What is Industry 4.0?

The term's Industry 4.0 and or The Internet of Things (IoT) are often used today. In basic terms it describes the access of real time data across your process, from website hit to completed and shipped product. The woodworking machinery industry often describes machine monitoring as Industry 4.0 - we believe it is much more than that. We too have the machine monitoring, we have the APP for your phone that can tell you when your machine needs something, but more importantly we can help with the Website order to completed product shipment. Let's talk if you find this interesting.

Why finger jointing?

Found money is the biggest reason. It is common for a producer of wood products to either throw away or grind up the cut off's they produce during normal manufacturing. If you have enough of this "waste" it becomes really expensive to dispose of it. Maybe it could be re-purposed through an efficient method that allows you to recapture the disposal cost and turn it into something useful or sale-able. For example hardwood cutoff's could be used for lineal moulding or interior furniture components, maybe 2" x 4" cutoffs could be made into non-load bearing interior wall material? The possibilities are endless.
