The new SAMES KREMLIN MAGMA 500 heaters will heat paint evenly without any burning effect. Their fully stainless-steel construction makes it compatible with most materials. They can be used in paint kitchens for circulation to maintain a constant temperature for each color or for direct heating to increase the temperature of the paint just before the application.
The MAGMA Heaters will optimize the heating of fluid materials. Their modular design makes it possible to replace the lower fluid body without changing the electrical modules eliminating the need to purchase a completely new heater.
As an option, the MAGMA heaters can also heat the atomizing air for faster drying times and increase finish quality in Airmix® or Airspray applications.

ShopBot Tools of Durham, NC, an industry leader in the design and manufacturing of professional and affordable CNC routers, has announced a special offering for attendees at this summer's Association of Woodworkers and Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS) Fair in Las Vegas, NV July 17-20. For those who are seriously exploring CNC solutions in woodworking (or virtually any material), ShopBot will demonstrate the cutting of your design, live at the event.
Ryan Patterson, ShopBot Engineer, noted, “Our tools enable tremendous efficiencies for manufacturers, and really the best way to understand the power and precision of CNC technology is to see it in action. That's why we're providing this opportunity for interested professionals.”
Patterson invites show attendees to send him information about their product and production needs, and include a design, that ShopBot will cut on either the ShopBot PRSalpha 96 x 48, with Automatic Tool Changer, or the ShopBot Desktop MAX ATC. The design can be anything from a pencil sketch to a CAD drawing file. Get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Ryan by July 5th in order to “make the cut.” The ShopBot team will perform material cutting for a limited number of AWFS Fair attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.
ShopBot Tools has specialized in serving the needs of small to medium-size cabinetmaking, furniture, and other woodworking businesses for years. But their tools are also widely used on materials such as plastics, MDF, styrofoam, and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, in a wide array of industries. "This includes aerospace, transportation, consumer products, sign making... the list is endless," noted Patterson.
Manufacturers using wood or other materials are encouraged to get in touch with the ShopBot team to discuss their production needs. “We're not just about providing tools, ShopBot is here to help solve problems. Aside from providing affordable CNC tools, what sets us apart is the group of services and resources we offer to support your success,” says Ted Hall, ShopBot CEO and Founder. Resources include free access to user forums, in-person and online training classes, and technical support.

Elias Woodwork is excited to continue expanding their Thermofoil products with the introduction of a new line of 5-piece Rigid Thermofoil (RTF) doors and drawer fronts. Using a 5-piece miter construction, these doors more closely resemble real wood doors and drawer fronts with the grain running in the direction of the stile and rail. Not only do RTF products offer color consistency throughout your project, they offer simulated exotic wood grain and painted doors at a considerable savings. They also offer the added benefit of being scratch, fade and stain resistant with joints that are not as affected by temperature variations. A significant feature to consider with RTF is the availability of nearly any accessory for your project including hundreds of molding profiles, corbels, valances, shelves and more. See our selection of wood molding profiles which can be wrapped to match the color of your project. With a 5 year warranty and shorter lead times, this product line can be an ideal option for new remodel and refacing projects.
Currently these doors are available in 5 frame profiles and 10 trendy colors that include wood grains and solid colors. Be sure to see the online gallery to view the new doors style and colors available. Elias is working on expanding the color collection and hope to have more options available in the near future.
Since 1983, Elias Woodwork has been manufacturing cabinetry and millwork components. Over the years we have developed a vast product selection with high quality finishes and competitive prices that continue to grow as we meet the needs of industry professionals. As a lean manufacturer, we can cater to a wide range of industries across North America and internationally.

This innovative system adds functionality and style to usually difficult-to-access areas such as base corner cabinets in L-shaped and U-shaped kitchens and end cabinets of kitchen islands.
Ergonomic, QANTO is composed of two trays that rise from inside the cabinet at the push of a button, displaying their contents in full view and making everything easy to reach. Push the same button to make them descend back inside the cabinet. The trays are designed with an elegant crystal-glass effect rim that outlines the QANTO on the countertop.
