NZJMF presidents comment on training apprentices p. 83 JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 3


from the president

Hello & thanks to all

F

irstly, thanks for the encouragement and support in becoming NZJMF President. I’d like to acknowledge the work of those who have been before, especially Anthony Neustroski for the change he has championed. I’m proud to hold this position and am looking forward to my tenure and the opportunities ahead to work with the regional presidents and advisory to promote and advance our industry.

Master Joiners is the brand of the NZ Joinery Manufacturers Federation (NZJMF). We are an association of membership and a voice for the joinery industry. The Master Joiners brand is something we stand by. It sends a message to the public that we know our stuff. The executive has pulled together the things that we do as Master Joiners to better define our professional practises, the result of which is a Code of Ethics and Standards. This will be something that as Master Joiner members we can use to give the public confidence and help them feel positive about engaging a Master Joiner. The recent Industry Conference in Invercargill was very well supported, in fact it was the biggest yet. It was a great opportunity to connect with peers not just regionally but nationally. Associate members supported the event and had some new developments to show and promote. The business sessions were a highlight with some very good speakers. Paddy O’Brien made a great MC and Sir Tim Shadbolt had us in stitches. If you are yet to experience a Master Joiners conference, then I encourage you consider getting along to Hamilton in May next year.

sional Development programme which will provide a variety of topics to help us grow our business’s and advance our careers. The Master Joiner Awards Dinner in Invercargill was a highlight of conference and once again we showcased the outstanding work within our industry and acknowledged the achievements of our apprentices and their employers. Special mention of Bruce Delaney who is the inaugural recipient of the Ken Monk award presented by the Joinery Training Trust NZJMF recently made submission to government on the proposed changes to vocational education and now that the decision has been released, we have begun talking with those involved in shaping the future of our trade training. We’ve also made submission to Worksafe on the Workplace Exposure Standard review where we collaborated with the WMPA assn. Thanks Gary Firman for your lead on that.NZJMF is here to lobby on your behalf so if you see an opportunity for us to have a say get in touch with your regional president or reach out to our national office. The world is sure to throw us some challenges in the near future. The US and China trade war, a slowing economy, softening real estate markets all point towards change. This is good time to strengthen your network and get involved with your Master Joiners branch. As a wise joiner recently said … don’t go it alone. All the best Paul Ingram National President Registered Master Joiners

Homag top innovator HOMAG Group AG is among the best at the 26th edition of the TOP 100 innovation competition. The TOP 100 was independently selected by innovation researcher Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke on the basis of a scientific system. This is the third time the HOMAG Group has been among the innovation elite. The award was presented in Frankfurt by science journalist and mentor of the competition Ranga Yogeshwar. The award went to companies that demonstrate exemplary innovation management and above-average innovation success. Yogeshwar sums up the qualities of the TOP 100 as follows: "Openness to new things, an open culture of errors, the constant effort to do things new and different these are the characteristics of a good culture of innovation". Franke adds: "Innovation means restlessness. The TOP 100 companies are therefore constantly creating new products, new services, new business models and new processes". "We are proud to belong to this select group of top innovators," says Pekka Paasivaara, CEO of the HOMAG Group. "The pursuit of innovation is a permanent process which never ends. The award is an incentive for us not to let up and to constantly increase the customer benefit of our products with innovations. The prize belongs to all employees of the HOMAG Group who work every day for our innovative solutions". The TOP 100 jury was impressed by, among other things, the HOMAG Group's new "Digital Factory", in which new digital products are defined and developed. These include, for example, the digital user interface "intelliGuide". It indicates the next work step to the machine operator by means of arrows and LED lights. In the global manufacturing industry, this is an important support for less qualified employees. The virtual commissioning of the TOP innovator HOMAG was also highlighted. This allows more and more systems to be simulated in a virtual system before they are even built. With this digital twin, the functionality of the entire system can be tested before the actual installation, which considerably accelerates the setup. On the other hand, the customers can also be trained on the machine so that they can operate it from the first day. 

ood to see winter on it’s way at last and daylight saving a few weeks away. We have an interesting issue built around coverage of the Master Joiners Awards and Conference from Invercargill in mid June. The Supreme Award winning staircase from McNaughtons is a technical marvel and well worthy of the big prize. We have pictures of all the other winners and of course the Apprentice award winners which we once again are proud supporters of. We will have a story on the Best Kitchen from Modern Age Joinery in our December issue. It was really good to see so many down in Invercargill, it made for a great event. There were a couple of new awards this time as well including the inaugral Ken Monk Memorial Award won by Bruce Delaney from Wintec. This year’s Conference felt like a changing of the guard not only with a new President in Paul Ingram but also for the emergence of a number of younger members coming through the ranks. The Awards night was quite special with it’s record attendance. Another feature is a look at the two European trade shows Ligna and Interzum held in late May. From all reports they were well attended including quite a few Kiwis. New ideas and perspectives always emerge from these shows and this time was no exception. From Ligna there was the firm establishment of digitalisation and systemising at a factory level among other things. We follow that with a look at another popular feature: benchtops and sinks. There continues to be real competition in this field with so many benchtops surfaces for example being on offer. Not to be outdone we have quite a few board products on offer as well in this issue. An interesting item that emerged out of the Master Joiners Conference was the Track My Tree concept from NZ Panels Group of which we have more in this issue. A good idea with excellent marketing behind it. We continue the rise of waterborne with a look at the application systems used in the finishing industry and just how important it is. No doubt in my mind that waterborne is the way to go and how easy it really is to take on board especially for those already involved through the solvent scene. As often said to me having the right mindset - and following a few simple rules - is key to the move to water based paints. I’m betting we see a proliferation of new products in this area in the year ahead. On that note I will sign off and let you enjoy this issue. Bob Nordgren

Biesse held a two day opening of its Auckland showroom where guests were able to mingle with Australian management, Italian technicians and the latest machinery.

Biesse revamp Auckland showroom The importance of the New Zealand segment in the Australasian woodworking machinery market was reflected in recent improvements to the Biesse showroom in Auckland with an increase in the range of machinery on display and in full work mode. Situated in Wiri close to the Northern, Southern and Western motorways the showroom will be a stop off point for all those looking to invest in new woodworking machinery. In town to attend the opening, along with a strong retinue of experienced technicians from Australia and Italy, Australian CEO Michael Bullock said New Zealand figures large in Biesse Australia Group thinking and with the NZ market currently pretty buoyant it was probably second only to NSW in current sales turnover. Such results determined that Auckland featured in the recent Biesse global infrastructure spend which has seen it open several campuses in Australia as well as Europe, which focus on education and service. The selection of machinery on display in Auckland is directly relevant to the NZ market and includes: the latest Biesse Stream and Akron edge banding machines - demonstrating PUR, EVA and Airforce technology; a large and small nesting set up from the Biesse Rover range; an Intermac Master One CNC water jet stone cutting machine and a Skipper V31 vertical machining centre. Along with several smaller machines, all are in full work mode to display their capabilities to local users.

Kiwi’s tend to want to know and see exactly what each machine can do and how it will directly benefit their business before they buy. While noting the New Zealand and Australian market were very similar, Michael Bullock stated that the average Kiwi buyer was probably a little more particular than their Australian counterpart. “They tend to want to know and see exactly what each machine can do and how it will directly benefit their business before they buy. Having the latest machinery available for them to view in action here in Auckland will help satisfy this requirement.” The ongoing development of Biesse’s digital platform Sophia was also evident across the showroom. Virtually every

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 10

machine Biesse now sells is hooked up to Sophia which can assist across the board in terms of planning and production efficiency as well as service and maintenance. “As well as improving manufacturing efficiencies, Sophia allows for greater development in our service structure,” says Michael, “making it far easier for both fault diagnosis and parts selection. The user can often diagnose the issue themselves via Sophia, then go online to see availability of parts and make an order which is then delivered via our 24 hour DHL service from Sydney.” Biesse NZ Country Manager, Philip Wilson said the improvements and additional machinery on display was welcomed by both staff and clients and will improve both sales and service in this country. “It provides the opportunity to bring clients to see the latest machines in action but equally importantly provides a local training facility for our own staff.” 

the future looks perfect The best is yet to come for a much-loved brand that has stood the test of time

Big launch ahead Since joining Laminex New Zealand, I’ve been enjoying meeting craftsman from the joinery profession and gaining a better understanding of your industry. I’m looking forward to spending more time in the trade and meeting more customers in the coming months. Thank you to everyone who responded to our customer survey recently. Your feedback is fantastic and will help us to focus on improving our product and service offering. Understanding our customers and ensuring we provide you with leading decors and products is our highest priority. With this in mind, Laminex New Zealand is gearing up for our biggest launch in years. Following years of research and development, on October 1, we’ll present you with a streamlined selection of our much-loved Formica and Laminex brands – including 14 brand new decors. The team have also listened to your recent feedback and will provide matching edgetape for 80% of our high-pressure laminates as well as 25 matching Melteca decors. Back in June, we launched our Timber Veneer collection which has been incredibly well-received by Architects and Designers throughout the country. They have especially welcomed the décor options available in our Reconstituted Timber Veneer collection. If you haven’t had a chance to see the range yet, a link can be found on our new home page on www.laminex.co.nz Speaking of which, our new website was another mammoth project for our marketing team.

New Zealanders enjoy an enduring love affair with highpressure laminates (HPL) – and not without reason. HPLs are adaptable and durable so they’re in it for the long-haul. Here’s the thing though: even the best relationships need an injection of excitement every now and then. That’s why Laminex New Zealand, an Australasian market leader for more than 80 years, has refreshed and evolved their HPL range. Following years of research and development, on October 1st, we’ll present a streamlined selection of our much-loved Formica and Laminex brands including 14 brand-new decors to pep up the palette.

Laminex Laminates sneak peek.

Giving you the edge The joy of HPL is that they achieve a stylish, practical finish without costing the earth. It’s a combination that Kiwis instinctively respond to and why Formica grew to be such an iconic and treasured part of our history.

Express it well This next generation of laminates opens up an exciting world of expression. In collaboration with a team of local architects and designers, we’ve developed 14 brand-new decors. These range from Nero Graphite’ - a darkly beautiful addition to our 180FX collection – “Smoked Birch Ply” in the woodgrain finish to on-trend metallic “Rose Gold” which can be used to highlight features such as negative details, the back of open shelving or selected panels.

While the Laminex and Formica collections will be trimmed down in October, the top sellers – timeless styles that never date – will remain. That means there are still close to 100 options. To enhance the end-user experience, we will introduce merchandising boards for a cleaner, more modern look that draw together samples in a coherent story. Bigger sample sizes allow the designs room to breathe and fewer samples make the choice less overwhelming. A classic case of less is more. Here’s what else we’ve learned over eight decades: the delight is in the detail. And sometimes it can make or break a project. Laminex New Zealand has invested in edgetapes created in Germany to match, as precisely as possible, 80 per cent of the HPL offering. This finishing touch makes the joins all but invisible. and, with the

introduction of 25 LPL Melteca colours to tie in with the decors in Laminex’s HPL range, it’s so much easier to achieve a cohesive look.

A refreshed range comprises the Classic Collection (78 decors) and the Specialty Collection (19 decors)

Master Joiners Conference 20-22 June 2019

great conference in the deep south This year’s conference which came from Invercargill in the deep south was outstanding for a number of reasons: great venue, great food and a record Award dinner attendance. The event formally kicked off with the traditional Thursday evening get together in the Trade Exhibit area (a full house of some 23 exhibitors) at the Ascot Hotel. We all got the first taste of the great food to follow with the great ham on the bone served to those in attendance. The Friday morning saw an interesting session from NZ Panel Group on veneers and following your tree from the forest to finished product and Parex Industries with their new product for the 2019 season. You can’t go past Invercargill’s Mayor Sir Tim Shadbolt for a laugh or two. This man is iconic and a worthy Keynote Speaker. The Friday afternoon was highlighted by the session from KLC on the MicroPro wood treatment product. This wood preservative process has been around a while now and has gained significant traction and proved to be an interesting presentation. The Friday was rounded off with a presentation from Lawyer Diana Hudson from the Otago Southland Employers Association. Friday evening saw a move to MJ’s bar, a southern themed event in the Waiau Room in the Ascot Hotel. Saturday proved to be a really big day. The session given by Natalie Sisson on striking a balance between work and play was a timely reminder of just how important systems, correct scheduling and habits are in running a successful business. This was followed by an address from new President Paul Ingram on where things are heading for the Master Joiners over the next two years: an incisive well thought out business and marketing plan based around membership, education and profile. This was followed by an interesting presentation by Biesse on automation in the machinery industry and what they have to offer. Saturday afternoon was devoted to Invercargill based activities: a petrolhead combo of a heavy equipment playground and a visit to the Motorcycle Mecca of some 300 classic motorbikes covering the period 1902 to 2007. The alternative was a leisurely bus trip to Riverton and a light lunch which I took. It was interesting to see how flat the surrounding terrain is around

Invercargill. The reason I took this trip is because I toured the motorcycle museum with Bruce Delaney from Wintec on the previous Thursday afternoon. A keen motorcyclist, Bruce was the perfect person to show me round the amazing collection of motorbikes on display. I was personally delighted to see him later win the Ken Monk Inaugural Memorial Award: I think Ken would have been smiling too. A worthy winner. That of course brings us to the Awards night held in the Transport World. I gather it was the biggest number of attendees for an Awards night. The Supreme Award winning staircase from McNaughton Windows and Doors was an outstanding piece of joinery. We have a feature item on it in this issue along with all the other winners. Special attention as always goes to the Apprentice Award winners sponsored by NZ Panel Group and JOINERS Magazine. They are the future of this industry and we wish them well. Congratulations in fact go to all the night’s winners as well as all the others who took the time to entre these ever more prestigious Awards.

interzum Cologne 21 - 24 May 2019

Always a wonderland for both the trade and the creative this years interzum was no different. We look at some of the inspiration and developments that will be integrated into the local kitchen and furniture industry in the coming year.

