Combination Door Lock

AGAM’s new Combination Door Lock is a substantial upgrade for customers who demand the highest quality, security and flexibility. Unlike other offerings, this new unit consists of an integrated lock and handle rather than separate components.

Keeping up with keys on the show floor can be challenging to say the least.  No longer will you need to decipher which key goes with which lock and receive multiple requests for replacement keys from clients/customers.

With 8,000 possible pass code combinations, the new Combination Door Lock can be tailored to each customer.  Combinations can be changed on show site giving you ultimate control.  And since it offers a matte chrome finish and cast alloy construction, it is built to last.

Technical Details

 

The Combination Door Lock is available for purchase now and can be purchased as part of a Combination Door Frame Kit (Reference: 818 01).  Please send an email to info@agam.com or contact your sales representative today to receive more information and pricing.

LED Accent Lighting

Lighting2With our new LED Lighting Components, we opened a large array of possibilities.  Not only can we create back lit frames for graphics, but these lights work well as accent lighting.  Here is how we created our LED accent lighting.

Take an extrusion, like our VS76 or VS108, and remove one side.  The large square profiles create the perfect housing for the LED strip.  It was tall enough and wide enough to fit our lights easily inside.  We attached the lights using the mounting holes on metal strip and bolted it to the extrusion.

Attach one of our LED strips, and remove the lenses.  The lenses were removed to allow the light to spread evenly throughout the extrusion.

Untitled-5iA 1/8” thick, semi-transparent, white acrylic panel makes an effective diffuser for the LEDs.  The light reflects off the aluminum surface and is directed toward the acrylic panel.  Next, you need to place an end cap on each end of the extrusion.  This helps capture the light and reflect it toward the acrylic panel.

Special end plates were designed so the Accent Light can be incorporated with our other extrusions.  One plate is for attaching horizontally, and another plate for using the Accent Light vertically.  Both plates work without blocking any light from the light strip.

The accent lighting can be used in an exhibit, an office, or anywhere an aesthetic lighting solution is needed.  We have created Accent Lights in up to 8’ lengths, in both VS76 and VS108.  Ask our sales reps about how we can incorporate our LED strips in your design.

AGAM Sliding Door

AGAM has six designers on staff, each of them with a strong background in various fields of design. They support the project management teams, providing fully engineered solutions to customers and support for the fabrication specialists in the plant. So, it is only natural that they create new products based on the recommendations and requests they receive from our clients.

Creating the Sliding Door at AGAM

The contemporary sliding door was designed as a stylish alternative to the regular swinging door. Every aspect has been designed with our client’s needs in mind. From form to function, AGAM designed this product to work as great as it looks. Here are five benefits to using the AGAM Sliding Door:

1. The AGAM Sliding Door Maximizes Space

Whether it’s a conference room or a storage closet, every inch counts in the exhibit design industry. The sliding door allows designers to maximize space and create privacy at the same time.

2. The AGAM Sliding Door is Completely Customizable

The track is made of extrusion MR1200 and the door is made of extrusion PH1070 or PH1003. AGAM can cut these extrusions to any length, so the sliding door can fit any doorway. You could even replace your current swinging door. Or, if your doorway is large enough, AGAM can make a double sliding door.

3. The AGAM Sliding Door is Easy to Assemble

It has an upper track that attaches to the partition after the fact. Simply build the wall using only a hex key or use an existing wall, and then simply add the upper track with a clever specially designed part. The door can then be hung in place and slides using two roller brackets, which hook onto the track.

4. The AGAM Sliding Door Can Give You Peace of Mind

The sliding door can be locked with a key for security. The spring-loaded lock is attached to the door and bolts into the track.

5. The AGAM Sliding Door Has A Comfortable Grip

The newly designed ergonomic handle gives more space for the user’s fingers and allows the door to close tightly.

Customer’s Parts List

Recently, a customer, who had never used the AGAM Aluminum Modular System, requested one of our Project Coordinator’s assistance on a new design. The customer said he had prepared a parts list but wasn’t confident that he had included all of the proper connectors or extrusions to do so. We suggested he send over a rough hand sketch so we could determine the proper extrusions and connectors. By using AGAM’s technical catalog, we explained how each extrusion would connect, as well as which connectors would work best.

At AGAM we value innovation and customer service. These AGAM are deeply incorporated in our approach to new product development.  Taking into account the latest in industry trends and client feedback we aim to create the most dynamic aluminum modular system.

