Nearly 200 industry professionals turned out in July to learn about shop automation processes at seminars hosted by Cabinet Vision. The events took place at Utah-based production facilities Trim Art in Kaysville on July 19 and Lewis Cabinet Specialties in Tremonton the following day.
Cabinet Vision, along with partners Allmoxy, Lockdowel, Advanced Machinery Systems and Stiles Machinery, demonstrated how to automate multiple facets of the manufacturing process in a series of presentations.
“I was surprised at how excited the older, longtime woodworkers are about new technology. People I know to have previously criticized technology are now enthusiastic and excited to implement it into their businesses,” Brady Lewis, founder and CEO of Allmoxy, said afterwards. “I think people are finally seeing the application in their business partly because they’re seeing the same technologies used with great success all around them in their personal lives.”
The event included tours of the Lewis Cabinets and Trim Art production sites, where attendees could see best practices in action.
“I was pleased to see the next generation of managers embrace technology that will allow them to grow without necessarily building new buildings to do so,” Lockdowel CEO Stephen MacDonald says.