Innovative, inspiring, international For four full days, interzum, the world’s leading trade fair for furniture production and interior design, served as a source of inspiration for the design of future living spaces and presented the technical and visual refinements with which tomorrow’s furniture will set new standards. With 1,805 exhibitors from 60 countries (2017:1,732 exhibitors from 59), more companies than ever before showcased their innovations across an exhibition a r e a c o v e r i n g 1 9 0 , 0 0 0 m 2. In addition to increasing its exhibitor numbers, the trade fair considerably expanded its international reach. The proportion of foreign visitors rose to around 75 per cent. Out of a total audience of 74,000 visitors, over 55,000 came from outside Germany. With these outstanding figures, interzum continued its impressive

In addition to familiarising themselves with the product ranges of suppliers to the furniture industry, manufacturers, architects and designers were able to discover a host of innovative materials and production processes.

success story. The number of trade visitors has risen by more than 28 per cent since 2015. The atmosphere in the trade fair halls was excellent: exhibitors and visitors from across the globe were very satisfied with the event confirming interzum’s position as the industry’s number one trade fair in the world. Significant increases were seen in visitors from Asia, with particularly strong growth from China.

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 16

In its anniversary year, interzum mastered the balancing act of being an industry meeting place for trade visitors on the one hand and a hotspot for the creative professions on the other. A large number of inspiring presentations by companies contributed to this, demonstrating that it is not only a trade fair for the supplier industry, but also a 360-degree event that presents visions of how we will live in the future.

With a diverse range of special event areas, talk and discussion areas, piazzas and workshops on disruptive materials, surface design, digital printing, digital products and materials, smart systems, mobile living spaces and new technologies, interzum 2019 linked a broad spectrum of future issues and product innovations for tomorrow’s homes. The standout themes this year that will set the direction of future developments were the continuing rise of individualisation, energy efficiency and sustainability, light (LED), digitalisation (including voice control), micro living and “slide and hide” systems across a range of applications. 


Fit on hand to see supplier recieve design award On his fourth visit to Interzum, Fit director Marty Boakes observed that the show seemed even busier and faster paced than he’d experienced before. “Major Fit suppliers Vauth-Sagel and Salice didn’t fail to impress with their large displays and their attention to smart use of new products on show,” he commented, “and it was fantastic to see a good number of products from our suppliers winning Interzum 2019 design awards.”

Excessories - Night Collection from Salice allows wardrobes and walk-in wardrobes of all styles to accommodate elegant hangers, scarves and tie hangers, bag hangers, cotton garment holder bags, trouser hangers and shoe racks, all elements of singular refinement and efficiency. Excessories was the winner of the Interzum Award: Intelligent Material & Design 2019, given to products that best represent technological innovation combined with functionality and design. The judging panel has conferred on Excessories the highest recognition as "Best of the Best" in the category “Fittings, glass and lighting”.

Intelligent Lighting Loox Lighting 5th Generation Control light and configure the lighting individually – it’s that simple with the Loox5 system: all of the Loox5 lights installed in the house “register” in the Häfele Connect Mesh App and are integrated into the app interface in just a few steps. Now the lights can be individually actuated, dimmed, their light colour can be changed, or they can be simply switched on and off. At the same time, different lighting scenarios can be created and saved. Operation can take place completely in accordance with requirements: via the app, via remote control or using wall switches. Integrating the Häfele Connect Mesh 2-channel interface also makes every standard wall switch compatible with the app. Loox5. A modular networking kit which can be described with one word: EASY.

What was your overall impression of the event and was it worth the visit? As a supplier yes - it was the second time attending interzum for me. It’s always a full on few days (the shows in Europe are next-level-massive!), but always a great opportunity to catch up with people from far and near, see the trends of what’s hot and what’s not, and incorporate visits to our suppliers’ factories while on the other side of the world. What caught your eye the most? Texture. Texture. Texture. It was everywhere, in the form of synchronized woodgrains (such as Timbalook) and concrete/stone tones (such as our Lookcrete). But then again, I don’t think matte will be going anywhere anytime soon either! Is Europe ahead of us trend wise? I think most kiwis would agree that New Zealand follows European trends. However, at Sage Doors, we’re working hard to reduce that gap for our customers. With lots of texture in our products and our new automated machines in the factory, I think we’re getting there Lydia Posthuma Sage Doors

Hannover 27 - 31 May 2019

the future is here Products and service on display in Hannover were all about getting smarter. Over the next few pages our major machinery and tooling suppliers show us just how smart, and the possible benefits for your business

The five-day LIGNA 2019 closed on an impressive note. Smart, future proof solutions were at the top of the agenda, and LIGNA 2019 made it amply clear that technology users are now "getting smart" with regard to digitization and automation. Major emphasis was placed on integrated solutions for companies of all sizes. A total of 1,500 exhibitors from 50 nations presented their impressive solutions to more than 90,000 visitors from over 100 countries with well over 40,000 visitors from abroad – an indication of the show's international appeal. Trends and innovations Manufacturers of wood processing machinery for solid and engineered wood concentrated on automation and integrated systems, especially on modular technologies as a gateway to

digitization. The approach here is one of end-to-end digitization – with concepts spanning everything from planning and design to production and monitoring. The other notable feature of these new digitization technologies is that they are as easy and intuitive to use as smartphones. Meanwhile, robotics technology is increasingly becoming the norm across all areas of industrial manufacturing, from materials handing to collaborative processing by humans and machines, right through to surface finishing. The surfacefinishing link in the value chain is becoming increasingly integrated into the overall production system. Automated guided vehicle systems are optimizing materials flows. And advanced central system control modules are intelligently managing the associated data and aggregating it quickly and efficiently for even the most demanding of single-batch production scenarios.

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 24

From the cloud technologies on show, it was clear that cloudbased data management has now fully made the transition from proprietary systems to digital ecosystems. Thanks to a growing array of digital assistance solutions, the use of production data for preventive maintenance and production planning is getting more efficient all the time. Technologies considered to be visionary at the previous LIGNA have now become reality. Another vision that is getting closer and closer to becoming a reality relates to networking based on standardized communication protocols for all machines. On that score, the European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (EUMABOIS) and the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) used LIGNA to present a framework for a new P&W (Plug & Work) standard. The framework is a joint project

by eight leading European manufacturers of woodworking machinery. LIGNA 2019 also presented "all-in-one" solutions that can efficiently bring together multiple standalone machines to create integrated process flows. The show likewise featured new developments in saw technology that deliver industrial safety benefits. These involve highperformance sensor systems for material detection – a new generation of self-learning scanner technology that represents an exciting initial implementation of AI in woodworking. The highlights of the wood-based construction area of the show included the world premiere of a six-axis aggregate that can process work-pieces on all sides without repositioning. There was also a newly developed membrane press that can handle curved and uneven surfaces. 

HOMAG

relies on the right solutions At LIGNA 2019, - as part of the HOMAG claim ‘YOUR SOLUTION’, HOMAG showcased a wide range of solutions to help companies meet the market requirements of today along with the trends of tomorrow. Their integrated, comprehensive workshop and cell concepts along with digital features and software solutions attracted a great deal of attention.

Workshop Concepts HOMAG addressed the central issues affecting woodworking shops and medium-sized businesses: • What specific options does digitalization already offer small and medium-sized businesses today? • Which easy-to-use assistants and features can support carpenters/joiners in their dayto-day work? • How can every business find the right building blocks for their own "workshop of the future"? HOMAG addressed these questions by exhibiting clever aids that simplify working life and support work processes using just a few simple steps. There is no need to invest in an entire system; instead, the user can opt for individual machines, smart hardware, software and digital assistants that communicate with each other and integrate these into the business in a way that will benefit most. HOMAG ran a range of TEQtours, which presented the new, integrated concepts live, to show visitors what the solutions might look like in practice and the advantages they offer in day-to-day working life. – in total around 1,500 people took part in the TEQtours, providing further confirmation that visitors are interested in venturing into digitalization and networked and automated production for SMEs. Surface finishing expertise Technological developments for surface processing are ongoing at HOMAG. This was also evident at LIGNA 2019. Surface solutions took up a large proportion of the exhibition space. Machines for surface and profile painting, sanding machines in various performance classes, solid wood

“we have made huge strides in digital woodworking. The level of interest in modern technology remains high all around the world. The new solutions appeal to small companies just as much as industrial processors. A positive sign for us all.” Pekka Paasivaara CEO HOMAG

Your solution for digital entry At some point, almost every business faces the question of how best to get started. Here, HOMAG presents simple entry-level solutions that allow the user to gain transparency in their production, recognize potential for optimization and improve existing production processes.

profiling as well as the latest developments in laminating were on display. HOMAG presented new technologies and features for all aspects of surface processing, offering users new methods for manufacturing high-quality furniture in an ergonomic, smart and efficient way.

Your solution for a networked, workshop In this workshop concept, HOMAG demonstrated how every machine is operated by a single employee. The areas of work preparation, machinery and the bench room are organizationally separated from one another. The job data is partially available to machine users in digital form. With digital assistants, the user can now adjust the work processes step-by-step.

HOMAG also showcased solutions for a range of requirements: • Two new, integrated workshop concepts, specially designed for carpenters and joiners with easy digital assistants and features • A fully networked, automated and completely autonomous concept for SMEs • A solution for high-performance furniture production at high-speed

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 26

Your solution for networked, individual cells At LIGNA, HOMAG presented processing cells that can be extended on a modular basis — perfect for medium-sized wood-processing businesses. Each cell is already an ideal solution for efficient panel processing. The individual cells are networked via the automated guided vehicles (TRANSBOT). The ControllerMES production control system takes over higher level control. All of these elements come together to form a fully autonomous and automated production concept for batch size 1 production that can be adjusted to suit customer requirements.

Success for SCM Smart&Human factory outstanding interest shown in technological and digital solutions The 2019 edition of the trade fair in Hanover in which SCM has been taking part for 60 years, was, as expected, a great success. Thousands of business clients and visitors from more than 100 Countries, filled SCM's elegant, bright stand with more than sixty technological solutions made available to the entire industry for the second processing of wood, with outstanding opportunities across all the key international markets. The Smart&Human Factory generated a huge amount of interest with its flexible and modular automated cells, integrated with industrial and collaborative robots, unmanned shuttles and state-ofthe-art IoT digital services and software. An intelligent but userfriendly factory, which the vast, international crowd at Ligna 2019 was given a chance to discover amongst the different operating cells and in its "smarter" mode thanks to the dozens of real time demos projected onto the huge LED wall in the SCM Arena, at the heart of the stand, made possible by an advanced system of videocameras installed directly in the SCM machinery processing and demonstration area. The return in terms of orders, deals and contacts on all product types was very high, including the new integrated solutions for surface treatments, proof of how the sector remains dynamic and strongly attracted to the most advanced made in Italy technology. SCM presented new models for each wood machining stage at Ligna 2019. In the Smart&Human Factory which goes beyond the traditional automation systems with its flexible and modular cells that can be put together as the client wishes to meet the most varied of machining demands, Flexstore HP, the automatic high performance shaped panel warehouse integrated with the new Morbidelli x400 nesting centre, the new Stefani cell edgebanding cell for "batch 1" and the new

CNC Morbidelli ux200d drilling machine all attracted considerable interest. The DMC system sanding technology integrated with the Superfici spray painting systems and the new robotic glue applications as well as the new Sergiani 3d form press attracted a lot of attention at the surface treatment island. The new CNC Hypsos and Balestrini power machining centres for solid wood technologies were well received as was the Oikos X for carpentry work, thanks to its exclusive 6-axes machining heads. There were also plenty of new entries for joinery machinery starting with the new class PX 350i mobile carriage circular saw. Digital took centre stage as one of SCM's key new entries with the renewed Maestro Digital Systems that diversified and increased the offer in Software and Digital Services. The first ones involve two types of software: Maestro office, different office software for programming, management and data optimisation and Maestro active, the new HMI on the machinery, which received a special mention at the most recent German Design Award and which

Homag shows edge profiling variety at Ligna

I

n total, over 90,000 people from more than 100 countries visited LIGNA in Hanover, and statistics show the quality of the inquiries at the HOMAG stand rose – with visitors spending on average longer there and holding more in-depth conversations compared to previous years. As always the edgebanding areas of the Homag stand were very busy as visitors poured over the new technology on show. On display was the new EDGETEQ S-240, providing smaller workshops with the benefits of fast and accurate set-up.With increasingly higher customer expectations, the motordriven axis adjustment of the

multi-profile scraper unit will ensure a very high-quality finish is achievable on a wide range of materials. Fine adjustments to compensate for variations in tape thickness and/or foils are easily taken care of at the push of a button. The EDGETEQ S-240 model also features the Homag QA65N glue application unit with auto cleaning and purging functions making the machine ideal for processing both EVA and PUR glue types. Glue-line appearance with either EVA or PUR glue is significantly reduced with the QA65N gluing unit. Changes in glue colour are achievable in under 2 minutes without wasting any glue.

LIGNA revealed new features on a range of edgebanders from Homag. These included the S-200, now available with the Homag AT10 AirTec unit for processing laser tape. The S-200 can now achieve a zero-join glue-line at a fraction of the cost of larger industrial models. Just simply flick a switch to go from using the conventional gluing unit to AirTec unit. Heat-up time of the AirTec unit is less than 3 mins. Also new, the EDGETEQ S-300 is now available with the new PUR pre-melting unit, which delivers a melting capacity of 2.5 kg/h. You can now choose which glue form to work with: glue granulate or glue cartridges. The QA65N

glue application unit offers auto cleaning and purging. It can be filled manually with EVA or PUR glue in granulate form—or automatically via a new PUR premelting unit. The S-300 also features motor driven set-up of all processing units for fast set-up on various materials. For example, the infeed fence, pressure zone and beam height can be adjusted via the powerTouch control panel. Auto positioning of the multi-profile trimming and scraping units provide quick and accurate set-up as well as delivering the flexibility to process 1mm & 2mm radii by simply selecting the appropriate program. 

Felder’s new PCS® system prevents contact between operator and blade Prevent accidents at the speed of light When the risk of an accident is detected, PCS® triggers the lowering of the saw blade under the saw table at the speed of light. The functionality, based on the electro-magnetic law of repulsion, allows for an extremely short response time of a few milliseconds. Surveillance of danger zone Upon detection of an unexpected, fast approach within the saw blade area, PCS® triggers the safety mechanism, lowering the blade. The safety environment surrounds the saw blade and protects against access from all directions.

