Cabinet Vision “costs money, but saves a lot more,” says bespoke carcass pioneer

Turin Components - Ireland

A company which pioneered both bespoke carcasses and nesting in the Irish Republic says the Cabinet Vision software which designs their products and drives their two CNC nesters, beam saw and boring machine, means they can produce exactly what customers want, and it saves on waste.

Donal Walshe saw an opening in the Irish furniture market for bespoke carcasses in 2008, and established Turin Components to begin manufacturing them. “At the time there were a lot of imported carcasses, but we were the first to manufacture curved units of any shape and size that the customer required.

And having seen how efficient nesting could be on a visit to a company in England, he decided to focus on nesting as the most cost effective way of cutting MFC and MDF carcasses for kitchens, bedrooms, offices, bathrooms and student accommodation. The company also produces hospital cabinets manufactured in the revolutionary waterproof and anti-bacterial material, Sealwise. 

Cabinet-Vision-Screen-to-Machine-moduleToday they have two Andi nesters programmed by Cabinet Vision’s Screen-To-Machine module, and are considering investing in a third next year. Padraig Mullin is Project Manager and programmer for the nesting process. “I input every job into Cabinet Vision, and finalise the design, and type and colour of material, along with drawers and hinges. I have a database of existing units in the Cabinet Vision library, and it’s so easy to manipulate one of those to come up with what the customer requires. If I move a shelf, Cabinet Vision automatically moves the shelf studs…if I change a door size it moves all the assolciated fixtures and fittings. For instance, if it’s a base unit I simply edit the size, depth and height, and then optimise it in Screen-To-Machine and send the NC code to whichever Andi has been assigned to the job.”
