The machine saves time, reduces waste and eliminates non-value-added labor and screw-handling motion trauma for high-production cabinet joinery, according to the company.

“By using our patented Screw-in-Pocket (SIP) technology CSI-1.5 cuts Castle’s distinctive screw pocket, drills a low angle pilot hole and inserts a screw below flush in 1.5 seconds,” the company said in a statement.

“The screw placement allows for material stacking without marring adjacent material during transfer. The fit of the screw in the pocket assures it will stay put during transportation. CSI-1.5 seamlessly integrates into operations utilizing One-Piece Flow manufacturing practices. CSI-1.5 provides faster machining and faster production time by eliminating screw handling at assembly.”