Hettich and tapio team up On show at LIGNA was Vitap’s latest in their range of specialist CNC machines: the K2 2.0. Versatility is the keyword for the K2 2.0. Within a small footprint you can drill on 5-faces of a workpiece in one step, and accept aggregates for horizontal milling. This opens up the opportunity to use alternative cabinet construction methods, and corresponding hardware, including construction for flatpacking. As well as cabinetry the K2 2.0 can also process doors, stair stringers, curved table tops and much more. With a unique clamping system to feed and move parts there are no vacuum pumps, so reduced power consumption and reduced noise. This award-winning CNC offers an exciting opportunity for small to medium joinery shops wanting a new way of working, or for larger companies looking for overflow processing. Later in the year Jacks will have the first of these machines on display in their Auckland showroom.

Digitisation, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence: Hettich and partner tapio team up and take the step towards Industry 4.0. with the declared objective to make machines more intelligent. Hettich showcased the concept study of a partly automated ArciFit 300 assembly machine as part of tapio's (Homag’s software platform for the woodworking industry) presentation lineup at Ligna. This automatically sets the width of the drawer on the basis of cabinet body planned in CAD saving time and mistakes as no setting times are involved for different widths. Hettich sees the opportunity to become part of a network in which all machines in furniture production are interconnected and can be monitored by apps – regardless of machine type

and make. tapio is working hard on implementing this network, programming the interfaces needed and providing the requisite shared data platform. Even today, MachineBoard – an app from tapio – lets manufacturers view the status and utilisation of each individual machine, providing flexibility in responding to optimising aspects, such as the extent to which capacities are being used.

In future, the planned approach towards interconnecting the way in which different machine types and makes work together will provide tremendous potential in terms of manufacturing efficiency. This is clearly illustrated by the example of the concept study which produces the greatest possible level of furniture customisation while also boosting efficiency. www.hettich.co.nz

Biesse show a view of factory 4.0 90,000 visitors from 100 countries showed great interest in Biesse as they participated in the 5 days of the important trade show. The 6,000 square metre stand earned the appreciation of customers, partners and the press, a gratifying response to the company's investment in increasingly efficient services, innovative products and an even greater local presence to the benefit of customers. The Digital Hub in the middle of the stand guided customers on a journey through the various phases of construction for the Factory 4.0 by means of a simulation of the processes, the machining, the planning software and the optimisation and programming of the production plants, all the way to the selection of the services available for monitoring progress and increasing productivity and all the services offered by SOPHIA.

In addition, three completely automated process lines showed customers the results that can be achieved with customised, flexible production. The stand saw the début of the new Stream A Smart and Akron 1100 edgebanding machines, the new Uniteam RC machining centres for housing, and the new FPS (Feedback Positioning System) work tables

for the Rover machining centres. 7 ROS (Robotically Operated Systems) served the cutting, boring, smoothing and CNC machines. Other presentations at LIGNA included the official announcement of the “Plug & Work” project, which is based on “OPC UA” (Open Platform Communication

Unified Architecture) standards and stems from collaboration with Eumabois and VDMA. The project is backed by the OPC Foundation as it aims to establish a standard semantic architecture for the wood sector. 

Ashford & SCM

an intertwining of tradition & high-tech This family-run company has been manufacturing spinning wheels and weaving looms in native Silver Beech hardwood, in New Zealand, since 1934. Nowadays Ashford Handicrafts Ltd is a world leader in the industry and exports 90% of its production. The use of SCM equipment over the past 30 years has enabled the company to achieve high levels of precision and productivity to compete successfully in a global market. Spinning wheels and weaving looms - that have accompanied human kind through its history – enable spinners and weavers today to create unique and beautiful fabric and homewares. Ashford wheels and looms are also ecosustainable, renewable and environmentally friendly thanks to the dedication shown by the owners towards waste recycling, a reduction in energy consumption, and above all, they are the result of significant R&D work. Available in natural wood or finished with ecological water-based paint, they are designed for easy assembly as well as being a pleasure to use. The company was founded by Walter Ashford 85 years ago and today is run by son Richard and his wife Elizabeth, and their son James and his husband David Lester. Thirty plus employees work alongside them, bound by a common goal of upholding the tradition of spinning and weaving that has been handed down over the centuries. “Our products for textile crafts are aimed at hobbyists, for teaching purposes and working from home,” confirm Richard and Elizabeth. “95% of our production is in solid wood while some parts are in veneered MDF and plywood”. The company exports to over 40 countries and with the exception of neighbouring Australia, all its other main markets are geographically distant, like Europe (especially Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and Russia), the United States, Canada, Japan, India, Taiwan, Thailand, and South Africa. The owners explain that their clientele is highly demanding, looking for top quality textile equipment that makes the crafts easier and more enjoyable while increasing productivity. For a company like Ashfords, which produces all the timber components internally, it is

“We manufacture around 100 different products, each one comprising of sometimes more than 20 parts, so we need to concentrate on production methods that provide maximum efficiency using CNC machinery.” Richard Ashford

essential to have quality highperforming machinery. The association with SCM whose technologies have ensured the achievement of high levels of precision as well as significant reduction in production times, proved decisive. Overall, Ashford have chosen nine SCM machines, of which seven are CNC machining centres including two SCM Morbidelli X400s to be delivered later this year. In the factory Richard and Elizabeth showed us the accord 30 FX, one of SCM’s best suited models for every kind of intense processing that requires a great deal of machining, maintaining high standards of accuracy and quality finish. Glancing around the factory, we spot other models with different functions: a Morbidelli N200 nesting machining centre

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 34

(Universal 2412 pre-rebranding), a Superset NT throughfeed moulder, a DMC Eurosand sanding and calibrating machine (model currently replaced by the DMC eurosystem) and other machinery for solid wood processing including the very first SCM bought more than twenty years earlier, an SCM Routomat. For many years the Ashford owners have favoured the “Made in Italy” technology offered by SCM for a more accurate production of parts, as well as greater performance, less waste and increased safety, in line with the strictest regulations. “We have remained loyal to the SCM brand because their machinery offers a series of advantages such as the interchanging of parts, tooling and software, not to mention the

training and excellent after-sales service provided by the Italian group and their dealer in New Zealand, Machine R Us”. Based on these excellent principles, the Ashford family continues to weave its future with the same passion, creativity and energy which have stood them apart from the outset. “We are looking at how to further increase productivity by investing in other CNC machining centres,” explain Richard and Elizabeth proudly, before saying goodbye. High technology and innovation come together even in an antique work tool, but one with timeless charm. 

The 7505 with its six position tool changer, ceramic bearing, 24 drilling spindles and grooving saws in X and Y direction, is robust enough to process laminated board, Corian and the Fenix NTM product with ease.

Dave Roberts with his son Jamie and their latest purchase from Holzher.

Prefinished Surfaces making headway with the latest from Holzher Business for Prefinished Surfaces, specialists in Solid Surface bench tops, has been brisk in the years since owner Dave Roberts established it, in early 2015, in Henderson, Auckland. After over 30 years working in the bench top industry, growth in the business has been a factor in his recent purchase of a new panel processing machine with the latest nesting technology: the Dynestic 7505 CNC Machining Centre from Holzher. “The 7505 has been good for us for several reasons,” says Dave. “We produce a lot of engineered benchtops, including Corian, Laminex and more recently, an innovative material called Fenix NTM, which comes in 12mm sheets from Italy, and offers low light reflectivity, and an opaque and anti fingerprint surface.”

The 7505 with its integrated linear six position tool changer (upgradable to twelve), high performance spindle with ceramic bearing and a fully equipped drilling head with up to 24 drilling spindles and grooving saws in X and Y direction, is robust enough to process laminated board, Corian and the Fenix NTM product with ease. Just as important as these technical features, has been the service support from the local agent for Holzher, Technical Machinery Services (TechMS). “Mike French and Rajan Pillay have been great to deal with, for any training or technical issues. The installation was efficient and the machine footprint (3700mm by 1580mm) allows access on all sides when in use or for any servicing required. A nice safety feature is the light grid surrounding the Dynestic 7505 CNC, which means the machine stops if it is crossed whilst in

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 36

operation.” The software for the system is Alpha Cam from Cam Solutions Ltd. With his business expanding, Dave has found the 7505 ideal. “Most of what we do is custom made,” says Dave. “We currently have six employees, with many years experience, who are busy manufacturing bench tops for both the residential and commercial sectors. The 7505 is a welcome addition to our existing operation and makes us well placed to meet our clients’ needs.

ZOMODO has launched the exciting new PearlArc collection of sinks, taps and accessories. Utilizing the latest cathodic arc surface treatment technologies, the ZOMODO products will be the highlight of your kitchen space. Perfect for modern open-plan living spaces. SHOT-PEEN SURFACE HARDENING Shot peening the stainless steel surface creates a harder more durable surface that is both scratch-resistant and impactresitant. The mixed material pellets are fired into the stainless steel surface causing plastic deformation and hence compressive stress in the material.

Drainer Tray TITANIUM OXIDE COATING Commonly refered to as PVD, Titanium and Chrome Oxide Coating is a vapour deposition technique where solid titanium or chrome metal is vaporized in a high vacuum environment and deposited on to the sink surface as a pure metal coating. The process transfers the molecular level providing an extremely hardwearing coloured layer.

These funtional and stylish Drainer Trays are now available in Zomodo’s unique PearlArc finish. They are cleverly designed to fit on top of your sink bowl thus turning a double bowl sink into a single bowl and drainer. Alternatively the tray can locate on the bench next to your sink enabling water to drain off your dishes and flow straight into the sink bowl.

NANO RESIN COATING Finally a nano-resin layer of hydrophobic active substance provides long lasting ultrathin protection and a durable easy to clean surface effect.

Fibre Rock Chopping Board Zomodo has developed a new range of cutting boards/trivets that utilize their new “Fibre-Rock” materials. These boards are knife friendly, hardwearing, and extremely strong which enables a much thinner profile than standard cutting boards. Dishwasher safe, hygienic, and able to withstand temperatures up to 160C degrees the ZOMODO Fibre-Rock chopping boards will last for years!

Rochelle and Craig Riley are very pleased with the capabilities and finish of their new Olimpic K 560 from SCM.

clients like what they can’t see An increasing call from clients for invisible seams and the wish to retain as much of their work inhouse as possible was the catalyst for La Bella Kitchens in their decision to upgrade their edgebander. The resultant research culminated in the purchase of an SCM Olimpic K 560 from Machines R Us, landed here in early June it has had an immediate effect on improving the quality of work coming out of the shop. La Bella Kitchens design and manufacture kitchens from their factory/showroom site in the east Auckland suburb of Howick. The company employs three designers and four guys on the shop floor producing 1-2 kitchens a week. They are currently very busy doing mostly renovation work, largely on referrals from designers and architects. The operation is very bespoke, mid to high end, hands on and client orientated. “We have found our clients like dealing with the same people throughout the design, manufacture and install process,” says owner and Managing Director Craig Riley. Listening to their clients was a big factor in their new purchase. “We found more and more clients requesting invisible seams,” say designer and co-owner Rochelle Riley. “The absence of glue lines has become equated with the high end product, which of course everybody wants. This

was requiring us to outsource that portion of the work and we were very keen to get that back inhouse to improve our control over the whole process as well as benefit from the added value of the product.” Craig and Rochelle researched the main European brands offering the technology they were after in a machine that suited their purpose and size. “We had a good look around and in the end came to SCM and the Olimpic K 560 as it provided the finish we were looking for, was at a price that suited our budget and has the sort of build quality that gives confidence in its longevity,” says Craig. “It is the absolute latest in technology at this level. Previously you had to step up to much larger and more expensive models to get the same technology that we have in this machine. It is the first at this level with the new

EYE M controller which links us wirelessly to both Machines R Us and SCM in Italy so any software or indeed other issues can usually be easily diagnosed and rectified - often remotely.” “The olimpic K 560 edges with either EVA or PUR glues or AirFusion which gives near seamless joins. Currently we are using just the EVA and AirFusion options, with interchangeable tanks making the change out from one to the other very quick and simple. AirFusion is a little more expensive in terms of material but the finish is fantastic and we now tend to specify it as standard where colour availability allows.” The first month of use has been an easy one for the Rileys. “Apart from manoeuvring it into our shop the installation was straight forward, it probably took 2-3 days to set up the electricals, air and dust extraction then hook up

the machine. The Machines R Us technicians really new their stuff and we were virtually edging straight away. We have had a couple of little things we have called them back on, mostly to do with the temperature in our shop and they were here the next day so we are very happy with their after sales service.” “We actually went to SCM in Italy while we were in Europe recently and they looked after us very well. We had already virtually decided on an earlier SCM model but when we saw the olimpic range we knew there was no point in buying the older technology so we upgraded, a decision we are very pleased with as we see the early results coming off this machine.” 


High performance and versatility in edgebanding

olimpic k 560 The olimpic k 560 is designed for companies requiring to process many panels per day even though they may be different from one to another. The olimpic k 560 has several solutions that guarantee the best machining on any panel type.

FAST & SIMPLE

INVISIBLE

MULTI SURFACE

DOUBLE FUNCTION

Perfect joint line with the “SGP” glue pot thanks to the perfect dosing and the special spreading roller. The use of EVA and Polyurethane glue is made possible by the anti-adherent plasma treatment and a fast and simple glue changeover.

Extraordinary level of finishing quality with the AirFusion+ technology that allows edgebanding without glue, thus ensuring that the joint between the edge and the panel is invisible.

Perfect results on all surfaces. The controlled axes allow all intermediate positioning of the trimming and edge scraping groups, ensuring optimal edge banding even in the case of surfaces with different degrees of roughness or panels covered with protective film. These units allow the machining of 2 different radii, endless thin edges and solid wood.

"Round X" rounding unit: productivity and quality with 2 motors technology. The features of the unit allow for the double function of simultaneous trimming and rounding operations. The two joint operations, in a single group, require less space and, together with a working distance between panes of only 600mm, give a reduction in edge banding time.

