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. 

TIP-ON BLUMOTION can be used with LEGRABOX, TANDEMBOX and MOVENTO. Assembly is simple and tool-free. No other processing steps are necessary for the cabinet, front and drawer box. With a minimum front gap of just 2.5 millimetres, TIP-ON BLUMOTION is ideal for use in kitchens, but can also be used in all other living areas. Should the pull-out or drawer ever be pulled open or pushed closed manually, TIP-ON BLUMOTION will still remain fully functional at all times.

    Hi! Even the loaded drawers have problem closing. I mean i have to apply really substantial force to make it close and not bounce back. Is there any way to adjust the sensitivity of the closing mechanism? Any manuals for that? Thanks

    Hi, I have similar problems with my drawers using TIP-ON BLUMOTION. The drawers are bouncing back; I need either to follow the drawer all the way and force it to close, or push the drawer really hard. I have 4-drawer cabinet, drawers are LEGRABOX 22″ deep, 13.5″ wide. Runners are 40kg 750.5501S. I actually tried both L1 and L3 sets: drawers are bouncing back, and need substantial force to close. Not that smooth motion that is shown on your videos. Can you please advice what can be wrong; is there way to adjust/disable bouncing back motion? Thanks!

      Hi Michael,
      thank you for your message. As TIP-ON BLUMOTION is a 100% mechanical solution, it requires a certain amount of kinetic energy to reactivate the springs inside the TIP-ON BLUMOTION unit for the next release.
      This is where the bouncing back comes from. However, the “weakest” unit L1 should show a lot less resistance than the L3, and as soon as the drawers are loaded with the designated content, usually the momentum when closing the drawer is sufficient to overcome the resistance of the springs.
      Could it be that your drawers are very narrow and/or are not loaded with any weight at the moment?

      Kind regards
      Matthias

    We just installed the tip on blumotion. It closes perfectly BUT it only opens about 4 inches. We have tried multiple times…..always 4 inches. We MUST have it opening all the way. What do you suggest? Thanks for any help.

      Dear Ena,

      depending on the nominal length of the runner system you are using, there are one or more different “strengths” of TIP-ON BLUMOTION units. Also, it would be interesting if you have TIP-ON BLUMOTION for LEGRABOX/MOVENTO, or TANDEMBOX.
      In any case, the amount of load inside the TIP-ON BLUMOTION drawer as well as the strength of the TIP-ON BLUMOTION unit determines how far the drawer opens.
      On the following website you find our recommendation which TIP-ON BLUMOTION unit to use for which expected load: https://www.blum.com/us/en/products/motion-technologies/tip-on-blumotion/legrabox/programme/
      On the TIP-ON BLUMOTION unit housing (on the coloured nylon part of it) you’ll find a sign showing which unit is in use with your drawer. I highly suspect that your unit is simply too weak for the load and that you should use a stronger unit. If your main goal is to have it fully opened, most probably the strongest unit will be the proper one.

      Can you please send us more information about which nominal length is in use, the load capacity of the runner system, how much load you have inside the drawer and which type of TIP-ON BLUMOTION unit you are using?

      Perhaps we could also connect you with our US customer service so that they can help you find a solution step-by-step.

      Best regards
      Matthias
