homagViken, Sweden—Välinge Innovation said it has further strengthened its collaboration with machine supplier Homag China—signing a cooperation agreement that allows Välinge to offer its licensees in China next-level access and support to the latest generation of automated inserters for both the 5G Fold Down locking system and Threespine click furniture technology.

“We want our licensees to have the best experience possible and this agreement will mean even more advantages to our partners in China,” said Magnus Holgesson, regional manager for China & Asia, Välinge Innovation. “Now installation, commissioning, after-market support offering corrective and preventative maintenance and access to spare parts will all be available locally—it’s a whole new level of convenience and care.”

The addition of the automated inserter in a 5G or Threespine production line brings with it several benefits over manual insertion. Productivity and quality control are increased as the floorboards or furniture panels are only handled once in the process—freeing resources and factory floor space and ensuring a consistent, quality insertion from a machine that is both easy to use and service, the company said.

As a result of the agreement, a Threespine automated inserter has been installed at the Välinge support center in Kushan that opened in 2019. Välinge said having the machine on-site will allow the company to offer its licensees a first-rate demonstration and training environment for the latest inserter technology. The agreement has had an immediate effect with one 5G Fold Down automated inserter currently being installed at a licensee’s facility in South China, according to the company.

“In Homag China, we have found an ideal partner with the same exacting standards that we at Välinge have,” Holgesson said. “It enhances our local presence in China even more — we’re excited by the benefits it will bring our many licensees in the region.”