Expanded NZ Native Veneer offer sustainable and trackable

W

ith the appointment of a full time Wood Source Manager, NZ Panels Group has been able to secure a more consistent, quality supply of NZ Native timber for its veneer panels. As a result, its veneer offer through Bestwood and Prime Panels has expanded to include sampled species such as Totara, Matai, Coloured Rimu and Pale Rimu. In tandem with this, the company has introduced ‘Track my Tree’ - an exciting new initiative that could well be a world first for

the veneer industry. It provides confidence that veneer panels from both Bestwood and Prime Panels are sustainably sourced and have a clear chain of custody from the farm or forest right through to the veneer press in Auckland. The unique Track my Tree code is printed on the invoice when the NZ native veneer panels are sold and also affixed to the side of the veneer panel prior to despatch. Entering the code on either the Bestwood or Prime Panels website makes it possible

to view the relevant MPI permit for sustainable harvest and see the source type such as windblown tree. An additional bonus that many joiners have commented will appeal to their clients is the ability to enter the code and view an image of the tree or group of trees the veneer was sourced from and its Google Maps location. As NZ Panels Group Marketing Manager Desiree Keown points out, a Track my Tree veneer can confer great bragging rights for

the ultimate owner of the veneer. “Imagine whipping out your phone or tablet to show the exact tree and location that your new kitchen or piece of furniture came from?” Even without a code, it’s possible to browse the database of trees which have provided native veneer for Bestwood and Prime Panels – but this method won’t display the code so there is no traceability to a specific order.

The basics to getting the best from waterborne coatings start from controlling the circumstance of it’s use: temperature, air movement and humidity.

The Rise of Waterborne (part II)

Good application systems make it all worthwhile In our first article (June 19 issue) we looked at the move from solvent based coatings to water based coatings as it has applied to wood surfaces. The last five years has seen a quantum shift toward water based as all the leading paint manufacturers have come to market with their water based product. An interesting aspect of all this has been the application systems used to apply the water based product. JOINERS Magazine spoke to some of the leading paint suppliers and spray gear suppliers about the issues involved in getting the best out of water based coatings.

The most striking comment in talking to those in the know has been that using water based paint, done properly, is not the issue it may have appeared to be. The basics to getting the best from waterborne coatings start from controlling the circumstance of it’s use: temperature, air movement and humidity. It also means in the case of some products such as MDF that the substrate type and condition should be assessed and if necessary approved as being suitable, for a complete water based coating system. Paul Williamson from the Resene Automotive and Light Industrial Division comments. “By using good air flow, some heating and controlled drying consistently, it will make the coating with water based paints simple and effective, producing a long lasting finish.”

1000 parts per litre for the majority of our new AquaLAQ products, which is particularly important for things such as children’s furniture” comments Paul. “AquaLAQ is a complete water based system for cabinetmakers comprising a water based quick dry Sealer, a water based Colour Coat available in the full Resene Total Colour offer, and water based clear coats if required.” A key part of the design process for Resene has been to meet key environmental standards applied to water based paint. “Meeting the Assured Quality and Environmental Choice standards is vitally important whilst also making sure the application and performance of the products is suitable for the application. We have managed to get the VOC (volatile organic compounds) level down to below 60 parts per

In the actual coating process the air to fluid ratio is key in applying water based paint. If the air to fluid ratio is too high, premature drying on the extremities of the spray pattern will occur, too low will result in poor atomisation and orange peel.

Good application systems ... (cont.) such issues. Where the application is by spraying, the issue of what equipment to use has slowly resolved itself over the last few years. “Using dedicated waterborne spray gear has become the norm these daysâ€? comments Jason Lynch from Strouds, suppliers of Graco and Binks spray gear. “It is possible to use equipment previously used on solvent based paints but with extreme caution, plastic components such as pump seals, uid hoses and ďŹ lter components absorb solvents, using waterborne through these systems without neutralising or replacing these items may cause contamination issues resulting in post spray warranty issues. We recommend using a pump saver which helps save the spray gear from the corrosive eects water can have if left in the pump or pressure pot.â€? Some may be put off by the cost of shifting to waterborne systems. Using the best gear with

stainless steel parts is the best option. “Using waterbased paint is indeed a dierent system from solvent but it is not as diďŹƒcult as it sounds.â€? comments Chey Brown from DBNZ Coatings, NZ agents for the OECE brand from Sherwin Williams. “The key is a willingness to try out waterbased paint. It is not that hard and with a little practice most spraypainters will be asking what all the fuss was about.â€? This leads to the question of education. “Dealing

with the mental and possibly the dollar barriers (apart from equipment costs, water based vs solvent paint cost is competitive) will see the already huge shift to waterborne continue.� This need for education has seen a number of industry partnerships spring up to address this issue. Strouds for example have good working relationships involving training and R&D with most paint suppliers.

PPG’s Technical Sales Trainer Adrian Armstrong comments. “We have been running trials of recent and good preparation of the wood surface deals with grain raise and leads to good paint coverage and a lower cost per square metre with waterbased paint. Drying times are very good with good hardness as well. Long term water based is the future. It has been interesting to note that the popular look at the moment has been matt and flat finish which has ďŹ tted with the technical stage water based is at. Colour has been a challenge but is being addressed by the industry. After much research and testing we at PPG will soon be launching a new waterbased paint called 2K 500 Amerthane Pigmented to deal with coloured coatings.â€? In speaking with Andrew Hebden from Mirotone NZ Ltd, another leading paint manufacturer in the New Zealand market, he comments. “At Mirotone, we (cont. over page)

spray-painting perfection BBC Commercial, specialists in commercial joinery and fitouts have recently installed a new Egmont Spray-booth system in their Mt Maunganui production facility. Over the past 30 years, BBC Commercial has continually expanded due to their ability to provide a range of tailored and versatile joinery solutions to businesses throughout New Zealand. “We love a good challenge, taking a customers dream and making it happen is an important part of the culture in our business,” comments Mr Mark Crowhurst, manager of BBC Commercial. Egmont Air also embrace this philosophy and delivered the same ‘solution focused’ spray-booth design for BBC. A custom spraybooth system was designed that allowed easy access of bulky shop displays and cabinets, high-efficiency filtration to provide a top-quality finish, and compliance with NZ spray-booth standards and regulations. The Egmont Air spray-booth system is constructed from a modular panel system complete with LED lighting, large bi-fold doors, dual supply and exhaust fans for balanced airflow and four-stage filtration to supply pure-clean air for a top-quality finish and also ensure compliance with clean-air discharge regulations. Mr Cameron Prestidge from Egmont Air explains “We also build our own control-boards systems complete with PLC logic to provide airflow monitoring, purge timers, door and spray interlocks, etc and this ensures compliance with the stringent NZ spray-booth regulations”. The new “Egmont Spray-booth has made a massive difference to our production facility, it has enabled us to process work quickly, minimise handling, control quality and reduce costs. The Egmont Air booth has paid itself off in less than 1 year of operation!” Comments Mr Ian West, director and owner of BBC Commercial.

Egmont Air Systems are not only limited to spray-booths, many solutions are available off-the-shelf for all types of dust or fume applications including wood dust or shavings, smoke, welding fumes, and more.

Good application systems ... (cont.) certainly agree that the application of water based coatings are different to solvent based systems. As an example, their rheology is different so the way the coating ‘lays down’ is different. However with the correct equipment, correct environment and support from our people, our customers can achieve very acceptable finishes using our range of water based coatings. For some years we have offered not only the latest water based technology from Europe in partnership with ICA SpA (Italy), but also specifically New Zealand developed water based systems which are now used on a regular basis by our customers. We remain committed to help any applicator move to the lower VOC coatings should they choose to do so.” When it comes to the industry learning more Paul Williamson comments “The market wants to be trained in using waterborne paints and with some simple rules this is working in the shift to waterborne obviated by not only its simplicity but also the health and environmental factors involved.” A good example is after spray. With water it is dry while with solvent it is wet. Water based after spray can simply be swept up later. Another is ‘running’ on a vertical surface. Spraying with waterborne can lead to running which if left simply smooths out as it dries. When sprayed correctly, there is much less cause for reworking with waterborne. The basics are all that need to be followed as in dealing for example with wood

grain raise: a smooth (sanded) surface and undercoat to seal is essential to which can be painted a one or two coat water based paint. With the right equipment and correct application, drying times in the right environment look to be excellent and hardness as compared to solvent are very good and getting even better. When it comes to health and safety, an interesting development is the workspace chemical safety initiative. The Global Harmonised System (GHS) is a chemical labelling system designed to make everyone aware of the level of health hazard chemicals can create through the appropriate label. This system is important in the development of health and safety both within the industry as well as amongst those who use these products. The future of waterborne paints look assured in the wider sense. Drying times and integrated paint systems dealing with both clear and pigmented coatings that address issues such as comparative hardness and the wider issue of health and safety are still subject to ongoing R & D. As to the best the coating industry can get out of waterborne paint? Talk to your supplier, try it out, get a feel for it. Follow the rules and it’s not as difficult as it may seem. Bob Nordgren


a chance to grow C entral ITM in Feilding have for the past six months been exploring different opportunities to grow their business having completed the move to nested base manufacturing with the purchase of a CNC machine from Proform CNC Ltd to add to their panel saw and edgebander. “It has proved to be a good move for us especially for our supply of componentry for top end kitchens as well as a range of other products in both solid wood, MDF and plywood ranging from chopping boards, signage and even trellis jigs.” says Branch Manager Tom James.

Going back to 2018 the team went to the AWISA Show in Sydney to look at among other things the latest in CNC machines. “We had been looking at expanding our wood joinery and cabinetmaking operation and came across the Proform machines on display” explains Tom. “We liked what we saw: a compact, robust unit with an auto tool changer and precision router spindle that was priced

right. It also was a perfect starting point for the move into nested base manufacturing.” Back in New Zealand they followed through with Proform CNC Ltd’s Manager Rob Hutchings and had the Fusion CNC Router ATC 25/13 installed in late January this year. The 2440mm by 1220mm table can process standard size sheets and allows for computer controlled shape nesting. A powerful 9 kW motor runs the ATC head. The ATC 12 tool changer is a real time saver.

From left - Robert James, Fusion ATC 25/13, Terry Jaggard and Peter Hanson.

The machine has been particularly useful in their joinery shop alongside their edgebander and panel saw leading to other work such as the manufacture of mouldings and other kitchen componentry. “The machine has enabled us to add value to our business doing things a lot quicker and efficiently.” comments Tom. The install by Proform in the Feilding facility was quick and simple. Central ITM is made up of the Marton operation bought

back in 1998 to which was joined the Feilding ITM in 2001. The Foxton operation known as the ‘Hometown ITM’ was added more recently. Central ITM in Feilding where the new CNC machine is located has some fourteen staff on site. The process of learning how to use the machine has been a simple one explains Tom “With a couple of days training from Rob doing practical everyday functions we were soon on our way. A real plus has been the ongoing service.

Proform have always been there when we needed some help.” Things look good for Central ITM as they continue to grow their business. For more information contact Tom James at Central ITM on 027 433 6279 or tom@ centralitm.co.nz or visit www. itm.co.nz/feilding

Opt for Imperia LED Downlights for safe affordable cabinet lighting Why Choose LEDs? LED lighting uses 85% less electricity than typical incandescent and fluorescent light sources. LEDs provide us with the most efficient way to save energy and conserve our natural resources. The light produced from an LED is an even spectrum and can last beyond 10 years - which is 30,000 - 60,000 hours or more! LEDs consume significantly less energy and operate at lower temperatures than typical incandescent bulbs. Most of the energy emitted from an incandescent bulb is converted into heat instead of light, which is why you'll burn yourself if you try to touch it once it's turned on. In many cases you can actually feel the temperature difference just by being near the light. LEDs, however, don't burn out like a conventional lamp, so while they do produce

some level of waste heat, individual diodes do not need to be replaced and they do not cause colour fading in clothes and art. The small amount of waste heat produced within the LED during the conversion of electricity into light is drawn into the downlight profile to dissipate into the air and prolong the life of the LED diodes for a safer, healthier and more energy efficient light source. Imperia Downlights from Stefano Orlati are safe, affordable and energy efficient and now come in a range of finishes and profiles to suit any cabinet. 24v downlights are available in matt black, foggy silver and satin nickel with optional surface mount brackets for round and square profiles. www.stefano-orlati.com

Popular all round Popular Kitchens, has grown just like the city they serve: fast! Owner William Zhang was one of just two who started the company back in 2006. Today there are 26 staff based out of a large manufacturing facility in Pakuranga, Auckland. With eight design and sales staff in the office, there are another 18 staff either in the workshops, or out delivering and assisting installers. With their own trucks, a paintshop, and a granite benchtop facility, Popular Kitchens is totally in control of the customer experience. Now with a new Homag 1870FSC edgebander with airTec capability, they can also cater to every customer requirement. With his background as a mechanical engineer, it’s no surprise that William is scrupulous about the quality of the machinery he purchases. First came the decision to offer cabinets with a higloss finish via hot-air activated laser-edged tape. Second was deciding what edgebander to buy to do it. Given how happy he was with his Brandt (now branded Homag) 1600 series machine, purchased in 2013, William didn’t hesitate to talk to his long-time Jacks rep John Walton. “John’s been working with me for many years” says William, “and he knows I’m only interested in quality. I’ve always wanted the best machine for the job. Better not to buy at all than buying something that isn’t going to meet our quality standard”. Already familiar with Homag quality because of his existing machinery, William had no hesitation opting for John’s suggestion of Homag’s 1870FSC. It helped that Jacks had a machine in stock, so he could satisfy customers requiring airTec edgebanding immediately.

The 1870FCS offers a high level of production with a correspondingly high level of finishing quality. Capable of working with EVA, PU and airTec then it’s an extremely versatile machine. The top driven V belt increases workpiece stability while parts are being processed, resulting in a more consistent high-quality finish, and a significant advantage with smaller workpieces. There’s multi-profile tooling on all trimming and scraping units, and matching tooling radii for tape thicknesses, 1mm and 2mm tape. Feed speed is up to 20m/m, with the workpiece gap optimisation increasing output by up to 25%. Both William and John are big fans of the blue LED lights too! William has never been in a rush to grow the company, although from two to twenty-six suggests he’s getting something right. “We’re certainly not the cheapest company in the market” he says, “and we don’t want to be the most expensive. Our prices are fair, and with the quality we produce then the customers will come.” And come they have. Popular Kitchens is busy, with one property development company alone providing them with upwards of 120 kitchen orders per year. “We have good relationships

The 1870 FCS offers a high level of production with a correspondingly high level of finishing quality. Capable of working with EVA, PU and airTec it’s an extremely versatile machine. with several housing companies, large and small,” says William. “Then we get quite a few customers via word-of-mouth. We stopped advertising four years ago as we have more than enough work. So much in fact that we’ve never got around to building our showroom. But with the changing expectations of the young people these days - they want to come and view something – then I think we’re going to have to get around to building it eventually.”

