA, which automatically press-fits the CABINEO connector without any manual intervention. We are therefore the first provider to offer a unit for automatic connector placement on nesting machines. The triple drill hole is inserted in a unique stroke with the unit from Benz, the MULTI V3 CABINEO, and pressed into the support plate fully automatically using the CNC machine. A robot handles the transport of the finished pieces at the outlet.
For our customers, the focus is on the manufacturing process. With the new CENTATEQ N-600, we are responding to this process focus and offering the end user an effective complete solution. This is just one of many innovations that we have developed in cooperation with Lamello, partly due to the growing number of our customers who use Lamello connection solutions.
Homag has been a driving force behind automation in the wood industry for many years now, and partnerships like these increase the value of our product line, bringing substantial added value for our customers."

"Developing a partnership with Lamello is important to us. Our goal is to connect the entire wood industry and create an ecosystem especially for the wood-processing industry. Tapio can be seen as a digital workshop that's open around the clock. We wish to work with forward-looking companies that understand the importance of these networks and, together, bring new business models to the market. We believe that Lamello is a perfect fit for us and that we can benefit from the experience and commitment."
Johannes Ganner –
«We have been manufacturing woodworking machines since 1956 and during this time the way as the industry works has changed. Today, machine manufacturers are also guided by the development of modern connection systems. Our experience shows us that we need to work with the best companies in the industry to be and stay at the top, and for us Lamello is one of them.
Many of our machines can process Lamello connectors easy, fast and professional – at the craft sector and the industry. Our boring and hardware insertion machine BASICA VARIABEL is the universal drilling machine for the CABINEO with which also the 5-mm-counterbores can be easily drilled and the EXPRESS RTA can drill and insert 2 pieces of CABINEO in approx. 5 seconds. At our CNC machines, applies the motto > ONE-4-ALL <, the complete P-SYSTEM and the CABINEO can be processed on the PROTEC (CNC through-feed machining center) incl. the complete furniture production, with the INDEX (CNC machining center for doweling) capacity bottlenecks at the existing CNC and nesting machines can be avoidance and the quantity of parts can be increased per shift.»
Stefan Benkart –
RVM Product Specialist, CNC
"With our NEXTEC CNC machine models, we intend to show visitors how versatile our products are when used with Lamello connection solutions. At our booth, we show live demonstrations of the NEXTEX 7735, which handles the work for Cabineo as well as all P-System connectors. Holzher offers fully digitised products, providing time savings throughout the entire manufacturing process. For instance, our software automatically calculates how many Lamello connectors are required for a specific application."
Giorgio Galimberti –
Business Product Manager Drilling
"All Biesse machines are predestined for use with Lamello joining elements, due to the great interest in Lamello's product range. We offer complete flexibility throughout our product range, giving us the ability to create solutions that are compatible with one or more Lamello connectors. A nice example of this flexibility is the CNC machine BREMA VECTOR, which can be adjusted to automatically install CABINEO as well as CLAMEX connectors. These machines can insert a connector every three seconds, making them incredibly efficient. It's precisely this flexibility and innovation that makes Lamello an ideal partner for us."
Armin Brucic –
"We want to work together with Lamello because our customers want to work with Lamello. The Lamello product range is highly present in the industry and the brand has established itself as a market leader. Our aim is to fulfil the needs of our customers, however big or small. That's why we have developed new software solutions and fully intuitive macros especially designed for work with the CNC connectors by Lamello. At Felder, we not only focus on Industry 4.0 and large series production. We have also introduced Craft 4.0 for smaller manufacturers and offer solutions aimed at smaller companies. By cooperating with experienced companies like Lamello, we are able to combine our experience in the industry and offer a broader range of solutions for furniture manufacturers and the construction industry."
