Nothing but your hands. The furniture are delivered with the connection elements implemented in the panels so you only need to click the furniture together.
Is it possible to dismantle the furniture?
Yes, you can completely dismantle the furniture without damaging the product. That also means that you can put the furniture together again afterwards.
I'm a furniture producer. How do I implement Threespine® in my products?
The Threespine technology is available for licensing. By signing a license agreement with Välinge, you will get help with machinery and tool-set up, setting of the profile, test production and all other types of support required to get you started.
What kind of machinery is required?
Threespine can be produced with conventional production equipment: through-feed machines or edge banders for high-volume production, or CNC machines for smaller production series. You will also need an inserter machine for automatic, semi-automatic or manual insertion depending on your production volumes.

What materials can I use with Threespine®?

My products consist of different thicknesses of panels and components, surely I can not use Threespine®?
Of course you can! You can connect different thicknesses of panels with Threespine since it is not depending material thickness but rather the size of the profile.
Can I use Threespine® in other material thicknesses than standard 16-18 mm Particleboard?
Absolutely - do not be limited in your product development by the current standards using traditional assembly techniques. Threespine can be used down to 6 mm/MDF and 8 mm/Particleboard in the most common profiles. For back panels it is possible to go down to a thickness of to 2.5 mm.