Kitchens now use the “smaller 1600” Homag edgebander for carcass work, while the 1870 does all the visible doors and panels. “The1600 is still providing excellent results” says William. “Now we not only have airTec capability, but a far greater capacity in the workshop too”. Just one operator covers both machines and is often to be found on the Weeke CNC as well – with this often running up to 10 hours a day. However, it’s not the workshop that is the bottleneck. “Even with 8 in design and sales it’s often the office that’s the source of any hold ups” laugh William. “We run PRO100 software and can generate the designs quickly. But with customers changing their minds, not confirming the job, changing the designs – there are so many reasons why we can’t send a job to production!” But when the jobs get to production, the latest Homag edgebanding technology is ready to maintain the quality result that Popular Kitchens trade on.

Upgrading an edgebander usually means a trade in or second-hand sale. But Popular

Comprehensive range, perfect closing action A trusted name since 1926 Salice have been a trusted name since 1926 when Arturo Salice set up as a distributor of Italian made and imported furniture hardware. They’ve been manufacturing concealed hinges and related accessories for more than 60 years, since 1957, when Arturo Salice registered his first patent. Salice subsidiaries are located in Germany, France, the UK, Canada and Spain. All production takes place in Novedrate, Italy in a 60,000m2 facility. Arturo Salice has held ISO9001 accreditation for Quality Management since 1993, and ISO14001 accreditation for Environmental Management since 1998. Deceleration is powered by twin silicone-oil dampers.

Prioritising industry-led installation solutions Salice prioritise simplification of installation, increasing installation speed and advancing technical solutions and pride themselves on being versatile and committed to developing ideas in response to specific requests from customers, large and small, from around the world. It’s this commitment to technological development, innovation and excellent performance that has led to the development of the Salice Silentia+ range.

the 1st generation of Silentia, with identical dimensions and shape, the decelerating effect is now powered by twin silicone-oil dampers, housed in the hinge cup. Plus Silentia+ is equipped with a discreet switch to adjust the deceleration mechanism. The switch enables the closing speed of any size or shape of door to be easily and perfectly adjusted. So, you can adjust the strength of the soft close to suit your specific door weight.

Advanced deceleration Silentia+ delivers 2nd generation soft close mechanism integrated into the hinge cup plus the most advanced deceleration system available; a consistently perfect closing action across a truly comprehensive range of hinges for doors of all sizes, weights and applications. Consistent with the aesthetics of

Streamlined Salice Salice’s soft close mechanism is in the bowl of the hinge, so a streamlined arm is retained, making for a more attractive aesthetic after installation. Advantages after installation Salice is retains the 2mm gap between door and cabinet carcass when you adjust the hinge; making adjustment a one-step rather than a multi-step process. And, for those occasions where you need to add a restrictor clip to prevent doors opening too far, the Salice restrictor clip can be added without uninstalling the hinge. That makes for a much quicker and easier job.

* Fit guarantees all products from manufacture or material fault, for the life of the furniture or cabinetry into which they are installed.

“Before purchase we went to the market and looked at other options but couldn’t go past the previous performance of SCM and the after sales support from John Fleet and the team at Machines R Us.

accord adds to the SCM family When MWF Manufacturing in Christchurch decided they needed a dedicated machine for solid wood processing and profiling it was always likely that they would choose an SCM machine to do the job given the company’s good experience with SCM machinery in the past two decades. They subsequently purchased an SCM Accord 25 fx 5 x axis pod and rail CNC in June last year and have found it has improved both capacity and product range while providing room for further growth. In 2002 MWF Manufacturing owner and Managing Director Gary Altenburg purchased an existing joinery shop and turned it into a manufacturing business which today employs around 30 people and has a reputation for quality and premium service in the design and manufacture of bespoke kitchens and high end commercial fit outs.

process than its current nesting machines allowed. “We needed a machine that was set for solid timber work, bespoke joinery and profiling much of which we were currently doing either with more traditional machines or manually, a lot more laborious and time consuming than we knew it could be with a purpose specific CNC,” says Gary.

Since the beginning the company has literally been running on SCM machinery with a workshop full of both new and traditional SCM machines. A Class Si400ep and a L’invincibile six dimension saw, a Sandya 7S wide belt sander, a Cyflex HP vertical boring machine, a Pratika and a Record nesting machine, along with a Minimax edge sander, T120 spindle moulder, S50 thicknesser, F45 buzzer and a S45 bandsaw. All carry the SCM badge and have served the company well over that time.

“Before we bought the Accord we went to the market and looked at other options but couldn’t go past the previous performance of SCM and the after sales support from John Fleet and the team at Machines R Us. Our first SCM nesting machine has served us well for the last 12 years and continues to be a daily driver of the business. We also have decades of experience with SCM machinery within our company staff and we wanted to continue to benefit from that. We wanted the reliability and quality that SCM have always provided us with and the ability to absorb future growth, the SCM Accord 25 fx 5 x axis gives us all that.”

Recently the company decided it needed more flexibility and greater versatility in its manufacturing

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 66

“It has greatly improved our speed and accuracy and the fifth axis has given us the ability to increase our range and the variety of design options we can offer our clients. The complex one-off solutions we can provide with this machine suit the bespoke nature of our work well.” “John and his team have always been there when needed, fast and reliable which is the key when operating a machine of this type and we are continuing to work with them to develop our skill set and ensure that we use it and its features to the fullest including the Maestro software which has some design modules we are yet to explore.” “A year on from purchase we are well please with the performance the Accord has delivered - it is designed for the type of work we do and does it well,” says Gary.

The worktable with direct transmission system and independent drive units, assures the complete set-up in seconds. With simple and quick replacement of clamps and suction cups through the exclusive rapid locking device.

New Zealand’s squarest doors Yes, that’s a rather bold claim to make! However, HOW things have changed in our factory over the last few months to bring us to this point. We know how important it is for you to have consistently square doors, and so we’ve spent the last year fully automating our edgebander to ensure more consistency and accuracy. Thanks to the automatic sizing and squaring, the doors will come out the right size and be square (even if, for some reason, they were cut the wrong size or out of square). We love what this automation has done for us in our ease of production, and look forward to the Christmas build-up this year. Want to see the Edgebot in action for yourself ? Pop in and say hi next time you’re in the area! We’re going nuts for Coconut – and so are you! We’ve got a new Acrymatte white colour: Acrymatte Coconut is fast becoming the popular kid on the block, with all the fresh, tropical vibes about it. It’s warm, but not too warm, and it’s white, but not-your-dentist-office. There’s a reason it’s well loved: it’s practically perfect! #allaboutthetexture We believe that what a product feels like is just as important as what it look like – after all, the sense of touch and look go hand in hand. Timbalook and Lookcrete not only have the right look, but they also have the right texture, to create the perfect look and feel. Synchronized like a swimmer As a kid, I always loved watching the synchronized swimming in the Olympics. (Who am I kidding? I still love it!) It’s mind boggling how long they can hold their breath. They move in coordination with each other, perfectly choreographed, and it just looks like it was meant to be. Just like those swimmers move up and down and in coordination with each other, the picture and texture in Timbalook is synchronized together, to create a natural look and feel. The texture in Timbalook is different than any other woodgrain melamine products in NZ. The texture is deeper and wider, following the knots and open texture of the grain. The texture is uniquely designed for each different colour structure to replicate the printed picture and create an authentic look and feel. This re-creates the look of a wire-brushed veneer, at a much lower cost. Lydia Posthuma

The key challenge was the need to fashion each tread individually to a template with no two being the same, and each being seen on all four faces. With no traditional stringers, each tread was provisioned to allow for concealed steel brackets which in turn allowed the tread to be fixed in place.

joinery skills and collaboration This year’s Supreme Award comes from well known Auckland joinery firm McNaughton Windows & Doors: a truly impressive staircase made from 28 stained French Oak stair treads to a template curved stairwell utilising true joinery skills. Dave Cunningham from McNaughtons comments. “The initial concept drawings supplied by the architect formed the basis for us to then work closely with the builder to create a practical, albeit sophisticated stair tread design. With no traditional stringers, each tread was provisioned to allow for concealed steel brackets which in turn allowed the tread to be fixed into place. The key challenge was the need to fashion each tread individually to a template with no two being the same.”

“The treads were formed initially with a substrate of laminated 100mm x 50mm pine boards before being clashed with 100mm to 300mm x 25mm French Oak in a fanlike fashion starting with a consistently placed central board to create a uniform pattern. The treads were mitred on all faces creating the seamless appeal of no visible end or cross grain,” explains Dave. Each tread, being unique in effect presented a technical challenge for McNaughtons. Each tread end was required to be radius machined to match the curvature of the wall on one edge to flat on the other with formed stringer to allow for consistent and aesthetic clearances. The CNC programming and machining required totalled some 95 hours with another 320 hours of bespoke assembly work using traditional joinery skills.

“Each tread can be seen on all four faces creating zero tolerance for error” explains Dave “and combined with the challenge of the clear finish and mitred joints, it made the ultimate result quite breathtaking.” The whole staircase is held together with a steel curved frame laminated in French Oak lowered through the roof above. This was created by the builder. “The project was the culmination of a close working relationship with the builder Phil Leitch from PSL Construction, to ensure the steel stairwell frame was just right and perfectly matched our work on the treads and overall design,” comments Dave. In an overview the stairs were part of a far larger job. Dave notes his company also produced all the interior doors with more than 100

door openings along with some single door leafs, pairs, sliders, pocket doors which bought the total to about 150 all of which were 3m high and all French Oak panel doors with mouldings and all polished to match the floor and stairs. “We also produced all the interior adjustable shutters so the stairs, although a stunner, were only part of a far larger picture.” comments Dave.

MJN McNaughton Ltd, KLC Ltd & Koppers partnering to advance the timber industry

Mullion

Narrow Jamb

Teaming up with KLC and using Koppers Micropro® wood treatment technology, McNaughton’s are able to produce exterior window and door profiles which are environmentally friendly, user friendly and have a longer product life.

How often do we talk about growing the market share of timber windows and doors through improved products that are competitively priced? This combination of market leading companies are paving the way by maximising the design longevity and strengths of timber and eliminating previously conceived pitfalls to bring a new breed of timber to market. Each with a steadfast belief in New Zealand locally manufactured timber products, have played a critical part in the launch of timber profiles for use in timber window and door manufacturing. The process starts with KLC. Based on a 5 hectare site in the Kaingaroa Forest 50km south east of Rotorua, and with some 120 staff, KLC is one of the largest and most innovative and efficient volume timber remanufacturers in the country and a world leader in Pinus Radiata timber optimisation. Simply, KLC excels at producing

fingerjointed, laminated or moulded timber product. This along with KLC’s subsequent treatment plant allows KLC products a point of difference while their 6 kiln drying capacity allows large product volume to pass through the facility. Under license from Koppers Performance Chemicals New Zealand, nearly eight years ago KLC launched its new micronised copper Micropro ® treatment plant in response to the ever increasing demand for treatments that excluded such nasties as chrome and arsenic typically found in most other H.3 timber treatments. MicroPro®, a waterbased treatment which utilises micronised copper, is placed under high pressure, deeply penetrating the timber and although more expensive, the environmental, longevity and reduced dust exposure benefits outweigh any extra cost. While KLC has been supplying its unique Generation 2 MicroPro® treated exterior cladding system

Architectural Sill

for many years, partnering with MJN McNaughton Ltd, has provided its products with an exterior window and door application. McNaughton had been seeking an enhanced and more environmentally friendly supplier of treated NZ pine and subsequently teamed up with KLC and the Koppers Micropro® wood treatment technology. The MicroPro® benefits didn’t stop there: it provides for better corrosion resistance for code approved fasteners and hardware and below ground contact as well. MicroPro®, with its comparatively lighter, more natural timber appearance, also has improved painting and staining qualities and has been tested and approved for aluminium contact. “Given the above, and combined with the environmental benefits, reduced staff exposure, and a 50 year treatment warranty, it was an easy decision to change to the KLC product”. Explains Andrew Riley, General Manager at McNaughton’s.

The association between these companies has recently culminated in the offering of timber profiles compliant to the JMF NZS4211 suite to other joiners wishing to maximise the same opportunity. These profiles can be ordered via the email address below. The offering comes with the added benefit of profiles that have never previously been available and are available ex Auckland.

