Irvine, CA, June 09, 2017 –(– Lockdowel and Laguna Tools are teaming together for a hands-on productivity workshop for carpenters, cabinet makers and furniture makers July 6 and 7, 2017, at the Laguna Tools headquarters – 2072 Alton Parkway in Irvine, California. Participants will see how using Lockdowel Eclips fasteners eliminates the need for glue and case clamps and significantly increases assembly productivity. Laguna Tools will preview their new SmartShop LD4 automatic drilling and Lockdowel fastener insertion machine.

"Our customers have experienced a great ROI with the Smartshop LD4 and Lockdowel Eclips system,” Torben Helshoj, President of Laguna Tools says. “Innovation is at the heart of what we provide, and this is revolutionizing the manufacturing process with its easy to use and simple assembly process. It pays for itself in the first two years with cost reduction, waste elimination and much more."

“Now we have the data to show cabinet makers that by switching to the Lockdowel assembly method they can increase production three-fold,” President and Co-founder Bryan Koelling says. “Cabinet makers using Lockdowel tell us they can reduce staff from eight or nine technicians to three technicians, and eliminate glue and case clamps by switching to Lockdowel Eclips fasteners. They save two thirds of the cost of labor!”

In addition, selling cabinets and ready-to-assemble (RTA) furniture with Lockdowel fastening reduces customer assembly time by 70% compared to traditional screw assembly methods. Katrina Espinoza, The Original ScrapboxTM International Marketing Director explains, “Previous assembly times of our best-selling cabinet, The WorkBox, were eight to ten hours with two people. Now with our most advanced design, Lockdowel brings our assembly time down to two or three hours with two people!”

Both repeated days of the workshop will be divided into four-hour sessions where company representatives will show how to speed up manufacturing and assembly and significantly reduce labor costs with the glue-less, tool‐less Lockdowel Lean Manufacturing Process, and Laguna Tools’ new SmartShop LD4 automatic drilling and Lockdowel fastener insertion machine.

“These will be hands‐on sessions where participants will learn how to create a lean manufacturing production environment that saves significant time and money,” Koelling says.
