Hüttenhölscher Maschinenbau have already developed various kinds of drawer assembly lines for different types of metal sides.
These assembly systems are flexible part and/or complete solutions for the automated assembly of different sized back and side panels as well as for drawer fronts. Due to the automated width and depth adjustment, the processing of drawers with a batch-size of one is possible.
Assembly lines for drawers from various manufacturers, such as Hettich, Blum, and Grass are in use. Apart from the direct assembly unit, the machine also contains the loading and the supply of the various frame elements through to feeding gantries and storage for the different shelves.
Parallel to the assembly of the drawers, the fronts are drilled and the appropriate fittings are inserted. The drawers and the fronts are joined together in the front assembly station. This can be done either manually at a working place or automated by means of robotic application.
