“We also made all the cabinets for our new facility. We engineered them on CAD software and it automatically sent the code to the (Rover). It chops them up, into literally thousands of pieces, and drills the holes for the shelves and dadoes out the holes. It was really nice for making the cabinets.” Window Creations, LLC, counts many churches and secular clients among its growing list of customers. The company routinely works with unconventional shapes not customary to other types of windows, according to Buehrer, who explained how the integration between his Biesse and Intermac machines works. “When we design a window frame, we are actually designing the wood, glass and metal fabrication,” he said. “So, when we do the CAD drawings, we can follow all the same tracery. Because ours isn’t like a rectangle; everything is complex geometry and curved. It’s almost a rarity to have straight lines, so you’re engineering the wood below then the aluminum frame above, which we fabricate from raw material. Then we bend it, and using CNC machines, we route it and secure it all together, and then we cut our glass. Think of it as three different layers. We use Intermac and Biesse for two of those three layers.” #ThinkForward is a major tenet of Biesse Group’s core philosophy and Buehrer said that message resonates with his company as well. “We’re not your normal stained glass studio although that’s what we’ve been doing for 30 years,” he said. “We’re much greatly expanded, which pretty much explains our forward thinking. If you’re standing still, you’re getting behind.” For more information on Window Creations, LLC, contact Reggie Buehrer at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the company’s web site: www.bstudios.net
“We use the Rover S for three-dimensional type coves. It’s a little more than just cutting out a two-dimensional piece. We use software that allows us to go in and put those coves on it and do some really cool things."
