How it Works
The PEANUT 1 connector is designed for manufacturers who have 3-axis+ CNC nesting machines.
The PEANUT 1 is made of a strong reinforced plastic and has rows of teeth around the body to provide high gripping strength when inserted.
Self-clamping, single component connector
Only one CNC machining process
Creates an incredibly strong joint
Quick and simple assembly
Ability to reassemble many times
Designed from glass fibre reinforced nylon
The recess of the connector and the corresponding key hole are all machined on the face of the panel. As only face machining is required, manufacturers create all panels for furniture in one machining operation.
Once inserted, all panels made with PEANUT® components can be packed flat and depending on the tightness of the joint, can be assembled with no tools.
The body shape is designed for fast machining, requiring only a 25mm and 5mm drill bit to create the recess for the connector. Bevelled edges make aligning the PEANUT 1 easy and the small 5mm notch guides the component into the perfect position. The PEANUT 1 is available in 8 colours, enabling it to blend with many wood finishes.
The PEANUT® head has been specially designed to maximise ease of assembly and joint strength. Due to its dome shape, the PEANUT head smoothly slides along the slot created by the T-shaped PEANUT Cutter.
In assembly, the PEANUT head rides over the lip of the PEANUT slot and slides to the end, this action creates a strong clamping force, pulling the two panels together from the inside.