A recent improvement to the the AGAM aluminum modular system came in the re-evaluation of a popular accessory: the L Shelf Bracket.

 

The Original Manufacturing Process of the L Shelf Bracket at AGAM

AGAM’s L Shelf Bracket Redesign Using Laser Technology

Product inconsistencies from using punch press tool

The L Shelf Bracket is used to provide a platform for mounting shelves. In the past, AGAM manufactured the tool in house the with a punch press and long strips of steel. At the time, this technique was the most cost-effective and utilized the latest in technology to produce the L Shelf Bracket in large quantities. However, after each use, it was necessary to dismantle the punch press for sharpening.

AGAM Invests in the Latest Laser Technology for Aluminum Modular System Product Redesigns

We needed to find a solution to reduce labor hours and to maximize accuracy and efficiency in production. We decided the best solution was to use the laser, a process referred to as “lights out manufacturing”.

The Redesigned Laser Cut AGAM L Shelf Bracket

Using the laser required a re-think of the L Shelf Bracket. Each piece is now not cut as a single piece, but rather it is part of two sub-frames that surround the L Shelf Bracket and holds the group of parts together. One sub-frame is discarded and recycled and the other holds the group of parts in place for tapping and bending.

The Benefits of AGAM’s Laser Technology with the L Shelf Bracket

L Shelf Brackets made with AGAM’s laser technology

With the use of the laser technology, we were able to control quality and accuracy while decreasing production time and the number of non-compliant parts were left behind. We also used the laser beam to control the placement of parts on the bender. Angles are now consistent, the operator is safely guided through the bending process, and the CAM program is saved on the machine, which is used each time such part needs to be made.

We feel laser technologies have raised our dedication to quality to a new level. Not only has the quality of the product improved but, we can now make subtle changes to the parts quickly and efficiently rather than investing in and waiting for a new tool for the punch press. We can now adapt to the market quickly, saving AGAM time and money so we can pass these savings along to our customers.

Designing the AGAM FH Door

New Product Launch at AGAM - FH Door

FH Door Demo

With the rapid development of Silicone Edge Fabric (SEG) frames, we were not surprised to get requests for “fabric” doors. We took this concept and launched AGAM’s new product, the FH Door

Initially, one of our Industrial Designers fabricated a demo door that was 2’ x 2’, to see what needed to be fine tuned before fabricating the full sized door. The designer then went into our plant to discuss details with the production manager. In less than eight hours, the demo of the FH Door had been created!

State-of-the-Art AGAM Production and Design Process

AGAM is one of the only companies that has nearly everything housed under a single roof in the United States. With state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained production specialists, we create precision fabricated products at a very fast turnaround.

The FH Door with double-sided SEG is now available as a special order. It also works quite well in conjunction with a FH1490 design. We’ve had customers order the full size door and we were able to deliver it the next day.

Stay tuned for our next innovation. Here’s a possibility…a curved fabric door!

Conference Room Design Idea with AGAM System – Sliding Door

AGAM Systems is more than just a manufacturer of extrusions and accessories. Rather, we are designers with infinite possibilities.

As an Industrial Designer at AGAM, I was tasked with creating a structure that would close off the conference room. Initially, the conference room was designed as a “semi-open space,” but it was difficult to conduct meetings without disturbing the other employees. My objective was to create a door that would act as both a sound barrier and give the room more privacy.

Designing and Rendering the Sliding Door within AGAM Systems

Conference Room Design Idea with AGAM System – Sliding Door

AutoCAD Rendering of the Conference Room Partition.

I began designing the sliding door by using clear glass for the top and bottom of the partition and frosted glass for the middle panel to create a visual barrier. Then I rendered the conference room partition in AutoCAD to insure the right fit, form, and function.

Next, I produced a 3D StudioMax rendering, which I presented to my fellow workers as a visual to gather a consensus on the overall look and feel of the design. They agreed that this design fit seamlessly with the current office aesthetic: sleek, modern, and contemporary.

Fabrication and Installation of the Sliding Door within AGAM Systems

For fabrication, all materials came from the plant, were cut-to-size, and installed (by only two people) using no tools, just hex keys. Because of the inherent modularity of the system, installation was completed in less than a day. There was no noise, no interference with people being on the phone, and no dust or smell on the job site.

The improvement, like other improvements we have made, is accomplished by using the AGAM System, which is visually appealing, easy to design with, and simple to install.
