What’s new with the latest app update?

We are always striving to optimize our EASY ASSEMBLY app for our users. With the latest update there are many changes that help to make our app more efficient and intuitive. See the most important changes here:

1.) Reduced memory: instead of 116 MB (Version 2.2) you only need 9 MB (Version 3.0). 

2.) Interactive installation instructions & short videos

We replaced the Augmented-Reality (AR) technology with a compact HTML technologie. Now you find new interactive installation instructions in our app that provide you with individual support in sophisticated assembly situations of selected products. Furthermore, there are new short-videos for the assembly of our products. Both lead to the significant reduction of memory usage.

TIP-ON depth adjustment

TANDEM TIP-ON: What is depth adjustment for and when do we use it?

White cabinet with TANDEM TIP-ON runnersDifferent materials are used in the manufacturing of wooden drawers, which is why each wooden drawer is individual and has slightly different lengths, widths and heights. To counteract these “production tolerances”, we have developed depth adjustment for our TANDEM runner system in connection with our TIP-ON motion technology.

This helps to ensure an optimal connection between the wooden drawer and TANDEM locking device.

How do you use the “Full/Half” setting of the SERVO-DRIVE unit?

Das Bild zeigt eine SERVO-DRIVE Einheit die im Schrank eingebaut wirdHave you ever noticed short pull-outs (NL 270–300) opening with too much force when you are assembling kitchens fitted with SERVO-DRIVE? If ‘yes’, read on to find out how to reduce the force generated by the SERVO-DRIVE unit. If the drawer runner is shorter than 350 mm, you can adjust the unit to reduce the stroke movement to just half. This setting is marked ‘half’ on the unit.

In order to ensure that the TIP-ON BLUMOTION function is trigged in TANDEMBOX without problems, it is important to set the front gap to the optimal measurement of at least 2.5 mm. We have developed a front gap template to make this very task quick and easy for you.

In the following video, I will show you how to use this template:

  1. before fronts are installed.
  2. to check the front gap of fronts that have already been installed again. Read more

Opening angle stops 155° hinges

What opening angle stops do we have for 155°-hinges and how are they installed?

For CLIP top 155°-hinges, at Blum we offer two different opening angle stops: 70T7503N and 70T7503N09. The following article describes the different opening angle stops and the applications they are best suited to.

 

This picture shows a CLIP top 155° hingeOpening angle stops are used to prevent the door from colliding with walls/protruding cabinets. At Blum, we provide a solution to this problem for CLIP top 155°-hinges in the form of opening angle stop 70T7503N09. This limits the opening angle to 92°.

Why 92°? This means that 0-protrusion is always guaranteed for the 155°-hinge and that the drawer does not collide with the door when it slides out of the cabinet.

TIP-ON BLUMOTION: mechanical opening support

Handle-less fronts with TIP-ON now also close silently and effortlessly in the way you are accustomed to – thanks to combination with BLUMOTION

Up uThe picture shows the mechanical opening support for drawers called TIP-ON BLUMOTION. ntil recently, there were two opening support system options for handle-less fronts at Blum: mechanical with TIP-ON and electromechanical with SERVO-DRIVE. The electromechanical opening support system has always worked in combination with BLUMOTION dampening, but now we have combined the TIP-ON function with BLUMOTION dampening too.
A simple touch on the front is, as you are used to with TIP-ON, all that is needed to activate TIP-ON BLUMOTION. The BLUMOTION now activates when closing the drawer or the pull-out, ensuring a silent and effortless closing action. For the BLUMOTION function to achieve optimum functioning, the pull-outs should be loaded. The BLUMOTION does work when these are unloaded as well, but more energy (force) is required for closure.  The settings have been designed for the weight of a loaded pull-out, as is usually the case in actual living areas.  Read more