“It’s a no brainer” So says Ken Caldwell, Director of Nicks Timber Joinery. He’s discussing his decision to buy a briquetting press to go with their Felder RL350 Clean-Air extractor. “The combination of the RL extractor and a briquetting press has resulted in a 90% reduction in our volume of waste. That’s huge. It was an easy decision.” Just back from a measure up on Waiheke Island, Ken explains what lead him to invest in the combination of a Felder extractor and briquetting press. “Prior to the RL machine we were running big bag units attached to each machine. We were forever emptying dust bags. After a couple of hours running the Weinig Cube (Nicks purchased the first Cube in Australasia) then we’d have to stop and empty several large bags of dust and chips. And if you got any leaks then there’d be dust everywhere. When I think back to the production time lost while we were emptying bags, sweeping up … the 4 – 8 hours a week wasted has gone and now it only takes few minutes to wheel collection bins holding 1.2m3 out and back in.” Pre-Felder RL, there was also the problem of the space required to locate the old bag units adjacent to each machine. “We had a lot of valuable workshop space taken up by our bag extraction units” says Ken. While their workshop is large, Nicks has a lot of machinery, so having the RL350 unit against the wall and ducting running to the machines means they’ve freed up a lot of floor space. So much in fact they’ve found room for a nearly 9-metre long five-axis Format-4 CNC machine. That’s a story for another day. In 1991, Nicks Timber grew out of what remained of G Nicks and Son – a third-generation Takapuna based business. Pre-war it was one of the original timber yards on Auckland’s North Shore. The company never recovered from the 1987 crash, so facing

the prospect of no job, Ken and two colleagues clubbed together to buy and rebrand as ‘Nicks Timber Joinery Ltd’ (NTJ). In 2003 ‘Nick’s Components and Accessories’ was split off and managed separately. Twenty-eight years later the two companies are still side by side, only now they’re located further north, in Silverdale. NTJ is renowned across the wider Auckland region for specialised solutions for solid timber doors and windows. Catering to the top end of Auckland’s residential building and renovation market, Ken and his team are responsible for framing some of the most expensive and expansive views in the Harbour City. Their reputation for quality keeps them busy: monitoring where their work originated from showed in any given month 85% came from existing clients, 14% from referrals and just 1% from other sources. For Ken the old problem of dust in the air is also a personal one. Earlier in his career he’d developed asthma from the Cedar dust he worked with. He’d have to wear a full facemask with filters, all day, every day in the workshop. Therefore, investing in technology that would keep the workshop air clean wasn’t just a compliance decision, but an ethical one too. “Clean air is good for morale” he says. “A better work environment means happier staff. Me included. Staff enjoy their environment and turnover is low - they work more efficiently, and they stay.” Felder’s RL series of Clean-Air extractors come in a variety of sizes and prices, but all offer dust emissions of less than 0.1 mg/m3. Unlike conventional extractors the fan is positioned at the clean air side, creating a negative pressure throughout and prevents any dust escaping. Options include a jet-filter cleaning system to continuously clean the filters, automatic dry-powder fire suppressant, automatic start for up to 8 machines, and configuration to fit a briquetting press in place of the collection bin.

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 78

Ken Caldwell in front of his Felder extractor – the briquette machine can be seen at the bottom in blue. Top right:the briquettes the machines produce.

Fitting the briquetting press under their Felder RL350 was a simple decision. “Something that massively reduces the volume of waste, saves emptying the hopper, and gives us a product we can use or sell – what’s not to like?” says Ken. “The briquets that come out burn really well. Currently we give them away rather than sell them - because we’re not organised to prove our waste stream can’t contain treated timber shavings. Untreated briquettes burn really hot, so well in fact you can almost light them without kindling. Our cost of waste has dropped significantly and emptying the extractor is now a dust-free process.” As an early adopter, Ken – and by association Jacks, who supplied the units – have learned a few lessons along the way. Perhaps the key one has been the need to hold spare filters to avoid the downtime

during the filter cleaning process. “In the past we’ve arranged the cleaning to be done during the Christmas break,” explains Ken. “However, as we get busier this process needs to be done more frequently so a spare set would give us flexibility around the timing of this.” Another lesson has been to be prepared for the weight of the briquettes. “They’re heavy!” says Ken. “While the volume of your waste goes down significantly, you’ve got to be prepared for how much they weigh.” NTJ are currently using an old chemical storage cage - 1.2 x 1.0 x 1.0m - on wheels to collect the briquettes, making moving them out of the workshop a simple process. A busy workbook, skilled staff, and a great reputation means Nicks Timber Joinery remains efficient and successful. Ken’s willingness to embrace new technology supports the company’s wholistic approach to competitive workmanship balanced alongside a healthy working environment. It’s easy to see why the company has the excellent reputation it deserves: Nicks Timber Joinery is an example of the success and longevity that comes from well-planned investment, a responsibility to staff and sustainability of renewable resources, and top-quality service for customers.

The optional swivelling unit, allows you to swivel workpieces by 90° with the push of a button, letting the user swivel workpieces weighing up to 120 kg securely and ergonomically. For airtight non-porous workpieces, the additionally available venting unit enables the user to quickly and safely release the workpiece as required.

The lifting unit, operating unit, vacuum grippers and vacuum generator on the vacuum tube lifter JumboErgo can be configured according your specifications. The JumboErgo is characterized by its lifting unit, which contracts and extends when lifting and lowering the load. The large effective suction area maximises safe holding of the workpiece.

The benefits you can realise from the installation of a vacuum lifter include, increased productivity thanks to reduced handling and loading times, reduced requirement for multiple people to handle workpieces and secure, the minimization of downtime due to employee injury, damage-free gripping by using vacuum rather than sliding.

Supreme Kitchen Design winner Stefan Sonntag of Masterwoood Joinery

NKBA - kitchen & bathroom winners Last month, NKBA held their Excellence in Design Awards in Melbourne. Of the 78 entries received this year, 19 beautiful kitchens and bathrooms created by 15 of the most talented designers in the country were recognised. The 2019 NKBA Supreme Kitchen Design Award went to Stefan Sonntag of Masterwood Joinery for an incredible oriental and commercial-styled kitchen located in an alpine retreat in Lake Hayes, Queenstown. With clean, straight lines, natural materials and earthy tones, the kitchen is a paradise for the clients who are enthusiastic cooks. This passion is visible, from the cantilevered teppanyaki grill mounted in engineered stone, to the marble topped pastry island, self-contained coffee making area and commercial stainless-

steel kitchen extractor. Other luxury custom details include the traditional Japanese sliding screens that separate the kitchen from an informal dining and lounge area, to the stunning 2.25m tall by 3.25m long, six door glass fronted display cabinet for storing dishes and glassware. Winning not just the Supreme title, the breath-taking space won four other awards, including Creative Excellence Kitchen Design, the Kitchen Distinction $80k - $100k and the Southern Chapter Kitchen Recognition Award. Masterwood Joinery received Supreme Kitchen Manufacturer for their work on the space. Judges were unanimous in their decision, calling the kitchen an impressive design, worthy of the Supreme title. The 2019 NKBA Supreme B a t h r o o m Aw a r d w e n t t o Michelle Quinn of Lume Design in Christchurch for her work on a dramatic master ensuite.

Material and palette play a major role in this contemporary bathroom, with timber look and pearl coloured tiles selected to complement the use of concrete and oxidised metals. The bathroom includes a large double shower with twin rain heads, a double vanity and custom-designed black towel rails. Lighting has been integral to the flair of the design. The clients wanted lighting that was both effective, but also fun and accentuated the drama and detail of the space. The timber feature tile is lit from wall to wall to highlight the tonal changes and texture, while the low-level lighting under the vanity is used to create soft, ambient light to move throughout the space at night. The judging panel were wowed by this incredible and exciting design. “From the minute you walk in, it has real wow factor with so many memorable elements. Through dramatic lighting, the designer

has created a space that highlights the tile texture in a sophisticated and outstanding way. The creative mirror detailing is stunning and just adds to this accomplished and truly unique bathroom design.” In addition to the supreme title, this stunning bathroom earned Michelle Quinn awards for First Time Entrant, Lighting Design, Creative Excellence Bathroom Design and the Canterbury Chapter Bathroom Recognition Award. The manufacturer of the bathroom, Lyall Park Joinery, received Supreme Bathroom Manufacturer. Above all, one designer stood out from the pack at the 2019 NKBA Excellence in Design Awards, receiving an astonishing twelve awards, including the coveted title of 2019 Designer of The Year. That designer was Davinia Sutton of Detail by Davinia Sutton from Christchurch.

“Never stop sharing your knowledge”

Winning formul There are many pluses in getting involved in formally training your people including developing your workers’ skills to meet your standards, investing in growing your business and the industry, increasing your workers’ self-confidence, in naming a few. But the formula for being successful at training may be different for every business owner. We spoke to two experts Anthony Neustroski and Paul Ingram who have both been training apprentices for many years and asked them to share their winning formulas.

BCITO President Greg Durkin with the Years Most Promising Apprentice Sam Watts.

That’s sage advice to industry from this year’s Most Promising Apprentice, and winner of the Ernie Jelinek Cup, Sam Watts of PDL Kitchens & Joinery in Invercargill. More than 200 people celebrated the success of their colleagues, peers and lifelong industry friends, at the NZ Master Joiners’ evening celebration for the annual awards. The event was held amongst a lifetime of automobile passion at the Bill Richardson Transport World, where even the least inclined couldn’t discount the architectural lines and craftsmanship of the Model Ts. Paul Lindsay, Sam’s employer, says, “Sam sets high standards and isn’t afraid to challenge himself. What impresses me the most is his passion for the trade. This year he took on the national skills challenge in Hamilton and trained like any athlete would for a national event, taking projects home to work on, practicing over and over at SIT in the weekends. Sam is a southern problem solver. He’s at his best when there’s a puzzle to be solved or a technical project requiring an inventive mind to craft the how then the do. But what really ticks the box for us at PDL is Sam’s all-inclusive nature – he’s a real pleasure to stand beside eight hours a day five days a week.” What stood out for this year’s judge was Sam’s clean sweep, scoring ten out of ten for problem solving, critical thinking, practical skills, attitude and attendance by three independent parties. Also, his disciplined commitment and pure sacrifice to achieve - demonstrated by gaining entry to compete at the National Skills challenge and a 3,026km round trip. JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 82

When BCITO people caught up with Sam and his partner at the 2019 awards, they were surprised to discover that, as a child, Sam dreamed of becoming a musician, but the concept of working with his hands and crafting from wood won out. Sam says, “It’s awesome doing a job you enjoy, learning and earning at the same time. I look forward to every new day on the workshop floor, growing my skill set and learning different things from the guys at work. I attribute where I’m at today to my boss Paul, the team I work with and my parents who have always been very supportive, encouraging me to be the very best version of me. If I could share one tip with employers who formally train, I would say be patient, give your apprentice permission to test and stretch themself and never stop sharing your knowledge.” When asked how he would describe a ‘true joiner’. Sam says, “someone who can think on their feet and problem solve on the fly.” A fitting description that, curiously enough, sums up how others perceive him – exceptional. 

Congratulations to all this year’s NZ Master Joiners’award winning apprentices and their employers: Tyler Burgess of Kitchen Zone, Gisborne; Logan Van Der Meer of Molloy Joinery, Napier; Nikolay Kidik of Total Timba Joinery, Auckland; Mathew McLellan of Firman Joinery, Oamaru; and Firman Joinery recipient of the Gordon Caulfield Memorial Trophy as employer of the apprentice with the highest scoring points in the over two years category.

Outgoing Master Joiners President, Anthony Neustroski of Maymorn Joiners Ltd in Upper Hutt says, “I believe what you need first is to have a democratic and inclusive leadership style. I like everyone to know what’s happening, when, how and why. Ask for your people’s input before you make decisions, then they feel included and involved. When it comes to training, the work environment and atmosphere is paramount to progression. Fairness, a happy workplace and equal treatment help to grow a positive team who are keen to progress. “Training is always progressive, supervised and repetitive at Maymorn. Thoroughly learning the basics means you have to practise your skills on certain tasks over and over to become proficient. Once the basics have been grasped, then our apprentices move on to more difficult or different projects. We get them interested in the work by explaining what is being made, where it goes, its purpose, and how the finish and correct size might affect the outcome. Only when you are aware of the entire process can you understand what you are contributing to the end result, so this is key to motivation. “If our apprentices are ready and want a challenge, they will get it, and I always ask them to bring me a solution as well as a question. “Training is essential for the future of any industry; ‘buy NZ made’ only works if you can make it! We’re proud when our apprentices make it to the finish line. I’m always pleased to have given someone the same opportunity that I was given, and I remind them they can take their skills around the world if they want to.” Incoming Master Joiners President, Paul Ingram of Lee Brothers Joinery in Rotorua shares his passion for industry training. “To foster and grow teamwork, it’s important to develop apprentices’ awareness of the ‘links


las for training apprentices in the chain’ that come before and after their part in a job and encourage them to be considerate of the work going on around them. That might mean that different people need different messages, so you’ve got to stay aware of that all the time. A great way to inspire people to learn is to let the other people around them be the inspiration and asking them what they want to learn is a good place to start. Apprentices make great future trainers because they understand the path having travelled it recently themselves. “We’re behind the 8-ball in Joinery when it comes to training. We’ve had lots of changes, technology, automation, learning styles, career aspirations and expectations, to name a few. We have an opportunity to showcase Joinery as a ‘rockstar’ industry with all the whizz-bang toys that blend well with traditional and creative skills. We need more young people saying to Mum and Dad, ‘I want to be a joiner’. “To be an effective leader, you need to listen, inspire and challenge your team and those three actions are especially true when you’re training people. Our commitment to industry training means being an ambassador for our

trade and promoting it at every opportunity. Training people properly is paramount, apprentices are not here to make tea, sweep floors and run the CNC for four years, they’re here to learn, and they need to be taught well. “With targeted training content that matches modern joinery manufacture and a good balance between on-job and specialist provider training, we can provide rewarding careers within our industry. Providing apprentices with opportunities to use their talents is part of my style. Throwing them in the deep end to challenge them and then following with the life preserver (if necessary) is a great way to grow people who know how to think for themselves and problem-solve.

Outgoing Master Joiners President Anthony Neustroski of Maymorn Joiners Ltd in Upper Hutt (left) with incoming President Paul Ingram of Lee Brothers Joinery in Rotorua.

“Joinery is an industry made up of good people, who are down to earth and take pride in their work. Helping train the next generation is rewarding, and it’s also a great motivating tool. Because of training, our people give back by mentoring others and are focused on continuous improvement.” 

Steering a course Ian Featherstone

What are you selling ? products, services, brand, reliability

I

n the last issue I spoke about how to calculate the cost per hour a business requires to recover all the costs in the business, before it makes a profit. Another area which I believe the industry is undervaluing itself and leaving money on the table, is in sales and in particular; selling the value of the services it provides. Too often we get stuck talking about the price of the product and overlook the real reason why people chose which business they deal with. It’s because of trust and the feeling that their emotional needs will be taken care of, the risks will be managed during the project AND of course, products will be made and supplied. Remember; “People do business with people, they know, like and trust”. Its useful to design your sales / design process to include steps that lead to conversations that build trust and then “re-play” elements of these in your proposals (try and not use the word “quote”) that lead to an emotional contract in the customers mind. If I asked most business in this industry what they do, they jump straight to “making products”,

s u c h a s k i t c h e n s , j o i n e r y, shopfitting, furniture etc. It’s true for a small number of you, that you mainly “make stuff”, but most companies do much more than that. Most of you work in, or own businesses that provide professional services such as design, project management, subcontractor management and other advice including interior colours, flooring, lighting and other interior design related services. I’ve noticed that some companies start providing these services as part of their work without considering the value of this. Sometimes spending hours adding extra value to the client, but not getting paid for it. I recommend that you discuss this with your team and agree what is a “reasonable amount of time” to spend on sales for certain types of work. For example; • How will you communicate to a homeowner what your process is? What services are included? And excluded? • How many steps and hours could there be in the design process?

