Trained as an architect at the University of Auckland, Vincent Huang and his wife Tiffany started Vikon Ltd, an architectural design and construction  company, in 2011. To get control over product quality and leadtimes, just over a year ago they purchased a cabinet-making business in West Auckland. And so, Boxmakers by Vikon was born.

Vincent chose the Homag 1240FC with airTec for processing laser tape. The 1240FC features automatic set-up of most units, including multi profile tooling on the scraper unit with adjustment accuracy to 0.01mm. “The old edgebander was high maintenance,” explains Vincent. “The Homag is much better. I would say 80% of the time we don’t need to do any manual cleaning of parts after they’ve come off the machine. I also like that I don’t hear any complaints about the Homag from my workers. We have already done quite a few jobs using the airTec system with laser tape. We’re very happy with the result  especially with white board. The finish is virtually seamless.”
