Our Manufacturing Process

Once the production/processing team has entered your order into our custom developed software and your order released into the production, the electronic files are transmitted to the factory floor for manufacturing. The integration of the production system and the computerised machines ensures that the product is exactly as intended at the design stage. An operator loads the data from a completed design into the controlling computer. Artline Kitchens selects only the highest quality manufacturing materials, conforming to the relevant Australian Standards and our stock levels are constantly monitored to maintain impressive turnaround times for all our customers.

Precision Machining

On the day that an order is scheduled to begin, the electronic files are loaded into the computer system that controls the flatbed router machines. The required sheet stock is placed on a router bed where it is quickly cut and shaped into the components that will become the finished order.

A turret on each router automatically loads the various tools needed to produce the parts, drill holes & cut rebates for hinges. Our two identical flatbed routers are world-leading industrial machines representing state-of-the-art cabinet-making technology, offering a degree of precision that greatly contributes to the quality of our finished product.

Edge Finishing

Once the router has finished cutting and profiling, each component is labeled and sent for edge banding.

The computer-controlled edge banding machine applies PVC edging to components. Each component passes through the machine several times, the trim being applied to one edge in each pass. The components return to the operator on a conveyor bed, allowing a single tradesperson to complete the edge banding stage with great efficiency.

Quality Control

Once all the cabinetry components for a complete job have been assembled, each piece is carefully inspected by a qualified tradesperson. If a defect is found, a new component is normally manufactured to replace the defective one. Once all components have passed quality inspection, the job is delivered.