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 84

• How many visits or design hours will be included? and at what point will there be additional design or project management fees? • To what extent will you liaise, co-ordinate or manage other subcontractors on clients behalf? • What is an appropriate fee or hourly rate for design and project management services? Once you have agreement then start to include in conversations and proposals; the amount of design effort / project management hours you will be including to achieve the client’s goal. Point our that what you are providing is a unique product designed for them, that fits and works in their space. This takes considerable time, effort and skill, which you have built up over many years. It takes several years to become a tradesperson and longer to become a master, the same applies to the design, project management and ability to problem solve and think on the fly. Try and think of words to describe the way in which you will create the solution for your client, including your sales / consultation process. The way in which you “just take care of things”.

After all, if the client really does just want a low cost product, there are plenty of imported or cut-price options, but most people don’t want that, they want someone, YOU, to provide a locally made quality product, wrapped up in an experience with people they trust and they call on again and again. Be brave, if some clients wont value what you do or offer, let them go and try DIY or a low cost operator, they will come back.

education to employment This year a big focus for the New Zealand Sign & Display Association was to raise the industry standards and awareness of our industry by creating a platform for public, other industries, employers, employees and students to learn & benefit from, by launching the new Signee Programme - Education to Employment. This new initiative was released to the public and industry in May 2018 at the NZ Sign Expo and since has attracted much interest within the industry and high schools. In brief the programme layout will develop over three stages. Stage One, comprising the basic learning content and resources for the pre-vocational training manual, which ultimately forms the grassroots of Signee. Stage two will contain specialist courses for those whom have completed the pre-vocational course and may want to focus on one specific area of sign making, or for those already in the industry and want to upskill their knowledge and skill sets. Lastly Stage Three will become the NZ Sign Training Qualification encompassing all of the above to form the six pillars of the industry represented in design, application, traditional, fabrication, illumination & installation. The development of this training arm, Signee has been keeping the executive board of the NZ Sign & Display Association very busy, very much so that they have recently appointed a Training and Communications Officer, Carol King. Carol will be ensuring that the development of this programme is completed to a high standard encompassing all general basic knowledge on sign making aspects as well as ensuring that the expectations of industry standards are met by developing a Signee manual. The Association also sees great importance in aligning all Signee training with the current assessment only provider, Competenz, as the Association believes that the pre-vocational training course will bridge the gap between high school students and apprenticeships. Not only will the Association be creating more awareness of the sign making industry, but it will be future

proofing the industry by offering the young learners a snap shot of the very diverse industry of sign making. This programme will be launched into the high schools, firstly in Canterbury and then progressively throughout the South Island, and then finally New Zealand by the end of 2019. Overall, Signee - Education to Employment, along with the successful development of the new unit standards for sign making apprenticeships will add value, raise industry standards nationwide and make the industry future ready for the young talent that will ultimately benefit from the more improved qualifications and training knowledge provided for our modern sign shops.

Due Process Geoff Hardy

JOINERS - are you builders, or building materials manufacturers? T

here is a whole range of things you can make that are intended to end up on a building site. At one end of that range are simple things like fasteners, adhesives, tape, insulation, wrap, primer, concrete, steel reinforcing and timber. At the other end of the range are highly-engineered, complex structures like kitset or transportable buildings, modular homes, pre-fabricated framing, panels and roofs, and complete kitchen units. No-one could seriously suggest that manufacturing nails and screws is building work. On the other hand, no-one could seriously suggest that manufacturing a transportable home is not. The interesting question, is where do you draw the line between those two extremes? When does manufacturing building materials become building work, and vice versa? The question is important because different laws apply to you, depending on which category you fall under. And it is important to know which laws apply to you, so that you can comply with them. Otherwise you run the risk of being prosecuted by the authorities or being at the mercy of your customer’s lawyer if a dispute has arisen. So this article is a guide to which category you fall under, and which laws you have to comply with (or, for that matter, which laws you can use to your advantage). The Shadowclad case One big court battle that illustrates how important the distinction is, is the Minister of Education’s claim against Carter Holt Harvey in respect of the product shadowclad that has allegedly

failed in 833 schools throughout the country. Everyone agreed that the manufacture and supply of cladding sheets and cladding systems was not, in itself, building work. That meant that Carter Holt was not subject to the extensive duties and responsibilities that apply to property owners and builders under the Building Act. But there was one provision in the Building Act that Carter Holt wanted to take advantage of. That is the “longstop” limitation provision in section 393 which says that if you commence court proceedings “relating to building work” more than 10 years after the wrongful act or omission occurred, you are out of luck. If the Minister of Education’s claim against Carter Holt related to “building work” then a lot of those claims would be out of time. Unfortunately for Carter Holt the Supreme Court ruled that the proceedings related to “negligent manufacture and the supply of defective products”, not to “building work”. Does that let joiners off the hook? Yo u m i g h t t h i n k t h a t t h a t resolves the issue, and that every manufacturer or supplier of building products from taps and door handles right up to kitset homes is immune from the provisions of the Building Act and cannot claim the protection of the 10 year longstop. That would leave the manufacturers and merchants subject only to the law of contract, the law of negligence, the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, and some random statutes such as the Fair Trading Act 1986 and the Contract & Commercial Law Act 2017.

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 86

But not so. Shadowclad is a sheet of exterior cladding, not a complex prefabricated building component. Mass production of basic products may not be “building work” but manufacturing a range of engineered functional components is far more likely to be, especially if it is customised for a specific job. If a product is manufactured to order rather than for inventory, then it is likely to fall on the “building work” side of the dividing line rather than the “building product” side. The Supreme Court in the Carter Holt case did concede that things like kitset homes could fall on the building work side of the line, but it would depend on the facts in each case. The definition of “building work” in the Building Act is the starting point. This means work “for or in connection with the construction, alteration, demolition, removal of a building”. Logically the work needs to be done in connection with a specific building, which is why the manufacture and supply of taps and door handles would not be covered. However supplying complex joinery or components from a fixed range or suite of designs is still likely to be building work if they are made to specification – even if it is just to the dimensions required by the customer. What if you are not a manufacturer? If what you do is “building work” then apart from the laws applying to manufacturers and merchants I referred to above, you would also be subject to the Construction Contracts Act 2002 and the Building Act 2004. Being subject to the Construction Contracts

Act is not such a bad thing but being subject to the Building Act might be. For example, section 17 of the Building Act says that all building work must comply with the building code. And section 40 says that you must not carry out building work except in accordance with a building consent (there are certain exceptions, mostly set out in Schedule 1 of the Act). Even though the primary responsibility for obtaining a consent lies with the owner, technically you are liable if your work required a consent and one wasn’t issued. Furthermore, section 84 says that all restricted building work must be carried out or supervised by a licensed building practitioner. Restricted building work is basically work that is critical to the structural integrity or weathertightness of a residence, and it includes design as well as construction. Licensed designers have to submit a design certificate with the building consent application and licensed builders have to provide a record of work on completion. Both can be disciplined by their respective disciplinary bodies if they put a foot wrong. Then there are the consumer rights and remedies in Part 4A of the Building Act, which only apply if you are doing building work (not just designing) in relation


to a household unit, where the price is $30,000 or more, and you are not a subcontractor. If those rights and remedies apply then you have to provide your client with a checklist and a disclosure statement before you sign them up, you have to use a written building contract that says certain things, and you have to hand over a maintenance and insurance manual at the conclusion of the project (regardless of how much the price was). Finally, certain 10year warranties are implied into your contract with the homeowner as well as an additional 12-month defect remedy. Subsequent owners can enforce those against you and the presumption is that you are in the wrong unless you prove otherwise. Other relevant laws Even if you are not doing building work, the Building Act now contains section 14G which is widely assumed to impose duties on manufacturers or suppliers. It applies if you manufacture or supply a building product, and you state that it will, if installed correctly, comply with the code. If so, you are responsible for ensuring that it does. However, section14G is largely meaningless because of section 14A. That says that section 14G is only an outline, it is only for guidance, you can contract out of it, and it is not intended to add to your existing responsibilities one iota.

Act. It contemplates building something to be fixed to the ground - including manufacturing to order, prefabricating “customised” components, or installing fittings but logically for a specific project, not for mass production. If the Construction Contracts Act applies to you then you can use the “payment claims” procedure to extract payment from your customers but you need to be wary of them from your subcontractors. You can resolve disputes with your customers or subcontractors using the adjudication system, which is a low-cost, fast dispute resolution method that is unique to the building industry. And in commercial projects and some residential projects, retentions withheld from you by your clients have to be held in trust, but you need to do the same thing with retentions you are withholding from your subcontractors.  Geoff Hardy has 44 years’ experience as a commercial lawyer and is a partner in the Auckland firm “Martelli McKegg”.

This article is not intended to be relied upon as legal advice.

Finally, there is the Construction Contracts Act 2002. That applies if you are party to a “construction contract”, which is a contract for carrying out “construction work”. The definition of construction work is broader than that of building work in the Building

STATE OF THE INDUSTRY Reports from Branch Presidents August 2019

AUCKLAND/NORTHLAND Auckland/Northland has remained reasonably steady over the winter months with some very mixed reports from our Auckland joiners. It would be fair to say that for the first time in about 3 years that the residential building sector, whether it be new builds or alterations / additions has slowed down a little for the solid exterior timber joinery market. Group housing builds are still going flat stick which is keeping the cabinet makers on there toes but as you all know these types of builds are all aluminium joinery, high volume for low profit. Winter time used to always bring a slight down turn in workloads, we have been so busy over the past couple of years that you tend to forget what happened historically. The Auckland Master Joiners membership is still continuing to grow, we continue to see applications for membership on a regular basis with most of the applications being accepted and welcomed to attend our regional meetings. We are continuing to get good numbers of members and associate members along to our meetings and we are finding that the individual associate members are more than happy to host our meeting and continue to sponsor the food and refreshments for each meeting, this seems to work well and spreads our meetings out around Auckland so occasionally some of the members do not need to travel so far all the time. Our social calendar is reasonably full and again most members are taking advantage of catching up for an afternoon of go-carting / fishing / golfing / a meal / always followed with a few refreshments and food and just a good old informal chat. This forms great comradeship and members are start to realise the value in being involved in an organisation like Master Joiners and they are not alone, our businesses are all very similar and we all face the same daily demands. Auckland / Northland is still facing a massive labour shortage in all trades, this really highlights the need to make training a priority. It really doesn’t make a difference whether you are a large or small company. It has been said before that an apprentice is the cheapest tool that you will ever buy. From my own experience an apprentice might

cost you for the first 12 months but from there on they should be producing and you should be starting to see a profit being driven for your investment. This has got to be a win for everybody, and yes once your apprentice has finished his qualifications he or she may decide to move on, that just opens the door to start all over again with another apprentice. NZS4211 is continuing to gain momentum in the Auckland region, sadly other local council’s have not fully adopted or enforced the need to prevent water penetration or air infiltration into our homes, NZS4211 is actually part of the building code whether it has be called for by the Architect or not. I believe that by now we should all be taking the lead on this and building compliant timber joinery whether it is specified or not. - David Cunningham CANTERBURY The winter months have seen members generally busy in a changing work environment.Clients seem to want more consultations and are overwhelmed with endless amount of choices, from layout to materials to hardware. Clients are now shopping around and everyone is busy quoting. All and all Christchurch is looking good but it has certainly slowed down from a couple of years ago. Christchurch has a long way to go. With still plenty to do to get our city back up and beyond where it once was. With the Official Cash rate doping to 1% and interest rates dropping it will interesting to see how this effects our industry. The winter weather has been kind to us rural folks, with most starting calving and lambing now. Hopefully spring has some great weather and the milk price steadily rises and lamb prices hold or do even better than last year. We need the rural sector to be strong for the rest of the county to thrive. It was a great conference in Invercargill and was enjoyed by all that attended. Conferences provide an excellent chance for members to network and build strong professional relationships. The awards dinner at the transport museum was something else. I don’t think you could get a better setting for the awards. Our push next year will be to get more members to the conference and presenting boards.

