Default Strangest magnetic drive joinery system

I just happened upon this system today. I had never heard of anything like it before.
In Europe, knock down furniture is very popular as we tend to live in smaller apartments and have smaller cars, so it makes it easier when buying and moving.

funny hight tech ! interesting!
never seen it before.

I' ll have to get one and see how it's made.
Many reasons can make it fail after some time:
corrosion, creep of material used,change in viscosity of lubricant, normal loose in
magnetic properties.
But intersting,as i like hidden assemblies.

Hi Gavin

In the states we been using something like that for years, many times when you buy a cabinet,etc. it will come in a box and some " assembly required " on the box the norm it's very cheap cabinets ..but it can be put up or taking down quick..the norm is Allen head drive bolts..they always give you the Allen hex key in the box the norm..but most just pitch them..but it's not a big deal by the time you want to move them the bolts have pulled out the threaded insert anyway

This Invis system is very different from what is used in any knock-down furniture that I have ever seen! A place where this gets utilized is in scenarios where (otherwise) blind connections are made in very high-end homes for the stairways. Super-strong connections can be made using this system. It is the specified manner that the fine home-builders insist on (we're talking about houses in the 8,000 and up square footage).
A few years ago, I was working on the product development of a similar product for a big customer of mine - we found this and researched it thoroughly and after buying and testing it, we decided we had been beat to the punch! This is a first-class system! The minimum "starter kit" for this stuff was over $600.00 when we purchased it and that gets you a small number of fasteners. This should not be confused with connectors for "throw-away furniture".

I think you're talking about the kind of thing Ikea uses a lot of. Completely different.

Interesting system, I see they have dealer in Aust, but at the price Otis said it is, that is a bit to dear for me.

Cheers,
Mark.
