SCM Partners in The Generator, a High Point Furniture Lab


October 6, 2021 | Bill Esler

High Point, NC—Wood manufacturing technology supplier SCM has formed a partnership with The Generator, a High Point, NC, production space for furniture makers, designers, and manufacturers.

SCM is promoting the grand opening of The Generator on October 18 – 19, timed to coordinate with Woodworking Manufacturing Month during October 2021. Located in Plant 7 at Congdon Yards, The Generator features 11 state-of-the-art woodworking machines that are available for small-to-medium production runs of components of solid wood or panel.

SCM will feature the grand opening of The Generator in High Point, NC on October 18-19, as part of its Woodworking Manufacturing Month program.

Developed in partnership with SCM Woodworking Technology, The Generator makes industrial-grade woodworking machinery accessible to all furniture designers and makers, interior designers and architects—as well as small, medium, and large furniture companies.The turn-key production site allows even hand-built furniture makers to produce single items, or scale up for multiple-copy production runs.

The Generator provides access to Material ConneXion, a library of materials samples created by MaterialBank.

The Generator also provides access to the Material ConneXion, a library of materials samples created by MaterialBank, part of Sandow Media. With more than 10,000 materials in its collection, designers have access to an assortment of product samples from textiles and fibers to powders and coatings. And with a self-service setup, visitors can browse materials and contact textile manufacturers for purchasing options whenever they feel inspired.

SCM is said to have invested $2 million in equipment, including three CNC routers: a 5-axis Balestrini Idea; an Accord 25FX pod-and-rail; and a Morbidelli X200 flatbed router with offload rake. Other equipment includes a Gabbiani S115 CNC panel saw, L’Invincibile F7 jointer, CBC Action E case clamp, Class SI sliding table saw, and Olimpic K560 HP edgebander with AirFusion+ technology.

According to Business High Point – Chamber of Commerce, which operates The Generator at its Congdon Yards Plant 7 business incubator, access to the world-class equipment lets designers create anything they can dream up, while entrepreneurs and innovators can advance daring ideas into prototype and production more quickly and economically than before. Medium and large companies are expected to use The Generator to expand product offerings and knock out test pieces that would otherwise interrupt sorely needed in-house production time.