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 88

We are still getting good numbers of members and associate members of our local monthly meetings. Our recent social event, a movie night was a success and we look forward to hosting more social gatherings in the future. A big thanks to Blum for providing the refreshments. Nathan Busch CENTRAL The all year-round Christmas rush has continued in the central region with most members reporting steady to heavy workloads. Commercial has certainly died off but is being offset by the residential new and renovation market remaining strong. If interest rates continue to fall as they are, I can’t see this changing for a while. Staffing levels still remain an issue with the lack of trained Joiners out there and the continued trend of qualified Joiners to chase higher wages in other industries. I’m hearing more and more employers chasing overseas tradesman to fill the void here with some great results. Material delivery times haven’t been great which is obviously a reflection that there is high demand right across the country. We recently had a fire safety night at the Palmerston North fire station for members and their staff with a great turnout of over 40 people, this was a very informative night and I would recommend it to anyone, it’s always reassuring to know your staff will know what to do and how to properly handle an extinguisher if required. Our annual race day will be held the 1st weekend of November. This always attracts a good mix of members and suppliers. Great to see the Master Joiners executive are still making huge steps towards improving things for our members, many of you don’t get to see it but there is a huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to continually make improvements to the MJ structure – Go the All Blacks!!! Andrew Reilly NELSON / MARLBOROUGH The region is still very buoyant both Commercial and Domestically with a number of our members already closing their books for the year and starting to take orders for the new year. It appears we are in the retirement capital with 4 new large retirement villages under

construction. There are number of inquiries from around the country for trades people looking at moving into our region this could be a reflection of our Recruitment and Training web site as we have had 36,000 hits in recent months. Next week we have our first BCITO stage 3 block course along with stage one night classes that was held recently and earlier in the year we completed a stage 2 block course at NMIT. I would like to acknowledge Eddie, Huw from NMIT, Grant and the BCITO team along with Darren Evans and Ara who are running courses here in the Nelson Region. Thank you for supporting our region and our industry. For this to continue to happen we as MJ Members, business owners and Managers must keep the momentum up by considering the recruitment of apprentices. Just a quick note we have around 40 trainees in our region. This is approx 14% of trainees in the country for 2.2% of the population so thank you for everyone’s support including those mentioned earlier. There are some amazing students already signing up for next year’s pre trade course and once again a huge thank you to the NMIT management and funding team including Eddie and Huw for supporting our industry again. Recently we had a presentation from Nelson Pine industries about dust management as they have researched and developed safe practices and monitoring. This was very enlightening and we are very fortunate to have such a company in our region working with related industry knowledge that they are prepared to share - Myles Sellers OTAGO / SOUTHLAND Otago/Southland Master Joiners had the opportunity to play host to our National Conference in June 2019. Reportedly the best annual conference in history. Full credit and thanks to the organising committee and staff who facilitated the 4-day event. There were fantastic activities and social gatherings, it was great to have our Master Joiner colleagues in the area in the middle of winter – Invercargill and the Master Joiners turned it on. Congratulations to all attendees, award entrants and category winners, noting McNaughtons on winning the Supreme award for


2019 for fancy stairs. Locally, we had our bi-monthly meeting, in July, in Queenstown. Being a Friday, the meeting was well attended from across the region. Thanks to all who came along. New faces, good chat and dinner to follow. Unfortunately, I was on a course, so thank you to Peter Lou Harry Fisher for accommodating. Recently, local industry legends have represented Joinery at Careerfest Southland in Invercargill. The two-day event hosts Year 11, 12, 13 school students and introduces them to the industry. It is difficult to accurately gauge the impact this has on future apprenticeships, but a must-do event to ensure the trade is familiar to school leavers who are evaluating their future directions. Thanks to all who made themselves available. Winter months have slowed the rate of construction, but good trading conditions remain across the Otago and Southland regions. Residential consents and construction have remained strong, and there is a promising commercial pipeline in Dunedin, Invercargill, Queenstown and Wanaka. Investments are proceeding with several new hotels underway, Dunedin Hospital, Otago University, and a new town inside Invercargill. Spring and summer are approaching. High chance they will blur as we look forward to the “in by Christmas” conversation to begin. If you need a shoulder, our next local meeting will be in Dunedin on Tue 17/09. 5pm. Kensington. We can also look forward to a preChristmas dinner and drinks with all OS MJ colleagues and partners. - Peter Fisher TARANAKI With winter weather upon us, the wind and rain has been emphasised by the odd tornado or two! Our member’s are generally busy and some have heavy work loads in front of them. Lead times are stretching out to about the 6-8 week mark, so that’s a good sign. Customers are still expecting things on quick turn arounds, and at short notice. Generally there seems still to be a buzz around as houses are being built and with Kiwi Build kicking off in the Taranaki region now. I am noticing a trend where there are a lot more houses being moved off big sections, and divided into two or three smaller sections.It appears the big group home builders are snapping these up, and we are seeing this trend much more frequently. There seems to be a good mix of work around with both residential and commercial on the go, as well as new house builds. The education

sector is buoyant work keeping architects, builders and joiners busy. Taranaki is about to get its first Green school. The build will provide some challenges to traditional ways of working in our industries, providing some interesting challenges for the builder and joiners engaging in this project. It is with excitement that we anticipate the arrival of the two oil drill rigs that are due in Taranaki next year to start drilling offshore again. The trickle on effect will hopefully be positive for all industry in Taranaki. It is interesting to read that hydro-carbons are being touted as an option for energy. We will watch this space eagerly. News that the Dairy industry has its own challenges means it will be interesting to see whether farmers will stop spending, and only do the essential work on properties. This could potentially slow the market for us too. Again some members are struggling to find tradespeople, and with the Government shaking up the Polytechnics and apprenticeships schemes at the moment, it will be interesting to see what these changes will be, and how they might impact on our industry. The big question being, will it be viable for us to take on apprenticeships, to provide the labour and skilled people we desperately need to grow our industry, now and long term? Congratulations to Jones and Sandford for celebrating their 100th Anniversary this year. That is an incredible contribution to our region, with their apprentices being spread far and wide over those 100 years, impacting hugely in Taranaki. Enjoy your celebrations.In the lead up to Christmas we wish you well and hope that you are all frantically busy, so that you can truly appreciate your Festive Season once it finally arrives! - Bryan Frank WAIKATO / BAY OF PLENTY We held our AGM and Waikato/ Bay of Plenty Apprentice Awards on the same evening at WINTEC once again this year. Thanks again to Bruce Delaney and Sonya Mackenzie for the work they put in to make this evening a success. Congratulations to the up and coming apprentices for their efforts. Craig Mackie from Montage Kitchens & Joinery has taken on the Vice President, good on you Craig! The Registered Master Joiner Conference held in Invercargill was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended It was a great weekend - personal highlights included the trip to Stewart Island, “Dig this” (despite being pipped at the post by Mel for the fastest time hooking

the ducks in an excavator) and of course catching up with peers. There was the usual high standard of entries in the Master Joiners Awards and it was great to see the excellent work the apprentices had entered too. I think the petrolheads among us were agreed the venue for the Awards had to be one of the best ever! Great to see some of our regions members being recognised for their tireless contributions to our industry. Congratulations to Liam Wackrow on recieving the Owen WrightMemorial Trophy. Liam was obviously quite overwhelmed as he accepted this very meaningful award, before snapping back to his MC duties. The inaugural Ken Monk memorial award was presented to Bruce Delaney from Wintec. I believe Bruce to be a truly deserving recipient for his dedication to training. This years conference saw Paul Ingram elected as the National President of Master Joiners; like Anthony Nuestroski before him, Paul is brimming with enthusiasm and great ideas for the future of the Registered Master Joiners Association. Paul spoke about some of these ideas at the very well attended Waikato/Bay of Plenty meeting at the end of July in Cambridge. I believe we need to be open to this positive change - it can only benefit us all! It would appear that the “building boom” in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty region continues with new subdivisions still opening up. Wet weather has caused delays to some projects as it often does at this time of year. So with spring upon us in a couple of weeks, the Christmas countdown begins! - David Higgins WAITAKI All members in our area are currently experiencing busy times with good forward workflows. There is currently a lot of pricing to do and the lead up to Christmas is already looking busy, with some members reporting work into the new year. Several members report that they are looking towards employing new staff, with a focus on increasing staff numbers rather than replacing staff who are leaving. Five members would like to hire additional qualified tradespeople, however, given the shortage of tradespeople a large percentage of members are seeing apprenticeships as the only path to a qualified tradesperson. As such there is much more interest in the training of apprentices at the moment. With regards to apprenticeships, one member started a new apprentice at the beginning of the year,

several members are looking to hire apprentices soon, and another member recently employed two new staff members with the prospect that they may become future apprentices. Material supplies and delivery are generally good, however, some issues have been reported. These issues are timber arriving with forklift damage, knots in clear grade timber and delay with some hardware that suppliers offer but do not carry stock of in New Zealand. In general, clients are making payment when required. Members report a small number of slow payers but these are monitored and any outstanding accounts are followed up on.The need for members to be conscious about undertaking due diligence on new clients and contractors was raised. There is a positive feeling for the Waitaki area at present and the future outlook for our industry is looking good. There seems to be a lot going on and it looks like being another busy year for our members. - Gary Firman WELLINGTON Firstly I would like to congratulate Anthony on his term as national president and wish Paul all the best for the next two years.I would like to thank Paul for also making the trip down to wellington and joining Allison getting around a good number of our members and seeing what’s going on in our region and I hope our members were able to give you some feedback that will be useful to you in the future. Many of our local members have been enjoying another very busy year with some seeing a brief eased period around tax time but are now getting back into some decent workloads. With the end of the year looming, there will be a need of decent planning for the coming months and keeping a close eye on our own lead times as well as suppliers to hopefully keep all our customers happy and with that I wish all our members well for the lead up to the silly season. – Jeremy Patmore 

H& &S with Kathy Compliance

Reasonably practicable “Reasonably practicable” is a phrase that you hear bandied about a lot these days. This simple phrase lies at the heart of NZ’s Health and Safety regulations, because the law says all businesses must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of: • workers • any other workers who are influenced or directed by the business. So how do you decide what is reasonably practicable for your particular circumstance? Worksafe provide some useful material on this online, much of which is summarised here. In the event of an accident or investigation you’ll be assessed on your interpretation of ‘reasonably practicable’ for your situation, so it’s worth understanding what this phrase means. When it comes to considering health and safety at work then ‘reasonably practicable’ has two parts to it. First: what is possible in the circumstances to ensure health and safety? Secondly, once you’ve established what is possible, then you must consider what is reasonable to do to ensure health and safety in your circumstances. Worksafe propose a few questions to think about when trying to find the appropriate balance between what’s possible and what is reasonable. Firstly, how likely is the risk and how severe is the harm that might result? If the risk is death, serious injury or along term/irreversible health condition, then you need to do more to ensure safety. The greater the potential harm, the greater the action required. Secondly, what do you know - or should you know - about

the hazard or risk and the ways to remove or minimising it? If you’ve got a hazardous activity going on in your workshop you need to have considered what control measures you can put in place to eliminate or minimise the risk. An unguarded spinning blade is obvious a risk, and whether you’ve carried out a documented risk assessment or not, it’s clear that a spinning blade should be guarded. Remember, ignorance about a risk isn’t going to save you from prosecution, especially an obvious risk. Thirdly, how easy is it to guard your spinning blade? Is there a guard that came with the machine? There should be. Is this guard suitable for all the work you do with the machine? Does it stop you carrying out any key tasks on that machine, and if so, are people removing the guard to do these tasks? If so, could you do these takes a different, safer way? Or with a different machine? Is it reasonably practicable to do so? How you remove or minimise a hazard or risk will depend on the situation, type of work, work environment etc.This is where you will need to think carefully about your actions - or inactions - in case you’re called on to justify your decision later. Worksafe also point out that sometimes control measures themselves may introduce risks. For example, wearing gloves might save you from splinters but remove some of the control you have over the material being handled, and therefore increase the likelihood of an accident. Finally, and as a last point to consider, what are the costs to control the risk? And are they grossly disproportionate to the risk? Just because something is possible to do, doesn’t mean it

JOINERS Magazine September 2019 page 94

is reasonably practicable in the circumstances to do it. However, remember that cost can only be used as a reason to not do something when it is grossly disproportionate to the risk. Worksafe give the following e x a m p l e . To m i n i m i s e t h e potential harm (hearing loss) from loud noise, it is a widely used practice for workers to just wear hearing protection (eg ear muffs). However, personal protective equipment should not be the first or only control measure considered. Before using hearing protection to minimise worker exposure to loud noise, businesses should first consider whether so far as is reasonably practicable they can: • replace noisy machinery with quieter machines • install noise barriers and move a noisy machine to a separate room so fewer workers are exposed to the noise • fit silencers to reduce machine noise • rotate jobs to reduce the number of workers exposed to machine noise and reduce the time workers are exposed to excessive noise. Hearing protection is then used if workers are still exposed to unsafe noise levels after other control measures have been applied. You can apply Worksafe’s logic to all sorts of situations, but you can get yourself tied up in complexity. For example, is it proportionate to send all your workers to Germany for training on your edgebander? Of course it isn’t. But does that mean you can just get another operator to train your new staff member instead? Perhaps. But what is that original staff member’s competence? Who

trained him? A factory-trained technician? Or just the operator before him? Ok, now consider the risks. If your new staff member is just feeding panels and isn’t allowed to open the hoods then perhaps the risk is minimal, and peer-to-peer training is reasonably practicable. But what if you’re in Auckland and your edgebander’s supplier is just 10 mins away? Would it be reasonably practicable to invest in an hour or two of training for your new staff member? It would be hard to argue that this wasn’t reasonable. But what if you’re in Te Anau? Now it’s a significant expense to arrange formal training. Would that cost be grossly disproportionate? But seeing as you’re in TeAnau and therefore a long way from your edgebander’s supplier, you need a greater level of competence in-house. So now your new staff member needs to have the hoods up to make fine adjustments inside the machine. What’s reasonably practicable now? As you can see the law is deliberately not black and white. There are always circumstances to be taken into consideration. The fact there are no black and white health and safety rules make it difficult if not impossible to second-guess what Worksafe might consider reasonably practicable in your particular situation. However, if you’ve got some evidence of having given your situation some prior thought, you’re a long way to justifying your actions. Or inactions. Better to give it some thought now than when it’s too late. Kathy fron Jacks


A once in a lifetime award goes to Hideaway Bins - Red Dot Winners! ®

The prestigious international Red Dot Design Awards pay tribute to the best manufacturers and designers of the year. In 2019 there were 5,500 entries from around the world, and only the best products convinced the experts. The manufacturers and designers from the international design scene that created these products were honoured and celebrated on 8 July 2019, at the Red Dot award ceremony in Essen Germany. It was a proud moment for Directors Allen and Jamie Bertelsen from Hideaway Bins, a New Zealand based company, to be recognised on the world stage for their innovative Concelo waste bin design. This shines the light on the research and development capability of

New Zealand as a country but it also shines a beaming light on the kitchen and bathroom industry as Hideaway Bins is a strong and well recognised and trusted brand in the Australian market. It takes a lot of time, "ƛ,/1 +! ,2/ $" 1, !"0&$+ an innovative product that stands out on the world stage, pushes boundaries and isn’t a replication of the direction set by multinational design companies. Allen and Jamie enjoyed celebrating this honour in Germany and found themselves mixing among some of the best design companies in the world such as Ferrari, (who won the Design Team of the Year) as well as Apple, Bosch, Grohe, Hyundai, LG, Philips and Sony to name a few.

The Concelo waste bin is now on display in the Red Dot Museum in Essen, alongside other awardwinning products. It is also forever featured in the 2019 Red Dot DOING year book where the international design community draw inspiration for future products and stay on top of the latest product trends paving the way forward.

“5,500 entries from around the world and only the best convinced the judges.”

honour to have our waste bin recognised for its unique design features that truly help it to stand out in the crowd” says Director Allen Bertelsen.
