Which synchronisation should I use for my internal cabinet width (ICW)?
We recommend synchronising the two TIP-ON BLUMOTION units in order to optimise the trigger behaviour and functionality of TIP-ON BLUMOTION. These two units form the centrepiece of TIP-ON BLUMOTION, and can be assembled tool-free, as can all of the TIP-ON BLUMOTION components. The synchronisation extends the trigger range and makes it possible to open pull-outs by pressing almost anywhere on the front, meaning optimal trigger behaviour is achieved, even with wide cabinets. Synchronisations can be inserted from cabinet widths of 300 mm and up. Read more
Blum EASY ASSEMBLY app: new functions available with the current update
Need digital support day-to-day in your work as a carpenter/fitter? Blum’s EASY ASSEMBLY app is a helpful tool in all matters relating to the assembly of Blum fittings, ensuring you have all the latest relevant assembly information at your fingertips whenever you need it. It saves time and ensures that our furniture is assembled to the highest standard. EASY ASSEMBLY has been designed to be intuitive, making it easy to use. Using real and virtual images, the interactive application shows you in very clear terms how to precisely adjust your Blum fittings. Handy assembly videos demonstrate each individual work step and clearly show the adjustment options in detail. The assembly app also includes an overview of all installation instructions, organised according to Blum product group.
When it comes to furniture with handle-less fronts throughout the whole kitchen and all living areas, Blum has a huge variety of options!
Extensive surfaces, clear-cut designs, handle-less fronts – these are the clearly identifiable trends in the furniture industry. And with minimalist design, the spotlight is increasingly being placed on the functionality of furniture. Our fittings solutions come into their own here as we ensure that furniture is convenient to use on a day-to-day basis, while also meeting requirements in terms of design. At Blum, we often talk about “1 3 4 ∞ – infinite possibilities for handle-less furniture” in this context. Perhaps you have wondered in the past what this actually means?
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 until 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
How many pull-outs can be realised with CABLOXX per locking bar?
In some situations, it is necessary to lock up pieces of furniture e.g. in order to store personal items of value at home or in your office. We have introduced a new product called CABLOXX for this situation, and for shop fittings. CABLOXX is a system-independent locking system, which means that it can be used in combination with LEGRABOX, TANDEMBOX, MOVENTO and TANDEM, or any other motion technologies.
CABLOXX has another function, tip protection, on top of the furniture’s ‘seal’ function. This is intended above all for free-standing furniture. Tip protection prevents more than one pull-out from being drawn out from the cabinet. This prevents the furniture from tipping over when the pull-outs are loaded.
How do you adjust the AVENTOS HF lift mechanism to the front weight?
One important assembly step for the AVENTOS lift system is the adjustment of the two lift mechanisms to the weight of the furniture front. If the two lift mechanisms are not set correctly for the front weight, the front will spring up when opened, or close again by itself, as you can see in the video.
You know that lift mechanisms have been adjusted correctly if the lift system stays in any opening position in the end. It is important to adjust the lift mechanism to ensure smooth functioning, especially if lift mechanisms are fitted with SERVO-DRIVE.
In this video we explain how you can adjust the lift mechanisms correctly using a cordless screwdriver.
How can our app and universal marking template help in the assembly of AVENTOS HF?
Finding the correct position within the cabinet for the pegs is one of the first steps in assembling an AVENTOS HF. Use the universal marking template together with the EASY ASSEMBLY app to find the correct position for the lift mechanism in no time. This will enable you to drill the holes for the pegs, having worked out the height and installation depth for them.
In this video, I will show you exactly what to do – step by step.
SERVO-DRIVE: How many SERVO-DRIVE units can be operated with one Blum transformer?
Fifty SERVO-DRIVE drive units can be operated with one Blum transformer. However, the following should be taken into account for the drive units for pull-outs and for AVENTOS lift systems in this case: one SERVO-DRIVE for AVENTOS drive unit requires around the same amount of power as three SERVO-DRIVE drive units for pull-outs.
What are the reasons for the AVENTOS lift system front not closing properly?
It is often the case that the lift system front for the AVENTOS HF does not close properly following adjustment. There are two potential problem situations here:
1) You have adjusted the gaps and then closed the telescopic arm. The front is protruding in the middle. Read more
SERVO-DRIVE flex: Does the refrigerator being filled affect the reference run?
Sometimes we are asked whether the refrigerator needs to be switched on and whether the refrigerator door should already be fully loaded before carrying out a reference run. The answer is no.
